Day Three

I had a difficult time sleeping last night. Although I’d like to, I can’t place all the blame on the loud chick upstairs in my loft building. I was just really excited about my appointment this morning. I feel like I’ve been waiting for such a long time and it’s finally here. Honestly, I'm feeling a little sick to my stomach. I’m excited about what this means or the possibility of what this is. One of these eggs could be my kid one day. That’s pretty freakin’ cool!

Quick Review

Here’s a quick run-down of how the beginning of the egg freezing process works. The first day of my period I contact the clinic and make an appointment for the third day of my period (tomorrow). My appointment is set for 7:50 am. For those of you who are not aware, I’m so not a morning person, but I can totally make an exception for this. Anyway, when I'm at the clinic I will get blood drawn and an ultrasound. The ultrasound will show how many follicles I have on each ovary, which allows the doctor to guestimate how many eggs may be able to be retrieved. The blood work will show my hormone levels.
