(no subject)

This started out as a boring Tuesday morning post, talking about hockey and the fact that it's snowing, BUT I just got a fantastic call - my next round of IVF is starting today! I was a little worried that they wouldn't take us as the orientation is scheduled for this Thursday, but it's so close that it seems to all be a go today.

I was thinking just this past weekend about sending out a public service announcement, as I've gained a few friends that might not know about the stuff I've been going through trying to get pregnant. This is our final attempt at IVF, we have gone through two rounds before, as well as two rounds of frozen embryo transfers. They have all failed for some reason or another to this point, but this will be the first (and did I mention final) attempt since I had my surgery - so really there should be no reason it doesn't work. This is the first time in the past 5 years or so that I've felt this much pressure starting IVF, so I may be a bit more freakish than normal.

Back to the PSA part of the message: if this subject is sensitive to you in any way, or you don't want my ramblings about IVF filling up your friends pages please let me know and I'll set up a filter. The last time I went through the FET, I didn't have a lot of friends that weren't trying to conceive, but I've friended a lot of people since then that might not care about my E3 levels *g*. I'm totally open and comfortable talking about every aspect of this, so it might be TMI, but on the other hand, if you have questions about the process or my babbling, I'm happy to answer.

Off to do cartwheels...

Cartwheelus Interruptus

I should have known that some trickster would have built a wall right in the path of my cartwheels...

Late this afternoon I received a call from the fertility centre. It appears that although they were willing to take my $2000 earlier this morning, they weren't so willing to give me a spot in their program this month. This is apparently highly unusual. The asshats have had my file since August, but didn't think it was important at any time (including last month when they were harassing me to book the initiation session) to reserve a spot for me in the program. This is one of the reasons I'm glad this is our last attempt, there have been far too many screw-ups and oopses with the administrative side of the clinic.

So now my tentative schedule looks like this:

Dec 20-January 9 - birth control pill (I know, it's odd, you go on the pill to start getting preggers)
Jan.4 - start suprefact
Jan. 13 - blood test and start Puregone
Jan. 21 - trigger
Jan. 23 - retrieval

Needless to say, as I haven't started the program yet, I requested they refund my money.

I am so mad I could spit.
