The Big Day is coming!

Last week I had another appointment for an ultrasound and bloodwork. The ultrasound was fine and the bloodwork came back showing all my hormone levels were normal. This is all good news!! Based on that, and hoping that everything stays normal, we are on track to have our transfer on MARCH 5th! This date wasn’t set, but the nurse said it would be around March 5th. It’s far enough away to make the days go by excruciatingly slow, but close enough that I’m not going crazy! There are a few birthdays coming up so those will be great distractions during this wait.
Kyle and I are so excited and cannot wait! We are so grateful and still blown away at the fact that we are going through this process. I can’t say it enough how thankful we are to everyone who has supported us throughout this journey!


The retrieval was a success!

On Friday January 31, 2014 Dr. Witz was able to successfully retrieve 12 follicles! The nurses called me the next day to let me know that 8 of those follicles were fertilized! This is all great news and we couldn’t be happier. I didn’t know what to expect after the procedure…I assumed that I was tough and wouldn’t feel crabby. I was wrong. On a scale from 1 to I’m dying, I was about a 4. I was able to walk around and move…it was just slow. Saturday I was feeling a lot better! I got myself ready for Dana and Adam’s wedding and was feeling alright. Let me just say Dana was the most beautiful bride I’ve ever seen! Saturday night was a different story. I felt terrible!! Today (Sunday) I feel like I’m back at day 1. I’ve barely moved all day and have felt so lazy! I was advised not to workout for awhile…and with the way I’m feeling I’m okay with that. The nurses told me to call the office on Friday to see how many embryos made it to the freeze. After that we just wait until Aunt Flow shows herself. When she does I’ll call the office to let them know and then we will schedule the transfer!!
