I went to the doctor this morning for a scan and bloodwork. My body doesn't like the Follistim and I only have 3 mature follicles. Which means that my IVF has been changed to an IUI. I am very disappointed but I guess it is what it is. I am trying to be patient and remain positive but I just feel like this is just one more time my body has failed me. The doctor said that this is a heat IUI cycle my lining looks great but putting my body through the egg retrieval for 3 mature follicles really isn't worth it. I guess I will know more tomorrow. For now I am going to take a nap.

Oh my...

Things are beginning to move FAST now in both the baby front and the move front.

First on the baby front.  I am still doing 150 Follistim AM and PM, and 5 units of Lupron PM.  I go back to the dr on Friday for another scan and more blood work.  Still on target for the egg hunt on July 3rd.

Second, the house.  Oh WOW!  it has really come along quick.  We got a call that we can do the interior paint on July 13-17th.  Closing is set for July 31.  which means we can move in August 1st!  Whoohooo!  Almost 9 months to the day that we listed our house for sale!  Not too bad!

Ch-Cha-Cha Changes

WOW, what a week!  I 'finally' started my period on Tuesday.  That was relief.

Work was a disaster this week.  I finally bit the bullet and turned in my letter of resignation on Thursday.  Unofficially, I told him on Wednesday, but he chose not to hear it.  I am completely relaxed about my decision.  I know I will be able to find a part-time job in C-bus, when we get settled.  I was supposed to eliminate stress from my life and this week proved that where I was working was ANYTHING but low stress.  So now I will be a 'real housewife of Delaware, Ohio!"

I went to Cleveland for my baseline scan and labwork.  Scan looked good.  Will get results of labwork this afternoon.  I will be doing three shots from here on out. Fun!I am really excited and so excited that we are getting close!  I can concentrate on getting pregnant, moving, and unpacking and decorating our house!  Whoohooooo!!!!

Please pray for my aunt who is having surgery on Monday to remove a cancerous tumor in her lung.  She is expected to have a full recovery and not have radiation or chemotherapy.  I just worry ya know.

More waiting

I swear that this IVF - road to parenthood is no joke!  I once again am waiting for my period to start.  Really these medicines that mess with your cycles need to be changed. I know better than to do a HPT, as it will depress me.  But really when will this start?  Everyday that she isn't here, messes up the calendar.  Oh well, I am trying to tell myself to 'just be patient'

The house building is moving along.  We are more than half way!  Yippeeee!  Jeff will go out tomorrow to check on progress.  I hope we have moved to the next phase. Haha!  Again, I need to 'just be patient'

My brother is here visiting this week.  He is doing some work for my parents.  He brought his dog, Vicky.  Vicky, Cali and Sammy have played together...well, Cali and Vicky have played together.  Sammy, could really care less.  He isn't amused by this new series of events. 

Trust in the LORD with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make your paths straight.

meeting with the RE

We met with the doctor at length about IVF.  We are starting this cycle.  I have a TON of medications delivered tot he house.  I am slowing working through understanding...but really I am just going day by day.  This Friday I need to have a Progesterone draw done.  So, I will go to Cleveland and get that taken care of.  I should get the results of the mammogram this week. and then we will play it by ear..I will most likely be starting shots the end of this week beginning of next.
