Handerson—a sperm vacation might be fun! Does he live someplace nice, at least? Also, it shouldn’t make any difference if she’s had sex with guys before, so don’t worry!
Want2Be—I’m sorry about the BFN. I agree with Krista--#6 was a hard one for some reason. Not sure if I’d let the CMV thing deter me, to tell the truth. I found out that I tested positive for it, so I didn’t need to worry after all, but I think I would have probably just gone ahead anyway, because I’m reckless like that.
Krista—I can’t even imagine doing a triathlon. Have you done many before? I’m glad you’re managing not to think about things too much—a real, good break that you’re enjoying sounds like just the thing to recharge your batteries.
MidwifeSteph—glad things are looking good for this cycle. Can I ask what a naturopath actually DOES when she touches you? My mom sees one and tried explaining it to me once but it didn’t make any sense (she’s not the best explainer).
MrsPP—no, it was perfect timing! We had just headed out the door to the dr. Actually I thought you had texted again and saw that it was from Raynebough, so you both must have been trying to restrain yourselves! Funny that you ran into Jenn—it must have been a nice surprise! I keep waiting to randomly see people around but so far it hasn’t happened yet…
Ad Astra—the second half is always WAY worse than the first!
Nos Reves—Ugh. Hopefully you’ll get a competent tech this time!
Selsevin—glad you found some options! Two isn’t a lot, but at least you have a choice!
Gelly—good to hear from you! I was hoping that everything was coming along just swimmingly—Friday is so soon!!
AFM—well, it turns out that awful stomach cramps and bad headaches and falling asleep on the couch at 7pm are, in fact, all good signs. That, and threadkeeper’s luck does sometimes come through! I got the good news about my BFP (!!!) this afternoon just in time to get some flowers and a children’s picture book to surprise DP with before we went in to see the RE! She cried a little and then we went in to find out what’s next—bloodwork on thurs and Monday to check that the betas are rising (first one was 125 or so) and an ultrasound next Friday. If everything goes well I’ll ‘graduate’ from the RE practice to an OB around the end of the month! We’re trying to be as happy and hopeful and optimistic as possible—it’s one of those situations where I feel like I know too much. But we’re hoping for a sticky bean, and a healthy baby sometime in April. Now I just need some of you to join me in the veggie parade!
