buy me some peanuts and cracker jacks

Our time in Chicago is coming to a close! We have our transfer tomorrow at 9:20am CT and could not be more excited about it. As of today, all 15 embryos are still dividing...over-achievers from conception that they are. The doctors will spend today grading them (study hard guys!) and select the best two for the transfer. All others will become little Hege icicle-babies, frozen for later. Doesn't that just make you want to knit a pea sized little blanket for them??

We have had a great week in Chicago and loved our "summer vacation" together. Tuesday night we got to have our fancy date night out at the Signature Room at the top of the Sears Tower...all 95 stories up. It was so fun to get dressed up and eat some yummy food. On Wednesday we got to take in the greatest sight seeing trip of all...a Cubs baseball game! It was a sold out crowd at the Cubs vs White Sox and we had an awesome time eating hot dogs, yelling at the teams, and enjoying a day outside.

Tonight we pack up and get the car all ready. After we drive into the city tomorrow and have our embryo transfer, we will hit the road. Which will entail Brian driving to Kentucky (or around there) and me laying down, not making any sudden movements. We'll stop halfway home for the night and then arrive back in NC on Saturday. Can't wait to catch up with all our family and friends and bask in the NC sunshine.

Chicago, Chicago that toddling town
Chicago, Chicago I'll show you around
Bet your bottom dollar you'll lose the blues in Chicago
The town that billy's Sunday could not shut down

NC sunshine indeed! You guys are going to bake your hineys off this Saturday:). It's supposed to be around 100 or so! That's awesome that you got to go to a Cubs game! I love watching live baseball. Hope that you can sleep through most of the drive and take it easy after the embryo transfer! See you very soon!
