All the Sun For You

A mom, two boys, a husband, and a whole lot of adventure!

One More


One more lupron shot before we move on to bigger and better things (PIO shots on Monday).  I will not miss you, Lupron… you big, fat cow!

I have an ultrasound and blood work tomorrow to see how I’m doing.  I’m fully expecting them to put me on estrace tablets that go in parts that make me shudder.  As Belle put it so appropriately today, I am gearing up for having “smurf-colored” lady parts here soon.  Fantastic!

This FET cycle has been a breeze so far.  I honestly forget about it most days and need reminders on my phone to ensure I get my shots and take my meds.  This is a good thing!  I do fully expect to feel emotionally vested, though, once those embryos are put back where they belong next Friday.

I’m assuming this won’t work for us (we never get lucky and fall on the good side of the odds – and this procedure has a 40% success rate), but I sure hope it does!  I am trying to remain positive because you never know.  It has to work for someone, right?  Would be nice if it’s us this time …  🙂

Hi, there, I’m Courtney. I never planned to stay home with my kids, but I got sucked into motherhood when my first baby came into our lives after years of infertility and multiple rounds of IVF. His brother followed closely behind, something we didn’t plan on after having such a rough road with achieving parenthood the first time around. My boys are IVF cycle twins, conceived on the same day but born two years and one day apart (they were both transferred on the same day in October, but with two years between them). My boys are the best of friends and my husband is a terrific husband, father, and most importantly… friend. He fully supported my desire to stay home (“I just wanted it to be your idea and not mine, I totally want you to stay home and raise our kids!”) and encourages me in everything I do. I am a lover of projects, spreadsheets, fitness, healthy cooking and eating, crafts, selling my stuff on FB (HA!), and the outdoors. If I’m active, I’m pretty darn happy!

  1. YES! It absolutely works for some (4 out of 10!!) and that very well might be you!

    Hope today’s appointment goes smoothly. I have no idea about Estrace. Is it really blue?!?!?

  2. Ohmygosh! I can’t believe it’s PIO time almost! And transfer next Friday! October 12th! Woooooooot! 🙂

    Are you transferring two? (I’m being nosy!)

    • Yes, two. Unless they thaw a pair and only one survives – then they’ll thaw two more and if they make it (levaing me with 3), then I need to find out of they’ll do all 3. Not sure about that.

  3. Good luck at your appointment today. I really hope you are ne of the lucky ones!!! I’m so grateful I didn’t have to do estrace….ot heaven forbid estrace andprometrium, which I hear makes a lovely green goo mixed together. Fingers crossed for good news next Friday at transfer time!

    • Turns out I’m so not vested in this cycle yet, that I had my appointment date wrong. It’s tomorrow. Good thing I checked my calendar before going to bed. When I told B, he said, “that’s what I thought when you asked me to watch Matthew tomorrow.” THEN WHY DIDN’T HE ASK THAT? Men! 🙂

  4. I was just thinking last night, it has to work for some, so why can’t YOU be that some?! I have great hopes that those little embryos will turn into a baby (or two) in your arms next summer! Good luck with your appointment today, I’ll be thinking about you!

  5. Man, you’re trucking right along!! Fingers crossed that this works for you.

  6. Really glad you’re managing this cycle so well! Sounds like another case of “you don’t know what you can handle until you’ve done it.” You’ve gone through this before and you know how to do it now 🙂
