2 weeks!

I'm dying here. I think I like the bustle of a stim cycle. Sitting around, preparing for an FET is just so mellow and gives me lots of time to think. Too much time to think. So, I'm trying to stay busy. I started patches on Monday and finally decreased to 5 units of lupron on Tuesday. My regular nurse also called on Tuesday when she got in to tell me that the extra lupron won't affect anything. Whew. I go in on Monday for my first E2 check and then next Saturday for my E2 and lining check. Then we are leaving right away. We are going down to Gettysburg PA on Saturday and meeting up with a good friend of mine from college. We have a ghost tour scheduled Saturday night, we will stick around most of Sunday and then start to head northwest that afternoon. I'm so happy we are doing the road trip - it lets me focus on things like packing, what we need, finding fun things to visit, etc.

I really have nothing much else to say. I'm just really anxious to get started. I think I'm afraid of too thin a lining/too thick of a lining/cancelling the cycle/failure. There are just so many things! So, I'm glad that it is finally the weekend. I'm teaching yoga this morning and have some errands to run this afternoon. Tomorrow morning I have to head out with Brett very early to get to the farmer's market to get more plants (we planted the garden so I'll post pics on Monday), then I have a baby shower for my neighbor Sat afternoon. She got pregnant right after me so she is finally at 30 weeks (hard to imagine we'd be so close to giving birth if all had gone well!). I've spoken of her before - she is the one whose beautiful son will be born with spina bifida- so her and her husband are going through a lot right now- excitement, nerves, fear, sadness, happiness -I can't even begin to imagine all the things they are going through. I'm just hoping that she has a fun, beautiful shower and her boy is born healthier than expected and surprises all of the doctors! After that, I'm sure Brett will keep me busy - we have lots to do around the house! So, I'll update with pics on Monday. Have a great weekend everyone!

I know the waiting without the hustle and bustle has to be the worst, but it's got to be better than the CGH wait, right?? And I just really feel like this is IT for you guys!
Thinking of your friend, too.

Good luck Sue! Thinking of you this cycle - glad you've got so much stuff lined up to keep yourself busy!
Have a fun trip and good luck to your friend!

Oh the nerves and stress, they never end! So I guess this is what I get to look forward to huh? =) I really think this is going to be it for you!

I really hope your friend's son is born suprisingly healthy. Tell her she's in our thoughts.

I'm watching your cycle since it's so close to mine and I can already relate to the nerves and diff between the FET and a stim cycle. I'm glad you have the road trip to plan and I can't wait to see pics of your garden. I bought all of our plants but I haven't put them into the ground since there is a frost warning up here on Sunday. Have fun at the shower and I hope that your neighbour's little boy is better than everyone thinks.

It is really hard to wait and live your life in increments, but it sure sounds like you have a few fun things to keep you busy- planting flowers and an awesome road trip! WIll you be able to update us on your road trip/cycle when you are in CO?

Can't wait for garden pics! I need gardening tips- I am such a newbie and stress over the garden even though it seems to be doing well. And, you motivated me to start yoga again (even though it is just a few poses that I remember). Miss A is doing it with me- she loves the tree pose. Sending good thoughts your way for you and your friend. Two weeks will fly by! Hope you had a great weekend!

You know, Alex and I drove the car out to Colorado from Michigan last summer for our fresh cycle. I loved the road trip - to and from. It was just really good time to relax (ironically). You guys will have fun!

Can't wait to see garden pics - I love seeing other people's gardens and snagging good ideas ;-).
