Important dates

We're down to the last few days here. It's hard for me to believe that this is it. After trying for so long and lots of dr's appointments it all boils down to the next week. I go in tomorrow for the egg retrieval. Today is the 1st day I get a break from meds. Then tomorrow it all starts up again. No more shots thank goodness, but there are still a lot of meds and 2 or 3 of them I have to continue for anywhere up to 12 weeks! With how important the shots were (and i managed to do that all like i was supposed to!) this is going to be more important because they support my early pregnancy horomones to keep the baby attatched like it should be until the placenta is developed enough to take over.
We will be able to know right away tomorrow how many eggs they were able to get, but I wont know until Thursday how many of them fertilized ok. Then on Monday they will do the implantation, we will be implanting 2 and after that we will wait about 2 weeks and I will go in for a blood pregnancy test.
We would love it if you all could be praying especially in the next week to 2 weeks for this. Pray that our embryos develop well and that there is no issues with the implantation so God will give us at least one, if not 2 healthy babies!

  3. I will think good thoughts for you! Is one of those hormones you are taking progesterone? I am actually rubbing progesterone cream on my belly every day until like 13 weeks when the placenta takes over. Good Luck!!!! Our parents could be Grandparents twice over next year

  4. Psalm 139:13-16
    You made all the delicate, inner parts of my body and knit me together in my mother's womb.
    Thank you for making me so wonderfully complex. Your workmanship is marvelous - how well I know it.
    You watched me as I was being formed in utter seclusion, as I was woven together in the dark of the womb.
    You saw me before I was born.
    Every day of my life was recorded in your book. Every moment was laid out before a single day had passed.

    I have every confidence in God's workmanship, that He will bless you and Joel with a wonderful precious baby (or two). And bless us with a grandbaby(ies) :)
