Full Of Hope

The Next Family

IVF

Today I lay recovering from my retrieval.  I’m happy to report that I didn’t feel or remember a thing.  I woke up with my partner and my doctor by my side only to find out that they retrieved 4 eggs.  This was a bit of shock coming from having 11 follicles. Well 4 eggs, that’s good enough for me.  Now we have to see if they “take” and become embryos.  I wait and rest and am scheduled for a transfer in a couple days.  I’m praying for my little guys that sit in a cold room in a tiny Petri dish and hope that they all survive.  I can’t believe how patient one must be to go through this process.  I’ve taken up biting my nails but I’m full of hope, finally.
