A few random things...
  • My two days of bed rest are O.V.E.R. but I've been taking it pretty easy today. I've spent a good chunk of time on the couch, but it felt SO good to be able to get up and make my own lunch. 
  • Progesterone suppositories are gross. 
  • I still have 3 Christmas gifts to buy... the same 3 I've had left for the last 4+ weeks. My husband's family is IMPOSSIBLE to buy for!
  • Pinterest has been my saving grace through bed rest. 
  • My husband cannot get home soon enough today! Am finally allowed to shower today, but last time I got super dizzy in my first shower after ET, so I'm waiting until he gets home. 
  • I'm feeling good about this cycle. That was shaken a little yesterday when there was only one freezable embryo- but I'm feeling better, more confident today. 
  • My beta is one week from today. 
  • We're having dinner with friends on Friday night- I'm looking forward to doing something that does not revolve around IVF. 
  • Here are my socks from the transfer....

Yay for bedrest being over! Hope the next week goes by quickly. I FINALLY got your package in the mail, sorry for it being late - not sure what my problem has been, but just been a hermit and haven't been leaving the house much. Have to get out of this funk! I still have no idea what to get my husband for Christmas and I am dread wandering the stores hoping for inspiration, but need to get to it!
Sending lots of good thoughts and prayers for the best Christmas news ever!!

I'm glad you are up and feeling good - hopefully this next week flies by!

Bed rest is super boring. Wishing you the best this cycle!

Oh my goodness the first post-transfer shower was AMAZING. Of course, I waited almost 60 hrs because I'm gross, but still. AMAZING.

Also? The amount of Christmas presents I still have to buy makes me want to cry. Thatisall.

Also? Love your hardwood floors. A lot!

Yeah for making it through bedrest! My beta is also one week from today (13dp3dt) It'll be a great day for both of us!

My word verification for today was "wooks" Just struck me as funny :)
