Ok sorry it took so long we were gone all day long then I got busy when I got home and had a headache and had to fix dinner and my oldest neice came to visit to get her late birthday present I made her (fishing box she wanted)

Ok so my visit went well everyone was very nice and very helpful. the nurse answered all of our questions and said to call if we have anymore. I am number 11 on the waiting list but some are already prego and 3 couples are looking at sets of embryos and 2 of those couples are looking into larger sets of embryos. 2 people on the list are not looking for donor embryos at this present time. So they say there is about a 1 month time frame per couple to get a donor could be sooner. Also I can skip ahead in line for a donor due to some people are not looking at this time. She said she doesn't think it will take 11 months she said it could even be maybe end of summer we could be presented with a donor embryos to choose from. She would present us with what they have to offer like if it's a small set and if we are ok with it then we can use those or we can pass and wait for a larger set. Keeping my fingers crossed it happens sooner than later. The nurse said it will happen sooner rather than later!! oh she said the would transfer 2 embryos but depending on the age and quality of the embryo's we could transfer more if we wanted. So I guess I'll have to be thinking about that when time comes.

Ok to the ultrasound and sono he tried to insert the cath and had an issue getting it in because I'm a bit crooked inside no big deal I told him my body just doesn't like to work like I tell it to!! LOL.. I have scoliosis so I told him that is why I'm crooked...LOL. Ok so he had to use a smaller cath and finally got it to go in and Wow that really smart when he had to get passed the crooked part I even said OUCH!! Then it was ok. he was as gentle as he could be so it's all good. He said everything looked good inside so no problems

Talked to the nurse about the meds I would be using and she told me to go to there website and they have a how to do shots videos that will teach me how to do my own shots and stuff she said the videos are great and very easy to understand. I did call the insurance company and I got great news all of the meds they want to put me on are covered so I won't have to pay full price!! I was so excited to hear that!!

so that is the update for today. I'm so excited it's finally going to happen.

Thank you to all you wonderful ladies for the great support I have recieved here I appreciate everyone!!
