Today has officially been 14 weeks that we've been waiting for our probe to be created. Our meeting this week with the doctor went well. She said that although the probe is almost done, it needs to be 99.9999% done in order for me to start injections. We're still waiting, but as soon as those scientists say go, we go.
As soon as they say go, I will do injections for 10 days followed by the egg retrieval on the 12th day or so. The idea of injecting myself in the stomach is super scary. (The idea of S injecting me may be scarier :)). Side effects of the injections include headaches, tiredness, bruising and bloating. For the egg retrieval itself, I'll be under anesthesia. The procedure itself is usually anywhere from 15-45 minutes. Afterwards, I will be on bed rest and uncomfortable -- but nothing that tylenol and a heating pad can't fix.
It's weird to think that in less than a month we could be creating life. So weird.
