Egg Retrieval Day

Here I am before the retrieval. I felt excited and ready. In this room, I got my IV and then was taken into the operating room, where the last thing I remember was putting my feet into some stirrups. I was out like a light!Dr. Barbieri did my procedure today since Dr. Bankowski is in Spain for a conference. The nurses, doctor and anesthesiologist were all fantastic. SO nice.

Wow--awful--here I am afterward. Bryan said I asked how many eggs they got 3 times. The number was 10! Out of the 10, there were 5 big ones. Tomorrow we'll find out how many were mature and how many fertilized. It only takes one to make a baby! I also asked him to take this picture twice. I guess I wanted to make sure I was "keepin' it real" on my blog. Don't want anyone to get the idea this is a glamorous process. Now I'm on the couch and feeling a little tender down south, but other than that just fine.  

I'll be updating soon! Thanks for all the prayers.


  1. Yay!! Bless those eggs, let them be fertilized!! Had joy in my heart praying for you today.
    I did the same think after I woke up, I kept asking how many did they get, LOL. Rest well precious one!

  2. Thanks for the update, so good to hear! Funny, Steve said I asked about the number of eggs several times too, must be normal...or we're all just the same kind of crazy :-)
    I agree, bless those eggs and the miracle of fertilization! Love and blessings to you and Bryan!

  3. Hooray! Hooray! What is the timeline like now? I thought of you all day yesterday and meant to text you. Praying God turns them into two healthy babies!
