Baby Bee Plan is a Go

We went in for my baseline ultrasound and everything looks good for our August 25 transfer! I have to admit I'm totally overwhelmed. I have blood draws, ultrasounds, and tons of medications all mapped out for me to take this month. I have to stop exercising after next Monday (not happy about that) and just signed my life away to buy all the medication out-of-pocket (thanks insurance). It will all be worth it. I know it will.

It looks like with all of my treatments and costs that I won't be able to make my high school reunion, which I was really looking forward to. I haven't seen my family since Christmas, so I really wanted to go back, but it looks like it won't work.

Here are the meds I'll be taking:
Baby Aspirin
Estradiol Valerate Shots
Progesterone Shots

I'll have three days of bedrest after the transfer, which my doctor's office calls "Princess Time. Cringing...
My first beta test will be September 2, but the most accurate one will be on September 5th. So that's D-Day. September 5. I am just praying for an early birthday present (my bday is September 14).

It's a lot to take in and a lot of work, but I keep hoping that in three weeks I'll finally be pregnant. This will all work and we'll finally get to be parents. So if you'd keep sending good thoughts and prayers our way we'd appreciate all of them!


  1. It's so sooon!! And omg, "Princess time?" Haha, a definite cringe. Sending buckets and buckets of love your way!

  2. I just looked at my nurse and said, "What the hell is princess time?" She told me it's the best part, where I get treated like a princess. I almost threw up. And I am the worst at any type of laying down/bedrest. Especially if it's called "Princess Time".

  3. Ughhhh princess time makes me want to barf.

    As soon as I realized it was August I immediately thought of you. I am saying so many prayers that this goes perfectly well. I want this for you so so bad. Good luck, fingers crossed, positive vibes, many prayers... all coming your way.

    Keep us updated all along the way!!

  4. Princess Time? Oh dear god.. LOL. I totally thought of you when I realized it was August. I may have even thought, "It's Baby Bee Month!" And how did I not know that we share the same birthday? We do. So awesome. Fingers and toes crossed and tons of prayers for you guys.. We'll be thinking about you!!
