RPL tidbit

The meds are arriving and the travel plans are in the works! This cycle is happening and I feel pretty good about it. Mentally and physically. It is a 50/50 shot at success so I am trying not to weigh heavily on the end result, but to take it all in day by day. Sort of an old (IF) age saying, but it does work! One day at a time equates to some sanity!

We booked our travel and it is exciting as we have decided to bring our puppies along with us! They will travel the friendly skies with us and explore what Colorado has to offer in our down time between appointments. It is going to be a family affair! 

Next step: estrogen priming begins on the 27th - NEXT WEEK! Eek!
