moving right along!!

monday dh and i went to dr. d's office for our med training and cycle planning visit.

we paid all fees
talked about cycle start date
and then......
nurse "i" mentioned the difficult transfers. she said it had been over a year since my d&c and hysteroscopy, and she was a little concerned about my cervix possibly closing up a little. she decided to schedule a trial transfer, just to be on the safe side. she said as long as the trial transfer went smoothly, we should be good to go for med start on friday..... but if it did not go well, i might have to have another hysteroscopy and d&c. and we would get pushed back......

i. was. terrified.

she gave me a Rx for valium.... just to make sure i was nice and calm for the trial.

med's were ordered and consent forms were signed.

today was the trial. i woke up in a great mood. torturing dh the minute he was up.... he asked if i had already taken the valium, because i was in such a good mood :D

we went to dr. d's office.... bladder so very full, it was all i could think about. dr. d said he was hopeful that this trial would go well.

as he looked at the ultrasound he said, "ok, the bladder is full, maybe too full." (i felt it might be, and i hate when you have to pee so bad, they tell you just to pee a little.) but he did it!! it took two tries, but he did it. and i think dr. d was more relieved than i was. actually EVERYONE was relieved. the stenosis in my cervix is pretty bad i guess, because all the nurses were so happy.... high fives as we were leaving the office!!

lupron starts on friday!!

i can't even believe it is here, i am so excited and truly optimistic....this is going to work!!

we go back april 29 for first ultrasound and stim start!! WOOO-HOOO!!

also, thanks so much for your comments about my mom :D
she was pretty sick and was in the hospital for 7 days, but is out now, and doing soooooo much better!!
