Looking good

The cycle is looking good. There are 16 great looking follicles and then a lot of "smaller ones." Tomorrow is the retrieval. Am I nervous? Yes, I am. I wonder how many will be retrieved, how many will fertilize and how many will make it to day 3 and day 5. I wonder whether I will have a day 3 or day 5 transfer. There are just so many things to wonder about, it can make a girl go nuts. I'm honestly trying not to think about it and keeping my mind occupied with other things.

I read this "Note from the universe" today....
"It's true- the early bird gets the worm.
So does the late bird and the bird in-between. Because by design, there are
always more than enough worms.
In fact, the only bird that doesn't get a worm, is the bird that doesn't go
out to get one."

I need to remind myself that I am on the right track, that I can have my heart's desire- I just need to keep my eye on the prize, and keep going...

Please wish me luck!

Love the bird-worm theory - makes sense!

Good, good luck with retrieval - it seems like this cycle is going really well!

Hey there... just wanted to wish you boatloads of luck with this cycle. 16+ is a really good number of eggs - indicates good quality and not overstimming. I'm very wary of cycles that produce more than 25-30 eggs, personally.

Thanks for your kind comments on my blog. I hope to hear some good news from you soon!
