Vegas Baby, YEAH

We arrived at midnight on a Friday night.  My brother and his daughter picked us up and they were just as excited as we were!  The next morning I had an ultrasound and blood work to determine how far along my follicles were developed.  We enjoyed the weekend with my brother and family eating amazing food and hanging out with them. The next week, we went back to the drs about every other day for an ultrasound and more blood work.  They determined that my egg retrieval would not be until the following Monday.  It was projected at first to be on Friday, and this is why we only bought one way tickets, because we didn't know exactly when we'd be flying back.

On the days when I didn't have any appointments, Rodney and I used our phone's GPS to explore the big city.  We often wondered how people did this before GPS.  They got very frustrated, thats how, and the probably didn't get to see everything they planned on seeing.   We walked the strip and in and out of various casinos, ate some seriously strange yet amazing food, walked Lola, played the Xbox Kinect, and just enjoyed each other.  Oh, and went through the nightly injections that we were becoming pros at.  I was injection two a night until the end and then it was three.  At the end of that week, I was starting to feel super sore in my lower ab area, like I had done 8-minute-abs four times a day. Its because those eggs were getting bigger.  Then on Saturday before the retrieval, I took my trigger shot and was ready for Monday's retrieval.

I was very nervous.  Nervous of being put under.  I hadn't been since I had my wisdom teeth out at 19, and I couldn't really remember what it was like.  But thats just it.  You have no memory.  When I woke up, I was still, obviously, groggy and they wheeled me back into the room where Rodney was waiting for me and this was the dialogue:

Me to nurse:  "Can you get me my glasses?"
<nurse goes and finds my glasses and hands them to me>

1 minute later-

Me to Rodney:  "That was sure nice of them to put my glasses on me"
Rodney: "They didn't.  You just asked her to go get them"

Me: "I didn't dream"
Rodney smiled.

Me: "They had me in crazy stirrups"
Rodney smiled.

1 minute later-

Me: "I didn't dream"
Rodney: "You just said that"

Me: "They had me is these crazy stirrups"
Rodney: "You just said that too"
