Is March 3rd!! For sure! At noon!! This time next week I will be on the couch doing nothing (well maybe on here blogging, of course) because I will have 2 freshly transferred embryo's trying to nest into my uterus.

I have to start 2 more pills and some icky cream suppository starting tomorrow, but hey...all in a months worth of warming the oven to bake a fresh baby for my IP's!!

So excited. I think this is going to work this time. I'm hoping. *Fingers crossed* *toes crossed*

Now...I just gotta not let work stress me the hell out, cause it's busy next week. I've already got my orders for it. Joy, joy.

We shall see!!

Medications...man oh man

I think I am on wayyyy more estrogen than my last cycle, because I don't remember being this moody over nothing. My poor husband has had to endure me mood swinging like crazy. One minute I am smiling and enjoying things and the next in tears. And over stupid little sh*t that shouldn't matter.
If it gets me pregnant, all the estrogen Dr. P wants in me, will go into me. Period.

On another note, my last baseline was Monday the 21st and my lining was 8mm, with a triple strip. He was satisfied with that number, but added another estrogen patch to my protocol "to see how your body reacts to it, in case you want to do another one" were his exact words. Ok...if you say so.
So today is the Donor's day to go in and get looked at, so we will have a better idea of if it's going to be 2nd or 3rd of March. Julie called me from OAC to let me know that L & M will be there for transfer, so I am extremely excited to see them again.

However, I have come down with this massive head cold this morning. After everything that has gone on so far with this journey and Dr. P being so strict on everything, I am concerned about him possibly cancelling the cycle because of a cold. Julie is supposed to talk to him about it and get back to me this afternoon, though I will be seeing him tomorrow to get a last baseline and the rest of my protocol instructions.

Praying everything works out, and I am going to stock up on Dayquil and make sure I get lots of sleep and liquids over the next few days.

1 Week to go! Lets hope this time next week those 2 embies are starting to snuggle in my uterus!

Baseline U/S today...

Got in and out qiuckly today at Dr. P's Office. He did a quick u/s and my lining is 7.9mm and he needs it at 8 to transfer and I still have a week and a 1/2 before transfer so it's a green light!

He said he saw the donor this morning and it looks like for sure egg retrieval will be on 25th or 26th of Feb.
Super!! Everything is on time and ready to go.

Also got info on beta's, ultrasounds and all that. Questions I needed answered.

Now, it's extremely close and we're all ready to go, I am just going around in circles in my mind...last transfer it was one embryo, PGD done before hand, un-proven (new) donor, 70 year old sperm in that embryo and stressful travel. This time, it's down the road from home, I get to go home to rest, 2 non-PGD embryo's, 50 year old sperm with a 3x proven donor and a Dr. with much higher success rates. Is it ok to think it will actually work this time? Am I getting my hopes to high? IDK...oy...

I guess we'll see here in 2 1/2 weeks or so if I get a BFP or not...

And we're off...

So, this is the start of a new blog, because it's a new journey. This is what I should have done in the first place. Hopefully, this one will result in a pregnancy for me to blog about! We shall see, as transfer is in less than 2 weeks.

I am super excited for my IP's and ready to give them a baby or two. Preferrably just one. =D
