Last weekend we painted almost our entire upstairs while Macy spent the day camping with my parents. At first I didn't like it at all but it is growing on me. It was supposed to be pumpkin with espresso accents; and turned out looking like Halloween so I eliminated all of our dark bronze hardware, wall coverings, etc. and replaced everything with cream, khaki, and brushed nickel. And it looks a lot LESS Halloween-y in here. Which is good.
One thing that Macy has started doing that is very cute and silly is whenever she is doing something she is not suppose to be doing (like walking around on the couch); she quickly runs up to me and gives me a kiss when I am mid-sentence in telling her not to do it. hehehehe. She's so funny. It's like she is trying to silence me with kisses. :)
IVF update: I did start my cycle this week so we are doing all of our pre-testing right now. I did my bloodwork yesterday, and Adam is in the morning. I scheduled my sonohystagram (sp?) and mock embryo transfer for next week Thursday. They are both required tests, and the SHG is where they put water into your uterus and do an ultrasound to check to make sure you don't have any cysts, or anything crazy going on in there that would prevent you from getting pregnant. The mock embryo transfer is so they can measure to know how far the catheter needs to go for the real one.
I will be calling the pharmacy this week to get everything aligned for all of my IVF meds, and to make sure they are here in time. I am planning on having them about a week before I start injecting them. The first med is Lupron. You start that on day 21 of your cycle ( FYI: IVF is a 2 month or 2 cycle process). So for me that is August 7th (my parent's anniversary). Lupron shuts down your ovaries and makes it so they are completely controlled by medication, and not your body (it is a stomach injection in the evening).
After 10 to 14 days on Lupron I should start my menstrual cycle. At that time I'll get a baseline ultrasound then start the FSH (follicle stimulating hormones plus HMG for 2 days) in addition to the Lupron. Once this is started (also both by stomach injection in the evening) an ultrasound and morning bloodwork (estradriols) are done every other day for 2 weeks to check follicle growth. If all goes well next step is the egg retrieval which should land in early September.
Our ducks are finally in a row! Let's just hope they stay that way!
