Managed faith and a lot of excitement!

I keep telling everyone that I am working on "managed faith". Perhaps there is no such thing, but for me, I am putting all my strength into this procedure. I know after 10 years of trying that sometimes it just isn't up to me to decide when or how children will come into our lives. My "managed faith" is simply a way of saying that I have faith, but I also understand that it's not in my hands or even the doctor's to decide if this will be "it".

The infertility process seems to be a very careful and tedious one. I have been in the doctor's office every 3-4 days since we started as they track my egg production. This Saturday's ultra-sound sent me brimming with excitement, as he is saying that Wednesday will be the day that they will, with a needle, stuck you know where - go in and get those eggs! I sheepishly asked the doctor after my ultra sound if this was the day Craig needed to come too - and he laughed - in a nice way - that yes, that would be a good idea!"

I go in on Monday morning for the last ultra sound just to make sure that I am still good. If so, I take the ovulating drug that day and I'm in on Wednesday for our our donation day. I'll keep you updated! I'm nervous, but very very hopeful! I also have a root canal on Monday too!

Thank you for your sweet comment on my blog. YES I am back exercising! Holy smokes, I am not invisible is what I learned! I gained 3 lbs just taking a week off! Apparently I love to eat food, so I better keep working my booty off! Ha!

My dear friend! You are so patient and full of faith. I could learn a thing or two from you. You are a beautiful person who deserves only the best. Love ya and wish you luck in all of your baby making! :)

I'll be thinking of you today! Too bad you've got to throw that root canal into the mix!

P.S I'm still good for Wed night, I'll be there around 7 to set up. Call me if you need to, but otherwise, I think I'm good to go. See you Wednesday!
