It's a New Day!!!

Got period.

Called RE.

FSH tomorrow.

Start pill Sunday.

Stop pill March 23rd.

Onto IVF #3 (I hope because the last time I wrote IVF #3 it was converted to IUI).

Of course, I am excited and scared shitless all at once. I just love duality. I was alittle disappointed when AF arrived today. Well more like very disappointed. After all these years trying, I still hope for that miracle cycle when pregnancy occurs naturally. I don't obsess every twitch and twinge like I use to but, I still fantasize getting knocked up the old fashioned way - just Mr. G and me.

I have my fingers crossed that this cycle will be similar to the second one. I don't know if I could take another conversion. I somewhat reluctantly headed back to my acupuncturist. It was one of the things I did not do my last cycle. I am happy to see her again. She is such a doll. I just hate spending the money. I cut out the 30 minute massage so now I will pay $75.00 plus the herbs. One day this will all be a distant memory and I won't care about the silly details.

I head home tonight to sort through my big o'box of meds to see what I need. I only used the the big guns for the last cycle. Everything else is ready to go.

I remember when Thursdays meant Happy Hour with friends!!! Now, it's just me and my meds!!!

I wish you, me and a mojito could enjoy this Thursday afternoon together.

Hope this is the beginning of something really special.

To a normal person, it would seem odd to say congrats, you got your period, you get to start with the needles again, bring on the estrogen! In our parallel world, these are good things. So, congrats, I'm glad you've got a plan and a goal!

V glad you're into your next cycle.

I've started to worry about spending on the "extra" like acupuncture. I wasn't going to bother this last time, but went rushing back when my follies were so rubbish. There's a feeling we have to be throwing everything at a cycle. I suppose we don't want to look back and wish we'd done it differently.

Hope all goes according to plan.

Good for you! I really think each day brings you one step closer to your goal.

We're totally in 3rd-cycle-synch. AF came on Thursday night. Start the pill tonight (Monday). Start stims on the 18th.

Wanna know why I feel hopeful? (Besides the fact that spring is coming and that always gets me giddy?) I have this ludicrous idea that because I have now "practiced" this process twice I will be "better" at it. It's so insanely silly, but I can't shake it. So here's to "experience"!

I'm gladly ditching the acupuncture this time around. But I will indulge in a few massages. My RE gave me a card of someone who does fertility and prenatal massages, so I'll feel safe.

I know I've been a bit MIA lately. I am still around, just not as vocal. But I had to come out and wish you GOOD LUCK for this coming cycle. :)
