Nope, no focus around here! I feel like a complete idiot today. I can hardly think about anything except tomorrow’s retrieval. I also hate the idea of not being able to eat after midnight, but I know it’s a good idea. Not that I don’t mind not eating. I skip breakfast all the time. I mind not drinking! Specifically, I’ll miss drinking my decaf latte specially prepared by my loving husband.

I’ve been a good patient by drinking lots of fluids, including g8orade, which today has led my co-workers to believe that I’m hung over. 🙂

Is it tomorrow yet? I’m excited now, but I’m sure the scared shitless feeling will kick in tomorrow morning. Maybe my acupuncture session tonight will help keep me level. Fingers crossed!

P.S. The trigger went down precisely at 1:30am, thanks to my awesome husband. I set the alarm, we hopped out of bed, hubby drew up the meds, and injected it in my behind. Back to bed we went and I woke up one day closer to getting these eggies fertilized.
