It has been a pretty uneventful week as far as infertility goes. I have been continuing with my nightly shots and have added in the Estrogen pill this week. I started with a 1/2 pill once in the morning and once at night. Now I am up to a whole pill twice a day. Sunday it will continue to increase to 2 pills twice a day. To be honest I am not entirely sure what the estrogen is for. I know you need some to get pregnant, but too much can hinder pregnancy. It really is crazy how they have figured out the exact dosing and have it down to a science. It kind of is hard for this Type A girl to just take what someone says without knowing every single step and reason why. I am not one to usually trust a doctor without researching it all, but here I am popping pills for an unknown reason. :) 

My stomach is definitely getting sore and tender. I am running out of room to do my shots and when I hit a spot I have previously given a shot it in hurts a little more. Only 1 more week of these and then we are on to the fun stuff! ;) You can see in the pics below the bruising on the right side from when I hit a blood vessel and on the left there are some little dots from my injections. It's a good thing I have some many moles and freckles because they just blend right in! 

Next Thursday, I have my last ultrasound to make sure things look good and if so, I will start on the progesterone shots in my booty and the heparin in my belly. The heparin is an added shot specific for me since I have a genetic mutation called MTHFR that puts me at a higher risk for blood clots. I took it last time with Blakely for my entire 1st trimester and that is when the bruising really kicks in. So hopefully I will be back next Friday with the green light to go ahead and do this transfer! Your prayers are still coveted and very appreciated!!

 The girls older cousin Paige is in town and we are off today to take her on a cruise to the bahamas for her high school graduation present! I am looking forward to some time with her and relaxing without the kiddies! Let's pray I don't get bit by any bugs and get the Zika virus. That would really halt all these baby plans. (I am secretly freaking out inside!) I hope you all have a great weekend and I'll be back next Friday with hopefully good news!
