Hurdles

It’s funny, H. and I have the same outlook on the whole IVF process and we didn’t really sit down and discuss it at any point. We both see it as a series of hurdles to get past. So far, the hurdles that we have passed are – 1. Wait for lower FSH – 6.7, 2. found a cyst on CD3 ultrasound, 3. Shrunk the cyst, 4. did injectibles, 5. did trigger shot, 6. had egg retrieval, 7. egg fertilized and survived the night, 8. embryo continued to grow, survived another night, 9. embryo was ready for transfer, 10. transfer occurred. The next hurdle will be Beta, I’m not thinking beyond that. H. and I are being positive and hopeful. We talked about being very cautious and not getting our hopes up, but we realized that either way if it doesn’t work we’re going to be disappointed. We might as well be positive along the way.
