T-minus 16 days till transfer...and my belly is sore:)

Sorry for the long intermission in postings.  We have been on the transition path from Hugoton to Amarillo and now to our own home.  All the while I have been anticipating the implantation of the belly bean.  I'll update what I have been doing the last two weeks and let you know the schedule...

June 14th- Started Lupron injections in the tummy once a day.
June 24th- reduced Lupron from 10cc to 5cc and started estrogen support via Capsule(twice daily) and Vivelle patch every 3 days.  Also on a Vegetarian prenatal supplement, folate and Dha regimen.  My hair has grown an inch in a week!  Awesome!!!

I continue this routine until
July 7th- I will come off of the Lupron, stay on the estrogen and supplements and begin a progesterone regimen. (suppositories and lozenges).  Then on the twelfth I fly to LA to have my last ultrasound(I have had one every week to check my lining)...Then If all is okay..the 15th is BABY DAY!!!  I will rest in a luxurious hotel for two days with room service and books and pray that this belly bean holds on for the greatest ride ever.

Please pray for strength and hope for me and my family.  I began a full time job after being home for 7 years...My kids miss me already after only 1 month.  Pray for E & S (ip's names) that they will rest easy and trust that this time it's gonna work. 

Thanks for following.  I am so excited to share this with you!

Bring on the Lupron...and other various hormones:)

I realize it has been a month since I last posted, not because I forgot but really there has been no change in my status...Checking this, finalizing that.  But today things begin..REALLY this time!!!  I start injecting 10ccs of Lupron nightly into my stomach to ensure my uterus thickens adequately and I have scheduled sonos every week for a month to check the progress.  In the next few days I come off of the pill and start Estrogen and prenatals, to be followed with a veritable spattering of other hormones.  Cross your fingers that I don't go crazy....or should I say any more crazy!   E & S are very excited as they wait out the next month.  By this time 3 1/2 weeks from now I should be good and pregnant.  I will post pics when I can and maybe even a video of the shots:) 

Thanks for reading,
