A Quick Egg Retrieval Update

We arrived at CCRM this afternoon at 12:30 p.m.  I was prepped, my IV was inserted (by far the worst part in all of this!) and we waited to get the show on the road for my retrieval at 1:30 p.m.
The procedure went well and I waited, not so patiently, for the doctor to come over to give us our egg count...
...which was ten.  Ten eggs.  10!  Me... Ten eggs. The thirty-one year old girl whose eggs are supposedly the age of someone who is in their mid-forties.  I'm still in shock.  And I know that the number of eggs is just that - just a number.  Anything can happen between now and tomorrow when we get the fertilization report.  We are trying to be positive and are hoping for much better results than last time.  We are praying that our luck will finally start to change. For now we are grateful, thankful and are relishing in this small miracle that we were given today.
