Personally, I find that it’s easier to offer prayers and support to someone when I have a face to go with a name. For that reason, I’m coming out of my blog closet. Its something I’ve thought about often and at this big turning point in our lives, I’m ready. So, this is me (and the hubs)…
*I'm not even going to lie. This is the most real picture of me! I contemplated posting a picture of the hubs and I on formal night on our cruise in January but its really not a true representation of me. I'm a pretty plain Jane sort. I rarely wear make up and I'm usually rockin' a pony tail so the formal pic of me (although possibly a better pic) is not really me but this is pretty close.*
Although, I am very grateful for the opportunity we have to pursue IVF much sooner than we had imagined (thanks to grandma,) I’m approaching this very guarded. I hope from the depths of my being that this works but I know that it doesn’t always work (even if the hubs “has a good feeling about it.”) I will be asking for many prayers and positive thoughts to be sent my way over the next few weeks. I hope that having a face to go with the name/blog helps.
Tonight will be my last night of BCPs and my fifth night of Lup.ron. I am shocked that the Lup.ron is so easy. This is the first med that I haven't had to mix or change needles for. It's awesome! The needle is even smaller than I'm used to and the meds don't burn one bit. I actually don't really feel much of the injection one bit. Unfortunately, this is just the beginning of the IVF injections and the evil Brav.elle burn will be here before I know it. I'm just enjoying this while I can.
So far, the only side effect I've experienced are acne break outs and headaches. I'm not really sure if its the BCPs or the Lup.ron but I don't like it. I'm dealing with it but I would much rather do without it.
In honor of my last BCP here is my med protocol pic...

This is really happening!!!
On a lighter note, this weekend was awesome! I loved SATC2 even more than I thought I would. My birthday was amazing (thanks for all the birthday wishes!!!) and the BBQ turned out great too! It's a been a whirlwind weekend.
This week I will getting together with three fellow bloggers/tweeps! I'll be meeting Holly (@ready2Bmom,) Erin (@WannaBeMom,) and Tracy (@kittygirltx.) I have to admit, I'm pretty nervous. I feel like its a blind date. The suspense leading up to the lunch is the worst. I know once we're all there and chatting, we will never want to stop. Until then, I'm so nervous and excited! I can't wait!!!
I just want to say, I think of so many of you on a daily basis and I hope you know that I’m sending my own thoughts, prayers and positive vibes your way! Thank you so much for all the support you provide me with.
