only 6

The doctor was hoping for at least 8 eggs, but she was only able to get 6. So that's not great. We are only willing to do IVF once, so I'm hoping for 4 to fertilize so that we have a back-up in case the first transfer doesn't work.

I'm not too sore or anything, but they did find fluid in my abdomen (beginning of OHSS, I think), so they removed that and told me to drink Gatorade and eat salty food (yay for potato chips!). And my ovaries bled some, so I have to sleep at a 30 degree angle tonight to avoid the blood seeping up and irritating my diaphragm.

So not great news, but in hindsight, everything WAS going far too smoothly.
