Chris and I went down south this morning and got the IVF process kicked off.

We had to sign a bunch of legal paperwork in relation to ownership of any frozen embryos. We decided if I died, he gets them (with no pressure to use them, permission to destroy them). If he dies, I get them. If we both die - they are destroyed (in order to avoid any strangeness in passing them along to our family who would probably be hard pressed to figure out what to do with them). And if we split up - I'm keeping them but he is totally off the hook for any financial liability were I to use them to make some babies. All seems pretty reasonable, right?

I went and got blood drawn and had an ultrasound. I have 20 follicles!! Go me!

My estrogen is low enough that I am cleared to start the medications tomorrow.
