As I came out of my retrieval haze this morning, the first word I heard L. say was, "15". I absolutely couldn't believe it and apparently retorted, "No, that can't be right. They must mean 1.5."

After this, I asked the nurse for a glass of Pinot Grigio.

They retrieved 15 eggs today. I don't know if my ovaries went into overdrive these last couple of days or what, but I am still shaking my head in disbelief at this number.

Fertilization report will be around 9 a.m. tomorrow. The lab met with us before we left and explained everything they'll be doing with our eggs and sperm today. This is an amazing process, and I am awe-struck by everything they're doing to help us.

We had a fantastic experience with the nursing staff as well - we were the only retrieval this morning so they were able to give us lots of attention, which was very reassuring.

This has been a thrilling day, and I'm trying to stay focused on my faith here. Everything will work out just as it is supposed to, and that's exactly what I'm praying for.

This is uncharted territory for me, however, and I find myself worrying about what's going on in that lab tonight.

This is such an amazing odyssey to share with L., and I feel so close to him right now. Last night when we arrived at our hotel, he gave me a letter he had written about how much he loved my strength through this process and an "IVF present" - a necklace I was admiring the other day.

God has blessed me with an amazing husband.

Thank you to everyone who has been praying for us and sending us so much support.

Looks like we're moving on to the next IVF Funhouse room tomorrow.

It's going to be a long night.

I hope you have some great fertilized eggs ready to be transfered in a few days!

Praying for your success!

We may have assigned the word "delivered" to the realm of the pizza boy, but when God tells us that he will deliver us it is a powerful promise. He will rescue and strengthen us. We have an advocate and defender like no other. Praise be to God !

Thinking good thoughts for the fert report.

Hope you're able to take it easy for the next couple of days (physically if not emotionally).

Woo-hoo! I'm going to have to go back and read your whole story, but this is great news no matter how much I already know...

I hope it continues to go well!

That's funny, that's exactly how many eggs they retrieved from me. I'm glad you and your husband are going through this so closely together. Try to not freak out too much!
