Egg retrieval is scheduled tomorrow morning and I am filled with glee. I am not gleeful about the process itself, certainly not at the stabbing of my ovaries through my uterus (that part I hate), but I am gleeful about what I expect will be the outcome. I think I will get at least 6 mature eggs– which is great for me!
This cycle certainly has been different from the last one. Everything has matured quickly and my E2 has continued to rise. Dr Gruff says that the rising E2 suggests good egg quality. Last cycle my E2 was rather low. So yay! I am hoping for good eggs, easy fertilization, embryos to freeze and 2 embryos to carry around in my uterus. All of this (of course) will be followed by a positive beta and a healthy 9 months!
If you are thinking that I am being overly optimistic, you are partially right. I have decided that I am putting the positives out there into the universe and waiting for my faith to be rewarded. I have not become a convert of “the secret” just yet but I cannot imagine that worrying will help, thus the positive energy.
Also I like the idea of saying good-bye to IVF… surely 3 is plenty?!
