"she's doing terrific"

that's what Pati said when I checked w/ her today. No specifics on how the donor is doing just that things are going well and moving along for retrieval to be on Monday (4/6).

As for me my lining is plumping up and is already @ 8 today. I'm hoping for a nice fluffy lining for transfer. Still continuing estrace and baby aspirin.

I'm just getting really excited. I was thinking about the fact that this time next week we should be in Syracuse and have info on Egg retrieval.

So things are going along and ae going well. I'm just excited and so far I'm doing really well and patiently waiting for next week.

Let's Get This Party Started!

Yeah! the donor is starting stims tonight. I'm so excited and happy and I can't believe it's REALLY REALLY happening.

I'm also sooo glad to be starting estrace again. I've been miserable the last couple weeks w/ ht flashes and all the other lovely menopausal symptoms that come w/ being off HRT.

CNY also has me doing baby aspirin.

We're looking at ER being on/around April 6, and ET between April 9-11.

I have my lining check on 3/30, which I've already scheduled.

The donor has monitoring on 3/30, 4/1, & 4/3

roughly 15 days and counting.

One step forward, 2 steps Back

920 got her lupron bleed!! Pati e-mailed and said she’d gotten her bleed and was coming in today. Pati said she’d update me once that happened and she had info for me.

Boo, the donor has a cyst so she’s going to continue lupron till next Monday and see if it’s gone. This is a mixed bag. On the one hand it puts things off a week which makes me sad, on the other hand if she stims for the same length of time as her last cycle we’ll be in town for Wicked which would be great. On the negative side that puts the edd around Christmas. I totally didn’t want that but oh well. I’ll totally be over that if the cycle works.

I guess basically I’m disappointed but ok. I e-mailed Pati about how long it would be before the cyst was gone and she said it could take up to 2 weeks. So it looks like retrieval and transfer will be in April instead of March.

I’m really ready for things to get moving but it also really feels like the delays are for a reason. I’m trusting God and hanging in for now.

Home from the Hospital

Banks scared the heck out of me Thursday.

I was at my bible study and when we wrapped up I went to turn the ringer back on my phone and hd 16 missed messages from everyone but Banks. That sent me into a panic b/c I knew that couldn't be good. So I quickly called back one of the people and She told me that Banks was in the hospital b/c of an erratic heartbeat. So I rush over there and he's in an exam room and his friend and parents were w/ him.

They admitted Banks and we were there for 2 long days. They tested him for Addison b/c his mom has it, ran some heart tests but never found anything of concern. They gave him a prescription for a beta blocker and sent us home today w/ instructions to follow up w/ a pcp this week.

I'm so glad he's ok. He says he feels much better and the doctor feels that the beta blocker should keep his heart from doing thsi again.

Anyway that was the beginning of our weekend.

No News

Donor has been on Lupron for 9 days and so far hasn't reported getting AF. Pati said she'd have her in for an U/S Friday to see what's going on if she doesn't call before then.

The waiting is getting to me. Being SOOO close to the actual ER/ET and still so far away is making me very antsy for things to get started.

Anyway wanted to update.

So it begins

The donor is scheduled to start Lupron tonight! I'm not sure if ER is still going to be around March 16 or not. Initially she said 920 would start lupron on the 25th (the day 920 got AF) but she was just guesstimating and I don't know if she meant the 3rd or if it's pushing things back a week.

Regardless I'm so excited things are coming together. We're really doing this and on our way to our cycle! I'm so excited. I can't wait to get to Syracuse and have ET.
