PRACTICE MAKES PERFECT...RIGHT?



I WILL KEEP IT SHORT AND (BITTER)SWEET. OUR FIRST ATTEMPT AT MINI-IVF WAS NOT A SUCCESS. IT WAS A NEW EXPERIENCE. CLOMID AND A FEW (THAT TURNED INTO A FEW EXTRA) FOLLISTIM INJECTIONS. I FOUND THE RETRIEVAL PAINFUL, CONTRARY TO PUBLIC OPINION. AFTER ALL THAT, WE GOT 1 LONELY LIL EGG. IT DIDN'T MAKE IT TO FERTILIZATION. SO...HERE WE GO AGAIN. EXCEPT THIS TIME THE DOCTOR IS GOING TO BE MORE AGGRESSIVE AND THAT I AM SURE WILL MEAN MORE MEDS... *SIGH* I CRIED A LOT WHEN I HEARD OUR EGG DIDN'T MAKE IT BUT I AM OK NOW. I AM EXCITED AND FEEL LIKE THIS IS GONNA BE IT. MY WIFE, YES, NOW LEGALLY OFFICIALLY AND TILL DEATH DO US PART, WIFE, HAS BEEN ABSOLUTELY PHENOMENAL. SHE HAS AMAZED ME IN NEW WAYS AND HAS BEEN INVOLVED EVERY STEP OF THE WAY. SO IN THE MEANTIME, I LEFT THE RETRIEVAL WITH (HOLD YOUR LAUGHTER AT THE IRONY) BIRTH CONTROL PILLS FOR TWO WEEKS AND AN APPOINTMENT TO COME BACK ON SEPTEMBER 21ST. SO HERE IS TO MAKING THAT PRACTICE RUN WORTH EVERY SINGLE MOMENT.
