I sobbed this morning. never in my life had I sobbed so hard from absolute happiness and utter relief.

yesterday, 20 eggs were retrieved from me, 15 were able to be fertilized…..and 13 are growing!! THIRTEEN!

what a complete difference from our first cycle. I didn’t know what to expect, and honestly I feared a repeated outcome. this news was the first feeling of a victory I’ve felt in over 2 years. what a feeling.

this journey is far from over, even though we can celebrate that we overcame this huge obstacle. these little glimmers of life need to grow strong and become blastocysts. saturday is the day we find that out. and man, I’m sure it is going to feel like forever until that day comes.

but you know what? it’ll be #worththewait.
