Blast off with a little HCG!

Well ladies and gents, we are blasting off tonight with a little HCG at 9 pm tonight!

Today the four of us trotted off to Westwood this morning for another date with the dildo cam. Yes, that would be four of us because FairyEgg's mom finally arrived to join the party! Whoot! She stayed with Tink in the playroom while we went in for our check. FairyEggs literally was so nervous that she felt like she was going to puke on the way down there. As of now there are about five mature eggs and five smaller ones still coming along. We obviously don't want to lose the five that are ready to go so we are triggering tonight!

FairyEggs literally had tears running down her face as we were talking to the nurse because she was disappointed with the number. It didn't help that Dr. Leprechaun has some issues with tact as he said, "You are not a good donor." I immediately piped up with, "No, you are a good donor!" Groan, can't you phrase that some other way? Anyway, while we were talking to the nurse she said, "He's rude sometimes, just ignore him." Can you not see that they have dealt with this before? Anyway, while we were reviewing our instructions with the nurse, I started bouncing around. How can I not? I might not be getting twenty eggs from a twenty-one year old little thang. But I am going to get around five eggs from a girl who can obviously have healthy children and who happens to be one of the dearest people in my life. All I need is for some of those eggs to be good ones! At this point I just don't care about the other crap! This process is all about taking everything one day at a time and dealing with things as they come. Today, I'm happy because I have a chance. It seems better than what I've had so far.

Retrieval is set for Saturday at 9 am.

Faith, trust and a little pixie dust. :) xoxo

  1. some doctors suck at beside manner, but as long as they are good at their job... that said- being hyped up on fertility drugs doesn't help the emotional situation. You truly have a dear dear friend, that is truly so selfless! I hope some day I can meet her (maybe she'll fly out for our dual- baby showers) Oh damn, you'll be gone by then hunh... you both have been, and will continue to be in my prayers. Good Luck with retrieval!

  3. I can't tell you how excited I am for you. FE is such a trooper and I'm sorry Dr. Leprechaun was such a SOB. 5 super duper FE eggs are better than none and you're right in staying positive! This is bound to have a positive outcome, I just know it!

    Lots of love and good luck wishes!

  9. You can prove your doctor wrong when you're all knocked up with those "bad" donor eggs. Best of luck with the retrieval! Spoil that friend of yours.

  11. How could you NOT be jumping around? Dr. Lep sounds like such an idiot! Doesn't he know that these are no regular eggs? These are FAIRY EGGS! And one FAIRY EGG is equal to 10 regular eggs! I swear. I read it on Dr. Google somewhere.
    Love,
    Maddy
