I haven't had a chance to update since Monday, been busy getting ready for the holiday.

Baseline was fine and we're good to go. I started my patches. Lining check is Dec. 4.

Have a wonderful thanksgiving!!!

Ready, Set....

And here comes our FET. AF came Friday and I'm set for baseline monitoring on Monday and if everything comes back like it should I'll start vi*velle patches then. I've been using them for my HRT and I really like them better then the pills and the clinic was fine w/ it so that's a small change we've made.

I called a local accupuncturist friday since I want to try it for this cycle. She didn't answer but I left a message and I'll see if she gets back to me tomorrow.

I'm so excited and scared about this cycle, it's the last chance for us and I want it to work SOOOO badly. I'm still considering bringing up transferring 3 but I'm not sure if it's a risk I want to take yet.

I'm hoping the holidays are going to keep me distracted over the next few weeks. It's going to be a looong month or so.

Sorry for the silence, things are good except for the fact that we have no internet right now. It's frustrating the heck out of me so I'm popping on at my in-laws. Banks is teasing me that I'm addicted to the internet.

We switched from cable to dish last week and got internet through the phone company but it has yet to work.

On the upside before it went out I did something silly and fun. I e-mailed an online "psychic" that was mentioned on the IF board for a prediction on how many children I'd have and when. My reading said (in more detail then I'm going to bore you with) that I'd have 3. 1 girl and 2 boys who might be twins.
The girl would be conceived or born in November am I stretching it to think that since my lmp will be in November that it might be from this cycle? ;)

It's a fun distraction and it's helped me get positive about this cycle or more accurately that I will be a mom at some point, even if it's not as soon as I'd like.

On the FET front not much to tell right now AF should be coming between now and Saturday depending on how cooperative my body is. If it comes in that time frame we should be on track for 12/11 or so for our transfer.

More odds and ends from life to add but need to go be social.

I'm alive and well

I'm surviving what's turning out to be a VERY long week at work. Other than work suckiness it's actually been a pretty good week.

On a completely unrelated to IF note, I'm really looking forward to seeing New Moon in a few weeks. I'm hoping it's closer to the book then Twilight was. It looks much better based on the previews.

I'm getting nervous and excited about December. I'm hoping for the best and thinking how awesome it would be to get that news right before Christmas. And how adorable our baby would be next Christmas.

I'm hoping everything works for us to go Dec. 11 but I won't know for a few weeks if everything's lining up for us to go up there then.

I did my usual checking out the due date and if it works I'll be due around 8/28 just after my b-day. Which would be kinda cool. I'd have the best Christmas and b-day presents ever, being pregnant for Christmas and A baby for my b-day.

And today you know that's good enough for me
Breathin' in and out's a blessing can't you see
Today's the first day of the rest of my life and I'm alive
And well...I'm alive and well
