Yesterday, Liz from Wishing On A Snowflake posted that she created a new embryo adoption/donation group on Face.book. It is set to a secret status, so only a current member of the group can add another person. This group is meant for anyone on any step on the embryo adoption/donation journey. If you are interested and want to be added to the group, please read her post here and email her at firstname.lastname@example.org.
So, I joined this group on Face.book. In a way, I am "coming out", sort of. Because I write this blog anonymously, people don't know who I am, other than my sister and a few friends in real life. By joining this group, I am revealing my true identity, at least to those in this FB group. It is a little nerve wrecking but exciting at the same time. It's nice to meet others going through or have gone through the EA journey. So if you are on the EA/ED journey, I invite you to join this group.
Today, I also emailed NEDC my Thaw and Transfer Instructions form. This form indicates how many embryos we wish to transfer. We have indicated we are willing to transfer 3 at the very most. NEDC usually only transfers 2 embryos, unless the quality of the third is not great, then they will transfer up to three.
I took my last BCP (birth control pill) tonight. Thank goodness! I have been on BCP for 64 days straight. Hopefully, my period will come soon though I have already been spotting for the last 2-3 weeks. I have an appointment scheduled for Friday for blood work and an ultrasound to make sure my body is responding properly.
I think the only real side effect I am feeling from Lu.pron is hot flashes. I'm also a kinda tired, but I'm also feeling under the weather. I have been fighting an emerging cold for the last few days which started the day before I started Lu.pron shots. So it's kinda difficult to tell if what I'm feeling is from the cold or the Lu.pron shots.
Only a little over 3 weeks before we hop on the plane to go meet our babies!
