At Last

I dragged out my archaic 7 year old laptop and bought a wireless internet adapter so that I could use it while my other laptop is in the shop. The giant,heavy old laptop is grumbly and slow and kept thinking the date was 2002. The computer repair guy seemed nice enough but was the most ineffective businessman I ever met. He had my computer for 3 days and had not yet been able to diagnose it, although he replaced the power input jack. That apparently wasn't the problem. Could be the battery. Could be the mother board. He didn't have the parts or accessories to test it. His shop was an unkempt disaster area. He was slow about doing everything and never called when he said he would. I finally got fed up and went over there and picked my computer up. Three days with no diagnosis is too long.

Besides, I have other things to focus on now. Like getting ready for my FET next week!

As it turns out, I ended up with Dr. Creepy this morning doing my U/S to check my lining (please, God, let it be my last U/S at the OMC). Oh yeah, Dr. Creepy strolled into the room and I thought, "Whatever" and sure enough, he indicated that I should slide down the table and assume the position, whereupon he lifted the pink paper drape TWICE to have a gander before sitting down and picking up the wand. I almost wanted to say something.....like, "Worried I forgot to take my panties off?" or "Yep, doc, it's a vagina all right."

As it turned out, my lining is up to a fabulous 9.6 mm. The Clinic gave me new med instructions, including when to begin taking the progesterone suppositories. Tomorrow is my final Lupron shot. We'll have to head out of town on Tuesday. They will thaw the embies on Wednesday and depending on how they look once thawed, they will transfer the same day, or they will be cultured overnight and transferred Thursday. Then we'll hang out in a hotel room for 3 days (oh yeah, EB, it will be a nice hotel room, because my husband insists if he has to be cooped up that long, he wants it to be a nice place).

I don't know what will happen. The chips will fall where they will fall. I just want a shot at this. A chance to see whether it can work. Get these embies into the nest and let God and nature take their course. Believe it or not, I'm actually looking forward to the 2ww.

I agree about the hotel room, you won't remember the bill as much as you'll remember and icky stay! And this could be the beginning of your bab(ies) life, it shouldn't be in some dive. My lining is at 9 too, and I just started my lovely PIO shots. Is your transfer supposed to be Wednesday? Can't wait to hear how it goes - and it'll go this time!

Exciting! And how nice to settle in for your bed-rest with your husband in a swank room! Room service! Pay-per-view! Fresh towels twice a day!

My husband will probably get take-out, but otherwise I'm on my own...

I'm so excited for you.

Oh yay....this is all very good news! Except of course for Dr. Creepy. But aw, forget him. He's an idiot and you more important things to think about. :)

Dr Creepy sounds just disgusting, every time you write about him I cringe for you, I hope you never have to deal with him ever again.

Best of luck for your transfer, I'll be sure to send loads of positive sticky vibes the way of you and your frosties.
