Well, yesterday i went in for my egg pickup..   My husband firstly had to produce his sample and we were led into a room with a tv in it.  The nurse locked the door behind us and then hubby told me to get out.. Ha ha ha....  After that i went to the day procedure and was admitted.  I got changed, was weighed,  my blood pressure was checked, then the doctor saw me, then the anatheisiest saw me and then the nurse told me to take off my glasses and led me to theatre.  i said i would not see, she said "just follow the blue blurb" meaning her..  ha ha ha ha..  I entered the room and remember seeing through my blind eyes about 10 doctors/nurses.   I laid down and the anatheisiest came over and started her procedure.  I said that she better let me know when shes going to make me sleep and that i better wake up.  She said she would guarantee I would wake and i would sleep any minute.  well thats all i remember........I woke up maybe half an hour later and the doctor told me she retrieved 12 eggs.   Wow.   My last attempt 4 years ago i only got 6 out and only 2 fertilised back then.    I was still drowsy and asked if that was good, she said yes.   Then i stupidly said "Can i go home now"  She said "No", i had to recover.   ha haha.    I woke up properly about 30 min later and was given food and then i got changed and waited for my parents to pick me up..  In the mean time a nurse told me that i would get a phone call tomorrow on how many survived.  I felt so yuk going home maybe cos of the way my dad was driving....  I went back to mum and dads and stayed there untill midnight for hubby to collect me.  I was spoilt there, mum cooked so much food for me, i had a great sleep and my little niece and nephew came over to cheer me up..    Felt so good.  The staff at my ivf clinic and the day procedure were absolutely fantastic.  They treated me so well....
