Retrieved and Relieved!

I'm a little loopy thanks to the pain meds, but I wanted to post a quick update. The retrieval went really well!! We had a grand total of 30 eggs. A few of them were immature, but at least 20 of them looked good. We're on OHSS watch, and I'm forcing fluids to the point that I could float away. But overall I'm feeling ok tonight. We're tentatively planning transfer for Wednesday.

I have to say, I've really been struck by God's faithfulness today. I could feel His presence today, in a way that I haven't for a while.

So, next step...waiting for the fertilization results. We should hear around noon tomorrow. In the meantime, I'm bugging C about getting the computer fixed. I want to curl up with a cup of tea and get caught up on my reading. Commenting is a challenge using the phone!

Yay, congrats on a great number of eggs! So thankful you felt God with you today, and I am praying he continues to give you peace and guidance the rest of this cycle. Rest up and keep us posted :)

Holy smokes! Hope the OHSS stays away and you have a great report tomorrow. If you have huge numbers still going strong on Wed, would they aim for a blast transfer Friday?
