    I finally get to go for my ER!! We are going over today (we live almost 3 hours from where my RE's IVF lab is) and staying overnight and doing the ER in the morning!!!! I'm a little nervous, I know I'll be out for it but that's what makes me nervous. I've never been under any kind of anesthesia. I hope I don't say anything stupid. They will be using the same medicine that the dr's gave my Mom when they had to reset her broken ankle. She was really funny and said some pretty goofy stuff. I'm sure I wouldn't be the first, but it would still be embarassing. OK, I think I'm done rambling.

    Oh yeah, I forgot to ask when I talked to the nurse. Is DH allowed to be present during the retrieval? I know he will have to go give a sample after they are done but I wondered if he would be able to be there before I was put out.

    Yeah we're doing IVF. After the ER on Friday they will call me Saturday and tell me how many fertilized and what day we come back for the transfer. I do know it will be either Monday or Wednesday.
