So far, so good!

It is a good thing that needles and blood don't bother me!!!! About a week ago I had to go and have some blood work done and going in I figured it would be quite a lot, but I didn't realize it would be 11 vials! It was so much that half way through she had to switch to my other arm. Then again today they needed more blood to get my baseline levels. But so far so good, my calendar stayed the same, yippee!!!! I also have all my meds organized, which makes me feel better. I am a very, very detailed person and I like everything to be organized. All day today I have been checking items off my list of things I have to get done before next Wednesday. That is when my next major doctors appointment will be. I will have to pass some more tests to be able to continue on with this cycle. Pray everything will look good and that the drugs are doing what they are suppose to be doing!

I know last week I wanted to start to be able to begin my cycle and now I need Aunt Flo to go away. I have a gyno appointment tomorrow that I have to go to, to again meet a deadline for my Reproductive Endocrinologist. She is very demanding of my body to do certain things at specific times! I started on birth control today and I am hoping that will make me stop by tomorrow afternoon. Hopefully I will be able to get everything done tomorrow to check another thing off my list.

Another blessing along this crazy journey! I have already had to miss a lot of work up to this point and I don't think every employer would put up with all these days off. It's also just the beginning of the cycle. When I get further along in my cycle, there is a possibility that I will have to go to the doctor everyday to get checked out. The blessing is I work for a family business and my dad is my boss! I don't know what I would do if I had any other job???? It seems like Marcus and I both are in the perfect job at the perfect time! This is another example if God guiding us through this journey! I know there will be more blessings along this journey and I just want to continue my Song of Praise and thank God for what he is doing in our life!

WooHoo! I am so excited that everything is going so well! I will continue to pray that your body cooperates and the plans are completed! God knows the desire of your heart, and I know he is carrying you every step of the way!

I'm so excited for you that you're getting started. I hope your body cooperates and you get all of your tests done. After you get started on the meds things will calm down for a little while.
