I have to tell you that I have two of the best best friends a girl could ever ask for! One, AG, is a newer friend in the past year and a half, but a true blessing from God. She is PhD student with me and understands so much about me. When we began our friendship I was floored at how God had put this amazing woman in my life at a time in which I need her so badly. She and her husband have been married about a year and a half and are not trying to have kids yet. Despite being in relatively different places in our lives she is more supportive than you could ever imagine about what we are going through. We see each other daily and she always ask and when I say I don't want to burden her with it she is quick to assure me I am not! What a blessing!
My other best friend is LH and we have been friends for over 5 years now and she was in our wedding and I was there for the birth of all 3 of her wonderful children! She and her husband moved to Georgia a year and a half ago (which is why I need a friend so bad when AG showed up!) so she too could pursue a PhD. It is such an amazing blessing to have these two amazing women in my life who are both going through a PhD program. LH has been there for me through so much. She helped me plan our wedding, even doing my registries at time because I didn't know what I needed! Even though she lives 5 hours away we talk just about everyday, some days multiple times, and it feels as if she is still just down the street. Yesterday I checked the mail and she had sent me the most thoughtful IVF care package!!!! Her twin sister just did IVF and had twins (yay!) and over the Thanksgiving break they put together my IVF care package. She says there is even more to come which is amazing. I am telling you all that I have the best best friends ever!!!!!!!
I have had two doctors appointments in the past week. The first one was the 3 day ultrasound and blood work. I have not gotten the results from the blood work back, but the ultrasound went great! I had 23 follies:-) I was very pumped about this and so was my doctor! This week I had an SIS test done. Not a painful procedure during, but after oh man did I have cramps. The results of the test were "perfect" as my doctor said. Now we just have to sign consent forms on Wednesday and meet with the counselor and wait for AF to show up around Christmas! Yay.
