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.
