I am really trying to tell myself not to worry about the retrieval... that it will be over quickly and that I will be loopy from the drug cocktail. I am however nervous about the call from the clinic or what they like to call the fertilization report. You see my eggs and my Husband's sperm have never met. What if they do not get along... what if they do not like each other? God I hope it is love at first sight and that they mesh effortlessly.
I cannot believe how real this is all beginning to feel. I thought about calculating the number of injections that I have received over the past two months but then I thought that that would likely just freak me out so what is the point. I suppose the point here is that we did it. We got to this point. Yes there were highs and lows, meltdowns and hormonal hysteria but we made it.
So here I am, a walking, talking and feeling human egg incubator. Thank you all for your positive thoughts and caring comments so far!! Wish me luck!
....... Oh and did I mention that I will be eating pancakes for dinner? I am not allowed to eat or drink past midnight tonight so I figured I mind as well just eat breakfast tonight... it is my favourite meal!
