Episode 10: Our IVF Egg Retrieval

In this episode Hunter and I talk about our IVF egg retrieval and what it was like to go through the stimulation phase of the our IVF cycle. Over the last 12 days I’ve given myself a total of 56 injections, went to six acupuncture sessions, and had four blood draws, so I’ve felt a little like a voo doo doll. I’m so grateful to say that everything went really smoothly for us and I felt good, physically and emotionally, through the entire process. Listen in to hear how many eggs we had retrieved and what’s next for us.
