happiness comes...


...by mail.
Lately, I've been so excited to come home and check my mailbox. 

There have been some fun mail exchanges on Instagram that my friend Chelsea organized. I've been participating in those so it's nice to come home to a sweet, uplifting card or gift from a fellow Instagrammer. 

But nothing lifted my spirits as much as a lovely, thoughtful care package that I received from my blog friend Laura at Laurel Lane. She is beautiful, talented, creative and so amazingly sweet. 
Her gift included: a gemstone hair clip to brighten things up, chap stick for kissable lips, bath salts, candle and a book for ultimate relaxation and distraction. 
I mean, seriously, how sweet is she. Thank you, Laura....from the bottom of my heart. If you looking for more blog friends, she's one you want to have..so stop by and say hello!

On the IVF front, nothing is happening. It feels like it has been the longest cycle ever. I should ovulate in 5 days, start estrace 5 days later and stims 6 days after that. So I'm getting very close to finally seeing some action.

In the meantime, I've just been staying extremely busy with work, doing my weekly acupuncture, taking my poor responder supplements (21 pills per day), drinking my green shakes and trying to get as much exercise as I can.

I never thought I'd say this but....bring on the shots. 
I'm ready to get this show on the road.

Man, isn't estrogen priming the worst? Such a long cycle of nothing! I've been on my estrace almost a week now, should be getting my period any day, so I'm just a bit ahead of you. Never thought I'd say bring on the needles, but I'm with you! Get it done!

Getting so close to the real deal now. Yes, bring on the shots! I hope you get the most fabulous response ever, esp. with all the awesome supplements you're taking and how well you're treating your body.

i felt the same when i was waiting to start my shots. funny how you want to do something that's so dreaded. but it did make it easier once i was able to start them... like less dreadful because at least you're finally to the next step. praying these next days go quickly for you so you can get started!

Aww I absolutely love the stuff the Chels is doing. Your friend is super sweet it's so amazing how packages can totally lift our spirits. Friends, packages, and sweet notes are wonderful kisses from God. Praying for you friend I know the shots aren't going to be fun but I have the same attitude as you...lets get this thing started. Can't wait to hear more about it.
