That is how many eggs we got.  To say I am relieved is such an understatement.  I was so worried since my FSH shot up so much since IVF#1.

Today went well.  It took us almost a full 2 hours to get to NYU with all of the traffic.  I was glad I suggested we leave at 8:00.  I was happy there was not much waiting around when I got there; that is the part that usually kills me.  Most of the ER staff and dr.s recognized me.  While that is nice,  and I told them so, I told them I hope they would be not  be offended if I said I really hope not to ever see them again!  I am ready to get off this roller coaster and get pg!

I donned my ever-so-sexy- green gown and blue bonnet and I got all hooked up and ready to go. I was out in a matter of minutes ( as in knocked out) and when they were wheeling me into recovery, I thought I heard them say they got 14.  Of course, when I came to, I had to obsessively check with the nurse to make sure I was not dreaming.  

I definitely had more pain than the last time- they slipped some extra pain killer into my IV- so that helped.    Then they gave me my apple juice and gram crackers.... Best.meal.ever. since I had not eaten (could not eat) since last night!

I slept most of the afternoon, R has been pampering me- he even brought me sunflowers ( my fav!)

I think I will stay home from work tomorrow as I am sure I will still be sore.

Tomorrow makes me nervous.  I know I will be a wreck until I get the fertility report.  I just pray to god  we had some fertilization and some good quality embryos.  I am also hoping to make it to a 5 day transfer like last time. 

So, that is all for now.  Thanks for all of your support!
