Drive by Update

Embryos are now in NJ!!!! :) Got the package from the clinic with everything I need to get signed and testing to be done. Tom was a bit upset that he still has testing to do. The nurse said it's because we are sexually active. I felt like telling her "well no not really. Seeing since all the fertility madness we've really not at all!" But I didn't. I stopped myself. lol

So I have my OB appt next Thursday, March 3rd and I'll have my cultures and physical done. No pap needed as I got it last July and it's still good she said. I will also need a Mammo. I'm NOT happy about that. I know I'm bad at 44 years old and never having one, but my MD clinic never enforced it, but they do. So I'm going to have to toughen up and just get it done. Hopefully nothing is found. Tom and I will go over to Lapcorp and get our bloodword out of the way while we're in that area and he's with me. All he has to do is give blood and piss in a cup. NICCCCE!

With that said, I would have to say that our FET will probably now happen in May or June. May being on BCP and FET in June. Trying to make it happen in April is unrealistic. Who knows at this point. I really want to get to it, but money wise we don't have it. I need to at least have a cc to use at this point. Right now we are tight with not much on cc to spare. Again, I'm ok with this. I was happy to see I lost 3 more lbs this morning, so I know it will be for the best when we do our FET. 12lbs total!!

I will keep you all posted as always!

God Bless.

Can I get a "Alleluia"???? Well of course I can!!!!

My birthday wish is here. Yesterday was the day the word came from our donor. Those beautiful words that filled my heart with joy, at a great time too, 2 days away from my Birthday!! Those reassuring words that I longed to hear for what seems an eternity. Donor; "Well this is it. The embryos are yours!! All the necessary paperwork is done on our end! You can call the clinic in TX and have them shipped to NJ!"

WOW what a feeling! 4 Beautiful embryos for my 44th Birthday! We really need to do our FET in April being it's the 4th month right? It just feels right. We will try our best!

So here's the plan. I called the clinic today. Monday I will receive a call from Sarah who takes care of this sort of thing. For about $350 or so I will have my babies shipped to our clinic in NJ! Once they are there, I will call my nurse and discuss our FET plans! Can you believe I'm finally here?? I can't. It's not real to me. I've been waiting for so long for something to happen after our last IVF attempt and our moment is here!

I pray to the Lord that these beautiful, precious embryos are my path to motherhood. Something I've wanted for way too long. Please God, hear my hearts desires. Help one (or two) of these precious gifts become my child on earth for me to love.

In Jesus' name. AMEN.

God Bless.

I will keep you all posted!

Well we're in limbo. My donor has to fill out these forms from the TX clinic where the embryo's are; sign, notarize & mail back. She's waiting for them. This clinic as she said seems to be very laid back. They take their time with sending paperwork.

I hope this is resolved by the end of this month at least. This way I can have the embryo's shipped to NJ and get some kind of idea of when we'll do our FET.

In a way things happen for a reason. I need to stay on this path of losing weight. Today is Day 6 of Detox week and I must say, it was a rough start (first 3 days) but once I could add some lean meat on Day 4 I started feeling better. Still had headaches but today is a much better day. This Detox week thing really does what it says. Once you get through it you really don't crave all the junk you use to eat. It makes you embark on the next journey. Keeping a diet going! I told Tom (DH) that I want to continue eating veggies like I am now and eating our big bowl of salad with lean meat everyday till the end of February and see how much weight we lose. I think it will be great to do it! Don't get me wrong, my birthday is on the 19th and WE WILL be going to dinner at Outbacks to celebrate!!! I don't think we've been there in a year :-0 !! It's time! :)
