IVF Cycle

So we have officially started IVF. Did my lovely ultrasound and proceedures for that. A little painful but not horrible. Then I was given a list of 12 meds to take at certain times and an instruction class on shooting myself up. Yeah Mike just sat there in awe for some of them lol. Kinda funny how men have no idea what we have to go through - it was eye opening for him.

I started my provera to bring on the aweful period. It should be short though and I should have it by thursday at the latest. Then I started Metformin and shooting myself in the leg with Leuprolide. Then when AF does arrive, we add more meds (shots) daily and do bloodwork and ultrasounds. I have a calendar to go by cause otherwise Id be totally lost!! lol

So far the shots haven't been bad. The leuprolide goes in my thigh, I was so scared that I had my gf do it for me without looking. After I realized I over freaked out, I think I'll try the next one myself lol. The metformin is ok, taking it at night 500mg extended release - then each week it goes up til I'm taking 1500 total. Its supposed to help with the insulin issue with pcos and fertility - even though I'm not diabetic.

So day 1 of shots done... only a couple more weeks to go!

Forgiven - 3rd book in Demon Trappers Daughter series

Just finished Forgiven... not a bad book. I finished it rather quickly so it kept my attention well. LOTS going on. A little more demon fighting than in the last books. Like all girls Riley gets tricked by a boy and there's a love triangle. Beck of course loves her, we know that by now but Riley is still clueless to it. She sees her reanimated father and you would have never have guessed who summoned him from his grave. Kinda freaks me out the author just mentions him so casually. Some cool things happen in the book - her bracelet changes her looks, the hunters are looking for her and hold Beck til she comes and turns herself in, Simon helps steakout the mysteriously bad holy water bottles and so much more... even a kiss or two!... I liked it.

The days are growing darker for 17-year-old demon trapper Riley Blackthorne. With her father’s reanimated body back safely, Beck barely speaking to her because of a certain hunky Fallen angel, and a freshly-made deal with Lucifer, she has enough on her hands to last a normal teenage lifetime. Though she bargained with Heaven to save his life, her ex-boyfriend Simon has told the Vatican’s Demon Hunters that she’s working with Hell. So now she’s in hiding, at the top of everyone’s most-wanted list.

But it’s becoming clear that this is bigger than Riley, and rapidly getting out of control:  something sinister is happening in Atlanta… or someone. The demons are working together for the first time ever and refusing to die, putting civilians in harm’s way. Riley thinks she might know who’s behind it all, but who’s going to believe her? Caught between her bargain with Heaven and her promise to Lucifer, Riley fears the final war is coming – and it may be closer than anyone thinks…

Unleashed - Wolf Springs Chronicles

New series... ok so the cover caught my eye first. Then its about wolves, not vampires so I was ready for a change lol. Kat gets shipped off after her moms death to a man she doesn't know who is her grandfather. He seems strict at first - can't go out alone, never after dark - and a little odd with all the dead animals all over. They live so far back and deep in the woods. And of course enters the dream boat lol - gramps has set her up and has a great hunk Trick (yes that's his name) - he's to drive her to school and back. Then of course she goes to school and meets Cordelia and instantly falls for her cousin Justin - its that instant attraction and passion, even a stolen kiss - but he's not available. Plus I'm cheering for Trick, I like their relationship. Cordelia and Kat get close, her dad's an insane ass for a reason but you don't find that out til later, as well as her crazy sisters. Kat gets attacked by a wolf, 2 girls have ended up dead and soooo much more - its a good book with lots of twists - so I can't say much more with out giving it all away :)

Katelyn McBride's life changed in an instant when her mother died. Uprooted from her California home, Katelyn was shipped to the middle of nowhere, Arkansas, to her only living relative, her grandfather. And now she has to start over in Wolf Springs, a tiny village in the Ozark Mountains.

Like any small town, Wolf Springs has secrets. But the secrets hidden here are more sinister than Katelyn could ever imagine. It's a town with a history that reaches back centuries, spans continents, and conceals terrifying truths about everyone. And Katelyn McBride is about to change everything.

Broken families, ageless grudges, forced alliances, and love that blooms in the darkest night—welcome to Wolf Springs.
