First, I want to say Happy Veterans Day to all who have given service to our country. Your sacrifice makes our country great.
In a small part of the country, we also celebrated Ooctye Aspiration Day! The process went off without a hitch.
I love Ooctye Aspiration Day. I get pampered. I feel proactive. I get to go nu-night with the help of a strapping anesthesiologist. This is the part I love the most. IVF is a process that is all about WAITING. The anxiety and constant pressure of the second hand ticking its way into our subconcious'. But in this moment, a handsome man leans over me and tells me, "You will start to feel Slee.....".
AND then BAM I'm awake again covered in warm blankets. No waiting at all.
After I woke up I had a running mantra in my head. "At least 5, at least 5, at least 5".
And then my lovely nurse peaked around the corner, gives me a huge smile and in a theatrical whisper said "SEVENTEEN".
