"As for me, I'll take one baby marinated in a dish please"

Extraction complete




In my "Gennet tour" post, I had a picture of a bright yellow chair with microscope eyes attached to it.  I thought I would be in that yellow chair this morning for my extraction.  Nope.  I had a chair that was much more daunting.  Imagine getting into the yellow chair from previous post, but having this baby shining on you.  And by you, I mean certain parts of you.




What it looked like

















What it felt like from the stirrups



Thank goodness they knocked me out cold after a couple minutes of looking at nothing but that light and various nurses and Dr. Denak walking around.


But 13 eggs and some tea and cookies later, I felt like a million bucks. Well, if you exclude the whole hurting uterus and coming out of general anesthesia part.  Although, it is amazing the positive effect tea and cookies can have.




Ben also did his duty, which the embryologist said was "sufficient."  Ha!  That Ben.  So we wait until tomorrow to find out how many embryos 14 eggs and sufficient sperm can create.  Go team Hummel!
