we have eggs!!!


so sorry i've been bad about keeping y'all up to speed. i'm trying my best but i don't have a ton to update along the way because everything is going so smoothly. plus all the action is happening to k - not me. if you follow me on instagram (@dreamingofdimples), you probably already saw these follie updates that k sent me. but i wanted to add them here just in case you haven't so that you can see her progress.

after her day 10 stim appointment (photo above), k got the thumbs up to trigger. 
___________________________________________________________________
k went in for her egg retrieval at noon. forty-two minutes later, i got an email from her husband informing us that the doctor retrieved 33 eggs!
 
how awesome is k and her hubby for keeping in such great communication with me. they’ve never left us hanging or guessing for a minute. we're so grateful for that. it has helped to alleviate my stress in this cycle, which is why i’ve been uncharacteristically calm and relaxed.
 
can you believe it? 33!!! and then I got a call from the embryologist that 29 are mature.
OMG!

Oh my gosh! 33 eggs and 29 mature?! That is unbelievable. Having quantity issues I can't even wrap my head around that many "chances". I'm praying for great fertilization and lots of beautiful, healthy day 5 embryos! This is the start of your family!!!
