And so it begins

We have patiently been waiting for this day for a long time. Exactly 10 months ago we found out that we likely wouldn't be able to conceive a baby the "traditional" way. We have gone through a lot the past while from bloodwork, ultrasounds, injections and list grows. Finally we are at the last step IVF. On Sunday we had our egg retrieval which went great but the after effects were killer! I felt as though someone had stabbed me in the stomach about 100 times. Thankfully this feeling didn't last too long but it still took 2 days to recover. We had our egg transfer yesterday so now we wait for 2 weeks and see! I think these next 2 weeks are going to be LONG!! I guess happiness comes to those who wait or at least that is what I am hoping.
I still feel the same as I did before the retrieval and transfer except I am anxious. Time will tell.
Wish us well :)
