The countdown (and injections) begin...

We're now on schedule for IVF retrieval and subsequent embryo transfer in the first two weeks of 2009. Started b/c week of 11/23 and Lupron injections 12/15. I'm scared, hopeful and excited all at once. dr. told us to prepare for 50-60% success rate. I'm 31//hubby 26 w/low motility and morphology. chance of spontaneous pregnancy 0-4%, IUI 5-12% and IVF 52-60%. Chance of twins 25-30%. Bring it on! We've had names picked out for children since early in our marriage. Every pregancy within our families (he's youngest of 4 boys, I'm oldest of 7 kids) had us waiting for announced names and hoping that our choices didn't get taken. 7 nieces and nephews later and our "selected" names are still waiting for us. It's the little things....

More to come...looking forward to this journey. Prepared for disappointment but holding out for hope and by God's grace we'll be expanding our family of 2 to a clan of 3, or 4! No triplets or beyond. I'm not sure we're up for that many kiddos at once.
