Just call me insane.

Albert Einstein once said “The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results”. I guess that means I must be insane because by this time on Wednesday I will have done my 5th IVF egg retrieval. I remember when I was still an IVF newbie and would hear about people that had done 4, 5, 6 IVFs. I would think to myself, "are they insane?????" Yet here I am, in that exact boat.

In my heart I know that we are meant to be parents again and that Chase is meant to be a big brother. I have prayed for this so many times and I know that God intends to answer my prayer. I just hope it is with this IVF that it happens. I will trigger tonight at 9:30 and am scheduled for my ER at 9:00 a.m. on Wednesday. We are going to stay at my mom's tomorrow night since she lives literally 10 minutes away from the surgery center and can watch Chase during the retrieval w/o us having to get him up before the crack of dawn. If you are a prayer, a positive well-wisher, a baby duster, or whatever then it's time to send it our way!

Three cheers for being insane! ;o)




**I am grateful for
1) we've made it to retrieval
2) my lining is nice and thick
3) prayers, prayers and more prayers!
4) stims are over!
5) being insane enough or stubborn enough to keep pushing forward (not sure which it really is!)

I will say some prayers for you! I am also triggering tonight, but at 11. I hope I can stay up that long.

Good Luck and God's blessings.

According to this, it doesn't matter how many times you try, you still have a pretty good chance. Praying for you.

Okay lady its time to think positive thoughts. This is meant to be. Sprinkle your pillow with baby powder and think baby thoughts. Chase is going to be a great big brother and you are doing the best thing for you and your family. No stress from here on.... just get ready for baby. My prayers are with you. If you need someone to talk with or just for moral support, you have my number! Its your lucky day: word verification today is babes!
