Tomorrow is the big day (well, big day #1)

I took my trigger shot last night at 11:00 and we are to be at the hospital at 9:30 on Thursday morning for a 10:30 retrieval. We'll find out Friday afternoon how many fertilized and how well they are doing. Please, please, please send prayers that all goes well. We are praying for good eggs, strong sperm, and an excellent fertilization report. The retrieval is my least favorite part (if you can have a *least* favorite) of IVF and I will be very glad once we are past this hurdle. I'm terrified I will ovulate on my own and I hate being under anesthesia where I have no clue what's going on. Also, Jeff is doing his thing during this time so he's not w/me and I hate that the most. Deep breaths, deep breaths.

I actually loved ER. I loved being put to sleep! Anyway, have no fear! IVF #3 was my most tortuous cycle. It was almost cancelled on trigger day because the doctor thought my numbers indicated I may ovulate before the retrieval but we moved ahead anyway. Then on retrieval day, I went in to the OR 1/2 hour late because they could not get my IV in. I thought for sure my eggs would be all gone but they were not and you know what happened next. Triplets!!! Good luck and know that all will be fine. :o)
