Let the Mock begin!

Today is CD2 and I began my mock cycle yesterday. It is pretty boring actually - 1 Es.trace pill once a day for 5 days and then I gradually ramp it up until my U/S on Feb 3rd. At the end of this I have nothing but an endometrial biopsy to look forward to. Fun stuff. Hopefully it will bring some answers and then we can get the FET show on the road!

Still feeling good, still cooking everyday, still trying to be more active. Weigh in tomorrow! I am glad to hear some of you tried the soup recipe!

Thinking seriously about making a pretty major life change, but that's all I'm saying for now. We really want to be sure and have a good plan in place before making any major announcements. I will keep you posted as it evolves... (it is NOT IF related). Send some thoughts and prayers our way - we have a lot to consider.

Good luck with the mock cycle. I really enjoy reading your blog. As I start my own ivf journey--I have read your blog for "what to expect" and "advise"--so thanks. You have a wonderful way of writing--and I am also married to an Irish guy. Good luck with your big decision--whatever it may be...

Yay for mock cycles! Ask for anasthesia for the biopsy -- it makes a WORLD of difference. Felt like a pap the second time :)

Prayers coming your way for the life change -- I know you and Sean will make the right decision.

YAY that you started your mock cycle!! For me it is always good to be "doing" something even if it is boring estrace pills ;-)

I am also intrigued to find out your life decision. Good luck with it! I am always wrenched with indecision with that type of thing but you seem very calm, cool and collected and that is awesome! I know you will make the right choice.
