Finally Friday!!!

Friday has arrived, and I couldn't be happier. Not only is it supposed to be another gorgeous day in the Chi today, and even though I feel like the only one in the city who's working, I'm wearing a new super cute top from my major retail therapy spree yesterday, AND I start stimming tonight!! Wow, it seems like a million years ago my RE told me he thought we should go IVF but now we're are really in it.

And I'm ready, I'm so excited and oh so hopeful. The past few days I've really been going overboard on the worrying, this huge semi-irrational fear that I'm going to be the fastest responder ever and overstim by my first monitoring appt was really starting to get to me. It's just the build up with IVF is almost worse than the process itself, seriously...bring on the needles, the waiting I can't take ANY longer. But hubby and I went on a super long walk last night with the pups, and got out all our fears and concerns about IVF. I know, hubs has fears too, I was totally shocked...hah! But he does, and I don't ask him nearly enough what he's worried/scared about...so I thought it was a great prep talk! And I realized I have to trust the doctors, they know what they're doing, and worrying about things I can't control won't do me any good. That and the nurse, my acupuncturist, whoever else I could ask all assured me the chances of me going in on Tuesday, and having over 35 follicles is near impossible.

So we start tonight and Tuesday am is my first official IVF monitoring appointment. It's funny because I told hubby last night that until this point it almost didn't seem real, like sure hubby is giving me my nightly Lu.pron injection...but I have nothing proving to me anything is actually happening. I really think going in there on Tuesday, seeing a bunch of follies (hopefully) will hit it home that this is for real! Hubby is going to come with me, because as much as I'm not worrying anymore, I know that morning I will be a nervous wreck...Monday is just going to be brutal!

As for the weekend I'm fairly busy so hopefully it will go by super quick. Tonight is couples game night downtown, I tend to be a tad on the competitive side...so game night is my absolute fav. My favorite, Taboo...although hubby refuses to play with me because I can often act like Vin.ce Vau.gn in that scene from the Break Up. Yah, I admit...it's not pretty...but I like to win and I'm sorry but when you sit and stare at your card and say nothing for 30 seconds, well...then you shouldn't be playing taboo in the first place, hah! Love you hubs, and you knwo I dominate that game!! Then Sunday we have Easter brunch at my p's and Easter dinner at the in-laws, so all in all should be a great weekend, and one that will hopefully keep my mind off my upcoming monitoring! Have a great one everyone, and for those of you working I hope you get out of there early!!!

Okay, so working in a super cute top makes the day of a Fashionista even more manageable! And, I fully believe retail therapy can curb all woes for a bit :)

I'm so happy you and hubby took that long walk and talked out your fears. Remember this: PB&J can do ANYTHING :)
