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!!!

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!!!
