Today is five days after the transfer and I have been really enjoying my down time at home. My husband and oldest son, Holland, flew to LA this weekend to The 3 Stooges movie premiere. Holland was laughing the entire time! I heard it is hilarious for kids, I will take him again this weekend.
In the meantime it has been little Blakey and myself at home. Playing cars, building legos, maybe drinking and eating snacks out of legos as well. Bubble baths, snuggle fests and when Blakey is asleep I have been wildly reading the Hunger Games books. I'm a quarter way through book three.
I have felt different this time around, last time I was cramping right away for three to four days, this time not as much. I have been eating my pineapple core each day, making my fruit/spinach smoothie and for good (sticky) measure, eating my organic peanut butter (straight out of the jar since no one's looking!). The blood draw will be on Friday the 13th. I feel like we may turn that into a very lucky day, I hope.
I feel positive and hopeful this will work, but still a little hesitant after last time of course. I really just cannot wait to be pregnant, and take care of a baby in my belly so that my brother and sister in law can have their baby for life.
Here are some fun photos that were left out of last weeks post.... first of all, James and Natalie's embryos! They are so beautiful and what a cool thing to see how life starts. These embryos are five days old in this photo.
Little Lucich Embryos!
Yes, I wrote that on my thigh! A little humor for the doctor to see when we started the transfer. I feel a little humor goes a long way! He started laughing and said, "In all of my 16 years.... I have never...."
As always, please take a moment to share our story so other women can connect and not feel so alone. It also helps us. I know Natalie and I received several emails after last week's post, and comments, that brought us to full blown sobbing fests. We really appreciate all the readers and all the support.
Don't forget to "like" us on Facebook and keep up with all the latest news of the movie and the journey.
