Some Updates and Some Baby Items

I went in for baseline labs and an ultrasound on Friday. I was afraid that they would find a cyst or that my blood work would come back that something was wrong. I had expressed my concern to the nurse about the fact that I had started spotting on the 2nd (days before I stopped taking the birth control on the 6th) and I still continued to spot. She said that hopefully doing the ultrasound would help start a normal flow. When she was doing the ultrasound she said that my lining was really thin and that maybe I just needed a little bleed. It never did became more than just spotting. I'm still spotting. I got the call on Friday night that the numbers came back exactly where they wanted them to be. I was told to start taking Estradiol and give myself the Ganirelix injections starting last night. 1 day down, 13 to go! Ugh!

My husband called the union that he used to work for and found out that he has insurance coverage for both of us through the end of March. While discussing this with my parents, I found out that I can use his insurance as my secondary insurance and that my clinic can submit whatever my primary doesn't cover to my secondary for coverage. I had never heard about this and obviously wanted to let my nurse know and she confirmed that they are correct. She said that is why many women have their own insurance, but still stay on their husbands insurance. She said that she would let the insurance lady at the clinic know. A-W-E-S-O-M-E. :)

Mike had his one month check up with his urologist on Friday. His doctor is not impressed with how much he is still swollen. He said that everyone heals at a different pace though. He wants Mike to get a semen analysis done to see that he is headed in the right direction. Mike will get that done and then go back in to see him in another month.

Ok...so I lied about not buying any baby items. I ran across a deals website called Jane and found some Etsy items that were on sale.

They had a $20 gray chevron diaper bag the other day and then the next day they had a $11 gray chevron minky binky. I couldn't help myself. Oops. :)

I changed the "Today I Feel..." magnet on the fridge from "Lovestruck" to "Hopeful" the other day. We are extremely hopeful that this round takes. I don't want to feel the pain that I felt after our fresh cycle in October failed. I can't help but get my hopes up and I have been so busy planning our nursery. I am so ready to make it a reality. We even finalized names. Please, God, answer our prayers.

Getting super excited for your FET. I think they are easier on the body since there's less hormones vein pumped into your body. Praying for an awesome outcome!
