Back to work

I'm here half days this week, and should be back full time next week! It's nice to be back in the real world, where pajama pants and tee shirts aren't considered acceptable attire. Where brushing my hair is not optional. Where I don't have a lazy pupper dog looking at me with her big browns wanting to go chase lizards on the patio every twenty minutes or so.

We're definitely moving on to IVF, whether we're ready for it or not. As soon as my body gets back to doing it's thing, I'll start cycle day testing and a mock transfer. Yikes! Doc gives us a 40% chance of it working the first time; I know those aren't bad odds when it comes to the reproductive gamble, but there's no way I'd go drop $15,000 in Vegas on a horse with those kind of odds! It's funny how your perspective (and ability for rational thought) changes (disappears?) when it comes to getting pregnant.

Holy crap. If this works, I could actually be knocked up by the end of the year!

Yikes! I never realized the monetary commitment involved in trying to get pregnant. Crossing my fingers that it works for you the first time!

I'm so so excited for you guys! I don't think anyone is ever ready for IVF...it's a means to an end, so you go through the motions (or force yourself through the motions in my case). It's the best chance you've ever had and that is a very exciting prospect...I'm so, so excited and hopeful for you!!! I just know this is the path that will lead you to your baby...I'm here for you every step of the way!!
