First u/s

Friday, October 02, 2009

The u/s went great- my uterus and both ovaries look perfect (gotta love a descriptive nurse practioner! haha!)!! The right one jumped right into view, but the left one was harder to find- it is more in the middle than on the left. In the process of finding the left one, I got to see my bowels, though (ooooOOOOO!!). So it was kind of neat to see them wiggling around. I certainly don't feel them wiggling!

I am good to go to start injections tomorrow- 125 units every night! I go back for bloodwork on Tuesday and another u/s on Thursday. Hopefully we can trigger on Saturday or Sunday since Mr. A skips town early the following Tuesday morning!!

The nurse said that the trigger shot can now be given in your stomach, so I think Mr. A is off the hook...

I am so excited about this cycle!!!

After my appointment, I had coffee with a friend I hadn't talked to in a while and her gorgeous 11-month old daughter who my friend and her hubby adopted last year. The little girl is so beautiful!!! And such a good baby- my friend and I talked for almost 2 hours at a coffee shop, and the little girl was awesome the whole time! I am so excited because my friend just moved closer, so now we can see each other way more often!! She is a miscarriage survivor and struggled with IF for 2 years before they adopted their daughter last year. She is so compassionate and sensitive to my struggle- I sure hope God blesses her extra special for her kindness!

I sure hope I can learn how to to do the shots :) Lord, please use this new medication to bless us with children!!!

I'm excited and hopeful for this new leg of the journey! Praying! (I don't know if you remember me telling you that I have always been drawn to pray for you and one IRL friend together...well, yesterday and today she & dh are meeting with some birthparents and if all goes well they will have a son via an open adoption! God's timing is rarely what we think it should be, but it is always right and amazing too!)

P.S. I sure hope my last comment wasn't insensitive (like a pg announcement)...I meant it to encourage and show God's answer to prayer. Okay, I'll close my mouth now!

This is very exciting! Praying for this cycle to be the one! So glad the Lord has brought such a compassionate friend closer to you. I found it so helpful and encouraging to get together with a friend who knew what I was going through in the midst of my cycles.
