Night 6 is in the books! We added Cetrotide tonight, which prevents my eggies from dropping too soon! I'm feeling very proud of Mark & I for all that we are doing! I was scared for this one because again, I've heard things (like bad rashes and reactions and migraines), but I just thought about Mark, I thought about our baby, and I did it! It's incredible the strength that can be mustered when you have that determination.
Even though my belly is sore, even though I'm exhausted, even though I'm running out of places to poke every night, that beautiful baby at the end of this journey is what makes it all worth it. No matter how our story turns out, I know we are meant to be parents. And going through IVF is teaching me so much about myself. I am a strong person, I am brave person, and I am capable of hard, physically demanding things. This journey may not be one we would have chosen, but it chose us-- and it is teaching us so many important lessons along the way.
PS: Butterflies were with me at the pool again today! :)
