Planning the Observed holiday

Seeing as I am still hivey on my arms, and have swelling ovaries, and have to get to bed early tonight, we aren't really paying attention to Valentine's Day.

This morning, Mr. S was looking at a bill and said, "What is the date?" and I said, "It's the 14th." and it was like there was an empty space in the air... we both rushed and said, "Happy Valentine's Day." Mr. S is a romantic, and got sad that we haven't paid attention to the holiday. But truly, other years, we often go out on a different night, if at all, because the pricey dinners seem silly to us.

And then I remembered that my RE said I may have a glass of wine, between egg retrieval and transfer. So, I am suddenly interested in having a "Valentine's Dad Observed." Complete with nice meal and drink. Hopefully my last alcoholic drink for 9 months!

I am a little nervous about tomorrow. I got an over-anxious worry, this morning, that the trigger shot hadn't worked, and my eggs wouldn't be mature. But, as the day has progressed, I have felt more 'pregnant' so I think it is working. Here's hoping we get at least 10 eggs tomorrow!


  1. GL!!!!!!!! Share a glass of wine and a little romance tonight - you so deserve it! I'll be thinking of you!

  2. I hope next time we hear from you, you will feel and be so much more pregnant. Hope you have many mature amazing quality eggs and wishing you a quick, easy recovery!

  3. Here's to lots of eggies and smooth sailing on these next steps all the way.
    Thank you for your nice comment on my blog, your art as a writer is one I so admire and appreciate.

  4. I hope you enjoyed the glass of wine - may it be your last for a long while. Good luck!!

    OH OH OH, my word verification is pregiou. SERIOUSLY! This is a good omen!!!!
