I have one ovary with 16 lovely follicles, a happy uterus, and the hope of having a baby, or 2, or more. RIP to my right ovary and fallopian tubes who fell prey to a gnarly dermoid cyst and some other bumpy minions on our last leap year.
My hubbins and I are headed to Vegas to get "knocked-up" Dec. 3-13. We've opted to do micro-ivf at the Sher Institute. We are so excited about this baby making vacation. I have to admit I'm pretty nervous about the medications I'll be starting next Wednesday 11/14/12. I wonder if I will act crazy? I'm on the pill now and I've started craving fatty, sugary food, I'm pretty moody and get a headache everyday around 11:00am (that could be the new lighting at work though).
I'm also nervous about the egg retrieval. I'd really like to do it with just the Valium instead of being put out for it. Have any of you done the egg retrieval without anesthesia? I have a decent pain tolerance when I remember to breath.
We are keeping this little adventure a secret from the majority of people in our face to face lives. A secret so that we can surround ourselves with positive supporters only as well as be able to grieve privately if it doesn't work out the way we want it to.
Anyway, I've learned a lot from reading some of you posts. Thanks for all of your sharing :)
