Wedding Bells and Sonograms!

Yep, thats exactly what my weekend consisted of!

One of my besties got married this weekend and both Husband and I were in the wedding- it was here in Dallas, so it was nice to get away for 2 days, but not have to actually worry about traveling.

The wedding extravaganza started Friday evening with the rehearsal and rehearsal dinner. The dinner was held at a nice steakhouse in downtown and we enjoyed some yummy steak, potatoes, cheesecake and creme brulee!

Here we are with the excited couple- soon to be Mr and Mrs!!

All of the girls- after a full day of making ourselves pretty :) The theme was a winter wedding so notice our fur wraps over the dresses!


Me and Husband in the limo on the way to the reception- yes, my eyes looked HUGE all night, thanks to some fake lashes (not sure if that was a good thing or bad thing)


Having some fun at the reception :)



My weekend then ended with a very early doctor appointment Sunday morning. The good news is that the sonogram was neither good nor bad. This is what we saw:



If you look carefully in the upper left corner you will see that the tech noted that there are 17 follicles they are watching- yes, 17! And this is only on one ovary- there were about 20 on the other side. While this may sound like wonderful news, it can actually end up being bad at some point. Here's our dilemma: without the injections I do not ovulate at all on my own, but with the injections we end up with 20 follicles per ovary that start to grow- which is not safe. Not to mention I would prefer to not be the next celebrity mom for having 20+ kids!
So I'll be going back bright and early tomorrow for another sono and more bloodwork (as usual) and in the meantime we will just hope that the injections work their magic!

Holy moly follies! You sure you don't want to have 20+ children? Haha. Not cool, but you probably could get your own tv show out of that. ;) Good luck with everything!
