It’s Thursday, although it’s felt like a Saturday all day, and I’ve been doing my best to occupy myself while trying to remain in a (mostly) horizontal position. Here’s a little catch-up:
∞ There’s no such thing as TMI on in infertility blog, right? Good, because I finally pooped today! And without all of your helpful suggestions, mostly because I couldn’t convince Hubby to go out and procure a stockpile of prunes and fiber supplements for me. But I will be keeping all of them in mind for the future (pregnant or not).
∞ I was able to sit down and write a letter to someone I was good friends with in college and, uh…not so much anymore. I meant to devote a whole post to this, and maybe I will at some point. Suffice it to say she sent me a letter over a month ago (I won’t even go into why it was a hand-written letter and not a more modern method of communication here…) and it has taken me this long and some coaching from my therapist to finally respond. So check that off the to-do/worry list.
∞ My family gets here tomorrow! Of course, I have to get through a whole day of work first, but I am super excited!
∞ I remembered to call in a refill for my PIO prescription, which should arrive in plenty of time. (2cc injections suck, y’all.)
∞ My friend Sincerity talked me into watching the show The Americans, and so far I’ve watched the first two episodes. I love Keri Russell, and I just might be hooked.
∞ As I said, back to work tomorrow, and it’s a busy, busy day. At least it should go fast, which will get me that much closer to picking up my family at the airport. Have I mentioned I’m excited!?
And with that in mind, I should mention that I’ll be MIA for about a week, which will take us right up to testing day. Hubby and I have arranged for the clinic to hold off on calling us with the results of the beta until after my family is securely dropped at the airport, at which point we’ll call them. I just can’t stand the thought of bad news ruining my last day with my sister, niece, and dad. And if it’s good news? They’ll hear about it soon enough.
I so appreciate all of your well-wishes and positive vibes flowing in my direction. I have to say, I don’t feel any different than I did yesterday morning, but that doesn’t mean anything, right? I really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really hope this works! (Yes, 11 really’s worth.)
