quick update

I didn't realize how long it's been since I posted. When there isn't much going on, I guess I don't have a lot of inspiration to write about gettin' preggs. The rest of my life is not so exciting, so there you go.

My HSG is scheduled for next week, and I am pissed I have to take a day off work. This year is very, very difficult for a lot of reasons, and I don't like to miss any days. It's just that much more for me to do when I return.

I had horrendous PMS the second time in a row - bloating, cramps, extreme bitchiness, food cravings, the works. Followed by a pretty normal period. So I don't know what is up - I kind of find it oddly reassuring. In the past, I had none of these things presumably because my hormones were low. I would just start bleeding whenever. But who knows?

IVF is getting closer . . . . dun dun dun.

Just wanted to pop on and say good luck...

Years ago in my secondary infertility group we had a saying...

Feel the fear and do it anyway !!

Thinking of you.

IVF isn't as bad as it seems from the Yet To Start Side.

Hang in there..

you know, is it fair to blame the bitchiness on PMS? I mean, i'm just sayin.'

sorry. there is no place for humor in a time like this. IVF really isn't that bad. i mean, i didn't go thru retrival, but i've heard that's the easy part. The drugs aren't that bad, really.

thinking of you too.

IVF is scary beforehand, but, honestly (and I wouldn't lie to you) it's generally a lot easier than you fear it's going to be.

I agree with everyone else. The waiting and anxiety never get any easier - BUT - the IVF itself is a piece of cake. You're gonna do great.

I haven't a clue about it and am inching my way towards it myself. Considering you hear about people doing it more than once it can't be too terrible. Right? Good luck . . .
