finally triggered.


Nothing left to do now but pray. We did a double trigger last night at 1AM (Pregnyl) and 2AM (Leuprolide). Our egg retrieval is scheduled for noon tomorrow. 

This trip has been like Groundhog Day. 
Wake up at 6:45AM.
Shots at 7AM.
Drive 45 mins to clinic for ultrasound and blood work. 
Drive 45 mins back. 
Keep busy during the day.
Shots at 7PM.
Meditate and try to sleep.
Repeat.

Here's the latest growth reports on my follies.

In the middle of the night, I remembered a quote that I heard at a business event. Totally unrelated to infertility but so very relevant...
"Faith and fear have the same elements. They both require you to believe something that hasn't happened yet."
I can only control my own thoughts and what I choose to believe. 
I have faith in these little eggs (soon to be embryos) I'm growing.

I love that quote!! For someone who struggles with fear and doubt and worry (I'm pointing to myself) I love that fear and faith are both about things that haven't happened! So praying for you!!

Amanda G said...

I just want to say thank you so very much for your blog, I have recently come across it and am thankful for you! I am 30 and have stage 4 endo and will be having my third lap surgery to remove a very large ovarian cyst. Immediately following surgery my MD wants to go right into IVF. I have been lost and overwhelmed with every step of this process to get pregnant and your blog brings a little clarity and relief. All of my friends are on their first, second and even third pregnancies, not one of them can understand what I'm going through, thank you for sharing your story. Happy thoughts for you and your soon to be embryos !!!

Emily said...
