Yesterday I had my last pre-retrieval acupuncture appointment. I wish I could say I relaxed but in all honesty, my mind was racing. So much has taken place over the past 5 weeks and I haven’t had the time or energy to blog about most of it.
It’s 11pm right now and I should be sleeping because tomorrow’s a BIG day... Instead I’m wide awake and listening to Georgia snore like a bear. I’m excited. I’m nervous and I’m in disbelief that this phase of our IVF journey is actually here. You would think that giving up coffee, booze and lots of other favorite things would cause the days to drag but that couldn’t be further from the truth. They’ve flown by and have been filled with countless appointments, ultrasounds, blood tests and injections like crazy. 58 pokes to be exact.
This kid better be cute. That’s all I’m gonna say… ;)
In the ultrasound pictured below I had 14+ follicles that measured between 15 and 20. That was two days ago so I’m excited to see what’s grown since then!
If you’re the praying kind, please pray for us. Please think of us. Send us baby dust, well wish and positive vibes for tomorrow. We welcome it all.
Update coming soon...
