IVF CD5 and More Summer Camp Goodness

Last night, Night 2 of injections, was 2 of Bravelle and 1 of Menopur (spelling?). Ultrasound and bloodwork checks are tomorrow. I can't wait to see what's cooking inside. Their first estimate of retrieval is somewhere between July 17 - 19. We'll see how that goes. I know I'm usually an early ovulator, even when on injectibles and with these megadoses, who knows. Other than that I've been really good. I did break down and have a half decaf coffee yesterday morning at work. But I've been taking my vitamins and eating healthy. Next step is getting some exercise. I made pesto last night to have for dinner tonight. I'll post that recipe later today.

Phoebe had a rough day at camp yesterday. They want her to play a crocodile during a song they will perform on Friday "Never Smile at a Crocodile" from Peter Pan. She's the only one that gets to wear the crocodile costume and she has lines! Oh my goodness! She didn't want this part at all. I personally think she wasn't crazy about being in the spotlight, but "her teachers are making her do it" (these are her words, not mine!). I think they want her to work on being more comfortable performing solo than just with the group and this is their first babystep with her. I tried talking to her the whole ride home from work, but it didn't help. She went in to watch TV when we got in and I talked to DH on the side. He went and talked to her alone - I told him I was going to completely stay out of this conversation. I don't know what he said, but she came back into the kitchen where I was and had done a total 180. She was excited to be the crocodile! Couldn't wait to chase her tail on her costume, etc. Thank goodness for tag-team parenting!

Oooo--pesto!! I've only attempted to make my own once and it didn't come out very good.

You have to post pics of the croc costume!

Yummy yummy pesto! Hey, I think we're having that too for supper, especially it looks like the heavens will be opening later on today.....

Phoebe will make an AWESOME croc-that's one of my favorite numbers from Peter Pan-I teach it to my 3rd graders, and they always love to sing it...please post pics!!

Glad that the stimming is going well so far-hope those eggs are cooking away!

Uh oh, am I messing up by drinking decaf? That's what I switched to when I cut out regular. Let me know if I'm doing something that will hurt my chances...

Go, follies, Go! Pesto sounds wonderful. I have a recipe for roasted red pepper pesto with almonds that is fabulous, will have to post. Love the tag team parenting, you guys sound like a great team. Break A Leg, Phoebe, The Crocodile Song is totally my favorite song from Peter Pan! Can't wait to see the pictures. Hugs and High 5, Martha
