Sing it, Gene!

...
Did you ever see the movie "Sleep;less in S;eattle"? Okay, yeah, total gooey chick flick. Every once in a while I get a kick out of seeing that movie. T.om H.anks' character and his kid live on a cool houseboat in Seattle. Tom's wife died and after a year or two, he begins trying to date again. Eventually his adorable kid sets him up with the adorable M.eg R.yan. Anyway, Tom goes on his first date since losing his wife. The woman (not Meg) was....well...not right for him. As accompaniment to the scene after the date, they played the original G.ene A.utry version of "B.ack in the S;addle Again." It was supposed to signal Tom getting his groove back, if you know what I mean.

This morning I went to the outside monitoring clinic for an U/S and E2 level. This afternoon my IVF coordinator called. Here are my stats:

Lining: thin
Ovaries: clear
E2: 30 (nice and low)

Back on BCPs today. Start Lupron Saturday. Delestrogen should start sometime during the week of June 15.

If all goes well (whispering prayers, holding my breath and knocking and wood), our new FET transfer date will be July 2nd or July 3rd.

As the IVF coordinator gave me my orders, I heard G.ene A.utry in my head, singing "B.ack in the S.addle Again." It sounded wonderful.

That would be a very nice way to spend the long weekend!!! Away with you hubby, preparing for your new tenant!!! Fingers crossed and prayers sent for you!!!
Thank you so much for you comment on my blog. I am so glad you forewarned me about how he will look, the tubes, breathing machines, bloating---I was SO not prepared for any of that. Now I know a little bit more of what to expect. I am so glad you told me they are "generous" with keeping him out of pain!!! I can't even let my mind go there.
Unfortunately, the Dr wouldn't do a U/S today. She said it is probably too early!! :( I go back in exactly a week!!!!

So glad you're back in the saddle again! It always feels better to be working towards something, rather than waiting, doesn't it?

Holy cow, that went fast! I'm glad to hear that things are moving along again. Your FET will be here before you know it!
