Hi ladies!! i hope your days are going well today. I'm so happy it's Sat. It's a little chilly in NYC. Nothing like the incoming fall weather to get the blood flowing (hopefully to the uterus), huh?
Aura, YAH to the 11 fertilized eggs! I hope that they continue to grow well and that you will have many embies to choose from and a few to freeze. My hope is that you will be able to choose from your DH's embies too but like you said, we just all want a baby and the baby will be both of yours regardless of the genetics. I can't wait to hear from you on Monday and i hope you get a 5 day transfer! As for work, I'm now of the frame of mind that work is backseat to this process. i get guilty too sometimes, though, when I have to turn down work projects because it's cutting too close to my transfer date but i'm over the guilt...for now. haha
Tenzin, you're starting soon!!! Yah! Please let us know how everything goes and if you have any questions throughout the process. I think that if we haven't gone through it ourselves, we'll know someone who has or we're all quite good at researching. hahah most likely, we've already faced the question anyway. :o) As for the long process, isn't it amazing?! I think my first IVF cycle was about 7 weeks from start to finish. It's doubly cruel because we're so hyperaware of the time...so the fact that all our cycles are now longer because of the process really makes me start pulling my hair out. hehe. My FET cycle has been even longer! I think it's about 7 weeks from day 1. And yes, today was my last pill. haha i seriously considered not even taking the pill today but i was good and decided to follow the orders. sigh. Hopefully, i can start bleeding in a timely manner! Had an iced coffee today and i'm thinking it's going to be my last one for a while because I will start my estrogen soon and then it's time for clean living.
Blue, ugh to having to live away from home for so long! DH and i have decided we have a 10 day rule. After 10 days, we start getting really anxious and wanting to go home. it's so funny because i live in the arguably most exciting city in the world. But DH and I just love being home. We rarely go out at all and we just like to sit on the couch with me reading while lying on him and him playing on his cell phone (he loves his iphone...can't wait until Sprint gets an iphone!!) But YAH to ordering your drugs! It always makes me feel like things are moving forward. I can't wait until you and Tenzin get closer and closer to the retrieval and transfer. I just want everyone to get a BFP!!!!
Tenzin, it's easy to be positive when I'm surrounded by such wonderful people. I always feel like good people will eventually get what they are supposed to. I think we're all wonderful, supportive women and soon, we WILL get our babies and our dreams. It will happen
Gelly, I'm so happy to see you back on here! Good luck at Sher- if anyone can do it, they can. I will update your blurb to state that you are looking at possible ivf sometime late this year, early next year? I hope you get some answers in october!
Today, I'm forcing DH to go and get some photos taken of us. haha i bought a living social (like groupon) deal where we get an hour photo session for only 70 dollars! So we are going to the local park for the photos. I am an amateur photographer and love taking photos but I rarely have photos of DH and me together because i'm always behind the camera. Therefore, poor DH has to suffer. hehe. I'll make it up to him. After all, he's having a football party in our apartment tomorrow! Seems like a fair trade, right?
SIL is going to have a c section on wednesday so I'm going to be an aunt soon. I can't wait! (Baby is breach so she needs a c section).
