Nice to have a day free of doctor appointments AND shots. I'm celebrating by sitting in a recliner eating yogurt. I remember the day before my laparoscopy in January and absolutely dreading the enema that went along with the night before preparations.

To get ready for the retrieval tomorrow, I have another enema tonight. Enema. I almost would rather have another round of shots tonight instead. I joke...sort of.

I feel off. A little excited and nervous too, but mostly I just feel like I want these eggs out of me.

Every once in a while, I feel a twinge in my ovaries, no pain, but maybe it is just knowing there are so many follicles in there and they are close to coming out that I feel like I just want them to be out already. I can't help but think about what pregnant women feel like when the baby is late and they are sitting around all pregnant and wanting that baby out. There are significant differences, but this is as close as I have ever gotten to understanding that feeling.


  1. Hey, thanks for stopping by my blog. Wow, we do have a lot in common, and very similar backgrounds. We both have our ER tomorrow. Good luck to you too! Fortunately I don't have to do an enema. We've been married 7.5 years, and been trying for 6, and I'm 36, going to be 37 in August. I've also have 4 IUIs and one failed IVF.

    I wish you all the best tomorrow. Hope we both get our BFPs this time!

    By the way, I love your blog name. You missed "basket case" in our posting LOL. I'll be following your progress. And Mel (Stirrup Queens) awesome??

  2. Sounds like you have a great amount of eggs for retrieval! Good luck tomorrow!

    And, welcome to the IF blogsphere. :)
