In A Good Spot

I'm in a good spot right now, on a number of levels.

Geographically, I'm camped out in the recliner (thanks Grandma and Grandpa Mayer!) in our family room. Laptop, telephones, and remotes are all within reach. DVD player is loaded with season 2 of Grey's Anatomy.

Physically, I'm feeling pretty good. I'm relaxed. Most of the bloating and cramping from retrieval have subsided. It isn't quite as painful now when I'm sporting a full bladder. The progesterone in oil injections have been completely pain free so far, though I'm already sporting sore boobs and gassiness. I guess I better get used to it.

Emotionally, I feel great. I'm very proud of how well I've gotten through this so far. I know that we (including the doctor) gave this our very best effort. We have a fair shot, having made it this far. We are optimistic and hopeful. The support I have received here, and through email and phone calls has been phenomenal! I certainly feel so extremely blessed and your thoughts and prayers have helped so much. Brian's grandparents brought over an angel to see us along our journey to parenthood. That was very sweet too!

Brian has been great. He waited on me hand and foot yesterday, and I did try really hard not to take advantage. Though he did gripe a little when every time he got up to do something I made him come over to give me a kiss. Today he is back to work and I am on my own. Well, Molly is here but she really isn't very helpful.


  1. Stay relaxed and in good spirits--that will help this wait go by much easier=) Thinking of you!

  2. Hurrah! Hope you keep on feeling this great! Thinking of you...

  3. I am SO excited for you! I won't tell Molly that you said she isn't being helpful. I bet she THINKS she is being helpful. :-) How many embies did they transfer? I wasn't sure if they put two in, or all three. Yippee!!!

  4. Enjoy these days - I'm sure you are making a nice home for your embies with your peaceful days. I'm glad it went well - I think you and everyone involved gave it their best effot.

    Good job! When I get there, I hope I am able to handle it all as gracefully as you have.

  5. I am glad that you are in such a good spot and that everyone is taking such good care of you. You deserve it! Stay relaxed, stay positive. Easier said than done, I know, but I am rooting for you!

  6. There is nothing better than being in a good spot! PRAYING!
