16 Days

Until the transfer. I started meds on Thursday, got my calendar yesterday, and found out the transfer is July 6. Contracts are not signed and I don't even have contact information for my IF's. Things are so weird, but no less exciting. I just silently pray that this whole journey goes smoothly with a positive outcome. I know that everyone wishes that, but with as fast as things are going, I am just in the unknown right now. WOW is all I can say. :)

That's the pace we're moving at now. I am starting meds tomorrow - can you believe that? I was officially matched on Friday and now, less than one week later, I will be starting meds. It wasn't exactly easy though. The girl I spoke with at the Dr.'s office told me to start on birth control and I was thinking, "I've been on that for 3 months now, I don't want to continue with that and have to wait 5/6 more weeks until the transfer." So I told her that Dr. S said he wanted me to start my meds as soon as my cycle started. He even asked me if I still had some left over from last time (but unfortunately I don't). So she called the pharmacy and asked them how soon they could get me the meds and that turns out to be tomorrow! I still don't have my official calendar yet so I don't know when the transfer will be, but we're moving right along now. Yea!!

Back From NYC

And everything went great. We were only able to meet one IF so it would have been great to meet him also, but at least we were able to speak with him. The meeting was lead with Stuart Miller, one of the CEO's of Growing Generations. So that was pretty cool. After the meeting, we went to a great Italian restaurant and talked for a long time. Then we walked. Also for a long time. I didn't even need to use the hotel gym because we got so much exercise walking. Well, today we went to Central Park, which is amazing, and we rented bikes and rode our butts off. I wish I knew how many miles we raked in over the last two days! A lot, I'm sure.

Anyway, I am now officially matched and I have no idea how fast or slow things will move from here. I am excited and happy to be moving forward and at this point I am quietly praying for the best.

I will leave you with a pic of the little cutie who turns 4 months tomorrow. Isn't he so cute?

We're Outta Here

We're leaving early tomorrow morning. Thanks to my mom for watching the kids while we're gone. So excited to be going to New York. Wish us luck...

And So It Begins...

My hair falling out that is. I thought that maybe, just maybe, my body would just be nice to me and let me keep my hair. I even cut it all off in hopes that since it was shorter it would, for some reason, stay on my head. But no, my hair decided that it just doesn't want to be with me any longer. It's falling out left and right. And, I haven't even stopped taking prenatals (although I did stop the fish oil pills).

On a lighter note, my husband and I are going to NEW YORK next Thursday for the match meeting. We are both totally thrilled. I just assumed that the meeting would take place in LA but no, it's going to be in New York. Neither of us have ever been there so that's why we are so excited. That's where my new PIF's are from. I was told today that they are really ready to rock 'n roll so that is great news. It's looking like we might be transferring in July. Woo Hoo! I'm just so happy how everything is moving along.

Screenings Done (and no I'm still not crazy)

I'm glad to say I once again passed my screenings with ease. I feel like things are a bit of a whirlwind after this trip to LA. Dr. S is so eager to move forward that in his mind he has the transfer date for June. I find this highly unlikely as I'm not even truly "matched" yet. I also have a feeling that things aren't exactly going to be moving along fast any time soon. Oh well, I know how the waiting game works and I'm actually pretty used to it by now. I will definitely post if I ever hear any update. Next is the match meeting and I am really looking forward to that (I just hope it ends successfully). Until then I am going to go twiddle my thumbs... :)
