The retrieval on December 31st went well and they got 17 eggs. The next day the doctor called and said that 14 of the 17 were mature and of those, 7 fertilized. We are very happy with those results! So right now we are just waiting until Tuesday when two of the embryos will go back in.
On a related note, I have a totally awesome diet to follow. To prevent Ovarian Hyperstimulation Syndrome I have to follow a high sodium diet. Included in the recommended foods: McDonald's french fries, potato chips, anything with lots of salt - yumm!
