Today I got a fun new toy! I was going to the Dollar Tree to stock up on my $1 Pregnancy tests (they really do work!) and I passed by the Goodwill. Sitting outside there was a bicycle that jumped right out at me. I pulled the car over and went over for a closer look. It was love at first site – and with the price tag of $30.06 I could NOT pass it up. I have been looking at getting a “Beach cruiser” type bike so this was PERFECT and in GREAT condition. Look at that cute color and those white wall tires - **sigh** love it!

IVF Update: Stick a fork in me
The exciting news of the day is that I am done! Meaning that my follicles are where they need to be. What does that mean? I take my HCG shot in my ass tonight and on Wednesday at 6:30am I go in for surgery to have my eggs aspirated! WHOO-HOO! So after 6 days in a row at the Doctor I get a one day break! Here were my stats the last few days:

**Sunday: Estrogen 1838. Left Ovary – 16mm, 14mm, 13mm and 3 other small ones. Right Ovary – 15mm, 14mm, 14mm 5 smaller ones. 5 units Lupron twice a day, 225 Gonal F, 1Menapur
**Monday: Estrogen 2500. Left Ovary – 19mm, 18mm, 15mm and 3 other small ones. Right Ovary – 18mm, 17mm, 17mm, 14mm, 13mm and 3 smaller ones, Lupron once this morning. HCG Shot at 8pm tonight

We are so close.. Now the anticipation starts, how many eggs will they get, how many will fertilize, how many will make it to transfer day – lots of what ifs from here on out – But all things to pray for. So excited to get the answers to all the above questions! Are you visual and need a timeline?

Here is mine:
Monday (today) HCG shot
Wed – eggs aspirated and find out how many
Thurs – Find out how many eggs fertilized
Friday – check on status of fertilized eggs and determine3 or 5 day transfer
Sat OR Mon – Transfer 3 Embryos back to their home! 2 weeks later – pregnancy test!

Thanks for reading!!!!!
