How come rent day happens so fast?
I got the mail today and guess what. I got a cheque from revenue Canada for $450. They audited my tax return from 2008's medical receipts. I sent everything in and they screwed it up. So I sent it in again and today of all days I get the extra $$$ back that they owed me. Perfect timing since its rent day and we were broke. I opened the letter and instantly felt blessed.
Its good to be broke, actually saves us money :lol: I made bread with stuff on hand yesterday, made dinner with stuff on hand the past few days too. We had salad from our garden.
I'm on day 4 of Weight Watchers. I'm so happy to be doing it. I can't wait to weigh myself next time i'm at mom's house. I should be going up in a few weeks. We cashed in some airmiles for gas coupons.
i'm very proud to report that i'm STILL on weight watchers! I've been doing really well with my prenats and asprin too. I even joined my dh on a few jogs!
I`m babysitting today. I walked them to Safeway and ordered my Synarel which is a nasal spray that I will start to use this sunday. It is the next step in my IVF cycle.
I went to my councillor therapist yesterday and told her how i`m happy to try this cycle, and also that it will bring me some relief and closure to move on if it doesnt work. She asked me if i think it will work. I said i`ve had SO many times where my hopes were up and then crashed to the ground that its hard to know anything else. She said it would be good to try and think of it working, it will help things in the long run. I know she`s right.
Tomorrow i`m taking the ferry over to Victoria with my oldest dsd and bringing her a handmedown futon for her appartment. I`ll have a visit with her and her roommate and then i`m going to see my bff an hour north. I havn`t seen her in over a year. Cant wait to walk around downtown and see the sights.
Its day 4 of the Synarel. WOW, thats awesome. Time is flying. DH and I were going over our plans for the next few weeks, good thing. DH's brother is flying into Seattle with his wife Aug 9th and we planned to meet them there for one night. BUT I think that will be during U/S time. Maybe we will have to just wait until the day to see if I have to go into the RE. Maybe go for the day?
Had a nice time on the island. Good talks with my bff. Nice to see her kids too. We spent two days at the beach, one lake and once at the ocean. I actually got a tan! Its cool and cloudy here today. Looks like rain possibly. That will be good for the lawn and garden. She gave me a scale but i'm scared to step foot on it. Maybe tomorrow. I'll really gauge my weight from my moms scale since thats the only one i've used the past 9 months. hmmmm 9 months, hopefully that will be used alot in conversation soon :)
I'm excited. A new begining is about to happen for me. Either my IVF will work, or i'll start my journey to living life to the fullest with what I have.
Yet again i've been lapped twice. It makes me realize that my situation is not normal. Its the fertile myrtles that are 'normal'.
Having a nice dinner party tonight. Two couples are coming over. My friends are celebrating their 40th anniversary! Tonight's menu is double stuffed potatoes, homegrown green beans and pork tenderloin done on the bbq with cherry wood smoke. Maybe i'll add some zuchinni to that. I made a double lemon cheesecake too.
Gotta tidy up the deck as its nice, maybe we can sit outside tonight :)
AF is here (kindof) and I have my first u/s and b/w this SUNDAY!!!! I'm so excited. I'm driving home tomorrow which will be about 11-12 hours straight driving and then I go in for 8am. Glad there is a schedule now to follow and no more guessing.
So far barely any cramps at all. Normally I have severe af cramping. I guess the bcp helped this month with that and also the synarel? So far anyways. I hope i'm not in too much pain tomorrow on the long drive. I usually have to take prescrip strength aleve 1100mg to get relief on the bad days but i'm not going to take anything this month except for some tylenol. Grin and bear it right?
Yea i'm getting so excited.
almost ruined my day.
Thats what i've named my cyst... my little friend. She is always there just hiding out in my pelvis. Every new RE I meet has a different opinion on it, don't touch it, drain it, remove it...
I had a moment of panic rush over me when a new RE did my baseline u/s today and said "we may have to delay treatment due to your cyst".... NO NO NO NO NO.
It has grown but not significantly to just under 4cm.
I immediately tell him that 'my little friend' has been there ever since we started ttc over 4 years ago and it has been decided to leave it alone and keep ttc. Fortunately he spent a few min going over my entire chart, reading lots of different things and then asked me what my RE said about it and then says ok we can continue. I think I held my breath the entire time he was going over my chart.
DH and I are going to watch the dvd again tonight and he will give me the shot. I'm on 150 of Repronex which is the same doseage I was on for my last superov that got me 3-4 follies. There were probably 5 more between 10 and 15 though so hopefully with the Synarel I will get a fair amount of eggies.
Today the RE measured 7 'tiny' follies and my E2 was 88.
HERE WE GO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I had my u/s. I have three follies average of 12. three more around 10. The RE said I probably need 'more juice'. I agree. I hope I get to double my doseage. I find out at 12:30 when my labs are in.
I got my lab results and the RE was 'pleased' with the results. My E2 was over 2000 so I am to stay on the same meds. I go tomorrow for a repeat u/s and b/w.
I have to be honest. The thought crossed my mind... maybe I could just up my dose myself... don't worry I didn't. I know that with my luck i'd get ohss really bad or something. I had some 'sensations' 'fullness' last night and that reassured me to relax and let my body do some more work these two days. I hope the small follies start to grow or it looks like i'll only have three possible follies.
Its Trigger night tonight for me :) My E2 jumped up to 3785 today so this is it. I'm at home relaxing for now. I ordered my ovridel yesterday and was told I could pick it up after noon. Well they ordered me Repronex and said oops it won't come in till tomorrow. I didn't freak as I know in the end I will get what I need... they called around and found a pharmacy by my RE's office (had I known I was two blocks away from there today and its a 45 min drive)
Anyways 10 min later the pharmacy called and said they actually ARE getting it in probably in two hours time so I'm relaxing at home avoiding the rush hour traffic and waiting for the nurse to call me with my ER instructions. It is scheduled for Saturday at 8:30am.
My acupuncture dr was so cute, giving me 'mild crap' for not sticking to a healthy diet which means no wheat, dairy or sugar, no bbq, no roasting or baking, only boiled and steamed food. Yum :lol: Of course everything at home contains the bad list. Guess I need to make myself a stirfry tonight because the menu is set for chicken alfredo. Maybe one more night won't hurt too bad. :lol:
ps, for follies I have some measuring 21.5, 20, 19, 16, 3x15 and a few more around 12-14. By the time of ER I should have a fair amount to choose from :)
I'll be cheering you on and thinking of you in the next couple of days especially. :goodluck:
Thank you so much my friend!

I've felt very tired the past week and he's insisting after my shots that 'im done for the night' tucking me in around 8pm and its been good since its been alot of early mornings to drive into town.
My belly feels very full. I find myself moving slower and 'protecting' myself. I feel pretty good.
