Hi everyone! i hope everyone is having a relaxing weekend so far!
Gelly, I'm so sorry. I definitely remember the feeling of getting the BFN and the hopelessness that comes with it. It will get better. And hopefully, the next time, you'll be getting your BFP! I'm also sorry that you have such limited choices for REs. Did you have a post IVF meeting with the current RE? Did he have a thought as to why it didn't work? Why do you feel you've lost confidence in this RE?
Belly, YAH for coming to a decision. I think it's a great decision because it will make you feel more comfortable and positive! I'm so excited for you! I know how difficult it is to get past the "what ifs" and "we should haves" but just think about moving forward. saying that, I still have moments when i think, what if I just stopped taking BCPs a couple of years earlier or even a year earlier!! It still bothers me because i feel like we could have gotten started TTC earlier if I had stopped BCPs earlier- it took me almost a year and a half to get over BCPs!! ARGH! I hate those stupid pills. And, yet, here I am, on them again. Oh the travesty. haha
Graf, thanks for checking in!! I hope that everything works out. Bleeding is completely normal so I'm sure that everything is fine! I can't wait to hear about the first US!!
RCR, i hope you're having a great weekend!! i'm sorry you had to miss out on your camping trip. :o( these shots really are inconvenient...I am so worried that I will need to travel one day during a stim cycle and therefore, have to figure out how to bring my injections on the plane and inject myself. haha i still make my husband do all my injections.
Blue, ugh to insurance!! I dread open enrollment for insurance too. Now that we're in this procedure, my DH and I will have to scour all the plan information to understand which is the better plan for us. why don't they just make it easier!! By the way, definitely figure out a way to hoard the medications...I have a feeling it will be my saving grace, even though I really really really want the fet to work out so I don't have to use them. haha
AFM, nothing doing. haha it's so boring. DH and I went to a birthday party yesterday and sang a little karaoke so I ended up drinking a couple of glasses of wine. i guess that is the only good thing about being on BCPs and not on stims...I can drink a little. but really, i can't wait to give that up and start preparing for the next cycle!! A full 2 weeks left. DH drove me to tears this morning...I woke up in the morning (I always wake up earlier than DH) and he had written a note next to a bowl for my cereal (must eat almost immediately after I wake up) telling me how much he loved me. It was so sweet and I really just feel so lucky to have him as my partner in life. hehe i did threaten to frame the letter and hang it up. He didn't take to that idea as well as I did. haha
Ladies, I updated the blurb section so please just check and make sure that things are on the up and up!
Hugs everyone...I love "talking" to you ladies!!
