Pain free and he's da man!

I just have to say my husband is amazing. Not because he gave me a pain-free trigger shot this morning at 2AM, which by the way was a whole better than the Super Nice Doctor Gal but because he just my best friend!

(Oh i have to tell you what I did.....I went to the pharmacy where I get my daily injections, and I had Super Nice Doctor Gal mark my b.u.t.t. with a pen...she drew a square in pen so DH would know exactly where to inject me....when he saw it, he said man, that was a good idea... it was. )

Ok..... I know so many of you too, dealing with this wonderful infertility we've been dealt, have great supporting spouses too. We are lucky indeed ladies....

Doesn't it just make it all the more easier? Not easier I guess, but at least we have the strong support of that one person who is so close to us and who too, is experiencing infertility first hand.

Do any of you ever feel bad for your husbands? (This is probably a statement that a shrink would analyze and have lots to tell me about myself) But sometimes, I just feel so guilty. I know its not my fault that I can't seem to get pregnant, but he is so darn patient and so supportive and sometimes I just think, "what if he married someone else and had a wife who could get pregnant, and didn't have to deal with this shit we have been dealing with for 10 years now...."

Then, I smack myself and know that those thoughts are wrong. Our being brought together was SO from God, big, big time. We have weathered tons of stuff , he has been so forgiving and patient with me, and in the end it has made us both so much stronger and the made us the people we are today. And you know what I am good with that. Baby would be great though.... LOL.

Anyway, just rambling here, but am feelng really good about this, this time.

We are planning a blastocyst transfer for Thursday as I said before. Not sure yet how many they will replace, we'll see I guess how many eggs they get tomorrow and then how many embabies are created.

Looking forward to retrieval tomorrow actually. For us, its a really special day for more than one reason actually. Its a spiritual reason and we are really optimistic that God Will Grant us our most asked for supplication, of course that being a healthy baby.

So my dear friends, I love you all and have a great day wherever you are. I thank you from the bottom of my heart for all your warm wishes, prayers and thoughtful commments. I so love that I have "met" all of you and you guys mean so much to me!

Hey when we have our baby, I'll have a big party and want you all to come to Cairo, ok? We can take the baby with us sightseeing and stuff....wouldn't that be a blast? I wish i could buy you all tickets to come, really I do! xoxoxoxoxo


  1. I just wrote an entry on how I am blessed to have a husband who is caring and understanding and who stands by my side no matter what. We are truly blessed right?

    Me and hubby have always wanted to go to Egypt for a vacation. This was after we had a wonderful time at Turkey 2 years ago. So if you are going to have that party do extend your invitation to us ok... (Shameless me!!!) YOu dont have to pay for my tickets. I will pay for it myself. Hehehe...

  2. Sounds like you have a wonderful husband who you totally deserve, my friend. I have good feelings about this cycle for you!

  3. I'm praying, girl!!! So exciting!

    I would love to come celebrate in Cairo! :)

  4. I'm so glad you are triggered up and ready to go. I hope all goes great with your retrieval and can't wait to hear all about it!!

    I have had those same thoughts about "what if he were with someone else?" It's hard when we feel like it is only our problem getting pregnant. Truth is, I know they would take us over some random fertile myrtle any day of the week!!

    Party in Cairo!! I am so there. LOL. (-;

  5. just wanted to wish you all the best with this cycle!

  6. Yes, you are correct. Having a supportive spouse is such a boon! Although issues change from relationship to relationship, when the cause of infertility gets fixed on a particular partner. But when you are as lucky as us, when the doc says, we don't know what is so darn wrong with any of you, life does get easier. (See, I can ramble too).

    And all the best for that transfer!

  7. And I am not really thinking too much about what I am writing, especially in the first part of the message. Burp!

  8. Glad you have such a rock to lean on. It is invaluable, I know. Looking forward to the retreival and beyond! I'm excited for you.
