Thank you for all the well wishes. The ER went smoothly. The doc retrieved 20 eggs. Did ICSI with ten and all ten made it through the first night, and the other ten were left to do the magic on their own. Four of those fertilized and one split, so we have fifteen total today! I am hoping for another good report tomorrow.

I have severe bloating, pain, dizziness, and difficulty breathing. I am pretty sure I have OHSS to some degree, but the clinic is not open until Monday. I've just been resting since I got home yesterday, and that's what I am going to have to go do now. The dizziness has caught up to me once again. I don't want to faint again.

Until tomorrow.

Edited to add: I misunderstood. We have 16!!!

Wow - just ready through your fertility history. 16 is an awesome number (that was mine, too). Best wishes as you go through the transfer. I'll be following closely. My gestational carrier is only a day or two ahead of you.
