15 eggs, and no we are not talking about my chickens here.
After many shots, many blood draws, many ultrasounds, quite
a bit of nausea and other side effects, I finally had the egg
retrieval today. Now, I am resting. In a few days we will
know more and I will return to the hospital for the embryo
transfer. Meanwhile, I am thankful that this part of the
roller coaster ride is over and trying to catch my breath
before the next ride begins.
And no, they are not putting 15 embryos back in! They will
not likely all grow and of those that do, only a small number
will be transferred to me, the rest for be frozen for a future
cycle or if not needed, we will make them available to another
couple tying to conceive.
