FET Update; Lining Check

Things have been crazy-busy the last couple of weeks.  The house closed and we are constantly getting deliveries of the new furniture, as well as slowly moving all the smaller things over from our current place.  We love the house.

I also had my lining check today in anticipation of the embryo transfer next week.  My lining was 11mm, and looked perfect.  I am waiting on an email from my nurse to tell me when to start PIO and what day/time the transfer will be next week.   I do know it is either Tuesday or Wednesday.

School is going well.  Kids are doing well.  Time is flying by.  I ordered my graduation announcements and regalia yesterday.  It is so close!

Avocado Lime Salad Dressing

I had a great break after my ERA biopsy.  I ate Christmas cookies and drank diet coke.  I used bagged shredded cheese (gasp).  I gave myself until the 13th of January to get my clean-eating act back together since that’s the day I begin Lupron for the start of my upcoming FET with our remaining embryo.  I’m trying to practice taking care of myself in a less unforgiving way.  I allow others so much more grace than I give myself.  I am trying to stick to the idea that I do not need to be perfect to reap the health benefits of all my lifestyle changes.  Even when I was “cheating” I still ate mainly whole, organic, hormone and preservative free foods.  But oh that Diet Coke…I know, I know.  Pure chemical and pure heaven.  La Croix and my Soda Stream are my go-to substitutes.

I had the above-pictured salad tonight.  I tried out a new recipe for salad dressing that I found on Pinterest, of course.  It was really simple to make.  I chucked all the ingredients into my Nutra Ninja and spooned it into glass jelly jars.  26613746_10212059452295080_1376034948_o

You can find the recipe on Pinterest by clicking the link below.  I think next time I will increase the amount of garlic, decrease the amount of yogurt, and maybe add more cilantro.
