I am 35 years old, living with stage IV Endometriosis, possibly adenomyosis and struggled with infertility for almost 4 years. I also struggled with PPD and now struggle with PMDD. I am a mother to a son that was born at 18 weeks and too precious for this earth; and now a mother to a son born in August 2011. By journaling here, I hope to benefit both for myself and for others that are dealing with this disease and fertility struggles. Thanks for visiting!

Houston, we have lift off!!!

I just got done injecting my 2 ovidrel shots. So, here we go! My ER (egg retrieval) will be Weds at 8 AM. EARLY day. I'm nervous and ready to have it done. From my bloodwork, everything looks good. I don't have really high numbers with my follicle count, but, I'm going quality over quantity. Chant it with me! I don't necessarily like the idea of having that many eggs sitting around in a freezer anyway, so, it's just meant to be. Just hoping that I get at least 2 good ones ready to go for this cycle! :)

I'm not sure if they are planning to drain my cyst/endometrioma while in there. I assume she will as she did last time. I'll find out Weds. Just rolling with the punches!

So, it'll probably be a 3 day transfer with the low count, just like last time. So, that'll be Sat. With an ER on Weds, my BETA will be WEds, August 12th. IF there are good eggs, which will turn into good embryo's.

Eeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!

Quality over quantity - a good mantra to keep repeating. I'll be thinking of you on Wed. with the retrieval, and thereafter.
