Tomorrow we leave on our trip to Vegas, and I am SO excited! It will be our first time leaving the girls, so I'm a little bit nervous about that, but even more excited about going. The kids will be with my in-laws, so I know they'll be fine. I'm sure routines and schedules will get a little hazy, and there will most likely be extra treats and goodies, but I hear that's what being with grandparents is about.
This is the beginning of what is going to be a hectic month! We're in Vegas for 5 days, back home for 1, then off camping with the girls for 3, back home for 2, and then will have everyone here while we go through the process of our first attempt doing the embryo transfer. Janelle, her mom, and Joel will be here before we know it! I'm pretty excited! Will try to get our house back in order before everyone gets here, so it doesn't completely look like a tornado has just been through it. (Key word here is "try")
This morning I went for another ultrasound and more bloodwork at the clinic. This was done to get a baseline of where my body is at, my hormone levels since my depot injection and my endometrial lining. I was talking to the doctor about our upcoming plans and that we were off to Vegas tomorrow, and we figured that since we're about to do all of this, we thought we deserved to have a 'last hurrah' before getting knocked up again. He was in full agreement, and told me that it was GREAT idea! It's nice to have medical endorsement for our upcoming week of excess. Heheh...
The technician and I were talking about Vegas while the doctor was doing the procedure; restaurants, shows, casinos and hotels, and in between I'd hear him call out numbers and results of my tests, that she would then mark down. Now I wish I'd been paying more attention. The only thing that I'm sure I definitely heard, was that my lining is thin right now, which is neither good nor bad, just normal as to where I am at in my cycle. They'll take control of it tomorrow as I start taking my Estrace, a medication to start making the lining of my uterus as thick as it can be, which is needed in order to be able to receive the embryo(s). Wow! Seeing that (s) there at the end of embryo, makes me realize it could be more than one. Though I've known this forever, it really hits me seeing it in print, and typing it out. Crazy.
I'm excited for what's to come, and looking forward to the next few weeks.
So in the meantime...hello Sin City! No cooking, no cleaning, no diapers and no getting up at the crack of dawn for this gal! And who knows - we might even be able to bring back some of the money we left behind last time we went there! :)
