Here are a few pics from this morning that Alex & my Mom took...the last one Alex must have taken right after I came out of the OR - thanks babe.
I went in this morning with just a few butterflies. I think it was the pain after the procedure that I was most nervous about. The OR nurses and anesthesiologist were all wonderful...all women who were making me laugh from the time they took me back until I was out of it and no longer conscious of what was going on. They said I was talking up a storm about all kinds of things once I got the silly juice...nothing too embarrasing, thankfully.
We went over the PIO shots and they marked my backside (per my request) so that Alex knows exactly where to stab me. Two red targets on each hip...no way he can miss. We start the PIO shots tomorrow morning...they have to be taken between 6am-8am. Alex gets up around 6am so that should be a great way to start my day each morning. *slight sarcasm*
They retrieved 6 eggs today. Now we're just praying they get together with Alex's 'contribution' and make us some embryos!
I'm cramping but not too bad. Just a small amount of bleeding. They have given me some good drugs for the pain though, so I'm going to have to stop typing here soon. It's starting to kick in.
I'll update again when I hear back from the embryologist tomorrow.
Thanks for all of your prayers!
Love you all,
