Tuesday morning's drive was somewhat quiet but due to my husband we were going to be arriving five minutes late. I am the 10 minutes early kind of gal. It is amazing how he is never late to any of his softball games (wink, wink). I am partially to blame though because I assumed he was awake but he was not. He sometimes wakes up super early and goes to the other room to work. Yesterday he woke up super early and headed to the couch and fell asleep again.
Anywho.. We got there at 7:20 and they called him back at 7:25 to do his thing. Then I walked back with the nurse to the IVF suite to get changed and ready to go. DH made it back after they had put in my IV with just enough time to take a quick before picture, gave me a kiss and off I went across the hall. I was super nervous about the sedation for some reason but after the extreme burn in my IV site I was out! Now I know why Michael Jackson loved Propofol so much, that stuff is uh-mazing.
I kept getting reports on how many eggs they had retrieved. 12, 15, then 22 by the time we left! I got a call later in the day telling us that 18 of them were mature. So I was pretty excited with the results. The Embryologist also told us that my husbands morphology was not good at all. We knew he had issues for sure but I guess this sample was worse off. She said she was glad that we were the only case that morning so she could look really hard for the best ones. Whew. I really feel like God had a big hand in that for sure.
I was in a lot of pain yesterday but pushed tons of Gatorade and water. My husband was the pain pill warden and would only let me have them every four hours which sucked because they wore off after about 2 1/2. I took my last pills at 9:30 last night but woke up very nauseous at 2:30. I was so hot that I had to go sit on the couch with the ceiling fan blowing on high. Then I thought I was going to puke, walked fast to the bathroom and broke into a heavy sweat. After that I tried to find a comfortable position and get some sleep. The pain is a lot better today and I have only taken one pain pill so far.
Around 8am this morning we got our first embryo update and........ 15 fertilized! Once again she said she was surprised with the amount due to the morphology. I feel so blessed at this point and will anxiously be awaiting our daily call!
My husband is upset about his morphology and has went to Dr. Google to ask questions. Yes, this is the same husband that told me to stay off of the Internet and to just ask the doctor. I told him once again that she picked the best of the best and to be grateful of the high amount we have.
Thank you for all of your prayers and good thoughts. I will continue to let you guys know about my daily reports even if that is all the post is about.
We are one step closer to one or two baby Storks!!
