Pocos- We have our RE scheduled for around the same time, so we'll be there for one another through the 2ww.
I'm anxious but excited all at once but I need to find some downtime and some distractions with fun hobbies, work is making it all fly by way too fast right now. We start Lupron in 2 days...
A little background...In October 2010 we did a long lupron cycle for my very first IVF and had 13 eggs, w/ 8 to fertilize and actually 2 that made it to transfer. I wish I had known more back then and asked more questions to elaborate why the others weren't frozen maybe it was a quality issue? On the morning of the transfer we were so excited to find out about the second one making it at the LAST second we had everything fixated that this would be our lucky cycle, little did I know IVF is not 100% guaranteed on the 1st try. I'm still perplexed about the success rate increasing with each attempt but we only know our chances have to be better then not trying at all.
Kynlee- Thanks girl, wonderful how we can always count on you to be there for us! xx You must be getting so excited for your upcoming gender revealing party? I love your idea with the invitation makes it feel like a very special event, well it is!! I wish I lived closer to RI maybe someday we all can meet!
Patricia- I'm thinking of you this week and remembering your birthday on October 5th. I wish you a year full of new hope, your heart's desire with much contentment. XX
Julia- Don't make me get fussy, this board couldn't possibly make anyone feel almost sad, that isn't possible! Yep maria's thread ran for 500 pages and it could still make it if one wanted to keep chatting with over there.
We all thank you for the support, the encouragement and the many countless nights of prayers. Sometimes not always other ladies "graduate" to the PAT board and you never hear from them again and you're left out there either to sink or swim. So you know we appreciate the ones who come back and check in even if it's just every now and then.x
HopeThisWorks- That's wonderful news, I'm glad your son is doing well and it won't be much longer until you're in the final trimester...How exciting! Any names picked out for your little guy?
Tonya- Sounds like you're saying he freezing them and then transfering on the following weekend so everything will happen within the same cycle. How is he successful in this procedure, it sounds very interesting and I'd like to hear more. When we hear how other's protocals are set up it gives us so much insight and maybe ideas to share with our own RE.
AFM: Had a rough last couple of days...my boss has officially set a date for my pg coworker's baby shower. I told my boss that I stayed awake last night up until 3am trying to figure out how I could get out of attending it. Of course she wouldn't see it my way said I would regret it if I didn't come with everyone else. I told her I have set boundaries and those boundaries is how I keep my personal feelings from showing at work, so far I think I've done a pretty good job in handling this professionally. She said it's a baby shower it's just something everyone does and everyone goes to. I said but you don't understand I want to keep this all simple, even if I hopefully get pregnant someday I don't want all the attention, I don't want the shower from work because we did all of this by ourselves and I know how it makes other's feel. I mean why place ourselves in an uncomfortable setting when we don't have to be? and if you remember I didn't attend my last coworker's shower from my former job but she was ok and no I don't regret it. My best friend in Alabama and I chatted tonight and she had me laughing said she has a baby gift for a girl in her attic she never gave someone from church.... it's all wrapped up and said she would send it to me and I could just give it to her and never have to know what's inside or better yet go out a pick out something from her registry, I know that's wrong I am totally wrong for thinking this way but why should we place ourselves in these situations, attending baby showers should only be by choice! Oh and by the way, my boss is planning her shower at the Olive Garden on a Sunday evening after we all spend a day on floor moves that start that morning at 5am. I'm thinking I need to talk some sense into her!
