Foli news!

So today is CD 10 and we went in to see what was cooking. Most of my cysts (small foliciles) are slightly larger but we have two 7mm folicles on my right and one 8mm on my left. My NP was estatic and told me that we will just be patient and keep up the shots. We are going in on Saturday to find out what's grown.

I keep telling myself that regardless of what the RE said this one will work! I will ovulate and we will get pregant. So I know there will be at least 3 more nights of shots and I can be ok with that.

*crosses fingers* This will work. I know it will.

A little of this and a little of that

I've had 5 shots and given them to myself! I'm quite proud that I'm doing it and haven't bruised or starting spurting blood. The next thought following that is Holy crap I must be doing it wrong!  ^_^  Side effects so far have been minimal. Beyond my libido rising (which no one in my house has any complaints) I've felt surprisingly normal. Wednesday is my follow up ultrasound and we will see what's going on. I keep hoping that there is some growth in the follicles and in the lining.

On to the next, the house!  On Sunday we built a media center (thanks to various pieces at IKEA, we <3 them!) and I managed to unpack the biggest box for the living room so it was a relief.  All that is left in the house is the dining room/incoming bills desk and for my husband to finish his room (God only knows when that will be done). My office is done and I even have pictures on the walls in there.  Tomorrow afternoon my mother in law is coming over with some things for us that we've had in storage for years. So I've been busing my butt to make sure everything is together for their visit (even though I'm not sure at this point if I will even be home to see them). So this means if I can keep up this pace by the end of the month I will be completely unpacked and ready to start the housewarming parties.

On to housewarming parties! I'm planning on having multiple since visitor parking is so limited here. I figure I'll have 2 a month in July & August so it gets the whole group of people over. One will be a dinner for my best friend and her parents, one will be my coworkers, one will be my friends from sacto and old job, and I think I will have to do two for zac's friends and a separate one for the family. So I'm going to do some in September too! Hahaha I just realized its going to take me three months of parties to get everyone I want to come over and see my place.  That's hilarious! In between all that we have a cousin party, 4th of July parade, visit to fort bragg, and the hubbs is going on a camping trip for a week. Geeze no wonder I'm tired!

I just scheduled the last day for water and power for the old place and I'm a little sad but mostly happy that I've just about fulfilled my obligation for that place. I can't wait to turn the keys in and not have to think about it anymore.

Work is starting to ramp up and I just know this summer will be a special kind of crazy. So far I'm looking pretty good number wise (since we're a bit number driven) which is good.  My annual review is August 20th and I'm expecting a nice pay raise and possibly a title inflation but we will see.

Weight wise I'm up to 191 (as of last Tuesday) so I'm trying to get back in to the habit of going to the gym which is difficult because the most convenient one is either here in SF up the street and then I have to deal with later bart trains which will be FULL or I have to get off and go to the Gym at BayFair and its far from the station and all the reviews are like "this place sucks" so I'm not sure where to go. I may just skip today and go after the MIL comes and goes so that way I can get more done.

Overall I'm happy and pretty healthy. And that's enough for me.

I love my fertillity clinic

I started my period this afternoon (which was a day late, thanks so much for not sticking to the plan!) and I called my clinic in a semi-panic because I have tomorrow off and I have to get seen then or else I have to skip this cycle due to scheduling conflicts. The NP who schedules the appointments isn't answering, of course. So I leave a calm message (totally acting!) and asked her to give me a call asap. She calls me within 15 min and we have a bit of a chat before I get in to the reasons why I have to be seen tomorrow and she says "No problem lets see what's still open". No spots for my favorite RE or NP but someone new and she says she will most likely have a cancelation so I should call early tomorrow to get that spot. They are just amazing I tell ya! I also got a written letter from my favorite NP telling me how sorry she was the last Preg test was a negative. That really touched me that someone who is so incredibly busy took the moment to sent me a note.

So I get to learn how to give myself injections tomorrow and I already have the happy day dreams of being pregnant at my cousins wedding in January (although its 7 months away and I'd spend the day flying to the east coast).

I have no basis for this but I just feel really really lucky right now. Maybe this is it. *crosses fingers*

time slipping by

Gosh it's been awhile since I've been posting. Looking back on the past few weeks I realize why. I've been going non stop! I've had a wedding in Sacramento, had to visit my adopted grandma in LA, and this weekend I'm moving into our new house! Yes escrow finally closed.  I have about 90% of the house (that I am responsible for) packed and am trying to get everything done before my MIL shows up on Saturday. 

Cycle wise we got the negative on the Pregnancy test this morning. I'm not suprised but I am rather proud of how I didn't get my hopes up too high on this one.  So I'm currently trying to time my CD3 to be June 15th since I have the day off so I think I need to stop taking the progesterone on the 9th since it takes 3 days for me to get my cycle after stopping.
