oh, bebe, what a beautiful sight!!!!!! i think i would be so giddy i wouldn't know what to do with myself!!
skj - you are next up to see a heartbeat! i totally feel for you right now. as much as i can't wait to see a bfp - i know that time frame between the first positive test and the ultrasound will be torture... i think it's great reassurance that the nurse says you are a-ok! and how wonderful that you have been on progesterone before the bfp! phew! i also think your frers look just as they should!!
toothfairy - thank you so much for the information! i am going to call my pcp next week to see if they can do the testing. i'm so excited for your vacation (though i will miss you terribly)!! hoping that bfn turns into a bfp so this can be a celebratory vacation! but if not... have fuuuuuuuun!!!
shell - thanks for "getting me"! and hooray for feeling happy! love that feeling keep us up-to-minute updated... i think this could by your month!!
tammy - welcome!! hoping clomid is just what you need to get you your bfp!
greenmum - so glad your numbers are looking good! i guess actually you will be the next with a sonogram and then skj!
sherry - check in, lady!
chrissy - thanks for your support... i really appreciate it!
afm - thanks to those of you who weighed in on my dilemma. you have no idea how much i appreciated that. i talked with dh last night and it turns out i was mistaken about the financing stipulations (phew!) and so we are not on as tight of a timeframe as i thought. so i called today to make the switch to the new doc. i was feeling really good about everything until the doctor's office told me that it will take a week to get both docs to sign off on the switch and at that point they will call me to make the appointment. so knowing how (not) awesome their track record is for responding to requests... i'm again worried that i'm going to fall through the cracks. i think i need to turn my meditations into visualizing that i will have a cooperative, nice, easy to deal with experience with this switch and new doc. i just don't understand why everything is so complicated. i was hoping i would have my appointment scheduled and then could just forget about everything for a while. now i will have to stay on top of them to make sure everything happens that needs to happen. grrrrrr.
so, anyway, it looks like i possibly won't be starting IVF until January. and i'm ok with that. as much as i want to not waste time and as much as i want to just get this show on the road... i need to feel confident in my provider. i'm going to allow myself as much researching and obsessing as i need to do up until the appointment is schedule with the new doctor. then at that point, i have decided i need to just do a let go and let god kind of thing... i'm trying to turn my attention to all the things i do have control over (since i feel so completely powerless right now) so i am working on designing my own protocol made up of all the things that research has shown to improve IVF outcomes. i started by emailing my husband the article toothfairy told us about with avocados and olive oil... and wouldn't you know... he picked up a bunch of avocados at the store on the way home from work. i love that man.
