Retrieval went well. We got 19 eggs which is a much safer number than the 28 we got last time. The clinic was running behind because another procedure came up before they did my retrieval. My RE came in the room before the anesthesiologist and asked if we had any questions. We didn't, so he promptly left. That is all I saw of him today since he came into the room for the retrieval after I was out and left before I woke up. I definitely prefer the RE who did the retrieval last time, but he was out of town so couldn't do it. I also found out he doesn't work on Tuesdays so Dr. K will be doing my transfer as well.
I felt like they were trying to kick me out pretty soon after. They didn't give me a whole bunch of time once I woke up before they asked me if I was ready to get dressed. It was fine because I was happy to be on our way home.
I napped for a few hours after we got home, ate some lunch and snacks and watched some Grey's Anatomy on Netflix. This afternoon W told me that I tensed and woke up as soon as the retrieval started and complained that I was uncomfortable a few times. The anesthesiologist instructed W to make sure my arm was straight (to help with the IV), and gave me some more meds. That might explain why I was so groggy after. I'm glad I don't remember this. It's a little freaky.
The embryologist came in and told us about the 19 and that we will get a call tomorrow about how many fertilized.
I'm feeling bloated, a bit crampy and have a headache, but nothing like last time with that whole stomach bug thing. The cat napped with me in bed all afternoon. I think I'll still take tomorrow off to relax and recoup even though I probably could work. Looking forward to the fertilization report tomorrow.
