Our journey through infertility, failed adoptions and now parenthood through the miracle of embryo adoption/donation.

This time next week.....

I will be PUPO (pregnant until proven otherwise)!!!! I had my ultrasound today and everything looks perfect. WOO HOO!!! So tomorrow I start the suppositories tomorrow and I end my lupron on Sunday. One week without injections! Whatever will I do with myself??? I would say sleep in, but I still have to take Estrace, patches and suppositories at 7 am. Oh well! It was a nice thought.

I was talking to the nurse today about my protocol and she reminded me that I will need to continue the suppositories, Estrace and the patch for the first trimester if I become pregnant. What I didn't realize was that I would have to order all of these meds once I know that I am pregnant. That means the week of Christmas I will have to spend $300!!! I am not too happy about this at all!! I may order the 2 less expensive meds now, just in case. That way I will only have to cough up $235 the week of Christmas. I so wish that my clinic would allow me generic estrogen. That darn Estrace is $$$$$$$. The nurse did say that I could just fill a partial RX and then order the rest as needed to keep from having to spend so much at one time.

I am hoping that this last week speeds by. I am excited and scared all at the same time. But that is not going to change anytime soon so I just want to get it over with. Then I can focus on my babies. For one week, regardless of whether or I become pregnant or not, they will be my babies and I will enjoy ever moment with them.


  1. The time is almost here!!!! I'm so excited for you, Jess. I will be keeping you in my prayers that all goes well.

  2. Wow.. ONE WEEK! YAY! How exciting! Will be praying like crazy for you!

    And I LOVED your last sentence. What a wonderful way to look at it!

  3. YIKESSSSSSSSSSSS!!!! So excited!! Thanks for updating this so regularly!!! :)


  4. Did you ask the office for samples? I got "samples" of all of my estrogen and prenatal vitamins thru my doctor's office- they get them in all of the time-



I love comments! They make me feel important.
