We're going to Baby M's birthday party today.

Chance's cycle started today.

I start Lupron in five days.

Neuroses, mood swings, crying jags, and a general state of freakedoutedness also to commence in five days.

Here we go.

    Tossing some good luck and baby dust your way!

    I’m buckled in. What a fortuitous coincidence – Baby M’s birthday and Chance’s cycle starting the same day. I like the luck in that!

    happy Birthday, Baby M!
    Hang tight. Any good baking planned for the lupron crazies?

    WaaaaaaH! I’ll be just a few weeks behind you!

    good luck with the new cycle and the loopy lupron, etc.

    Happy birthday, Baby M! I agree with anymommy, it’s good luck!

    Please keep your arms inside the cart and legs in the stirrups until the ride comes to a full and complete stop. Thank you for riding the SURRRROOOOOO TRAIN!

    Woo-hoo!! Woo-hoo!! I am SO excited for you. You won’t recognize my handle but I sent you the priority mail package from Seattle 2 weeks ago. Now with a BFP in hand I am hoping and praying the same will happen for you and Chance.
    One Lupron tip: exercising while on Lupron made the crazies, headache, and exhaustion miraculously and instantly go away, at least for a few hours. Can’t do that when you are stimming, but conveniently you won’t be. If the Lupron is smacking you, give it a shot.

    Wheeeee! I hope this ride is AWESOME.

  11. Io on March 29, 2009 at 8:26 pm

    Whoops. Sorry! I am enthusiastic about Baby M’s birthday, but I didn’t mean to hit the caps lock.

    I like the symbolism between your suro-baby celebrating his birthday and your next IM starting her cycle.

  13. sara on March 29, 2009 at 9:22 pm

    I’m here for the ride and any bumps and ups and downs! I am so excited for you all…thanks again for all of your encouragment. I may actually have some questions in the weeks ahead and yes….I’ll ask away. Thanks for offering to help. ((hugs))

    OMG, good luck with the cycle!!! We’ll see you through all those uncontrolable hormones, never fear.

    Wishing you and Chance all the best for this next cycle !
