back in the saddle

... or at least in my typical time zone. I returned last night from a 5 day trip to see the fam in honor of my grandfather's 90th birthday. It was nice to check out of my normal life for a while, even if I did have to dodge half a dozen "Isn't it baby time for you two yet?" inquiries. I thought I was immune to such questioning on accounta' my lack of heterosexuality, but not in my family, which I am actually grateful for despite any temporary discomfort it might have caused this weekend.

Roughly one week until AF arrives, at which point we... um... wait again. Big checkpoint there, huh? Her arrival will start the official game clock though, and three weeks later, we will start Lupron. This week's task is ordering meds. I need to find out what (if anything) my clinic will be able to furnish me with in the way of samples or returns and make a final pharmacy decision for the balance. Right now, I'm thinking Schrafts as their Follistim price is competitive with the other pharmacies but their Lupron is $99/kit instead of $200. It seems somewhat futile being remotely interested in a savings of a couple hundred bucks when our total drug bill is likely to be $3000+, but every penny counts. Regardless, bargain-hunting is in my genes - I couldn't quit it if I tried.

You always have great stories about your and M's family. It sounds like they are so supportive. Sorry for the nosy, stinging questions.

Hope you find all the great bargains and the next wait phase goes quickly!

I love your family - it's the kind of family I want to create with our children.
