Cry baby cry...

Okay so I'm a cry baby. Always have been, always will be and it dosn't really bother me...usually. Ever since I started taking estrace I've been even more of a cry baby. I see a commercial, I cry, I watch Extreme makeover Home addition, I cry, you get the picture. So Friday was our 10 day check at the clinic, first the couldn't find a vein, I cried. The the ultrasound: 9mm with three lines (whatever that means) H went in with me for the ultrasound and I'm paraiding around in only my bra and shirt when she asks: do you mind if I'm in here? I just laughed...I'm not a shy girl. So H and the technician and nurse are talking the ling about numbers and lines and I have no clue what they're talking about....this is my first time you know. So after all is said and done back to the waiting room where I ask H for a translation lol. The meeting with Dr. L is great he said "not only do your have a Beautiful womb but you have a wonderful lining too." So Monday the 30 is transfer day. Woot woot! I got to meet with another Dr. to learn how to give myself the progesteron in oil shots. I find this a little difficult, not the needle part, the seeing my butt around my boobs part. So I have to do it one handed because I need one hand to squish in my boob and move it out of the way. I'm also on Doxocylin now too. So after we leave the big city I took H down to the "cottage art studio" where I paint and show my art. Then we get back to my house and OMG I walk in my apartment and there are big gaping holes where the windows and slider used to be. Aparantly they are giving mew new windows but the just took all the old ones and frames out then left. I was freaking out (and crying) I've got three cats and one of them is just a baby (was born 8 weeks ago) So then H tries to do some organizing of my place but every time she touched something I practically freak (I'm a little hormoned out at the moment) So then she accidently see's part of this gift/ surprise I had bought for her, so while balling my eyes out I show it to her. Its a sticker/scrap book for mommy's to be to detail the pregnancy and stuff leading up to baby. (like a baby book but for the pregnancy) I thought it would be a great gift for her and I to fill in together. This way she has a "rememberence" to know what its like to be pregnant to term. Anyways. I'm so this really happening? Monday, Wow. As of Monday I'll be PUPO. All I can say is: WOW. (damn I'm crying again)


  1. What a sweet and thoughtful gift for H and you are such a kind person to think of that and want to record and share all of the details with her.

    If your lining is 9mm with a triple stripe that's great and I will cross my fingers for you that on Monday, they all start snuggling in for the 9 month journey :)


  2. crying!!!
    thankful...We'll talk after they call us with the timexoxoxoxoxooxoxooxoxooxoxoxoxoxooxoxoH.
    ps. I can't even watch extreme makeover home edition- me & G banned it cause we always bawl!!! He's a cry baby too, but don't let him know I told you ;)

  3. the trick to self PIO.
    Permanent marker. Circle the target area ON BOTH SIDES ( trade off sides, left one day right the other). Then lay down flat on your couch/bed/whatever. Slightly warm the oil, ( an armpit works well) and slightly warm your target area ( heating pad) then, while you're laying on your side/belly, your boob will be out of the way, your target is easy to see ( seriously, when you get all twisted around it's hard to find just where that ideal area is!) and you can easily poke/inject. Be sure to rub the area firmly, and with heat if possible, after the injection so that you don't form knots ( you probably will form some knots, but this will help)
    Good luck and congrats on your transfer!

  4. Good luck on the transfer tommmorrow!

    The hormonal mess your in is just the beginning, just wait till your preggers!!!

    Sharing-A-Dream Accomplished

  5. Wishing you all the best tomorrow with the transfer! I am so impressed about doing the PIO by yourself - thats awesome. Heat or ice before? Hmmmmm. I always said ice. Anyway, tomorrow you will officially be PUPO. YAY! Eats lots of protein and envision implantation.

  6. P.S. I posted this on H's site but just in case she doesn't see it, here are some ET tips:

    BTW, Dr. L can run behind sometimes so if you are very uncomfortable with a full bladder, ask that an u/s tech check the fullness of your bladder and let you know if you can pee some of it out rather than have to sit there in agony.

    P.S. With any IM shots, I always iced down before to numb the area and I found that did the trick for me although I never had to give these shots to myself.

    GL tomorrow!!

  7. Thinking of you all today!!
