What I'm Listening To

John Mayer's Heart of Life
I usually hate John Mayer. Ok, well I don't hate him, but he's so annoying. I heard this song and it reminded me of J. It sounds like something he would say to me when I found out someone else was pregnant, or when IVF #1 failed. He's the best. My J- not John Mayer, that is. Mayer's just ok.

My favorite lyrics:
You know, it's nothing new
Bad news never had good timing
Then, circle of your friends
Will defend the silver lining

Pain throws your heart to the ground
Love turns the whole thing around
No it won't all go the way it should
But I know the heart of life is good.

Fun's Carry On
I'm really lucky to have just about the best little group of interwebz friends EV-ER. 75 women who have stuck by me through all kinds of bullshit. They are pretty amazing. My friend Kati (you can find her blog here) made a little tribute video for our 75 and this song was in it. It's just about the best song for a sunny day with all your windows down and singing at the top of your lungs. Wanna see the video? It's super mega awesome. Click HERE

My favorite lyrics:
If you're lost and alone
And you're sinking like a stone
Carry On
May your past be the sound 
Of your feet upon the ground
Carry On

PUPO. Again

Introducing Mary Lou Reton (on the left) and Reggie Boop (on the right).

We transferred these beauties today- Mary Lou is a highly graded expanded blast (a gold medal winner, clearly) and Reggie Boop is just a hair behind Mary Lou. Transfer went perfectly and both my RE and the doc that did the transfer said we should be very optimistic. Beta is scheduled for May 14th. I'll never make it until then. I'll b\pee on all the sticks long before then.

All 8 were mature. Seven fertilized. SEVEN! As of yesterday- they were all 4 cells and growing normally. We were pushed to a 5 day transfer on Tuesday. HELLO RELIEF! So much better than last cycle.
