Six eggs ain’t that bad!

It’s about 12 hours since egg retrieval. I am cramping a little and feeling very bloated. Together, they are somewhat restricting my movements and I am not wanting to complain one bit. We got six eggs today and this was more than I was expecting. I am content and breathing a sigh of relief.

It interesting how things turn out. I do honestly believe that if our first two cycles weren’t cancelled and we got 6 eggs in the first IVF attempt, I’d be disappointed. Now, after two cancelled cycles, I am happy with any number so long as we are moving ahead!

Managing expectations is tricky…the small pleasures in life I tell you! 🙂
