Busy, Busy Day

I was able to get some sleep this morning after being awake from 4-7am.  My hormones are still all out of whack and I'm having terrible hot flashes while I'm sleeping.  I went back to bed and got up at 9am and got ready from there.  It was nice to put on pretty clothes and have washed hair.

I made a "To Do" list for the day.  It was pretty long.
This was my work space.  Dad's lent me his laptop for the time being.  I'm tired of laying in bed all day.  This was a change of scenery.

My List of things "To Do"
 It's amazing how busy I was today.  I took it easy, but I'm just exhausted!  I've been listening to music all day which always helps.  I was able to cross a lot off the list, but it will take some time.  I've had many "thank you" notes to write.

Rebecca visited with me today.  She brought me lunch and the beautiful flowers pictured below.  I was able to talk with her about my journey and how God has been ever present.  She has her own powerful testimony as well.  Right now, it's just good for me to be around positive people.  It's good for me to share what God is doing in my life, as well as my life with B.

I drove to the grocery store with B for the first time in 10 days.  I think I may be able to drive myself to work tomorrow.  I haven't had pain medicine in days, but my mind is ever foggy/clouded/confused.  I'm sure it will just take time to feel completely like me; however, I was kinda crazy anyways!
My beautiful flowers from Rebecca
I called ART today and have my appointment scheduled with Dr. Allemand for July 10 at 9am.  Of course, B is going to be out of town.  I'm working on finding a buddy to go to the appointment with me.  Going to this type of appointment by yourself isn't a good idea.  It's always better to have two sets of ears listening.  At this appointment we'll be talking about the FET. 

Thank you for the continued support; I need it.


  1. I agree on the two sets of ears! It always helps when there is someone there with me, too. Glad each day getting a little easier for you.

  2. Very pretty flowers, you have some wonderful friends. Keeping my fingers crossed on your appointment next week. Hoping you get the go ahead on FET!

    1. You're one of those wonderful friends! =) So glad to be sharing this journey with you.

  3. It's so wonderful to see you feeling better and almost like your old self again! I can't wait to hear about your appointment!!!!

    I'm sorry that I am unfamiliar with the IVF process but I did have a question, if it's okay to ask? You won't run the risk of OHSS when they do the transfer, right? I wasn't sure how many hormones you have to have in order to complete the transfer.

    1. OHSS was due to the Egg Retrieval Process. Doing the FET will be much easier on my body. There is no more risk for OHSS unless I ever go through the IVF and ER process again. I've contemplated being an egg donor someday when I'm finished having children of my own.

  4. I'm pretty sure I can go with you to the appointment if you want me to?


Thank you for visiting my blog! I appreciate your comments and support on our journey.

As for me, I will always have hope; I will praise you more and more.
