Retrieval Tomorrow

Last night we triggered. Retrieval tomorrow at 9 a.m. When the nurse called me, she rattled off all of our instructions and told me that my 3 day transfer would be Wednesday, and my pregnancy test would be June 13th. I almost started crying. I'm overwhelmed by the fact that tomorrow afternoon I'll be technically pregnant. That my babies will be created. That there is an actual chance I might become a mother. Overwhelming.

My husband said to me, "Do you know that the actual date of conception would be your birthday?" Ummm. Yeah. I do. He admits he's a little slow. We were able to cancel our birthday plans and get our money back, so that's good.

I'm trying to be hopefuly without gettin my hopes up.


  1. I'm so excited for you!! These might not be FUN birthday plans, they'll be worth it. Enjoy your next few days resting and make sure hubby gives you extra pampering! Yay!

  2. Good luck with that. Take it easy and have snacks and movies ready for after the retrieval.

  3. Best of luck! You'll be in my thoughts. I agree with the others, rest up with some movies or a good book. Hurray!!
