...they'll be day-after-Easter eggs!
I have over a dozen, with 8 in the 15 - 20mm range. I'm lookin' for a belly wheelbarrow.
Last stims tonight, HCG tomorrow evening, retrieval on Monday. I pressed the nurse to make sure I wasn't being postponed just due to the holiday, and her response was very reassuring. Turns out other gals are doing retrievals on Sunday, so the holiday isn't an issue. My perfect timing just happens to be Monday.
Thanks for all the love, dust and well-wishes, my friends.
I've been super-conscientious about being gentle and loving to me this time: lots of acupuncture, massage, good therapy, evenings in the recliner, few/no meetings scheduled at work.
And last but not least, I've been listening to Anne Lemott's latest "Grace (Eventually)" on CD. I highly recommend it. If you're (very) left-leaning, open to faith and appreciate dry humor, you'll love it.
I'm kinda rambling on here, but one more thing... Last night over dinner dh and I actually talked a bit about 'what if this really happens?'. He asked, what do these last 4.5 years mean, if/when we actually get pregnant? There has been so much heartache, disappointment, anger, stress, frustration. Does it just go away? I told him that I think it has shaped us, individually and as a couple. It is a part of our life experience, that we will carry forward. Hard lessons learned, that maybe will help us with challenges later in life. Those aren't really answers, just thoughts. What happens to infertility after pregnancy? I don't know. But I sure would like to find out.
