I got the official word Saturday morning that my eggs would be extracted on Monday. So yesterday morning I made the early drive to Houston. It was a pretty easy procedure: I was under general anesthesia so I woke up and thought I'd only blinked and asked the doc when we were starting. "Oh, we're done!" Well alrighty then! It only took about 20 minutes.
So I get the call today that out of the 17 follicles I had growing, they harvested 8 mature eggs. Good news: all 8 were successfully fertilized! EIGHT POTENTIAL BABIES. They'll grow for 5-6 days then get frozen. I have to wait for my next cycle and then after that they can be implanted at any time.
I'M SO EXCITED!!!
