Today's blood work estrogen and progesterone levels have finally normalized. When I received a text from my nurse about everything looking great it was a bittersweet feeling. My arm was aching after the blood draw. The nurse even mentioned the fact that she felt my skin pop when the needle went it. It's the only arm they can ever find a good vein so I have to suck it up.

Transfer is set for the 5th of September.  September is going to be a really busy month for us. I was worried about this but after talking to J about this it will probably help the wait fly by. Tomorrow I lower my lupron dosage to 10ml and start estrogen patches. First time Ill use these so we will see how that goes.

My acupuncturist office is going through a lot changes. Meaning there's a lot of new faces. I've had the pleasure of meeting Rachelle and I was impress with her knowledge. Here's hoping to a successful September cycle!

The day I dreaded has come and went.  I have to admit it wasn't as daunting as i expected.  I woke up with a peaceful mindset. Funny. ..I have to admit I felt the tranquility in my heart since the day before and I owe that to God.  He truly has listened.

We arrived to the clinic and I was greeted with a birthday card.  When Dr. B came into the room she pointed out how excited I looked.  The ultrasound revealed my lining was finally at 4mm. Finally passed one milestone.  J decided to remind her that I was glowing because it was my bday.  Well I got the biggest surprise of my life.  Dr. B and I share the same birthday. Sign or not? It's like the Lord was trying to tell me something. Dr. B shared a story with me. The last time she shared a birthday with one of her patients it ended with a happy ending. She went on to explain that this patient went through a similar situation and after her birthday she got her success. Motivation. .. indeed.  J and I admitted how Dr. B has become such a blessing in our life's. If you were to meet her you would instantaneously gravitate to her. (Later a nurse called to let me know my estrogen levels and progesterone are elevated.  I have to go back Monday for more blood work before I can start meds. )

Since it was my birthday J and I decided to play ditch. It totally felt like I was ditching school.  Missing work in the middle of the week was pretty awesome. He took me to breakfast.

We went to a new place,  a little cafe by my clinic.  The food wasn't too bad. 

Then we went SHOPPING! Can you say fun? ! When I arrived home I received cute gifts from my nieces. 

The top picture is from my 4 year old niece. She said it's her and I. The bottom is from my 7 year old niece. She was excited to show me her butterfly. 

My parents are out of town because my grandfather is having surgery. Before they left they gave me flowers and a card. Like every year. .. although this year was a bit different. My parents both took the time to write something special inside, as well as, my little bother. I was touched by what they ask decided to write. It truly touched my heart.  This is a sign, he truly is good. 

“And [so that you can know and understand] what is the immeasurable and unlimited and surpassing greatness of His power in and for us who believe. ...”
(Ephesians 1:19, AMP)

I cannot believe the weekend is already over. This past weekend was suppose to be a celebration for my upcoming  birthday.

It all went well until unwanted drama happened. Oh well it was nice seeing everyone have a good time. Specially seeing J holding our baby niece. It warmed my heart to see her in his arms.

The rest of the weekend was uneventful. Lucky for me AF didn't show until the following day. Today was my baseline ultrasound and unfortunately since my period want heavy my lining was at 10mm. I have to go back on Thursday for a follow up ultrasound. Better get some good news on my bday!
