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.

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 :(
