A New Year and Another Step Forward

It is now 2015 and with much anticipation, the time for medication is upon me. I have been to see the IVF clinic and this week, I will be receiving my medication calendar, which will tell me when I will begin Lupron (to suppress my ovaries) and then estrogen (to build the lining of the uterus) and finally progesterone (to prepare for the actual transfer).

My intended parents have 2 frozen embryos in cryo-storage and when transfer day arrives, one will be thawed and transferred to me. Considering both embryos have received top grading from the embryologist, I think we have a very good chance of being successful on our first try! At this moment, I believe we are looking at a transfer in the first week of March, so if all goes according to plan, we should be looking at a due date of mid-November. It's so exciting to think of it that way!

In the meantime, I have lots going on in my own life. We have been waiting for almost a whole year, but we've finally sold our home and purchased a new one, so we will be moving while I'm doing my meds and finishing up just before transfer. I will be spending the two week wait unpacking boxes and setting up the new house. I do believe that is a good way to pass the time....

Now, if I could just get February to hurry up and fly on by!
