And We Are Off...

This morning I got up bright and early(thank you Eliza) and made my way to the nearest hospital for my blood draw. As I mentioned last week, I have a lot of things to get in order to try to figure out what is going on.

The RE is about an hour away so they allowed me to go to the nearest hospital lab to get my blood drawn. I wasn't thrilled about having to take Eliza with me, but I know she needs to learn how to be quiet in public so she tagged along. This lab is first come first serve, so no appointment, I was going in blind. When we got there Eliza found an Elmo book and plopped down on the floor. She was AMAZING. She was quiet and just flipped through the pictures. She made sure to say Hi to everyone who walked by.

I was called back to our room and Eliza waddled behind me. She climbed up onto a chair and the nurse gave her stickers. I told her mommy needed to do something and she needed to stay right there and be quiet, she said "k"(there is no way she knew what she said). She sat and watched as tube after tube was filled, and talked with the nurse and told her all the different animal sounds that she knows. We were all set and she jumped down and said bye.

That's it. She is such a little kid now. She listens in public(not so much at home with all of her toys distracting her), she is polite, and loves people. We took the elevator up 3 floors to say hi to my Aunt who works there and then headed home.

When I got home I worked on a wreath while she slept then I called to schedule my HSG, hopefully I will hear back soon on when that will be so Mark can take off work.

As I sat here reading the gossip columns I came across the GREATEST story ever!!

Giuliana & Bill Rancic Expecting a Child Via Surrogate

 I have followed their story for years and have had heart break after heart break for them. I am so incredibly happy, and just the hope I needed today!

I will update when my procedure is scheduled. Sorry I have been lacking on tutorials and crafts lately and this has been kind of heavy....just a little preoccupied.
