Today...

... Is the first day of the rest of my life.
... You have 100% of your life left.
... I started my IVF preparations.

I like the last one the best.

This morning I knocked 4 pills down my gullet, tonight I will get 2 more plus start my 10mg Lupron injections.

I can't believe it's actually happening. It's here. It's not being postponed because of surgeries or money or timing with work. In 3 to 4 short weeks I will be having eggs retreived. 5 days after that will be the transfer. I hope that is.

It's hard not to get my hopes up. It's almost impossible to think about the future without a little one to care for.

So here it is. I'm on the train, heading toward my destination of motherhood.

I hope I don't miss my stop....

Let your hopes increase- you deserve it! Wohoo for starting the injections and getting the ball rolling- you'll be at the ER and ET before you know it.

Yay! Ride the train and enjoy the view! I know how awesome it is to start your meds...it gives you something to DO to work toward your goal. Hoping and praying your train stays on track and you get to transfer right on schedule!
