Game on

We had plans to go away to a casino with friends for Memorial Day weekend and I said that I didn't want to deal with the FET until after we got back. I wanted to be able to drink and play games and not bring tests or PIO or anything.

I got AF on Sunday night.

Way to punctuate my point, huh?

So, I went to Smirky today for my bloodwork and an ultrasound and am starting estraidol tonight.

You'd think I'd have more to say about this, wouldn't you? But it all seems so anti-climatic? Pills instead of injections? No HCG shot? No retrieval? It can't really be this easy, right?

And, you see, that's the thing. It feels just so damn unlikely that this could work out. But I know that I'll be disappointed if it doesn't. And I'm definitely nervous about opening that can of worms.

But, there you have it. Can, open. Worms... well, you get it.

I'm excited that you are opening the can of worms and I'm wishing you lots of luck.

Go worms, go! Or is it go sperm, go! Or maybe go egg, go!

Whatever. Hoping all the best for you.

(I never did an FET, but I can understand how it must seem strange without all the injections and such. Kinda anticlimatic I suppose.)

Good luck sweetie. Yeah it's weird, FET's are much easier than fresh cycles but just you wait, when they take those embies out the freezer and you wait for the 1st thaw report, it will feel like you back there again...

Praying for a wonderful outcome for you guys xxx
