Congrats on getting into the study! Great to save some cash! Not to mention that I'm sure they'll take extra good care of you in the study protocol!
Can't wait to hear from you tomorrow after your appt, I hope they don't have you wait longer than you want.
I love my RE, she responds to email- how fabulous! She's very young, but i have confidence in her.
Regarding the best friend's baby showers.....OMG I've had so many situations that I could go on for hours about. Here's one in brief- my childhood bestfriend (we never wanted kids in the 1st place) accidently gets pregnant WITH TWINS!!!! She just had them on Feb 28th. I love the little boys and my friend is a very sensitive person so she understands how I'm feeling. On one hand, of course I'm happy for her, I care for her deeply, but there is sadness for myself too.
It's okay to be happy for her and sad for yourself at the same time, the feelings can co-exist without conflict. When is the shower? I'll be wishing you strength of spirit to deal with the situation and permission to be sad and happy at the same time (sometimes its hard to give yourself permission-- so i'll give it to you
I'm due for AF on either the 10th or 11th (i have an OPK positive on a monday, so she's probably show on Tuesday i guess). I'm really tempted to test, but i'm fighting it off as long as i can....just trying to stay focused on my next RE appt, did you see the posts about good questions for your RE. Its really good, i'm going to print it out.
Post after your appt, okay! I'm dying to hear about it, I know you are gonna get a BFP very soon!!!!! I'll be a great cheerleader!!!!!
