Lucky number 7?

I had the egg retrieval this morning. They put an IV in me and gave me saline and antibiotics. When they took me into the room where they do the procedure they gave me something to make me sleepy. What they give you is the same thing they give when you get your wisdom teeth out. Its sometimes called "twilight". So they nurse and doctor were there. "are you feeling sleepy?" Nope. Now? Nope. The nurse then says "ok I got to get to work". Then boom I was out and then I woke up in the recovery room. I felt a little crampy but it was tolerable.
They got 7 eggs. I was a little disappointed because I thought they usually get 15 to 20. I guessit quality of the eggs and not quantity. The doctor said no that is perfect. She said I thought I was only going to get 5 with my estrogen level. They gave me some Tylenol and I came home. I went right to sleep for few hours.
We now have to wait. I call tomorrow and see how many fertilized and when to come back in for the transfer. It will either be Sunday or Monday.
They now have me on estrace and progesterone. Estrace is a pill I will take morning and night and progesterone is a shot in the butt. Again, in the muscle.
I am just laying low today. I still feel a little crampy but feel fine.

Well, 7 does have a reputation of being a powerful number! Hope your embryo reports are great, GL =)
