Day 31 – Excited

Today’s intention is to take care of myself.

Today, I feel excited. Tomorrow, hubby, a great friend, and I are driving down to visit my twin brother and his fiance. We will also get to spend time with my best friend and her wonderful girlfriend — I can’t wait! Everyone is running in a 5k mudrun, and I am the ‘official’ group photographer. On Sunday, we are heading to brunch to celebrate my BF’s birthday — yay! It will be a great weekend full of amazing people! I honestly can’t wait. Yay!

I also started my period today and will be heading to the RE tomorrow morning for blood work and an ultrasound. The Dr will check my hormone levels and make sure my ovaries are ready to begin producing eggs. She will use this information to make any final tweaks to my medication protocol and to make sure that we are indeed ready to get this baby-making party started. As we get closer to Injection-day, I am feeling more confident. I even dreamt about poking myself last night — it was a good dream, and I feel more prepared and calm.

I am grateful for the love and support from many amazing people — my friends and family, I couldn’t do this without all of you!; my awesome hubby; my Kahli-bear; my great doctors; health insurance; my health; my knowledge; acupuncture; and, IVF!

Question of the Day — What does your blog name mean?
My blog name simply states what I think will help us to have a baby — a lot of love mixed with plenty of hope = baby!

I love and accept myself!

  1. I don’t like DAY 4’s question wording – “Besides Mother’s Day, what is the toughest holiday for you as an infertile?” I think it puts too much an emphasis on infertility when it says, “as an infertile.” Tell me that this is not a normal use of the word…Wait, just wait, I’ve just read Elise’s post. Well put. I have to add that I think half of any battle is language. Infertility does not define a person!

    • Great sisters think alike :). I don’t think it’s a normal use of the word, and if it is, it’s not one in my vocab. I am going to adjust the wording of the question. In fact, I will make the adjustment to my original post — no need to keep negative language on my very happy and wonderful blog!

  2. Good thinking!
