Lots of good news today.

I had my 2nd SHG this morning...was kinda nervous going into it.  Not sure why...I guess this polyp has been weighing heavily on my mind.  Jill got me all situated on the table, Dr. Mark came in and in less than 10 minutes I was done.



He said it likely went away during my last cycle. 

Jill talked to "Sarah" afterwards and we have our transfer date set--OCTOBER 20, 2010!!!

Jill again mentioned the parenting agreement that we still needed to sign...that and a bunch of other stuff my husband and I had to sign.  We met Steve and Sarah at the bank's office tonight and had EVERYTHING notarized.  We are all legal and official on everything now!!!

So so so so excited!

No title to this post....just an update that my 2nd SHG is tomorrow.  A little nervous that damn polyp is still going to cause an issue.

Guess we'll see....

And here we go....

Jill is on vacation this week, so I talked to Sue (who was equally as nice).  Told her the good news about the cycle starting...

My next steps:

Day 3 lab draw for hormone levels--8/21 @ 10:45 am

2nd opinion SHG scheduled for 8/31 @ 7:30 am at RE's office.

Day 21 injections training--9/9 @ 9:30 am at RE's office (with husband so he can learn how to give me injections).

Depending on what SHG "says"....tentative transfer date is October 13th!!!

She's here.

Oh boy.  I'm in for it.

She made it.  Not sure what took her so dang long, but Aunt Flo is here and has released her fury on me and my household.

Calling Jill tomorrow--have to get hormone check on day 3...which puts me at Saturday (because they would count today as day 1).  Hope the lab is open on Saturday!

ug. Tylenol...help me out.  please.

Aunt Flo-where you be, girl?

She never showed.  Not even a glimpse.  WTF.

I was doing so good! Period's right on schedule--then, the one where it counted I got nothin'.  So, I talked to Jill on Monday and she called in Provera for me.  I have to take it for 10 days, then I should get a period within 2 weeks.

More waiting.  Lovely.

I also talked to "Steve" the other day about the polyp.  Basically, they want a 2nd opinion, which I totally understand and agree with.  So, when I go to the clinic for my next ultrasound, they're going to check that out too. Who knows, maybe it's gone...maybe it's smaller...and then we'll make a decision on what to do.

Do I want to get it out?  Only if I absolutely have to--it's an outpatient surgery, so I'd be out of commission for at least a day--not something I have time to deal with, but can make it work.

So, we'll see...

Oh, and I've got a booger of a cold right now.  Me and the 3 littles.  So much fun.

So we hit the 12 week mark on August 1st.  YIPPEE!!  All systems go.

Not so much.  Nothing huge, but Aunt Flo hasn't come.  The ONE cycle that really could count for something and she's not showing her face.  If I counted right, I should have gotten her on the 4th...it's now the 6th and nothing.

So, I will give it until Monday--if she doesn't show her face, I'm calling Jill--she can put me on a med to make me have it.

Just annoying.

Other than that, all is good.

Oh, I don't think I wrote about this.  We were almost going to be on TV!!  I found a post on a message board from a woman who's the casting director with High Noon Entertainment (Cake Boss, House Hunters, etc..).  They are doing a show on alternate fertility/family things.  We corresponded and we were just a little too late in our "entry"...but we're next in line.  So, if something falls through with any of the couples, we may be in!
