Guess I need to post something...

Not much going on. Yesterday marked three months since we started our stim shots for IVF. Can't believe it has been three months. I had another doctor's appointment today. I just had blood work today to check my progesterone levels. If the progesterone level is under 4 then I will start the progesterone SHOTS again (ugh, boo and hiss hiss hiss, did I mention boo?). If my level is above 4 then we will start the progesterone inserts (Prometrium).

I assume (and I will ask when they call and give me my results) that the need for progesterone therapy works both with pregnancy AND with starting your cycle. So...we shall see. I will be Day 23 (or around that) tomorrow. So, it shouldn't be long before we "know" something. What a blessing it would be if we conceived on our own...but again, we shall see.

Matt and I are leaving very early in the morning for Kansas. Matt ended up working a double tonight and won't get home until well after midnight. Poor guy. We got word from Erin that the funeral will be packed tomorrow and we were planning on getting into Wichita at 10 (30 min before the funeral)...so, I am going to try to get us up and out of here by 3:30 a.m. That will get us to Wichita around 9:30 a.m. if we don't stop. Sigh. I dread the day all around. I haven't let myself go "there" yet and I dread getting "there". I am so thankful that Matt will be there to help pick up the pieces.
