My retrieval went well and I felt surprisingly good yesterday considering some of them have not been too pretty afterwards. DH was nervous as one time (at my old clinic) I think my 2nd or 3rd cycle, I passed out in the elevator on the way out. The nurse was with me and took me back up, my HR was REALLY low, so I ended up with blood work to check for internal bleeding. I couldnt leave. Every time I stood up, my bp and hr dropped so much. DH had to go to work and called a friend to pick up me. I was there an extra 4 hours! Actually it was the day Obama was sworn in, so much have been January 2008...as I remember the nurses talking about it. ah good times, good times! So now i just sit and wait and hope that those eggies get along with the spemies and create some good embryos!
