Mid week..

Still on a very low dose of lu.pron. Folli.stim is definitely in play, though. I am feeling a little tired by the end of the day. And I forgot how much it stings as it goes in! No major hot flashes, yet. I am sure they are coming. Just you wait. My baseline is tomorrow, and I have a hunch the lupron will be stopped tomorrow. Not sure what will happen with the folli.stim. Likely I will get two phone calls after my results are in. One from the Wizard's nurse, and one from the Wizard himself, trying to make sure the nurse told me everything I need to know. Unfortunately, I work 9-9 tomorrow, so we will see what happens. I am hoping to get off early. With luck, I will be home by 7 PM.

I was thinking about this cycle on my way home from work today. I would love it if it works. It would be a fantastic birthday gift. (My birthday is Friday.) But if the cycle does not work, we get another try. And that is all right. I have talked about what would happen if the cycle does work, and I have thought about what would happen if the cycle does not work. Yeah, it would suck if this cycle does not work. Likely I will not be happy about it. But we can try again. There is a lot to be said for that. I know it makes me a whole lot more comfortable with where I am at right now.

Hubby had a great idea for a birthday cake for me. He wants a birthday cake in the shape of a petri dish with a sperm and an egg inside. I found a cake baker who would be willing to do one for me by Friday. I will post pictures when I get it. (If you have not guessed, Hubby is pretty excited about the IVF.)

Saturday my favorite band is coming to my favorite restaurant, so I know where I will be in Friday night. It should be a good time, and a great distraction from everything.

Will post more when I have time after my appointment.
