Our New Favorit Number Is....

12 - 12 - 12 - 12 - 12 - 12 - 12 - 12 - 12 - 12 - 12 - 12 - 12 - 12 - 12 - 12 - 12!

We are back from the egg retrieval. Everything went very well - did you guess how many they got? They got 12 eggs!!! We have a perfect dozen!!! LOL

You guys KNOW what my biggest fear was - The IV. Turns out my RE prescribed Lidocaine be used for the IV insertion... Bless him! They gave me a small subcu shot of it, and the IV needle went in with no pain whatsoever! Write that down ladies - ask for an Rx for it BEFORE your IV procedures! :)

I am vegging out on the couch... Bo and the cats are hanging out with me. Other than the pain in my ovaries, and my typing errors (millions of errors I tell you) everything is pretty OK.

I'm going to go rest now... Thank you to everyone for all your kind words of encouragement! It really meant a lot to me!

Perfect dozen, doing good! My clinic always does a little local numbing agent before insert the IV. I too am extremely grateful!

That's great! Here's hoping that many of them will fertilize. Rest up now- in a few days you will fo back in for the transfer . Conceiving, just the way G-D intended :)

Hmm, that is a GREAT tip about the lidocaine before the IV! My favorite nurse inserted my IV during my retrieval, and I was caught off guard by how she jammed it into my hand - OUCH!

Congratulations on your perfect dozen and best of luck!!!

New poking around here... 12 is a great number! Grats!

And thanks for the lidocaine tip. I'll have to remember that... since I have HORRIBLE luck with IVs.

WOO HOO! A dozen little eggies with which to work! Fantastic news Dawn. That is great. And I'm definitely writing that down about the Rx. I might need that info someday. Big hugs coming your way and keep us posted.
