second time around

So, I've been on Lup.ron for about a week and a half. Started the estrogen patches two days ago (which resulted in a KILLER headache for awhile, so hallelujah for ibu.profen).

It still seems very odd. I'd like to think of something more profound than, "odd," but there you have it; surreal, perhaps, that I have to put my toddler to bed in time to get down to the bathroom and inject myself with the same medication that helped us get to her in the first place. I keep thinking that I'm in a dream, and someone is going to wake me up and tell me I never had a baby, that we have to do it all over again.

But then I go into the family room and trip over three baby dolls and her beloved play lawn mower, and reality comes back.

Transfer date is set for September 13. Not much more exciting news here (other than the emerging potty interest by above-mentioned child WOOHOO). Will keep you posted.
