Life without children

I read this post on KC's site and it broke my heart because I realized that I too would lead a less than full life if we're never able to be parents. When our son died a few years ago, a part of me was lost for ever. A light went out that day and it may never shine again. KC, I echo your pain and I pray that you and I and the numerous men and women who long to be parents have our prayers and dream fulfilled.

lucky 4

The quads are in...yes we did 4. Given my age it is unlikely that more than 2 will implant, in fact the probability that none will is probably the highest but we are trying hard not to think in such negative terms. They were grade 2, 8-cell and 1 9-cell. I had 2 sessions of acupuncture, one before and one after. Another is scheduled for Saturday.

Now we pray and have faith. TMI alert---horrible constipation so off to make a ANOTHER prune smoothie :)

Retrieval was today. I do not recall much of the procedure but I was very uncomfortable and in a lot of pain pre retrieval. Now recovering and feeling quite sore. Transfer is planned for this Wednesday but we're hoping that we could move that to a 5 day.

27 eggs were harvested so I am drinking lots of Gatorade and Ensure and eating lots of salt to ward off OHSS.

Off to prepare the first PIO shot. Let the fun times begin :(
