Mondays?! It's my least favorite day of the week (unless it is a holiday). Thank you MLK Jr for next Monday. I had completely forgotten that we have a 3 day weekend coming up. I went to schedule a meeting with some guys in Switzerland and a Brit reminded me that it was a holiday. How silly did I feel? I got over it quickly.

Tomorrow is the first estrogen patch to build up for the next IVF CD1, which is expected in the next 8 to 10 days. I'm not looking forward to the shots but I am ready to get our 2nd IVF started. I got all my drugs for this cycle on Saturday, except my dr didn't call in any P4 suppositories. I'll need to ask the nurse tomorrow. I'm going to be stimming with follistim and menopur (never used before) and I'm hoping this is a good stim drug cocktail for me. I'm aiming to outperform my last IVF attempt in which I produced 4 good sized follies but only got 2 eggs at retrieval.

DH and I had a restful weekend and on Sunday his aunt and uncle came into NY harbour on the maiden voyage of the Queen Victoria. It was very cool as all three of the British Queens were in the harbour, Queen Victoria, Queen Elizabeth II and Queen Mary II. His aunt and uncle are cruising around the world and not getting back at West Hampton port until late April. I am totally jealous, DH and I have decided that when our future children are out of college we are going to take trips like this. We may be 90 years old but it will still be a fabulous trip. Anyway, we took them out to brunch at Tribeca Grill (owned by Robert De Niro) and it was great. I really like that place. Worth going if anyone is coming to NYC.

Restaurants... I love to eat good food and there are SO many great places to eat in NYC. Some of my favorites at the moment (in no particular order):
Fig and Olive
Noodle Pudding

Ok, I have not done anything productive tonight except update this blog. I haven't even unloaded the dishwasher. BAD

Hello from a fellow NYC girl! Hearth in the East Village and Perilla are also yummy! Good luck with your IVF#2! I used Follistim and menopur for my first IVF, I am gearing up for my IVF#3 and now use Gonal F and menopur. Only complaint is menopur STINGS! Ouch!
