breakfast for dinner with a side of nerves


Tomorrow is the big day.  I think I am doing pretty well.  Oddly enough the trigger shot was virtually painless... I hardly even felt it.  The dosinex on the other hand made me quite dizzy and nauseaus...but it is all for the greater good so I will take it!

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!

  3. Woohoo, I am so excited for you!!!! I just know that his sperm will be smitten by your eggs and they will make lots of beautiful embies....and hopefully a ton for freezing. It is nice to have you one step ahead of me so you can give me the low down on everything. Good luck tomorrow and I will be thinking about you!

  4. I love breakfast, too! I hope you have a bunch of mature, happy eggs and that they successfully match up with the right swimmers and make lots of good looking, chromosomally sound embryos, at least one of which decides to stick around to grow and thrive in you and then come in to this world a happy, healthy, live baby!
