Up Next

So I went and had blood work done. And boy was it chilly outside... 37 degrees. BURRRR!!!      Results came back in range, but had to hold off on the Delestrogen for 2 days :( as I didn't start my cycle yet! BOOOO!!!!   

On Christmas Day I got to start the Delestrogen... I was a little nervous and a tad scared!   However, I handled that needle like a C-H-A-M-P!!!   :)

Will have to see how this 2 day delay changes things...  Everything else is going good, well except for these bas headaches I have gotten! :( 

Well that is it for now.....

And it all started....

So I finally got to start my shots!  Who would have thought that someone would be happy about having to give themselves injections. Me!!!   :) It's been a few days, it isn't as bad as I thought it was going to be. The first night was fun because I had my son in the bathroom with me, and questioned if I was ok after I gave myself the shot. I think he was more concerned then I was. My first appointment to check levels is right before Christmas, on the 23rd!!   

How exciting it is to be doing this journey! I know I keep saying it, but it is truly AMAZING!!!

FINALLY, I got the news!!!

So I started birth control a little over a week ago... was told I could be on it up to 3 weeks :(   

I got a call today from the nurse today at Dr. Ringler's office, saying the the donor will have medical clearance on Monday.... what does that mean for me????   I get to start Lupron on Tuesday is what that means!!!   :)     I am super excited, yet a little nervious for it to all be happening!!   She also told me that the transfer date is set for JANUARY 11TH!!!     Oh my gosh!!!!    :)      How happy this all makes me. I emailed my IPs just now to give the great update, and now I can't wait to hear back from them about it!!!

It's About Time

Yay... So I am finally at the next step!  I get to start birth control on Tuesday and then all the fun shots start. Never thought I would be so excited about starting my cycle, birth control and needles :)  Had a great Thanksgiving with the family, and even started decorating with my mom! I always love this part of the year! Christmas is such a big thing in my family!   The next posts should be fun!!!

Still Waiting....

So here we are in November, and I NEVER thought that I would want to have my cycle start like I have now!!!    Geez, a few months back my cycle changed to that of my sisters and now in Novemeber it is NO WHERE to be seen!  Just my luck, it decided to go back to my OLD cycle. Just great!!!   So nothing new and exciting is happening yet....

BUT I did have a dream the other night that I got to share with my IPs on Christmas that they were going to be having a larger family! I so wish that is the news I get to share wiith them for Christmas!!  how exciting to hear that!  

So for now, I will be finishing my classes up (Anthropology, Psychology and Administration of Justice- Corrections) will be done the 18th or so of Decemeber!   Can't wait!!!   This has been one trying semester!  I need a break and NO MORE online classes :)  

That is all for now... I can't wait for the shots and baby making time!!!

So this is it...

So it has begun.  I have spoken with my IP's both on the phone and via email, they are super excited about this journey as am I. Let's see... I have gone to my first appointment of many, and had blood drawn and had to also tinkle in a cup :) 

Then I had the pleasure of a not so fun test, but got through it like a champ!  The radiologist said that I was a trooper and didn't even complain once...well at least until I left the office. Yikes, that was bad!  I then had the pleasure of sitting in TRAFFIC!!!   UGH, Santa Monica Blvd. is no fun at 5pm, lesson learned!

I am so blessed to have such an amazing set of IP's to work with. And now I just wait until the next step... this is such an amazing venture!! :)
