Wow, I didn’t realize it had almost been a full month since I written and updated! I swore I was going to be better about doing more updated after the last one, and yet, here I am again! It feels like a lot has happened in the last month. So, here we go!
I had an ultrasound at the beginning of this month, just to get a base check and make sure everything was good on the inside. They said everything looked great and that I was (surprise! Not lol) still very fertile based on my mature follicle count. I’ve always been quite fertile, so it’s good to know that hasn’t changed. And hopefully that will make getting a little embryo to stick super easy! 🙏🏼🤞🏼
After that, and being fully medically cleared, we started talking to our respective lawyers to get paperwork drafted. As always, it’s been a little bit of back and forth on that front but I’m hoping we can get everything finalized this week, which I just realized is actually today, so that I can get my calendar/schedule from the IVF clinic and start the IVF meds as soon as possible! I’ve been told by the clinic that it’s typically 3-4 weeks from starting medication to the transfer, so that will give us a good idea of when I’ll be heading to Los Angeles for the procedure.
All in all, it’s been a super productive month! I personally thought all the legal would be done by now, and I’d likely already be on the meds, but I think it just get excited and think things will always move faster than they do in reality! But I’m also a believer that things usually happen when and as they should, so I’m banking on that and just being ready for the ride whenever it does begin.
In the meantime, I’m still just trying to be a good mama (and tia/auntie) to my girls! My beautiful Salem girl is 7 months old now. I just don’t know where the time has gone! She’s got 8 teeth, some VERY blonde hair coming in and the sweetest personality that’s starting to show.
We also got family pictures done this month and they couldn’t have turned out better! I’m in love with them all, we even ended up just paying extra so we could get all of them. They were done by Kelley Harris with Dazzling Diva Photography in Conroe, TX. I couldn’t recommend her more highly! She’s an amazing person AND photographer. Double positive.
Those are just a sample of some of my favorites! They’re all beyond perfect. It was past time to do some really good family photos. I’ll write again when I have another update! Cross ALL your fingers for me that legal is all wrapped up very shortly and the IVF process gets going!
