IVF - Day 13 - Egg Retrieval!

In a half hour we will be leaving to go to the Fertility Clinic for my egg retrieval. Hopefully this will be my last date with Wandy. On Friday night at midnight (or is it Saturday morning?) I gave myself the HCG trigger shot. Last night I had the best sleep that I've had since this all began thanks to the Valium that they gave me to take.

I'm not allowed any food except for clear liquids (I hope that green tea counts as a clear liquid 'cause that's what I'm drinking), I'm not allowed to wear make up (I cheated and put on mascara), and I'm not allowed to drive for 24 hours (but I'm planning to drive myself to work tomorrow morning).

I hope that we get at least 10 eggs to work with. The embryologist will call us tomorrow with the fertilization report.
