So tonight is the last night of my "youth". Not that I feel 30 is old, I guess I just always saw myself at a different place by the time I was 30. My Mom had all 5 of her kids by my age and Travis' Mom had 8 of hers. Most of my friends are sending their oldest to kindergarden and talking about having their 3rd or 4th.
I am greatful for my wonderful marriage and even thankful for the 9.5 years we have had to really get to know each other and learn to work well together. I think that it's fitting that as I leave my "roaring" 20's behind that I look forward to starting the next chapter hopefully with some good news on the baby front. Good bye youth, hello tomorrow

So at my Dr appt today he said that I have 4 follicules that are big enough to release eggs. He gave me my last injection to take tonight that will force me to ovulate. So we are instructed to have "fun" tonight and tomorrow then wait two weeks to see if it worked. Its been a long week and a half, and a really expensive one too. We figured we have spent approxemitly $1800. not including gas for the 2 hour, each way, trip. Thanks for all your prayers and keep them coming.

So yesterday I went to the Dr again to have the levels checked out. He did an ultrasound and said things look good. He decreased my dosage a little, did some blood work and wants to see me Monday to check again. I'm very thankful for my best friend Becca for going with me. Travis had a basketball game he was coaching so she came with me. After Monday if the levels are good, then he will give me a shot to induce ovulation. Then we wait to see if it works.

So today we went back to the fertility Dr. I start the injections tonight (Follistim). Then I go back to LA to the Dr on friday to make sure the current doasage is enough. I guess that I should be excited,but the shock of the price tag has still not wore off. I'll try and keep my blog updated as we continue on.
