Egg Retrieval Eve

This isn't my first [IVF] rodeo but here I sit with that nervous feeling in my stomach. Ugh. I don't want to be nervous...I just want to get it over with and hear some good news both tomorrow and Friday*. Is that so much to ask?

I really need to calm down though because I'm supposed to be at the hospital at 6 but the surgery isn't until noon. That means I have an entire six hours to freak out tomorrow so I better pace myself.

I'm going to go clean the kitchen--if my kitchen is clean, I feel my entire house is in order even when it isn't--and then go to bed. I really hope I can fall asleep but if I have trouble I think I'll just watch the president's news conference again. Maybe I'll understand him the second time? Anything is possible.

*Friday morning I will find out how many eggs fertilized. I was going to say 'if any eggs fertilized' but I restrained myself for the sake of sounding positive only I'm not really feeling all that positive and I'll always have that horrible first cycle where none of my eggs fertilized.

Thanks for your recent comment.
