(Hold on for a sec, I gotta go get injected)... :)
(Wait, false alarm. Corey's not home yet from Sportsman's Warehouse. We're suppose to do injections right now. I'll give him another 10 minutes, then I guess I'll inject myself. : o I guess I'll type more while I wait.)
We decided that Corey should work on Monday instead of taking me to the egg retrieval because it's a fairly new job and it's a busy week for him. We didn't want him to ask for the time off. We'll save that for the transfer day.
All my family lives in a different state. I wanted my mom to come but she's working. No Biggie. So... I asked my BROTHER. I called him and asked if he would take my drugged up self home from the dr's office and wait on me all day. He said "YES!". So he's coming to town this weekend and I'm really excited for him to help me.
(This is me and my brother before a My Chemical Romance concert)
After work today I decided to take my "walk" at the mall :) I picked up some CUTE new shoes and some fun new makeup. :) Then Corey met me there for dinner at Grimaldi's.
At dinner we sort of decided (if the dr's ok with it) to transfer TWO embryo's instead of one. We're ok with twins. We had always assumed we'd end up with twinners if we did IVF, but very early on the dr was clear that he recommended only transferring one embryo because of our unexplained infertility... or fertility "health". He was pretty confident that IVF would work for me even if I only transferred one. He said it wasn't worth the risk and complications that come along with twin pregnancies and births. Ultimately we'll follow his orders, but if he gives us the OK, we'll transfer two. Oh, AND I've been having dreams that I have TWINS. It's always a boy and a girl :) Beautiful and healthy.
(ok, ok, so Corey forgot about injections. I called him at about 9:10 and he was still at Sportsman's Warehouse (did I mention he's obsessed with guns?). Anyway... thank goodness we don't live far from there. I started preparing and mixing the meds and he ran in and did them. I don't know why, but half way through, I had a little emotional "situation". I started crying. Not because of the pain (and tonight hurt more than any night so far - one injection site started bruising up right away), but just because I'm even here doing this. Yeah, it's sad. And it's hard. But it will be worth it. After injections Corey hugged me and offered to let me stab him with a needle if it would make me feel better. :) Just the offer made me feel better.) :)
I'm so grateful for having this opportunity and I'm happy to be a part of this process. Good night. :) (yeah, lots of smiley faces tonight) :)
