A dozen eggs, please!

The retrieval was today, and they got a dozen eggs.  The doctor said that it went "perfect" and that 12 is just what they were hoping for.  I'm please about that number too, because it will give us a lot to work with.  If some don't fertilize or aren't good quality, hopefully we'll have a few that are and some left to freeze.  I'm hoping for a 4 or 5-day transfer.  They have a very nice setup in their IVF center.  I hadn't been there before, as it's separate from the rest of the clinic.  They even gave me a nice fleece blanket with their logo on it.  They will ICSI half of them and allow the other half to fertilize naturally.  Bunny's sample was very good.  I'm feeling crampy and tired, so taking it very easy for the next 2 days.  I'll check back tomorrow once I hear the fert report.
