Now we wait!!

Right now life seems a little surreal and a little crazy all at the same time, Haha. 

On Monday, May 8th I went in for an egg retrieval, we collected 18!!
The next morning I got the call that 15 fertilized normally.

On day 3 we still had 15 fertilized and no fragmentation.
On day 5 we had two beautiful grade 5AA eggs put back - Eeeek!!
The next morning we learned that we had 13 embryos make it to the freezer

*Happy Dance*

Wow. . .

I'm beyond excited and nervous and scared and overjoyed and. . . so many things. 
I'm schedled for my BETA on May 22nd :) 

Josh and I celebrate our 10 year wedding anniversary on the 24th!! 

Work has been more stressful in the last 3 weeks than it has in two freaking years *sigh* I'm trying to remain as positive as I can and trying not to let the stress consume me. It will all smooth out soon enough, but I just hate that things are so darn crazy at this time. These are the times in life I wish I was a millionaire and didn't have to work, lol. But any-who. . . I'm crossing everything, praying to any and all gods and hoping with all my heart that this works for us.

IVF egg retrieval - Tomorrow Morning - Eeek!!

Ladies and Gents. . . 

I’ve been a bit quite on the Blogger front, but I did want to let everyone know that I officially go in tomorrow morning at 6:15am for my IVF egg retrieval – Ahhhhhhhhhhhh!!!! 

*Happy Dance* 

I am beyond excited and nervous all at the same time, lol. I feel peaceful about the situation and I'm remaining as positive as I can. I’m sorry to all of my blogger friends for not really sharing much of the process with you all, but I’ve been cheating on Blogger with Youtube. I started making Vlogs, basically video blogs, and since then I haven’t felt very compelled to write out as many things anymore. On the bottom of this post I will include some video links to videos I’ve done over that past couple weeks and months, so that if anyone wants to catch up or see what’s been going on in my world then you certainly can!!

I don’t have much else to say other than - I seriously can’t believe we’re doing Egg Retrieval tomorrow. I feel so amazed that the process has so far. . . gone very smoothly. I feel like the time has flown by faster than I could ever have imagined. I did took my trigger shot last night and went back in to the fertility office this morning for a blood test to make sure the HCG is being absorbed by my body. . . Eeeeeeek!!! 

After the egg retrieval tomorrow I will be off for 3 days so I’m going to take it easy and veg out on my couch to let my body heal. Hopefully the Embryo transfer will be on Monday the 13th, but we’ll know for certain a day or two after the retrieval, if anything it would wind up on Sunday and that's Mothers day *sigh*.

So that’s it folks. . . We’re really, really doing this!! 
I will try and update after the retrieval to let you all know how I’m doing. 
Take care everyone!!
