building a home

I'm trying to build a home for my little embryo.  My estrogen needs to be at 50 or above today and mine was 44.  I usually have a lining that is too thick.  My nurse wants me to up my patches from 1 to 4 every other day.  I'm tired from starting a new job and I just don't have the energy to do yoga in the morning and walking for 30 minutes at night.  I did 15 minutes of yoga tonight and I'm up way past bedtime.  I've also been having headaches and GI issues.

I'm going to do better tomorrow!!!

almost time

I have my first monitoring appointment on Monday to check my estrogen.  If everything looks good, we continue on and fly out on Sunday in time for my first monitoring in Denver on Monday.  They will check my lining to make sure its creating a good home for our little one. 
The whole FET has been pretty ok.  I spotted a little on birth control.  The nurse said its ok to spot.  The Lupron and patches are fine.  I might have had a few minor Lupron headaches and I've been very tired at night.  I've been a little weepy the last two nights.  Watching Juno tonight did not help.  Only IFers really understand the pain the Jen Gardner character feels in that movie. 

Last night I had a dream that I was breastfeeding.  I love having baby dreams.  I haven't really had many the past couple years.  I might have had too much anger in my heart.

I feel like I should give our little guy a name.  I see so many people give them a name and I think they like it.  I'll have to ask my DH to help me create one.  I'm not very creative.   

I've been following all of you and it really sucks not to be able to comment.  I have no idea what is going on with my access.  I most likely hit something that keeps me from posting?

Lots of change is on the horizon for me.  I'm starting a new job.  I disclosed my situation before I accepted the position because I'm in the thick of IF and I don't really need to change my job.  I hope I made the right choice! 

I begin Lupron this weekend.  I feel like I'm an expert at IVF and a total newbie at FET.  If you have any suggestions throw them my way.  I'm staying away from caffeine and alcohol.  I'll stop my melatonin when I begin Lupron.  I love melatonin so this will be hard...
