"Oh, yes sir. Bit me right in the buttocks. They said it was a million dollar wound, but the army must keep that money 'cause I still haven't seen a nickel of that million dollars."I think of that quote every time Mook comes at me with a needle. All this IF stuff can cost a pretty penny, AND the reward (in theory) is obviously worth even more than a million dollars, but like Forrest: I'm still waiting on that end prize....
And as of this morning, I have a million dollar wound on my right cheek. Prog. injections began last night--so that leads me to tell you that my monitoring appointment yesterday went really well.
My lining at day 14 was 13.6--my fav nurse said that they consider anything at 6 good, so my lining got an A+! And to me the best news was that I had no cysts--so thankful for that! She was pretty sure based on my lining that all the hormones would check out OK--and I had to wait until the end of the day to find out! Oooo agony! My prog level was 0.27, so I definitely had not ovulated. My estridol was 427--and I forgot to ask if that was good, but she didn't indicate otherwise, so there ya have it.
Transfer will be on Wed. the 16th at 11AM. Please, pretty please, I ask for your prayers and thoughts for a good thaw! We have 3 on ice, and I would be so grateful if all 3 made it...that is what I am most anxious about right now. Hoping that I don't get a call that we have to cancel...so all positive thoughts from here on out--will ya help me? Annnnd, since Chas reminded me that its another de-lurk day, I could use all the positive feedback as you can muster! Won'tcha be my neighbor by de-lurking?
So back to the buttox...actually 2 buttoxi (sounds like a good plural version to me)...Mook and I have been spending more time focusing on our couch time--this involves us taking our buttoxi to sit with a counselor. We made the leap-a leap that was a tough place to get to, but I honestly can say that after only one session with her, Mook and I have changed our conversation habits for the better. I am SO thankful for that. I don't think we, as couples, realize the FULL impact infertility can have in all areas of our relationship--and things have surfaced that we may never have had reason to talk about otherwise, so it's amazing how Mook and I are trying to strengthen our relationship in all areas. The past month was tough, ladies and gents. We needed some major re-adjustments, and I am happy to say, we are definitely on our way...
One more butt-related note. Mook is a tiny bit out of practice when it comes to jabbing me...so my love, this is for you--If you need to print it out and bring it home for tonight's jab, by all means!
And the thought that will continue to go through my head for the next 2 1/2 weeks, is something Mook said to our fur-baby last night: "Mommy's gonna get pregnant next week..."
