Here We Go...

Just a quick update, went for a follie check yesterday and nurse called in the afternoon confirming we were ready to trigger. Official trigger time was 9:00pm last night, meaning our retrieval is set for tomorrow at 9:00am!! I of course can't wait to get this part over with, but am super nervous because I've never been under before and don't really know what to expect. Yikes!!

And so far with this whole IVF process I feel very lucky for many reasons, the ER came pretty fast, while the shots sucked they were definitely bearable, and my follies are definitely cooperating. On the other hand I know a million things can go wrong, and we're hardly out of the woods yet. This is going to be a long week waiting to find out how many eggs fertilize, continue to develop, what the quality will be, will we be able to freeze any, etc! All things hubby keeps reminding me I can't control so let's just get through tomorrow, and take this one day at a time. Ahhh, if only it were that easy!!

Wish me luck girls, and thanks for all your support so far! You're the best!!!

You're either in ER right now, or just out of it. I am totally praying you got some great eggs and many of them. I also hope they do their thing well, and that you end up with some to freeze.

Fingers are crossed for you!

I look forward to these next couple days, I am sure your report will be awesome and you will have lots of little embabies! Thinking of you!
