I received my calendar last week and also started taking my birth control to help regulate me on Brandi’s cycle. I should get my medicine for the shots this Friday and then July 3 is when I have to start giving myself shots with Dustin’s help since two of them have to be given to me in my lower back. We are still on for July 27th or 28th for the egg retrieval. Once they retrieve the eggs the doctors will do their magic and then place them in my sister three days later.

I can’t even express how much a want this to work for my sister. I have total faith in God that he will take care of all us. She means the absolute world to be. Words can’t express how much a love her! I just ask everyone to keep praying for us, it really does mean a lot.

Great NEWS!!

Good News! Looks like we will still stay on the same schedule for the egg retrieval which will happen around July 27th. Today they took my IUD out and has soon I start my cycle I will be put on birth control for a month and start taking my Lupron shots. Then in July I will start taking the other two hormone shots to help over stimulate my ovaries and by the end of July they should be able to retrieve the eggs and then implant them in my sister.

Please keep us all in your prayers!

Minor Glitch

Just found out yesterday that they are going to have to take my IUD out during this process. I'm on the Mirena and absolutely love it. But Brandi's doctor said it has to come out for a few months because he thinks it won't let me make a lot of eggs and the goal is to make as many at possible.

I kind of figured this would have to take place since it is releasing a small amount of hormone. Now I'm just waiting to hear from my doctor about how the insurance will cover to have another one replaced. I have really great insurance and it covered the first 100 percent, I know amazing! She thinks she can justify it and have it covered again that way my sister doesn't have to pay the full cost to have another put in me and trust me I'm getting another one put in because taking a pill everyday would not happen. Since Dustin and I don't want to have another one for 3 or 4 more years, we don't want any accidents happening.

Don't get me wrong I love being a mommy but we want Thomas to have his time with mommy and daddy without turning his world upside down with a little sister...HA! Plus I really want to concentrate on my career for a couple of years. But don't worry we will have another one just not anytime soon!

The downfall is this sets mys sister back a couple of months. So more than likely they won't be retrieving the eggs from me until August or September. Please keep praying for us!

Just look at my cute little monster!!
