These weren’t the kind of shots I was talking about

by statia on March 6, 2006

Last night was the first night I didn’t sweat on our new bed. Either I passed out too hard, or I really didn’t sweat. We ended up getting a CoolMax mattress cover for the mack daddy bed last week, and I guess it’s working. The real test will happen over the next week while I’m thrown into chemical menopause.

Baseline ultrasound today, along with estrodial level at less than 20 has given us official clear for take off tomorrow. If you could send the meester your addresses so that he has a few places to escape to while I have some mild moodswings go crazy, he’d appreciate it.

We’ve stocked up on extra cheese and a 5lb bag of gummy bears from costco. There’s no other time that I’d actually be able to justify buying a 5 pound bag of gummy bears than an upcoming IVF cycle.

Let the bruising begin.

He knows where we live… I promise not to lose him to (unless you want me to). ;-p GOOD LUCK!

Gummy bears? Holy crap. I haven’t had those — let alone thought about them — for years. That’s awesome!

Good luck to you. (I hope that you have NO bruising.)

Yay, you’re off and running! The gummies sound awesome, and if your hubby feels like a road trip, let me know. He can head our way. :)

Best of everything to you both!!!
mmmm gummies…

Costco rules. Now you can sit back and let your doctor be in complete control of your cycle. Won’t that be fun?

Gummy bears? For practicing injections? For laying on your stomach after the injection to take away the ouchie?

Congrats on starting the cycle. It’s about time.

Wait! What if you get a bruise that looks like the Virgin Mary? You’ll have thousands of worshippers lined up outside your door. There goes the neighborhood…all for your little science experiment.

Have you thought about that? I didn’t think so.

At least you have your cheese.

donna March 7, 2006 at 5:38 am

Good luck! The cheese will help.

best of luck!

He’s welcome at our place too, though he’d probably have to unpack his way to the guest room…

Or hell, YOU could come, and give the poor man some peace and quiet at home.

Send him to Houston. Tell him we have Irn Bru and I have seasons one and two of Little Britain on DVD.

*ducking to escape the virtual beating you are giving me right now*

i hope that all goes well for you!

5lbs of gummy bears are absolutely CRITICAL for a successful IVF cycle…I am sure of it.

Best of luck! Tell the meester he’s always welcome at our place once heavy metallic objects start getting hurled around your house!

The Meeeester March 7, 2006 at 9:54 am

Amy, I will be on the next flight out. You are teh best!

Stephanie March 7, 2006 at 11:07 am

wow, sounds like you are having a rock out time. as for the meester, he will have to suck it up and take the abuse….Mr. M can give him lessons.

Manuela March 7, 2006 at 2:45 pm

Good luck, girl… I’m just a couple weeks behind you!

P. March 8, 2006 at 10:46 am

Best of luck to you!

Linda March 9, 2006 at 3:07 pm

OMG, you just solved a mystery for me. When I was going through my cycle…I was always freezing when I went to bed (our house is cold) but in the middle of the night I would constantly wake up DRENCHED in sweat. D’oh! It was the hormones. I didn’t even think of that. God am I blonde!
