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!
