Photos From The Retrieval

I'm still pretty out of it and tired from the drugs this morning. And probably because of that, I'm throwing my vanity to the wind and have decided to post a couple of photos that I had D take at this morning's retrieval. Let's call them before and after photos. Obviously I'm not looking my best here.

Top is before, bottom is after.


Everything went so well, and to say I'm grateful is truly an understatement. The procedure was fairly painful at times and I'm moving pretty slowly now as I recover. But if this gets us a baby, I'd go through all of it a million times over.

I'm so pleased, 16 eggs is nothing short of fantastic. I feel so blessed already. I keep thinking about our embryo children and wondering how they are doing. I hope they know their mummy and daddy love them so much already.

Hilary, I think you look lovely in both the before and the after shots. :) You did an amazing and courageous thing today and, although it was painful, it will all be worth it when you hold your baby(ies?!?!) in your arms. Keep us posted-all my fingers and toes are crossed for you!

YAY! I'm so glad the retrieval went well! You really do look great and I hope all of this pays off when you get that BFP.

All my crossables are crossed for you! XOXO

Pardon my French, but, Holy Sh*t....
16 !

Again I can't stress enough how odd it feels to be this happy for a complete stranger.

You have my very best wishes, stay positive.
