We arrived safely in Denver

We arrived on-time around 11am this morning in Denver. It is COLD, but it will be warming up over the next few days. The good news: we found somewhere that was open serving Thanksgiving dinner. The food was yummy and definitely hit the spot! Thanks Christi for the recommendation. For all current/future CCRM patients, it was Mimi's Cafe located off Park Meadows Drive in Lone Tree. They also have a great looking breakfast menu!

We have to be at CCRM tomorrow around 11:30am. We have to sign consent forms, get my E2 and P4 b/w drawn, and I'm also doing acupuncture pre-transfer. We don't know which doc yet will be doing the transfer (I forgot to ask yesterday), but our transfer will take place at 1:45pm. Then, I'll be doing acupuncture post-transfer as well. Throwing in every chance possible for success here, so I didn't pass on the acupuncture.

We are both so excited! Hope all of you had great turkey days!!

Woo Hoo!!! Glad you're there! I did the acu, too. Couldn't hurt, could it? Wasn't exactly relaxing tho, b/c I had to PEE the entire time.

Did you know Mimi's is owned by Bob Evans? Random useless trivia...

I'm so glad you made it safe and sound and had a great meal too!! I will be thinking of you tomorrow and saying a little prayer for your embabies.

Good luck, Jill!!!!

Best of luck with the transfer!

If you happen to go back to Mimi's, I have some very fond memories of their muffins. That seems like a good comfort food while you take it easy for a few days.

Glad you made it safe...looks like Mimi's is popular amongst us CCRMer's - Alex and I went there is well, and, your right, their breakfast is to-die-for.

Best of luck tomorrow!

Jill, I'm soooooo jealous but thrilled for you to be in Denver! And on Thanksgiving - such a good omen! :)

Thanks for posting on "my next destination." Gosh I hope I'm not being foolishly optimistic but I really feel great about a DE cycle - that it'll definitely work out. Yes, I have definitely heard of a person here or there that isn't successful for for the most part, a fresh DE cycle at CCRM is as close to a sure thing as anything can be.

I remember Dr. Surrey saying to me that when it's an anonymous donor the number is closer to 90% birth rate (dips down to 80-85% because the known donors are in there too - people who aren't always the "best" candidates for donation but whom are chosen by the recipient(s)).

Gosh I hope my enthusiasm and confidence doesn't bite me on the behind!

Anyhoo, back to you - I will be watching closely and can't wait to see belly pics posting in the coming months!
