IVF Stress

Mostly it has been other life craziness that has been keeping me from my cyber-friends. Hopefully that part of life is slowing down and I can fill you in on the joys of IVF. The latest is that apparently they make you pay (in full) for the cycle 2 weeks before you start the fun drugs. They neglected to mention this little fact until Friday at noon, and now we are supposed to have signed all of our contracts and paid the bill by MONDAY. Of course we are supposed to sign the forms together and they have to be witnessed and this done at the clinic. I am not sure how this is going to happen seeing as how we both have jobs in different cities!Ugh. Supposedly if it is not done, then they stop treatment. I will be all-sorts-of-pissed-off if they try and do that. Can't a girl get an extension? Now I am all paranoid about it.
All I can say is...Don't make me come over there! (see, don't I sounds like a mom already :-)

I heart birth control

On this lovely Valentines day I have been too busy and am too tired to care about hearts and flowers. Hubby has had major crisis at work and will not be home until super late tonight. So we are unoffically boycotting the holiday this year (except that I ate 2 cupcakes at work today). Oh well.
I am finishing off my non-holiday celebration with a big fat birth control pill. yep. The Pill. I think it must be a joke among fertility docs that their infertile patients are subjected to this kind of irony. I picked up my prescription today and actually had to explain it to the pharmacist. She was very confused. I am learning that it is actually the "suppression" stage of my very first IVF cycle. Hubby and I met with my doc yesterday and handed me a big-ass binder full of info (that I have been avioding). I think we are in the big leagues now! oh boy!

Here we come

IVF, here we come. Another negative. I am now googling all I can about it and trying to figure out what I am in for. I will do whatever it takes I just hope that it works.
