Look what arrived last week! After all the stressing and sweating, we were able to schedule our transfer for mid/late November. YAY!!! I am so excited. Transferring in November will make it better for me nine months down the road, in case I get hired permanent full time.
So far I have done a few belly shots of Lupron (and not the fun kind of belly shots you had in college). Actually, they aren’t really bad at all and I can self-administer these ones. The only “bad” part is that Lupron can sometimes lead to bad headaches and can make you pretty bitchy and moody. So far that hasn’t been the case and it’s a good thing. I had one hell of a week last week, planning for my daughter’s 10th birthday party, preparing to be observed at work, and then dealing with issues surrounding my husband being in a car accident (he was fine, our car was not).
If there was a time to not lose it emotionally it should’ve been yesterday when I was at a car dealership for almost four hours, with three kids and the underlying fear of being late for work. Luckily my kids had great behavior because on meds, my patience is usually shot.
The next few weeks will be more meds, blood draws, and getting ready for the embryo transfer.
