Okay, now I'm nervous.

The nurse (not Donna, my regular caller...) called at 2:30- egg retrieval on Wednesday!!!

What am I most nervous about? My earrings. LOL

I ordered some plastic retainers online for my 2 newest piercings, hoping that would be ok, but they won't get here in time.

I stopped today to get some at a local store, and what I got isn't ideal, but I figure I'll give it a try.

Clearly, I'd rather have a baby than 10 holes in my ears, BUT I've been trying really hard not to let this ART stuff take over my life... so do I say "screw it" and just take the jewelry out and possibly allow it to close up?

This probably seems like a really trivial thing to most, but the piercing and healing process is actually pretty intensive, and my 2 newest have been healing for 4 months. What a waste if I lose them now... :(

Of course, the other thing on my high anxiety list for this procedure is whether it will work. I am feeling optimistic about the fact that I have so many follicles, but am so nervous about whether this cycle will result in a baby.

yay! good luck on wednesday :) it's not bad at all.

you are really only "under" for about 10 or 15 minutes. maybe you can take out your piercings right before you go in and then put them back in when you recover.

can't wait to hear how it goes!
