Surro Files - Ready, Set, Go! ... again

Photo by: hin255 on
It's go time... again!  Saturday I took my last birth control pill and now I'm just waiting on my period.  I'm guessing it should be here tomorrow.  After that I'll go in for monitoring to check my lining at it's thinnest and my hormone levels.  I'll probably do that on Thursday.  That's about it for this week.  Next week I'll start my ovulation predictor kit (OPK) 10 days after my period starts (CD10).  Once I get a positive OPK I will go in for monitoring to confirm ovulation.  Once it's confirmed we'll fly out to CT for the transfer ASAP!  Phew!  It's going to be a quick 3 weeks and I can't wait!!!!

Being that the next cycle is here I've suddenly become stressed.  I really want this to work.  I'll feel horrible if I let Belle and Adam down again.  Stress can't be good for getting pregnant though.  I should be happy, excited, calm.  Think calm thoughts!  Every so often I will close my eyes, breath in, and release the stress.  I'm on a beach.  I can hear the waves.  I can feel the sun.  My toes are curling then releasing the sand that is oh so soft.  Yes, I'm relaxed, happy, and ready for this exciting cycle to begin.  We will do this!
