Off Guard

Saturday, May 5th, 2012.  CD12.

Well, today was my second monitoring follow-up appointment, and I assumed things would go pretty much like they did in the last cycle.

…I was wrong.

My little 15mm follie from Thursday has grown and matured well enough, and since my estradiol level has dropped, we are triggering tonight.  IUI will follow on Monday morning!

One whole day earlier than I expected, but okay!  🙂

I also got to see a good friend from out of town today, and her cute little daughter.  We went out to breakfast and talked about life.  I had crepes.  Things are good.

Oh, AND I got the good news that my pregnant friend’s contractions have started, so the little darling MIGHT be on her way!  I hope tonight’s Super Moon prompts her quick and safe arrival.  🙂

Today is a great day.  Lots of great news and experiences… Not the least of which is the fact that today is the sixth anniversary of my first “date” with the husband.  Well, we called it a date after the fact.  To be honest, it was more like a bunch of friends starting the night off with drinks and fun, and ending the night as a couple out with a few friends.

Sometimes I can’t believe how much time has passed.  Sometimes it feels like it was just yesterday.

We’ve been through a lot over the years we’ve been together, and we had been through a lot as friends for years before that.  Now, as married adults, we are going through one of the toughest things either of could imagine.  It’s something we never imagined we’d be going through, and yet it seems to be bringing us even closer.

I would never be able to get through this without his support.  I just hope my body stops failing and I can finally give him the only anniversary gift either of us really wants.

Happy Cinco de Mayo, friends!  🙂

    yay for all of the positives! and i was just talking with my cousin about how having a supportive cousin during this trying time makes a HUGE difference (and gives you a good clue of how the rest of the marriage will go when something difficult arises). So a HUGE positive there, as well. Good luck today!
