Yesterday was my egg retrieval and I'm thrilled to report that they retrieved 24 eggs!!  That is a crazy amount.  Also, 24 just happens to be my favorite number :-)
Lucky #24!
The embryologist called earlier today and let us know that of the 24, 14 of them fertilized.  That is amazing and I'm so relieved that with that number, the odds are in our favor that we'll have some to freeze in case this cycle is a BFN.  Phew!

I'm still feeling a little rough - crampy, lots of pressure, tired...not much actual pain though thankfully. I took Percocet yesterday for the pain but am just on Tylenol now. I'm hoping the rest of this will go away by tomorrow.  

I don't have energy right now to write all about the ER but will try to post again tomorrow.
In the meantime: Yay!
