That was easy!

I am not going to lie I went into the hospital last Friday scared to DEATH! Good things usually don't happen to me during surgery and I wake up with bad news, so I was prepared for the worst. Little did I know that it would be my easiest surgery and it only took Dr. W 30 minutes to get in there with a clear path and cut my fallopian tube and get out. When I woke up I had more pain from the cath then my incisions which made me think that they put the Essure in but I was wrong!

Josh said when he saw Dr. W come out he thought "oh crap they couldn't do ANYTHING." But I guess she had a big smile on her face and said everything went perfect and she is positive about our next IVF cycle. Hearing this news even Josh had tears in his eyes (he never cries) but with how CRAZY this journey has been everything seems to finally be falling into place.
This is day 5 after my surgery and it feels like nothing was even done. To make things even better Dr. W made her incisions in my belly button and an existing scar, my belly already looks like Frankenstein but I was not happy knowing I would have a few more!

We will plan our next IVF after our BBQ fundraiser but I haven't decided if I am going to share when exactly we will do our cycle because of the stress of it all but I always share the results. Thank you everyone for your thoughts and prayer we love you all!

I thought it would be cool for me to share these. For a while they were hard for me to look at because all I could think of was what could have been. I know most of you don't know what you are looking at so I will explain a little. The first picture is our embryos from day 3, one was 8 cells and the other was I believe 4 or 6 cell (I can't remember). The next picture was from our second IVF attempt, these were day 5 blastocyst and these usually have 70-100 cells. Pretty crazy huh? It's weird to know this is how we all start off.

These are our day 3 embryos from our first IVF attempt. The 2 with the marks next to them are the ones that we tranferd

These are our day 5 blastocysts.
