Lots of Things

First, I saw Julie and Julia last night. Now, I am particularly hard to please, but I had a great time with this movie. It was opening night and the crowd was almost all women and men over 50. I saw with some friends and of course DH. Lots of big laughs (again, it could be because it was opening night, but I thought it was great!)

There was a scene though. A scene where I could've lost it. And it's a scene where even now I'm welling up just thinking about it. I loved that scene. I hated that scene. It was very short and it was a response to Julia Child's sister announcing she was pregnant. I'm curious about what you ladies think, but it was such a real, honest moment. I'm not giving anything away, but Nora Ephron (writer/director) handled it perfectly (at least that's how my DH and I usually handle such news).
I give the movie an "A". I don't rush out to see all of Meryl Streep's movies, but boy, she just was hilarious.

Second, I had another monitoring appointment yesterday. My lining is the same as Monday (8mm). Isn't that weird? It was two different ultrasound tech's, so I'm thinking maybe the Monday gal measured a bit high and that's why there's no change. I was told to expect not to come back until the transfer on Wednesday, but my call yesterday afternoon from the RE's office said that the doc would like another peek at my blood and Uterus tomorrow (Sunday). This blows for two reasons: One, is there something wrong? Two, DH and I were going to go to Catalina on Sunday and Monday, but now we can't because the appointment is right in the middle of the trip and we're going with other people so we're not able to dictate when we leave.

I'll try to post again after I hear about how tomorrow looks. Am I going to be ready for transfer earlier? Did they find something shady they need to look at?
Boy, give a girl and opportunity to worry and she'll take it! I'm going to just enjoy my last few days of being able to move heavy things and go on roller coasters without worrying that I just broke my embryo.
Here's to knocked up in '09! bring it!

Hope everything with your blood is ok. I hate having to wait to hear stuff like that. I would be nervous too. I want to see that movie. I read the book and it sounds like they changed a few things.
