I received word yesterday that the transfer will occur on either July 10th or 11th.  This is assuming/hoping/praying that my lining looks good at the ultrasound on July 3rd.  I increased my dose of estrogen pills today to 3, from 2.  Transfer isn't too far away.  It's just crazy how fast time is flying now!!  I am getting more and more excited!  I can't wait to be pregnant.  I can't wait to see G&M again!

It's gone!

I went for another ultrasound this morning to see if the fluid was gone.  It was!  I was so happy to hear her say that!  We are good to go!  I got my calendar from the clinic.  I begin estrogen tablets and patches today and drop my lupron to 5 units daily.  I will do this and go for labs and another ultrasound on July 3rd to see how things are going.  Depending on how my body reacts to the meds, they will schedule the transfer a few days after the labs and u/s.

Well, the doc said there is still some fluid in my uterus.  I don't know why they think I wouldn't since I'm not even done with my period.  Ah, well.  I have to go back on Monday for another ultrasound.  I pray it will be gone by then.  I'm to stay on lupron until further notice.  The labwork results were good, though.  Hopefully it all goes well Monday.

U/S & Labs

I drove over an hour this morning to get my baseline ultrasound and labwork done at the monitoring clinic.  The transvaginal u/s lasted one minute, literally!  That's never a very fun thing, even less-so when you have Aunt Flo!  Ick!  The doctor said it all looked good, thankfully!  I am always so worried/paranoid there will be something in there that will set things back.  The labwork results will be in later this afternoon.  The clinic will get those results and then let me know what to do next.  I'm praying she will say I get to start estrogen.  I'll update when I find out!

I slept quite wonderfully last night.  I only woke up twice.  Once for...I have no clue.  The other was when my hubby's alarm went off.  His goes off about a half hour before mine.  I hate his alarm.  I hate my alarm.  Come to think of it, I truly dislike all alarms that wake me up.  Yes, I am totally not a morning person.  I would love it if I could sleep in until about 9 or 10 every single day for the rest of my life.  That would be lovely.  Mmhmm, it would.  My hubby would be the first to tell you how much I do, indeed, LoVe my sleep.  He tells me he cowers on his side of the bed if I'm hogging the blankets, just so he doesn't have to wake me up.  LOL!  It's like he thinks I would bite his head off or something.  ;)

Anyway, my head seems normal for the first time in the last week.  I don't feel the "dread" of a migraine hovering over me.  So, maybe a good night sleep is what I needed.  < silently jumping for joy >  Carry on....

Land of nod

My head seems to be a tad under control now.  I still feel like I will be overcome by a massive migraine at any given moment, but haven't since Saturday night.  My nights are quite restless, with sleep coming in short spurts.  But hey, at least I am all done with the birth control pills!  I took the last one of those lil bad boys last night. 

So, good ole Aunt Flo should arrive in a few days.  Then I will be off to the clinic for labwork and a baseline ultrasound.  The ultrasound is basically to see my lining's starting point before adding in the meds to make it all nice and cushy for the embies!  Then, I will start on estrogen, patches and pills, I believe.  I'm so stinkin excited to be moving along!  We are looking at transferring the first or second week of July.  We will get to see G&M again then!  I can't wait to see them again and especially under not-so-rushed circumstances like the first time.

Okay, this lupron is seriously kicking my ass.  My head started hurting yesterday.  It has actually intensified throughout the night.  I could barely move this morning.  Hopefully this is only until my body gets used to the med.  So, I will be popping some tylenol in hopes that it will work today, even though it didn't work yesterday.  Wish me luck!

Lupron here I come!

I was told today by the nurse that I could begin Lupron tonight.  I'm not gonna lie, I was nervous.  I had never given myself a shot.  I never even look when I get shots or get blood taken at the hospital.  I prepped and got it all ready.  The needle is just a small insulin needle.  I couldn't even feel it go into my stomach.  It was pretty darn easy, actually.  So, now I may or may not become a severely anal, psychotic bitch.  So, I'm apologizing in advance to my husband, my kids, the rest of my family, co-workers, grocery checkers, other drivers on the road....basically anyone who crosses my path.  :)  I blame it all on the Lupron.  You have been forewarned!

Meds are here!

My meds arrived on Thursday, as expected.  I will hopefully hear from the clinic as to when I should begin Lupron.  Here's a pic of all my meds, needles, syringes and sharps container.  All this stuff to help an amazing couple have a baby!!  :)
