Just Wishin’’ and hopin’’ and thinkin’’ and prayin"...

Not really much to update on. I went in Monday for bloodwork, we boostered my HCG and I started my Estrace (Estrogen) and patches. Then I went in again today for more bloodwork and we are going to booster my HCG again. Last time we only boostered it once, but apparently procedure has changed. It was explained to me that your lining (where baby implants for simpler terms) starts to deteriorate after you ovulate so the HCG makes your body think you are pregnant giving the embryos more time to implant or helping to substain an early pregnancy. I'll go back Friday for more bloodwork. Our official BETA (pg test) is on the 19th, so freaking far away! And of course I can't even pee on a stick and it be accurate because I KNOW I have HCG in my system which would make it be positive. Ugh.

My birthday is Friday and I will be 31. I keep trying to think, but I'm really not sure how this happened. When I look at myself I still see a 25 year old staring back at me. I'm just not sure where all the time has gone. I am now closer to 40 than 20, which just.... well it's so not cool. I told my mom earlier today that really they say 30 is the new 20, so actually I'm turning 21. ;o) I don't think she bought it. At least if nothing else my birthday is on Friday the 13th this year, that is always cool!
