Back to Reality

Sorry for the huge lapse in posts. I know there's no excuse, but does being on vacation count? I just got back from our vacation to Iceland, Finland, Sweden, Estonia, and Greenland. It was a whirlwind trip with no rest. Seriously, I need a vacay from our vacay. Doc loves to pack as much as he can into our trips and this time he outdid himself. We spent the most time in Iceland, driving around the country and seeing all the major sites. It is an absolutely beautiful island and the name, "Iceland," is a bit of a misnomer. It was cold, but it's also very green and lush with tons of beautiful waterfalls. Luckily, our days were long with 20+ hours of sunlight, so we were able to squeeze a lot into our days.

But now I'm back at the office, trying to refocus again. It's so hard to get back into the swing of things after coming back from vacation. (insert long sigh) I always, always kick myself for not adding in a couple of buffer days to make the transition a little less painful. It never works, though.

On another note, the countdown has begun to my FET...It's a little less than a month away before I head back to Denver to transfer two of my four blasts. I started the lupron yesterday and the last day for my BCPs is tomorrow. I can't believe we're so close. I don't want to get my hopes up, so I'm trying to remind myself that I only have a 50/50 chance according to all the stats that I've read on Google and what Dr. Sur has told me. I'm taking it one day at time and hoping for the best!

Hey Sooz -glad you had a great trip! It is hard to come back, especially when you have to start lupron. I just finished my last BCP yesterday and this seems to the the slowest cycle ever! Now I have to wait for my period to start so I can get the suppression check, which I am worried it won't. Good luck with getting geared up for the FET!

What a fantastic opportunity for a trip. Hopefully your last one as just the two of you. :) I always try to add a day at the end of any long trip so I can rest too, but its so hard! You'd rather use that time to absorb more at someplace magical, rather than doing laundry and cleaning! Weekend is almost near so hope those two days of rest help.

Good luck with that FET. Be positive on those 50-50 outcome scenarios!!

Hi there! So glad things are rolling along for your FET and your vacation sounds great! I had a student from Iceland two years ago. It sounds like a super safe place for kids to play outside...blocks from home! Looking forward to following your journey!
