Thanks giggle! The retrieval procedure itself wasn't so bad- I was sore for a few days after, but it wasn't as bad as I thought it would be. The hardest part was the few days before retrieval when my ovaries were HUGE from all those follicles growing. I was super bloated and had constant cramping and heaviness in my abdomen. Weirdly, it also hurts to pee both before and after retrieval.. feels like peeing glass! No idea why this is, but apparently it's very common. Within a week after retrieval I felt like myself and was ready to tackle the next one. I think the anticipation and not knowing was worse than what the process actually was. This time I know what to expect and am hoping for similar or better results (and maybe adding a few girls to the mix?!) since my doctor knows how I will respond meds better this time than last time.
