Here is my guess at my upcoming FET cycle calendar. When I talked with the nurse a while back, she said the cycle would be about 42 days, but that sounded short to me. I reviewed my calendar from my prior FET and it was actually a 47 day cycle through transfer day. With that said, I am guessing transfer day to be on/around October 14th (Matthew was transferred October 12th). We shall see – I get the official calendar later this week.
Here is my nifty, difty spreadsheet that I’ve already started checking things off of (started BCP and baby aspirin an hour ago):
In other news, we had a busy, busy day! We had “Zoo Tunes” down at the zoo today for Matthew and he loved it! “Zoo Tunes” consists of singing songs, playing little instruments, petting the animals, etc. He loves, loves, loves to dance and a few times, he dropped his instrument and ran into the middle of the circle made up of small children and just broke out in dance while they all played their instruments. I don’t like to say that my kid is cute – but it was freaking adorable! I think he thought he was a rock star 😉 We went through the zoo then afterwards and the bald eagles terrified him but the red pandas made him giggle. It was fun!
I had a lot of things to do today in preparation for the car purchase, so that kept us on the road. All we have to do now is sign some docs at the bank and we’re all set. Our plan is coming together nicely! B and I are a good team when it comes to these types of things. We divide and conquer and get things done in half the time. I married a good one 🙂
Now that I’m in a cycle, I’ve decided that I need to respect my body and not cheat on the healthy lifestyle. It’s time to get control. I had a few (lot of) Oreos tonight as my last hurrah. I’m done being stupid about this.
My best friend is having her first baby on Thursday but goes into the hospital tomorrow for an induction. The reason for the induction is not my news to share, but before anyone gets all, “inductions are bad” on me (I think inductions are bad, for the most part), I will just say that there is a very good reason to get this baby delivered. She chose to go with my OB and he does not take these things lightly. I am so excited for her, I can hardly stand it. Both B and I are jumping out of our skin, we’re so psyched about this baby! I can’t wait to meet Baby Girl AKS on Thursday (or Friday, if she delivers late on Thursday)!
B reminded me today to keep on living and enjoying life during this cycle. I assured him that this time is different. It really does feel different. I am at such a great place right now, I can’t imagine letting this bring me down. Today, Matthew grabbed my face with both hands, pulled my face to his, and kissed me with so much love that I couldn’t let him go.
Yep – this time is VERY different.
