It's So Close

I think today will be my last day of stimming. After my bloodwork and ultrasound yesterday, they said they think retrieval will take place on Wednesday (!!!!). I will find out for sure tomorrow.
I know my stomach that has become a landscape of bruises would be thankful. So would my ovaries. They are so swollen right now it hurts to do pretty much anything . . . walk, drive (over bumps), clean, sneeze, cook . . . you name it, it hurts. When I went for the ultrasound yesterday, the nurse was having trouble even seeing my uterus because of all the follicles. It's a good problem to have, but I am so ready for them to go back to "normal".
I will say though, this whole process has not been nearly as bad as I thought going in. I still have a ways to go, but I have realized I am much stronger than I thought I could ever be. My husband tells me I am doing way better than he imagined. He thought for sure I would be whining every night before my injecions. I can say this has only happened once (ok, maybe twice). Looking back at where we started, it's hard to believe we are almost there now.
Praying Wednesday is the final date they give me tomorrow . . . ahhhh, it's so close!
