Just by the Numbers Please

18 Eggs
13 Mature
5 Fertilized Normally

I don't like those numbers. Something tells me that 5 doesn't bode well for transfer Friday.

Retrieval was ruff, my left ovary didn't want to give up the goods, so they had to manhandle it. I got sent home with the extra good drugs. :o) Oh yeah and 2 very sweet looking Sharpie bullseyes, one on each cheek!!

Turtle was sicker last night so this morning we got up very early to take her to the Peds. Cold trying to turn sinus infection, and ear infection. Poor baby has been just miserable.

So needless to say I am sorry it took me so long to get here to update you, but it has been a long 36 hours. I am really concentrating on getting the Turtle to feel better, and keep what little bit I have been able to eat down. Damn drugs.

Thanks to you all for checking up on me, it really means a lo to me!! So, here is to keeping Hope in my pocket until Friday.

Oh yeah.... Turtle walked yesterday... Heaven help the dogs now!!!

I am going to just try to hope that all 5 of them make it. (What? A girl can dream!)

Walking...watch out for the dogs and mommy's sanity!

Oh man they better find a good hiding spot cause she's gonna nail em (lol).
Sorry it was so uncomfortable for you and sorry the numbers were not what you had hoped for. But I read somewhere that it only takes one (*wink).
Fingers, toes, eyes - the whole nine yards crossed.

I hope those 5 are the best 5 ever. Thinking about you and hoping you feel better soon!
