On The Wagon

Well, no drinking for me in the near future. I had my last glass of wine last night. I had dinner with friends...B made chicken fried steak for me with all the fixings. My favorite. Yummy.

My present from Jim was that he went to see his mother (pre-planned trip, I was supposed to go, but because of the visits to the doc, I didn't have to go) and I got to stay home. It's been heaven. I called in sick to work on Friday and hung out with B and the girls. It was great. I've spent a fortune shopping this weekend, but I thought what the hell. It's my birthday and the next few weeks are going to be rough.

I went in today for my injection instructions. No biggie. Small needle, so hopefully these will be the easy ones. So it's Lupron for the next 10 days or so and then we'll have to see what's next. I don't really know. I did find out today the this clinic only does IVF with ICSI (where they inject a single sperm into the egg instead of letting a whole bunch float around and do it themselves). Most places charge extra for that. I guess these guys decided they have much better luck that way and just do it with all IVF cycles. Cool!

I guess we're off and running now. I go back in on the 21st for a trial transfer and then at various points between then and the 6th for ultrasound and blood tests.

Please let this work, oh please let this work.

    You know that saying about a journey of a thousand miles starts with just one step?

    It feels like you have taken the first step on the most incredible journey ever - good luck and smooth travelling:)

    (Oh - and I don't think your journey will be a thousand miles long!)
