Day two of BCPs

It's official - I am on the way back to popping pills, poking myself with needles and getting my va jay jay wanded with the ultra-sound stick!!!
The doc emailed me that my blood work showed I could start the BCPs yesterday ( no numbers of course - I never get numbers!!!) It probably means my ovaries are in sleep mode and nothing is happening there anyway so lets really lock em down.
I go in for an U/S and consult on May 15th. We are doing a trial cycle.
I have no idea what to do to prepare for the real one. I called the nurse at the BBBF today and left her a message but did not get any more info. I know I need to pick a donor and get this show on the road. I think the doc is supposed to give me more info when I have the ultra-sound and he sees what is really going on in the velvety depths of my uterus. No idea if it is velvety in there - but I know I am supposed to be growing a lovely thick cushiony lining at some point so the embie can bed down there and get snuggled in.
Anyway, I will call the egg place soon and try to figure out what the next step is.
So that's my exciting news. Oh and I joined Weight Watchers today and went to my first meeting. It was like a cross between an AA meeting and a Tupperware party.

Hooray! I'm so glad things are underway. One thought about choosing an egg donor -- when you see one or more donors that you might consider, ask about that donor's track record. They can usually tell you if the donor has had successful births. It's just an indication of good eggs. Of course it doesn't guaranty anything, but I was really happy to learn that our egg donor's eggs have produced at least two sets of twins!

How on earth did I miss this post? Hope all is still going well. I had to laugh at the WW analogy.

Thanks for feeling protective today. Somehow the solidarity helps.
