RE nurse + call = normal? get OUT!

You know that feeling you get when the phone rings during the day, you look at the caller ID, and it's your RE's office? And they are calling you to give you the results of your latest test - that you've already forgotten about? I always get butterflies a little. Because I think it will be bad news. Somehow, I manage to put it out of my head until I hear the phone ring, and then I get this sheer panic all at once. It's really annoying.

So, my thyroid panel came back normal, which is good.

We are getting closer to IVF. And I am getting a little more freaked out every day. But no backing out this time. No no. We are doing this.

I'm glad that your thyroid tested out normal.

IVF isn't that bad. Just more expensive than other treatments. But it also works more often, too.

Oh, I am so glad the panel came back okay.

Moving to IVF is such a huge step, but hopefully it'll be exactly what you need!

on your way, indeed!
is it exciting, terrifying, or both? i think it would give a comforting sense of action, but i really don't know what i'm talking about...

Glad the tests were normal.

I know the IVF thing is so scary, it is a huge leap. I think once you fully decide and commit it is a bit more comforting than scary. On a good day , of course.

i'm with geohde. it's scary, it's pricey, there seems to be so much weight attached to it, but IVF really is not harder than all the crap you've been through already, and your chances are going to get MUCH better! i'm very excited for you!!
