This morning was our Egg Retrieval!
I woke up super early
and straightened my hair
put on my favorite black top paired with some
pearls and my new favorite black heels :)
Feeling pretty always puts me in a better mood
and I wanted to be in the best mood possible today!
We arrived a little early to finish up some paperwork
and pay for the anesthesiologist
We waited for about thirty minutes before being called back.
It was crazy to walk through the back of the office
and into a whole new world! We were taken to recovery
where I changed into my gown and got hooked up to
my IV and blood pressure cuff.
Shortly after the anesthesiologist came in to go
over a few things and off we went into the retrieval room!
It was a little creepy at first, a dim lit room with lots
of silver shinny stuff and a gyno bed with huge
black holsters for your thighs!
two nurses talked to me while
the anesthesiologist got me all hooked up
a few minutes later the dr came in
and asked one of the nurses to come with him,
I waited for what seemed like an hour
with my legs strapped to the bed and
the annoying oxygen tubes in my nose.
When they finally came back she reassured me
that the hold up had nothing to do with me
and that we would get started soon!!
The embryologist rolled in the giant machine
and verified that my dishes matched my name and number.
once everything was verified the
anesthesiologist said it was time for the sleepy drugs,
a little nose tingle and then I remember nothing.
I woke up what seemed like 5 minutes later in the recovery room.
I just felt sore, and groggy.
I didn't even say anything crazy!
The girl that came out before I went back was
talking about buffalo chicken dip and make up???
I think that scared me into silence!
Dr. G came in about 10 minutes later to
let me know he retrieved 8 eggs and that
my breathing started to diminish and the
anesthesiologist made them stop where they were
to wake me up. He never got to the left ovary.
I'm okay with that though I would rather be
breathing than have a few more eggs!
We were the last surgery of the day
and had the whole recovery room to our selves
we were waiting for the embryologist
to let us know that the ICSI had been completed
and that we could leave, In the mean time
our nurse came back and told us Dr. G's
wife and one of my favorite nurses wanted to serve us lunch!
They had Honey Baked Ham delivered
and brought us back sandwiches, potato salad, fruit and cookies!
Once we got the all clear I headed with my mom
to my parents house and Scott headed into work
I took a much need long nap and
lounged around for most of the day!
My pain is pretty much gone at this point
and I'm just anxious to hear tomorrows report!!!
Here are so more pics from today!!
Here are a couple photos from my egg shoot with my mom
how weird is it that she just so happened to
hard boil 8 eggs yesterday!!! WEIRD!!
|hahah just a little photo shoot humor :)|
If your into drinking games, take a shot every time
I said anesthesiologist :)
