{Please Please Please}

We had 2 eggs put back in yesterday. One A++ and one A. Nothing else made it and there is nothing else to freeze. For some reason I was positive we would have a back-up and I'm trying super hard not to be discouraged. With 3 years of back luck behind us, it is hard to always be positive. Out of 18 follicles, 13 eggs were recovered, 7 were fertilized and two made it.
I have so many questions that I don't feel like have been completely answered.
Is this normal? Am I normal? Why didn't more work?
I am praying, hoping, praying and hoping that the two embryos hanging out inside of me are going to take. This, I think has been the hardest part for me.
Just waiting.
The next two days are when the magic happens, so please, please, please pray for us!
(and then maybe pray so more. we need all of the miracles we can get. Or really, we just need one miracle. Or I would take two. I would even take three--ok, maybe three would be a little crazy.)

On a side note, it was amazing watching the two embryos go in. Really amazing. We have pictures of them, but I'm too superstitious to post them unless we get a positive result. It would be just be too sad.

Scott & Lindsey,
You know you are in our prayers. We love you guys lots and are hoping wonderful things for those eggs of yours.... I've heard my mom's stories of their 10+ years of waiting my whole life so I feel a fraction of your pain.

I'm definitely praying for you, Lindsey. I amazed with your strength to go through this with no guarantee of success. It will be a difficult couple of weeks while you wait, but I know you can hang in there. Keep us posted on how you are feeling!

Love, Tara

We're praying for you guys! And just to send some good luck vibes your way, I'm crossing my fingers, wearing my fortune cookie good luck charm, and searching for a 4 leaf clover! :)

I have never met you, but I am married to Ryan Colby. I was talking to Janet yesterday and she told me about your blog. Ryan and I are dealing with some of the same struggles as you guys - frustrating. Anyway, I just wanted you to know we are praying and hoping for you!
