I feel a tad guilty about how much I'm enjoying my weekend thus far... All thanks to both the RE and the acupuncturist stressing how important it is that I take it easy.
It goes without saying that I've taken their advice to heart --- and thankfully, so has my DH!
It's pretty cute -- he's being super protective of me, and keeps encouraging me to take it easy, won't let me do any exercising beyond walking or yoga, and keeps asking if I'm feeling stressed at all--or what he can do to help me relax. Very sweet of the hubby!
And I'm definitely reaping the benefits of all his concern... Thus far, all this 'taking it easy' business has gotten me out of cleaning, yard work, and this weekend's stint of deck repair...
What I've actually done today: woken up at 7:30 am for my Lupron shot, gone to the RE for my u/s and bloodwork, and gone to the acupuncturist (...and napped through most of my session).
Next on the docket? A real nap--at least a short one -- and then on to a co-worker's house for an early-afternoon game date and cook-out. Then maybe to a movie with the hubs later.
Ahhh... I could get used to this!
My report from today's appointment with the RE was a good one: 4 mature follies on the left, 2 on the right. E2 was at 823---continuing to progress much slower than the last round. The u/s tech also mentioned that I had about 9 follies that were on the cusp of maturing, so she said this looked like it would be a good cycle for me.
Please God, let it be so.
I'll try to post another quick update tomorrow... we hope to trigger wednesday, for a friday ER. We'll see if anything changes with that timeline over the coming days.
"Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus." Philippians 4:6-7
Definitely praying for that this next week...
