Holy thick lining, Batman!

I had a lining check today and I'm already measuring 9.6 with a triple stripe. (That's good!) Our transfer isn't for another 2 weeks! However, Andrea (IM) is doing really well with her meds too, so there is a chance we could transfer a little early. I am getting super excited!

School is just a few weeks away and I'm trying to get myself psyched up for it. I think I'm ready to face it head on. Hopefully I'll do better this semester than last.

I started my new job last week and I really like it so far. I think it will be a great job for me since I'm PRN and choose when I work. The nurse manager said she'll have enough shifts for me to work full time if I need/want to, so that makes me feel secure. I don't know that I'll be able to quite work that much (see above), but we'll take it a day at a time.

Hopefully I'll be posting about positive HPT tests, ultrasound pictures, and straight As soon!

The roller coaster of life...what a fun ride!

Well my life is happy right now. We got a new van the other day and, for the most part, I love it. There are a few things that need to be made better; but once it's all fixed, I'll be a happy girl. So in the past couple months, we've moved to a new house, sold and bought a new van, and I was hired for a new job.

I finally got a nursing assistant job at the hospital I already work for. I start training Monday and I'm very excited. If I do well and they like me, they're likely to hire me as an RN when/if I ever get there. :) That means this weekend is my last weekend at the least for now. I can't say it's forever because I've said that before...and here I sit working at the hotel as I type this.

I also start Lupron on Monday for the surrogacy. I'm really hoping things go smoother for us this time and we actually get to transfer...and have it work! As surprised as I am to say this, I kinda hope it's twins again. Am I crazy? Perhaps. But I have my reasons (yes, there's more than one). I know it's all in God's hands though and He has a plan. We shall see what that is very soon! We are hoping to transfer on August 11th (one month from tomorrow)!

Once the transfer takes place, it seems like life will go back to normal in every other way. School starts for the kids on August 19th and I start back on August 23rd. I don't feel ready to go back just yet. I'm still a little burned out. Hopefully these last few weeks will pull me out of that.

So our life has changed a lot lately...and it seems to be all for the better. Now I'm just hoping we can change my IP's lives for the better soon too.
