Keep Calm & Cruise On

So, for those that do follow my blog, again thank you…and I’m sorry.  I didn’t blog over the last week because we took the kids on a Spring Break cruise.  (I would have posted that we were going, but I get the heebie-jeebies about putting that information on the Internet before we leave town.)  I’ll post more on the cruise later with some pictures.  It was fabulous, and we successfully impressed two teenagers and one tween.  Go us!  Not posting tonight, though.  I have some sort of a sinus infection, so Todd and I are resting, relaxing, and cuddling.  We were in the car for 12 ½ hours yesterday.  Can you imagine having to drive that much in one day?!  Me, either!!  (Todd did all the driving, duh!)  J  I love my hubby!!

Anyway, I have great IVF news!  Mary Kathryn called and said that my HSG test on March 4 showed a normal uterus and good uterine cavity.  This Thursday, March 28, we will have our “mapping” appointment.  This is where they will take measurements of my uterus and cervix, do a dress rehearsal for embryo transfer, run some labs, and give us a checklist & bunch of consent forms.  I’m so excited that I have a feeling the next few days will drag on.  I think that at this point, we’ll really have an idea of when we’ll be getting pregnant and what I can and can’t do for the next several months.  We’ve been putting some plans on hold until we have this appointment, so I hope this will give us some much anticipated information.  Fingers crossed that the cervix looks long enough for two embryos!  At this point, that is my biggest concern.


  1. Wonderful news!! Thinking of you and Toddy this week! xoxo

  2. Oh, I love that Heather calls him "Toddy" too! But, just to let you know, my fingers and toes are crossed!
