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...
Who does she think she is?

My sister in law couldn't get pregnant, then she was rushed to the emergency room because her ovary had blown, after it was removed she went on to have two great kids. I guess my point is that hopefully, with the surgery, you will have the same success, I'm certainly wishing it for you!

Snowing! I can't believe it's already snowing! And I'm not squeemish about stuff like IVF. You'll have to do better than that to gross me out ;)

We've actually had a really reasonable fall. There are many years where the kids around here have to do Halloween in their snowsuits! (remind me again why I stay here?)

Heck - even I get squeemish about some of the IVF stuff, I hate needles! (Isn't that just somebody's idea of a joke!)

YAY!!!! Congratulations!!!!

If you do set up a filter, keep me in the IVF loop!

(I'm starting Clomid in January, so TTC posts are right up my alley!)

I am most certainly sending you loads & loads of *~**Baby Dust**~* I do pray that with that finally surgery, you both will be able to conceive. We will totally understand what you are going thru and what you are talking about (those of us that have done IVF). Let's think purely positive thoughts. Let's think beautiful, warm, loving, positive thoughts for the near future. Let's try to forget the failed attempts in the past and focus of the positive attempt in the future. We are all so happy for you and I am sure we will keep you in our thoughts for a little bundle of joy.

Snow? I've never been in snow. I've seen fake snow and naturally snow on TV, but you know us true Floridians...we stick to palm trees. Brrrrrrrrr - Snow.

Thank you so much for your kind and good thoughts. I'm really trying not to put too much pressure on myself, and really trying to look forward instead of back.

I would love to be able to say I've never seen snow! I was born in the wrong part of the continent.

On the contrary, I would LOVE to hear more about this. My husband and I have been trying to conceive (TTC, as I believe it's called online) for 7+ months. We haven't started using anything onther than nature and timing, but I am 36 so I'll be talking to my doctor soon.

***HUGS*** Good luck!!!!!!

Since I "met" you through the IVF group I am all ears, and sending a lot of positive thoughts your way.
