Possibly the only upside to being infertile is that I have never had to worry about birth control. Never that is until I decided to try to make a baby. The fertility centre has me on birth control for the next 21 days, and that amuses me to no end. It actually makes sense, they want to override your system and hormones, so they pump you full of them.

Ask me on Day 21 if I still find it amusing *g*

So yep, after the false start in November, I'm actually in a schedule and ready to go! All the drugs have been ordered, I just have to figure out how to pay for them right after Christmas (heh - I should just stick them in my stocking - Merry Christmas to me!)

(And to those I talked to about what I should do, I appreciate all of your opinions, and I did call the centre and explained my concerns with this cycle. They felt that since my IVF cycle didn't acutally start until January, with a transfer in late Jan (fingers crossed) the holidays shouldn't throw me too out of whack.)
Who does she think she is?

I have been SOOOO busy as of late but I've been meaning to comment on this. I appreciate your writing about this, and I am really pulling for you. I just got the referral from my own doctor regarding a fertility consultation...obviously not so nearly as far along as you. But we've been "trying" since April and I'm 36, so...

Anyway, ***HUGS**, best wishes, and know that I am intensely interested in hearing how everything goes.

Excellent news on your referral - first step on the crazy journey. I pretty much post about everything, I sometimes find that it's the more frustrating things that get my attention, blame the hormones *g* ((hugs)) and thanks for your wishes.

Fingers, toes, legs, and, yes, even eyes crossed for you! Good luck, sweetie. Hormones suck, but it will be worth it. :)

Unfortuntaely, I can guarantee you that in 21 days, you will want to murder your doctor, the nasty cashier at the grocery store, a coworker, possibly your husband and the guy who cut you off on the highway.

Or at least that is how I've felt for the past 60 days!

But I always think, ok, this baby is going to be the luckiest baby in the world. I have sacrificed my peace & sanity to bring him/her here! And, despite everything I've had to give up, I know I will love him/her more than anything in the world!

Hey, I think you are doing the right thing by starting now. A few days isn't going to make any difference, since you will be on BCP's for weeks! Woo hoo good times await you :)

I am really pulling for you.
