It's happening...

I can't believe that I'm actually getting to tell you all this, but on Tuesday morning at 7:45, I will be lying on a hospital bed, getting an IV & then getting the eggs sucked out of me at our egg retrieval. There aren't many follicles in there, but the doctor was pleased at how my estradial levels were rising (indicating that the eggs are still growing in there and not dying off) & she thinks this is about as good as we're going to get. Circumstances are still not optimal, but if we can get 3-5 eggs out of there and fertilized, I will be happy. Transfer should be on Friday, but in the best-case scenario, it will be on Sunday. The doctor doesn't think that any protocol is going to get more eggs to form in there, so we're putting all of our eggs in one basket (pun intended) and praying like there's no tomorrow. Thank you so much for all of your thoughts, prayers, kind words & comments of encouragement! They do mean so much to us!
