They got 15 eggs this morning. I was surprised. Even though I felt like I had at least 45 water balloons in there when I woke up today I was still surprised. Hopefully at least half of those eggs were mature and fertilized. We'll know tomorrow when they call with the fert report. I'm a bit crampy and slightly groggy from that sweet sweet amazing sleep. Other than that feeling pretty good.

I was anxious and teary going in...don't remember that at last year's ER.The doc that did the retrieval was great, as was the anesthesiologist. Dr. Sleep asked about my "cute little star tattoos" and I was so nervous I just blurted out that they were for Tess and Oliver, my babies that were born too soon. And then the tears started rolling. He was so sweet he rubbed my forehead and said "THIS time it's all gonna be ok." The nurse patted my legs and Dr. Egg Catcher said, "Don't worry we're going to take good care of you." And then... I. Was. Out. ahhhhhhhhhhh. Now if they could only invent some type of drug that could make me sleep until the beta. I'd pay boocoos of cash for that pill.

My beta was scheduled for December 25th! Unfortunately/Fortunately they are closed on Christmas Day. AND the day after. Sigh. Looks like we have to wait until the 27th. After what happened with the FET I'm gonna try my damndest NOT to poas (pee on a stick, for those of you not up on the lingo.)

We'll see if I can hold out. I'm not so big on surprises.

Stay tuned.
