Hi from Chicago

First of all, I'm sorry that I haven't been a good commenter this week. I have been trying to keep up with everyone's blogs, but, my computer time is extremely limited (pretty much can only be online between midnight and 6:00am and sleep has become more of a necessity than blogging!). But, rest assured, I am reading and thinking about everyone!

I am in Chicago, well, Rosemont, IL, to be exact, for the National Sports Collectors Annual National Convention. Glenn and I have a side business dealing in sports and Americana collectibles, primarily from the 19th century, and this is our big show of the year.

So, my week of vacation is being spent in the Rosemont convention center. Jealous, I know! At one point today, Glenn turned to me and said "hey, this is as good as the beach, right?". I think all of the fluorescent lighting may have made the poor boy temporarily delusional!

So, I don't have much happening. I'm reading Unsung Lullabies (purchased from Amazon!) and will write about my reactions later.

Next stop for me is my endometrial biopsy for my coculture. It has to be done 5-12 days after detection of your LH surge. I am tentatively scheduled for the procedure next Tuesday (Clinic C only performs them on Tuesdays and Thursdays), but, in order for that to happen, my pee stick has to show the surge by tomorrow. If not, I guess I'll be rescheduled for Thursday. I'd like to get it over with on Tuesday because we get home from Chicago on Monday and it would be nice to just get it over with the next day.

Even more exciting is that, once I detect that surge, I start counting and begin the estrogen patches 10 days later for IVF #6. It's starting to feel like this IVF is really going to happen and, yes, I'm getting excited for it!
