When she showed me the pictures of the blastocysts I started to get dreamy. I could just imagine my little blastocysts developing in the petri plate. All sweet and multi-cellular. It is kind of fitting with me being a biologist that my own baby will be conceived in a lab, incubated, cultured. It is what I do every day. So I find it kind of cool. And my doctor didn't mind me asking her all sorts of dorky embryology questions.
Anyway, I'm really looking forward to this. I mean, I thought I would dread it. Like it was the last hope or something. But I really feel like this is going to work for us. And I can't wait to get started.
It also gives me approximately 6 weeks to get my butt in gear and lose some weight. So in addition to the belly dancing, fertility yoga, and jogging with my #1kiddo Bailey (my dog), I will be actively dieting. Nothing severe. Just trying to go down 10lbs. We'll see what happens. But it will give me something else to focus on while I wait wait wait until I get to start the birth control pill.
