11 :)

we got 11 eggs harvested and count ’em 11 eggs fertilized!!!

our embryologist told us that 9 eggs were mature, but that he got the other 2 to play nice and fertilize too. we LOVE our embryologist, really their whole techy team is very helpful, personable and totally dedicated to making happy embryos… just what you want when you hand over your eggs.

dakota is bloated and sore and sleepy and sore and a little queasy and did i mention SORE , so she is laying low through the weekend.

we are most likely looking at a day-5 transfer since, so far, there are so many embryos to chose from (ok, feeling very lucky and blessed at this moment, so a little gloating is ok, right??) and they want to put in the ones that seem to be at the top of their game.

we will do the transfer to me on monday… i am on estrogen patches (2 every two days) and estrodial pill once a day and crinone (progesterone, yuck) every morning. and in case you were wondering, i feel like i am gonna hurl and i have headaches still and the runs. this IVF shit ain’t for sissys!

we’ll update when we know more about our little embryos…
