The entire morning passed, but still no call.
Wherever I went, I made sure my phone was right next to me, or in my pocket. They said they would give me a call, but they did not state when.
So the waiting game began.
You will go out in joy and be led forth in peace; the mountains and hills will burst into song before you, and all the trees of the field will clap their hands.
The IVF Process
I had friends who told me they had 20 over eggs when they did their IVF procedures, so they managed to store the remaining eggs after their first attempt. Naturally, I was wondering how mine would fare.
The lady had already said yesterday, “You only have two eggs.“
TWO? Only two…?
I was so sad.
But still thankful that at least there were two...
Finally, in the early afternoon, while I was just pottering around the dining room area trying to occupy my mind with thoughts unrelated to the egg extraction and fertilization results, an unknown number was reflected on my beeping phone, and I answered it excitedly.
The same lady informed, “We only have one embryo to work with.“
ONE…..? My heart sank.
I was feeling quite down at that point, thinking about all the injections I went through, yet only having one (miserable) chance at success.
She gave me further instructions on what to do for the next day’s implantation procedures, and I jotted down the information on a random piece of paper, while my mind stayed on the fact that I only have one chance with this thing. It was a hard fact to swallow, but then again…one is better than none right?
I continued to pray and asked God for a miracle.
