Quick update

I know I promised pictures, but everytime I try to upload them they never upload :( Hopefully, I can fix that soon!!

I have gone to the RE several times for ultrasounds and bloodwork. My right ovary seems to be producing tons of follicles and my left ovary is a bit slower. The doctor said this is normal. I have been having migraines and nausea. I am so thankful for all of my family that has stepped in and helped me out with Noah. I have said it before, it takes a village to raise a child! So true! I am so grateful for all of the help. I hate not feeling well and being stuck in bed with my head pounding so hard that I just want relief.

I go back to the RE in the morning for another bloodwork and ultrasound. They will let me know if I will come back on Tuesday morning again or if I will be ready for the egg retrieval. They guestimate Wednesday being the BIG day!!

I am so ready to be done with my shots!!! My stomach is bruised all over and my ovaries feel like grapefruits. I am bloated and just plain exhausted all of the time. Doing IVF is sooo hard and I had forgotten how tough it was! I am asking for lots of prayers! Prayers for God's plan to come through!! Prayers for my symptoms to go away and for the egg retrieval and transfer to go smoothly. And if it is God's will for us to be blessed with another child.

I will let y'all know the specific dates when I know them!  It is crazy b/c I could go Monday and they say we cannot go forward. You never know. At my Saturday appt. they thought they saw a big cyst on my left ovary, (it wasn't, just two large follicles side by side). If that would have been a cyst this cycle would have been over.

So prayers for all of this to keep going!!
