About 20 more hours

At least my meds look pretty right? They even have cute little hearts on them! Don't let them fool you though- I was supposed to be at work today for my last day- instead I spent half my day throwing up LARGE amounts of my breakfast shake the Mr. made me. I took my trigger shot last night at 8:45 exactly. They are very precise on the time- has the be exactly 35 hours before the retrieval. My ovaries were looking over stimulated on Sunday mornings appt- eggs are getting big- so I got prescribed Dostinex to stop the over stimulation part. I am supposed to be on that 8 days- but there is NO WAY. I called in and told them forget it- NOT taking that stuff ever again. They were okay with that thank goodness. I just took a sleeping pill and it's 2:00 in the afternoon. I am hoping to just sleep the rest of today away with awful this morning was. I'm sorry if I haven't responded to texts and calls- just SO HAPPY tomorrow those babies will begin growing!
Here are the updated stats- I go in at 7 am to Scottsdale tomorrow morning to get put under anesthesia and have all my eggs retrieved. Tomorrow is the big "fertilization" moment I have never had. This is all a first for me and couldn't be more excited! Jonny does his thing tomorrow- I do mine- and than somehow lots of babies are created in a medical lab. I get updates daily on my babies- hoping they are healthy and ready for implantation this Saturday or Sunday! Let's hope for Sunday so I can still make it to my best friends wedding Saturday- that would make all of this perfect. :)

  4. My ovaries were also over stimulated. It was partly a good thing because they got so many eggs out (about 39), but because of it, the recovery from the egg retrieval was super painful. I was also soooo bloated beforehand. Good luck tomorrow and let me know how it goes, and how many eggs they get:)
