Here we go again.....pills are a-poppin'

I'm popping pills again. More pills. Pills in the form of ESTROGEN to build my lining up nice and thick for future Soup babies to implant (hee hee), and antibiotics. CJ gets to join me (again) and take his own antibiotics as well. We have to make sure his swimmers aren't infected with any illnesses when they are introduced to our anonymous donor's eggies. We also reduced the amount of Lupron we're jabbing into my stomach in the AM; we're down to .05 units and it doesn't faze me any more. (HA). I hate shots. Hate them. I am NOT looking forward to starting the Progesterone shots again in the butt. The needles are thick and about 10 inches long, I swear. Owie.

Pray for a good lining. I have my ultrasound on Wednesday, the 17th at 7AM to make sure we're where we want to be, and I'll get more info then. So stay tuned.

In other IVF prepping news, I just sat down this AM and set up some pre-ET (embryo transfer) Reiki, chiropractic, and acupuncture appointments, as well as post-ET Reiki sessions. We have to make sure my body is all aligned and the energy is positively flowing throughout all the proper channels.

Yes, my heart is fluttering in it's chest just typing this out.

So exciting! Not that you have to take more shots, but that go-time is so close. Can't wait to hear all about it next weekend.

Just got caught up...yet we still have so much to catch up on!!!

Keifer is truly a mini-Mads. It's blowing my mind to hear you saying the same things I was saying about Maddie at her age. You wait, she'll be reading or close to it before she turns three. I am so getting her a mini-piano for her next bday or Christmas or something!!!

Maddie entered the terrible 2s at 15 months. Enjoy it, because 2.5 to 3.5 is much worse! LOL. Madeline is just now starting to get a bit better about being defiant and sassy...it's still there, but I think it's better!

I held a teacup Yorkie named Lexi all weekend--she wasn't even 3 lbs!

And you've started the antibiotics! Holy cow, I have butterflies in my tum tum!!!!

Call me when you have time--we so need to talk. I miss you and love you, dear sis. :-)

it's so exciting and scary too, but I am thinking so much GOOD stuff for you that you don't need to be afraid, just do all the stuff.
I hated the progesterone too, they hurt..but hey whatever it takes right. Just tell CJ to be nice to your tush!!! :)
