On The Road- A Very Short Update

This is our last night in DC. Today we got to be tourists which was nice. The Lincoln Memorial blew my mind.

The appointment with the egg donation clinic went well. I am coming back home with a Bag 'O Meds that is so big I had to buy and extra tote bag. *Hope I can get all this on the plane in my carry on luggage. I'm also bringing back two big boxes of healthy pop microwave  popcorn because you can't get the low fat version in London. Interesting combo,,,,,, injectible fertility meds, pre-natal vitamins, and microwave popcorn. I am not thrilled about having to "jab" myself in the leg with a 1 inch needle almost every day, that's for sure. : (

I will post more details once I'm back home. But I am feeling very optimistic that this is going to work.


  1. An interesting combination for sure! Will airport security give you any hassle for bringing it in your carryon?

    I am optimistic for you too. :)

  2. I don't know anyone who had ever done this, so forgive my ignorance, but are the meds to help your body accept the embryo? I have to be on two heparin shots a day when I get pg again... not looking forward to those in the tummy, but I welcome them at the same time. Praying all goes well for you! Keep us posted!

  3. Optimism is just the start.. a healthy start. I believe your positive thoughts are just the beginning of a good healthy pregnancy. (hormones and all)Glad that you can get a good bag o' popcorn before you head back home.

  4. Glad to hear your appt went well and looking forward to hearing all about it :) Have a safe journey home with all your goodies xoxo

  5. Glad to know you're feeling optimistic. Wishing all the best for you in this adventure.

  6. Sending so many positive thoughts your way & holding hope that you will have success with this cycle!
    Enjoy the popcorn:)

  7. I'm so glad your appointment went well...and that you got to play tourist. I love DC. Are you starting your cycle soon? We might be on a similar schedule.

    Best of luck on your flight home.

  8. Reading along with a smile at all of things you are doing that you must have missed in the UK (food wise!). I do look forward to the details and am so happy to see some light shining on your path...

  9. LauraJane, yes they let me bring them all in my carry-on.

    Molly, yes the meds are to sych my cycle with the egg donor's so the egg can implant correctly.

    Princess WBM, I have to do an HSG and a mock cycle first so won't be starting for several months.
