Working and Getting Ready

...
Yesterday and today have been HOT. Yesterday morning I started early - all I did was go in the yard with the dogs and next thing I knew I had a shovel in hand and was digging up weeds, turning and amending soil, building up a small rock retaining wall (think, 2 feet square), nurturing my garden, setting a couple brick pavers and watering all my plants....good grief! Sometimes I don't consciously decide what I'm about to do, I just suddenly find myself doing it! (If it weren't for these drugs I'm on, I'd prefer to find myself sipping a Mojito in the shade!).

No big news here. I started Delestrogen shots a couple days ago. My DH's technique led to a little argument. I started it, saying, "God, man, get a grip!" I don't recommend arguing when someone is standing over you with a sharp instrument in their hand, but it couldn't be helped. We got through it okay. Whew!

I owe a special thanks to musicmakermomma who previously recommended to me a pre-icing, post-heating technique to help reduce discomfort. It worked great!

I have an appointment at the dreaded OMC on Tuesday to check my lining and E2. Hope, pray and wish on a star that my numbers are okay this time. The good news is that when I made the appointment, the girl casually mentioned which doc would be doing the U/S. And it's not Dr. Creepy! Yayyyy! It's "the tall one" (in her words), who happens to be the guy who stands, watches the monitor and barely glances for the target.

If the results from Tuesday's appointment are good, then I think we are good to go and will have no further appointments until the transfer.

I agree with your advice about how to treat the person who is about to stick a sharp object in your butt.... be nice! I recall one particularly irritable IVF when I seemed to pick a fight before every injection... it was a bad plan, nuff said.

Fingers still crossed for your cycle.

yay!

oh and I have a question....

I didn't cage my tomatoes before I planted them and now one of them is HUGE. Do you know if you can cage them after they are big? Are cages open ended so you can close them around the tomato? Yes yes I will go to Home Depot this weekend, but I thought I'd ask. :P

Yay for your DH getting the shot done! And I'm glad my ice/heat plan worked for you too. I am putting off (momentarily) my lupron shot - do NOT want to get up and stab myself...sigh.

You are on your way! And avoiding Dr. Creepy sounds like the best plan from here on out - maybe at some point you should let them know that it's weird...
