Yep, it is my birthday today, and I am celebrating by getting a massage,a manicure, and a pedicure. My IVF cake will be delivered this afternoon, and I am heading up to Lexington this evening to have dinner with my parents. I am also probably going to buy myself a new digital camera. I am thinking a ca.non power.shot or pan.a.sonic Lum.ix. Both have consistently gotten good reviews, and both have features that I would want to play with.
I think there is something in the air, and I really hope it comes this way. Over the past few months, it seems like a lot of women on my blogroll have gotten pregnant or gotten their heart's child. I have the usual infertile's mixed feelings. I am very happy that they have achieved their goal, but I am jealous as hell because I want my miracle too. It makes me hope that this cycle works. I have faith in my doctor, I just wish I had more faith in my body, and my eggs, and Hubby's sperm.
I know I have a wonderful doctor in the Wizard, and so far, my body seems to be responding perfectly to all the meds. There is a pretty good chance that this will work. The Wizard seems to be fairly confident that we will have a five day transfer. That is what all of us are hoping for. Keeping fingers crossed. Ultrasound again tomorrow morning with the Apprentice. We should know more tomorrow.
I am feeling really sluggish today, but that is likely not very surprising as I have had a stressful couple of weeks, and I am really freaked out about what will happen next week. Not to mention, I think the folli.stim really wipes me out, anyway. At least right now I can give myself the time I need to unwind and relax as much as possible.
Oh, and if you are in the mood for a laugh, go visit XBox4NappyRash. He has got an infertile's soundtrack which is just perfect. Maybe I will have to visit iTun.es....
