Just got home from this morning’s appointment ( #dateswithwanda ) and WE ARE TRIGGERING TONIGHT! I had just told Mark on the ride to the clinic this morning “wow, I feel like I’ve been pretty stable emotionally during this process” (quite a feat if you know me LOL) and he agreed. Sure enough, right when the nurse started measuring and reading off my follicle numbers, the tears instantly sprang up because I knew we were there!
This body that has been through so much— with me, for me, sometimes despite me— this body of mine has done this hard thing and I am in awe of it. 🏻<3 I can’t describe the level of excitement we both feel!
I started saying “oh my gosh!” after every few follicles and even Mark at one point during the nurse’s reading said “holy crap” and she turned and looked at us, bahaha! It just felt like so much progress since Monday’s appointment, we were both in shock! 🏻 We know we still have a ways to go but we are celebrating this moment! It’s funny, I’m not even scared of that giant trigger shot that goes in my bum muscle tonight, I feel completely on a high and one step closer to the biggest, most important dream we’ve ever had. We love you #TeamBabyHolland and thank you so much for being here with us!
PS: Today is the 40th birthday of the first #ivfbaby <3 <3 <3 There are celebrations happening all over the world, in fertility clinics everywhere, it’s all over the news, it’s such a special day! It feels like magic that we are triggering today!
