PMA...GOOD LUCK today! I hope everything is perfect! I am so excited for you
Everything is going well over here, just waaaaiting! I hate the waiting game. I've never wanted to stab myself with a needle as bad as I do right now! I feel like once I start those I will feel like we are actually accomplishing something. This just feels like wasted time (and it doesn't help that I know it's wasted because RE is on vacation...grrrr). That's nice that your boss was able to relate to you. Mine is a mother of 3 and she said she couldn't imagine not having them in her life, I need to do what I need to do and my family should come first. Obviously she doesn't want my work to fall to the way side, but I happen to have 3 months off coming in about 4 weeks! Yay for summers!
purplefish...I'm sorry I missed you before your ER, but hope it went great! 8 eggs is wonderful!
rio...sorry I missed your ER as well! I'm also sorry you feel crummy, but I will be crossing my fingers for all 5!!!!
bei...I hope the metformin is treating you well. My stomach did NOT agree with that stuff! If you do start to feel sick on it, try to eat something small (and not sugary) every couple of hours. If you let yourself get too hungry the metformin will let you know!!! Good luck
mcfarland...how's the 2ww going? What are you doing to keep yourself occupied? That's what I am most worried about. I am not a very patient person. My mom just told me I need to find a hobby to keep my mind off of things. Clearly she doesn't understand that there is no keeping your mind off of IVF!! I may have missed it in the posts, but when is your beta?
DCrunning...I totally understand not wanting to go on the trip. I am so thankful mine is falling in the summer and I don't have to worry about going to work! You will know the right decision to make
AFM...dh is working today so I finally had some free time to sit and do some personals! I am very excited because DH and I were struggling trying to figure out how we were going to freeze our embryos. There was no doubt that we were going to, but another $1,400 to freeze for a year was tough. My parents offered to pay for it, but I felt bad accepting. Then we decided we would just pull out of saving, but dh HATES pulling out of savings. Yesterday I got offered an opportunity at work to go to a Math Academy to learn to techniques to teach math which offers a $1,000 stipend for 5 sessions....FREEZING MONEY!!! I couldn't be happier! My boss even approached me asking if I would be up to it given the IVF and was very sweet-but I had to jump on it! There are another 5 sessions in the fall that come with another $1,000 stipend!
In other good news-I finish grad school on Tuesday!!! 2 years of hard work is finally over-and perfect timing too! I went for my masters with my sister, so it was nice to have someone to go through it with...and now we get to graduate together
Graduation in June 26 and I HOPE to preggo for it!!! Wouldn't that be a nice graduation gift? DH keeps asking what I want for graduation and just keep telling him a positive pregnancy test
I know if he could guarantee it he would. He bought a video camera yesterday for my graduation and I can't wait to use it again for a baby!
It was great to finally type a long reply again! I hope everyone is well...lots of hugs and best wishes!
