Quick update: I am done with bcp's and AF stopped in for her visit yesterday. I am still doing 20 units of Lupron every night. My suppression check and estradiol blood draw is this Friday. If all is good, I will be decreasing Lupron to 10 units and starting taking estrace tablets on Saturday. My lining check is May 17th, and I will start PIO injections on May 18th. Transfer is scheduled for May 24th. Yikes. This is it!
Yesterday, I had to take our Embryo Thaw and Transfer Consent form to get notarized. I went to our local bank here in town. The notary is someone that I have seen many, many times over the years as I have banked there for 10+ years. It was slightly awkward to say the least. One of my softball players that graduated a few years back was in the bank at the same time. I just tried to keep it casual, but of course the notary gal had to ask me about the form.
Notary: "so are you thawing embryos or are you transferring them?"
Her: "Oh, well congratulations!"
Me: "well, I do hope that congratulations will be in order."
Her: "I just want to be the first to congratulate you!"
Me: "well, thank you."
Me: "we actually aren't telling anybody about this, so I would really appreciate it if you would keep this between just us."
Her: "oh, of course. Congratulations!"
Three times. Three times in a matter of seconds she congratulated me. Shaking my head.
She obviously doesn't know much about this process if she had to ask if we were thawing them or transferring the embryos. What else would we be thawing them for? Not that it matters, I just wanted her to sign the damn paper and get out of there before the ex softball player over heard the conversation. I happen to be currently coaching her younger sister, just another reason to want to keep this on the down low.
Softball is going well, although we have lost our last 3 games. They were against 2 of the best teams in the state though, and I feel pretty good about our team because we were able to compete with them. We are sitting in 2nd place in our league right now. We have 5 more league games. We need to win 2 of them to guarantee a playoff spot, and we need 3 wins to give us the #2 spot in our league so we can host the first playoff game. We only have a few more weeks of our high school season left. It's been a good season. I love the girls and I am so glad that I decided to coach another year.
I am slowly but surely reading everyone's blogs, although I am several days behind. I haven't been a very good blogger friend lately, but I am trying! I just wanted you to know that I am still here and not lost.... and I will get that Prom Talk post out soon. Although I fear it's been built up to be more than it is. Hopefully it won't disappoint.
