Living with Infertility

Wanting, hoping waiting,
Loving, longing, knowing,
Feeling the loss before I could lose you.
Never seeing, touching or smelling.
Dreaming, aching, crying.
Losing the hope and joy,
Of Motherhood.

How did it go?

The egg retrieval went amazing. We were able to get 9 eggs this time, so hopefully we will be able to freeze a few for a frozen transfer (that is how we got Hannah). A fresh cycle, when the embryos have not been frozen, tends to give a higher % of success. We plan on putting in 2 embryos and will be doing so Sunday or Tuesday. U of U waits for day 3 or day 5 after the egg retrieval, they want those embryos to be optimal. We are very excited and putting our faith in God. It is up to Him now to help the doctors and my body with this process. We have done everything we know how and feel we can hand it over to Him.

After the transfer we will have to wait 2 weeks to know whether or not we are pregnant. It usually feels like the longest week of my life...but I have made it through 4 of them, so I can wait one more time.

Oh, I did start my progesterone shot yesterday and Flavio did a great job sticking it in. This shot is an IM or inter-muscular shot. So the needle is long...annoyingly long. If I get pregnant I will take it for 10 weeks total. If I don't get pregnant then we stop, of course.

So here is praying that I get to keep taking it!




  1. I have really enjoyed reading this blog.. I wish you all the best and anxiously await the outcome.

  2. 9 eggs is great news! Glad things are going well, and I continue sending prayers and good thoughts your way! Love you!

  3. I'm so happy to hear that everything is going well and as planned! We'll see you this weekend!!
