Tomorrow, tomorrow!

I can't believe we start stimulation TOMORROW!!! This is so exciting to me.  It's really really real :) The Lupron is this awkward part of IVF where you're actually going the opposite direction when you think about it, so to start ovary stimulation is just so "trying to make a baby". I love it!

We also both start the Z-pack tomorrow.  And we decrease the Lupron to 5 units rather than 10.  We start mixing our own meds- Follistim and Menopur with the Lupron, all in one syringe.  It's a little tricky, hopefully we don't mess up.  And I start the pre-natal that they perscribed to me. Then on Thursday we go in for our first post-stim ultrasound and keep being monitored every day or two until retrieval. This is really it.  Keep us in your prayers!

My dad's best friend and his wife are in town this weekend.  He's like a second father to me. He never had any girls, just two boys.  So he calls me the daughter he never had.  They're coming up to our house to check it out and hang, then we're all getting together for a wine party tonight.  Of course, I'm the designated driver, which I love right now.  Having this exciting reason to not drink is so ok with me.  I mean, I would love to be able to drink too...but absolutely love this much more.

I'm off to clean house and hit the grocery store. I'm bringing the meat and cheese platter for the party tonight. Aside from my husband.

Oh tomorrow! Can't wait!


  1. Yay to starting stims!! It's really happening!!
