Dearest Aunt Flo, Welcome Back, It’s Nice to See You

Yes it’s true I finally got my period. And yes, I actually am glad to see the old biddy.

After many rounds of phone tag earlier this week concerning the fact that I had not in fact gotten my period as was predicted, the powers that be at Ye Olde Giant Fertility Clinic, decided that I’d better bring my uterus back in and get back in the saddle (oops, stirrups) to see what was going on. Sooooo, I scheduled an appointment for first thing this morning. Lo and behold, upon awaking this morning I realized I had gotten my period. Hip Hip Hooray! But just to be safe (and since they don’t answer their phones that early in the day) I went on in and it was decided that I’d might as well saddle up because they’d need me to come back in a couple of days anyway to see if those visiting cysts were making themselves comfortable or had packed their bags and left my ovaries in peace. Well, it was a good day all around. In addition to getting my period, they RE only saw one cyst today and it was mucho smaller than just last week. So, now I just need to wait 28 days - give or take a few - and then we can start IVF#5, take 2.

But really the most exciting news of all (drum roll please) the TOOTPU (The Order of the Plastic Uterus) get together is Sunday. If you’ll be in DC please join us – just click on the link for all the information.
I can't wait to see the fabulous ladies of TOOTPU. Plus, it gives me a good reason to make a tasty chocolate dream of a dessert.

I hope everyone has a great weekend! I plan to.

Oops almost forgot something very important. Since I absentmindedly left my camera at my parent's house (I keep leaving the damn thing everywhere - perhaps I'm unconsciously trying to lose it so I can justify buying a new one - ??) I haven't gotten a photo of the item I play to sell for the UTERUS Ebay auction. Nevertheless, if you haven't heard about it please click the link at right for more information and then click here to buy something or send the link to your friends. It's a fundraiser for a great cause, you get something for the money you spend, and I think all the items are reasonably priced. Nothing strike your fancy? You can still help, take a look in the back of your closets or the bottom of your drawers and see if you have something to donate -- it's really easy! ;)

See you tomorrow

Isn't it funny how Aunt flo comes running the minute we have plans to check on her?

I just wanted to drop by and wish you all the best for your next IVF, I hope that this one does the trick!!

Much love xxx
