So they have to call me this afternoon with my bloodwork results. But it looks like we'll be having the retrieval on Wed. or Thurs. I am guessing it will be Thurs. I am getting excited but also nervous. I am so happy just thinking tonight could be my last hormone shot. My tummy will not miss the bruises and little dots all over.
