We’re okay. It sucks but now we’re looking forward to IVF. The Something Big that I was feeling must have been the train rumbling toward the station.
Like I said, we’re looking forward to it – better odds and if it doesn’t work the first time well at least they’ll be able to tell us a bit more. But it’s scary too, we have a lot of questions and probably more than we’ve even thought of yet.
AF doesn’t seem to be coming just yet, which makes us think that they did screw up the timing with the last IUI. We’re not upset about it, it’s just another thing, but K’s usually on CD1 again by now so pretty sure they stuffed up.
We’ve had a pretty good weekend in the end, it wasn’t pretty yesterday but we got there. We went to see Sunshine Cleaning on Friday night and then GI Joe last night – K gets a great discount on movie tickets from being a teacher and as a result we’re spending a lot of weekends at the movies lately lol. Today she played soccer for the first time in a while (she’s goalie so it’s definitely a no-no while ttc), she played against a team with one of her students in and won so that made her very happy. I got struck down by a nasty case of Sundayitis this afternoon but I’m over it now 🙂
Our IVF consult is set for September 18. We’re out this cycle obviously and CD1 should be just after the appt so we’re not sure if that will be too soon. So we’re going to ring on Monday and make sure that we’re on the cancellation list and see if we can get an earlier date.
For those of you that have been through it, how long did you have to wait to start IVF? What kind of testing did they ask for and how long did you have to drug up in advance?
The pamphlet we got a while ago said they use light sedation for the retrieval and sometimes if it is difficult then they use general. So the other question that we have right now, is when they say light sedation – what does that mean?
Also, I’ve been playing a game with myself for a while now where most of my post titles have come from lyrics. I try to keep them to kiwi songs that have some relevance but sometimes it’s just a song that we listened to or sang along to that day. Sometimes it’s too hard to try, which I thought today’s would be too, but then the perfect line jumped into my head. The problem is I end up with the songs stuck in my head afterwards lol. Oh well – at least I amuse myself!
