Woohoo CD1 (Long) — The Bump
Trouble TTC

Woohoo CD1 (Long)

Hey Ladies,

So, it looks like we are on the road to getting this started again soon after about a two month, rather unplanned break. Nicole start finally, but luckily without the need for any medical intervention, on CD56. That was her longest yet as they are normally 28 - 34 days.

We are still trying to get the specialist to let us know what his plans for blood thinners are, although we are thinking that he will give her the dose of 120mg like we are requesting. That is the dosage she was on when her disorder was unhappy, but the clinic only had her on 30mg while we were doing our FET. It's all in the specialist's hands with the increase.

Meanwhile, her CD3 appointment went well. B/W looks good. I got the job I've been eyeing for a while, so I start in the production (hopefully shipping) dept of our locally own garden center that ships all over the country on Jan 2nd. I've been without work for nearly 5 months, so I'm thrilled! Plus, I'll be bringing in an extra $400 a month (as compared to my unemployment) to be used to paid off our cars!

Additionally, we are getting more excited about becoming foster parents. The training starts in March and we are already signed up to attend. We have been preparing our home for kids which included going through nearly everything we owned. I'm thrilled to announce we will be taking a whole SUV full of donations!!

 Happy New Year!!
