December 2012


Hello my lovelies!  My egg retrieval was a great success; no major hiccups or anything.  I’m currently in between painkillers right now, so rather uncomfortable, but I wanted to be coherent enough to reveal the winner.

They managed to capture 31 eggs!  That’s considerably below my normal output, but still quite above the standard average.  It brings my total donated egg count to 266.  That’s a lot of potential babies.

Bill R. is the winner! As well as a lovely director, actor, and good friend.

(Aggh, Paul, you were so close.)

Bill, hit me up whenever you can to see about getting your prize and going out for drinks.  It’s been far too long since we’ve seen each other!

To the rest of you, thank you for playing, reading, encouraging, supporting, and dryly joking along with me through this whole process.

I’m gonna go back to a nice narcotic nap.

Happy Egg Harvest Day!

At my appointment this morning, the doctor officially scheduled my retrieval for the 3rd at 8am.  I’ll be taking my trigger shot tonight at 9:30pm, then reporting for duty at 7am Monday morning.  The harvest moon rises in less than 48 hours, and you know what that means….

Come one, come all!  It’s….

"Ms. Too Many Eggs"

“Ms. Too Many Eggs”

Switching it up with the naming scheme this year.  Once again, it’s time to place your bets for the number of eggs I will produce.

Our winner last year was the venerable Joe K.  Joe’s awesome hand-knit prize is unfortunately still residing with me, as he is currently sequestered away in Japan teaching/scaring small children.  (Love you and miss you, Joe.)

I”m sure most of you know how the game is played, but here’s a recap.  A list? Let’s!

–The lucky winner who guesses the correct number will receive a mystery prize from yours truly.  I can’t go into too many specifics about the prize, but it definitely will not suck. If you’re in my neighborhood, I’ll take you out for drinks on top of it all.
–Price is Right rules apply.
— Betting pool opens at the time of publication of this blog post and closes at 8am on Monday the 3rd.
— Bids accepted through text msg, email, facebook, twitter, carrier pigeon, candy gram, or any other communication method of your choice

Here’s some insider information to help you out:

–Eggs produced per cycle: #1: 18 eggs; #2: 17 eggs; #3: 49 eggs, #4: 53 eggs, #5 43 eggs, #6: 55 eggs
— Mean average per cycle: 39
— Ultrasounds show about 10-15 mature follicles per side
— It’s been over a year since my last cycle.  I don’t know if that means my reproductive organs have been lying fallow and will now be more fruitful than ever, or if it means that they’ve been out of training for a year and will subsequently fail all the tests required to become a OO agent.

You’ve got the rules, the clues, the knowledge, and the power!
