Yay! We have just ended 9 days of fertility injections. We have 6 follicles that are within the "mature" range. So tonight I get an ovidrel injection to produce ovulation. On Monday morning at 9:30am, I will have the egg retrieval procedure. This procedure is the most painful and intensive. They actually put me under sedation, which I'm grateful for, because it's pretty painful afterwards. I will know afterwards how many eggs they retrieved. I'm praying they retrieve all 6 so we have a higher chance of getting embryos to implant.
I'm excited and hopeful about the possibility of being pregnant. Am I still scared about the possibility of not being pregnant? Yes, but I figure disappointment never killed anyone. It's important for me to have hope and believe the best, because I know I can deal with anything God gives me (with His help). No matter what, Adam and I wouldn't change anything we've done. It's been worth the financial sacrifice to try IVF again, and at least we won't ever have to have any regrets.
