outdoorsy - is the RE going to give you provera if AF doesnt show?
Jenny - sorry about your bfn. are you going right into your next try or taking some time off?
I love seeing everyone in the tww and gearing up for their next try. there's so much anticipation! it's exciting.
AFM- it's cd12 which means... we will be starting again in 2 or 3 weeks? wow, how did we get here already!?! this summer has flown by. today my dear wife and i had follistim injection training at the fertility clinic. It seems pretty easy except for remembering the order of all the steps? I guess we'll be pros soon enough. They gave us a DVD which I cannot wait to watch... sounds like high entertainment value. Everyone says those follistim needles are so tiny you wont feel anything, but I got a good look at them today and they seem plenty giant and painful enough to me. I'm so glad my wife will deal with jabbing me. I can't believe people jab themselves!
In other weirdness, my clinic has a sign posted that if you write a good review of them (like, on yelp.com or whatever), they will give you a $5 gift card to starbucks. Now, first of all, isn't it unethical to *buy* positive reviews? Second of all, I checked their yelp profile and there are people who claimed the clinic dumped them for writing bad things about them. It's like, one of the strangest unethical business practices -- and who really cares that much about their business's ranking on yelp.com? Just don't be shitty to people. I can't wait to be pregnant and done with them. Also, how much mileage do infertility patients get from Starbucks cards? yes, i'm well acquainted with their caffeine-free menu, but it seems like a weird incentive considering the context.
