I have three words for you: We Did It!

Through much hard work, love, dedication, determination, paypaling, and support guess who has reached her FET savings goal? Me! I don’t think I can even articulate this feeling that is gallivanting through my body right now. Imagine 3 cans of red bull without the headache. Imagine the exhilaration of a continuous volt of electricity without the pain. My spirit is doing cartwheels and triple salchows.

I just got off the phone with the North East clinic and I could do my FET whenever I want. As in if I bleed tomorrow I could be cycling the next day. Insane.

Too much insane, actually. But I have a date. Well, really it is a month. July will be the independence month for my embryos. July. 2008. As in just a bit over a month from now. Insane. Insane. Insane.

Here is what the clinic’s plan is: CD2 ultrasound and bloodwork at local clinic. If all systems go then I begin estrace. CD15 gets another ultrasound and bloodwork. If things are still going well then I begin PIO and Pvagrockets. (& maybe medrol? um…I was doing the cartwheels and might have missed something) I don’t have to be up at North East Clinic until CD20 (or later if I want to take the embryos to blast. Do I want to do that?) Three days after transfer I get bloodworked & ultrasounded and then I can go home.


I wish I could single out & thank each and every one of you that helped me get this far. Our community is unstoppable and all-embracing. I have met so many groovy and wonderful women in these last few months. Women that went above and beyond to help me out. I will probably never know how much work some of you guys did behind the scenes. I love you all.

What I do know is that this kind of support is something that needs to continue on to others. I can’t wait to find out who the next UTERUS recipient is for the Summer season.

Thank you. Thank you infinity. You are now getting front row seats to the great summer thaw of 2008.
