8 is not enough

8 is not enough

Poop. We went to the clinic this am for an ultra sound and blood work. Fool me, I’d been thinking that with this uber protocol and all my positive thinking and hopefulness I’d somehow produce more eggies than last time. We’re producing LESS this round. Last cycle we had 13 eggs, only 3 of which … Continue reading

Dial 1800 PUPO

I’ve decided to be PUPO. It’s a little early in the game, yes, but here’s how I see it: my last period started Jan 20.

New Do, New Dog

There’s nothing like a a new “do” or a new dog to give you a new leash on life! (I can’t resist puns). I’ve been growing out my hair for a while but lately a rebellious little voice was calling to me: cut me, cuuuuut meeeee!!!! So I did. I’m hoping this new look is … Continue reading

Finally out of the waiting room

Finally out of the waiting room

There are lots of harsh truths about IVF, the two that come to mind right now are this: you’re first attempt is a shot in the dark… so you get the cookie cutter “package”- it’s great when it works, sobering when it doesn’t. The other harsh truth? When you’re benched between cycles, try as you … Continue reading
