Good News

This morning we had our first ultrasound with Dr. N. He informed us that we have 9 eggs. He said he would have liked to see 15 to 20, but we knew going into it that I would have half the amount most girls my age would have. He did say the ones that I have look good. They also did blood work I am guessing I will hear about that later. But anyways I am so happy about my 9 eggs. The time is getting closer. I am so excitied!!!!!

BEP Concert

This past weekend on Saturday I went to the Black Eyed Peas Concert with two of my best friends. We had a blast!!!! The concert was awesome. Thank you so much Melissa for inviting me to go with you. It was a much needed girls night.

Last Wednesday I started my shots and taking the pill. So far it is going good. Of course I don't like the shot, but it is not too bad. I definitely have to give it to myself, a coworker tried to do it the first time and there was no way. But anyways everything is going good. I have been really tired. But that is one of the side effects. I also stopped the birth control on Sunday. I am really not ready for that cycle to start it is going to be a big pain. This Thursday I go to see Dr. N. hope there is good news and everything looks good. He will do an ultrasound and do blood work. Hope everyone has a good week and I will post after the appointment to let you guys know how it goes.

IVF update

Last Tuesday I received my medication. It was a huge box by the way. It was a little overwhelming. By coordinator had called me the week before and went over everything with me so I would know what meds needed to be in the fridge and what did not. She is very helpful. Her name is Peggy. I love her. If I have any questions she always gets back with me that same day.

The big process starts this Wednesday the 17th. I am excited for it to finally be here. I have my calender of when I take what meds ready to go on the fridge. I can't believe that in less than a month I will be in St. Louis. We have an appt. with Dr. N. 3/25/10 for an ultrasound then we go back again 4/5/10 for another ultrasound and blood work. We leave 4/6/10 after we get off work to drive to St. Louis and we have an appt. the 7th with Dr. Ahlering and we go from there. I hope everyone has a great week. I will let you know how it goes on Wednesday.

Trip to Mississippi

This past weekend we went to Mississippi for Chris's grandma's birthday. We left on Thursday and got there Friday afternoon. I love going to Mississippi, it is so pretty. We had a lot of fun got to see lots of family that I have not seen in awhile. It was a very short trip though, we came home on Sunday. I am so glad we were able to go. I love all his family, they are all so caring. I can't wait till the next trip!!!
