we've got dates

Finally!

After all the stops, starts and delays, I am holding the dates loosely.

I have a baseline u/s scheduled for May 30. Egg retrieval is scheduled for June 20 and embryo transfer June 25. The nurse said she would send out an official schedule later today (does that mean next week?), but that is what we are working with at the moment.

Finally, we can gear up and get this party started.

(I hope)

p.s. I also wanted to tell you that I passed my exam. Thank jaw, because I'll have bigger fish to fry (or embryos to nestle) in the near future.

    1. I can't comment on this post for some reason (no magic comment box for me) so I'm going to parasitically hang off Adele's, 'cause she won't mind. WHAT A GREAT NEWS ONE-TWO COMBO! I'm so happy. Not that I'm going to let my breath out until you're actually through this process, but at least you're not sitting on your hands anymore. And more by e-mail, but OH, so glad you passed. HURRAH, you brilliant, hard working thing!

  6. Whoopeee! (Said with a just for Augusta interpretive dance of joy!) Progress + passing your exam = best news of my day. I've lined up the voodoo chickens, batches of fairy dust and set traps for leprechauns to ready myself for next month's adventures. I am prepared to work whatever magic the universe may want on your behalf.

  20. YAY! YAYYAYAYAY!!!!
    So pleased for you Augusta. Having actual dates makes you feel very secure and like it is all actually going to happen doesnt it? Cue crazy feelings of having to balance being petrified and excited (if you're anything like me anyway).
    And I'm so proud of you and your exam result! Let the good news continue to flood over you my friend...
