FET is like Lasagna

I was thinking about how my emotions and expectations for the upcoming FET are so different than our previous attempts at ttc and IUIs. It reminded me of lasagna. Maybe because I made the most awesome lasagna this week. (Pioneer Woman's recipe....awesome!) Lately I have had food on the brain. I have googled and searched to find if it is a side effect of the lupron and though it is not I am still claiming that it is. Back to the lasagna and FET......

I have come to the conclusion that IUIs and ttc naturally are like made from scratch lasagna. You have to have all of the ingredients and follow the instructions but there is still a chance that you miss something and it comes out wrong. But when you buy a frozen lasagna all of the work has been done for you and all you have to do is bake it. Your expectations are higher and you expect it to work. That is how I feel about this upcoming FET. It should work. There is a good chance that it could and will. Yet there is still the chance that it won't.

We are down to 3 weeks from today. I have an ultrasound on Monday which is CD1 for this cycle. I am not sure what they are looking for with this ultrasound but I am hoping that they will find it! I will let you all know how that goes. And I am sure that next week I will have more food/FET correlations as well!!! Mmmmm....maybe cake.
