...It's The Destination
“Serenity is not freedom from the storm, but peace amid the storm” -Unknown
Still moving forward and taking things one day at a time. My wish for this cycle was to be conservative and aim for quality over quantity. Since at least part of our problem has been ectopic pregnancies, we have no idea what to expect if we actually get a healthy embryo in the place where it belongs. That, coupled with my tendency to respond with gusto, has made my RE treat me with kid gloves. Thankfully it looks like we are getting results that we are both happy with. As of this morning's ultrasound it looks like I will do my evening meds tonight, my morning meds tomorrow, and trigger sometime tomorrow. Retrieval will be on Monday. This is pending today's E2 results, but as long as it hasn't taken a drastic jump we should stick to this schedule. I have another ultrasound appointment tomorrow morning, too. I feel like we can see the station up ahead...just a few more stops now. I keep reminding myself that ultimately this isn't in my control. I read Randine Lewis' "Letting Go" meditation last night before bed and it helped reaffirm my understanding that I have done all I can do by following my doctor's instructions and doing my injections faithfully. Beyond that what will be will be.
