Back on the horse that threw you



My period arrived yesterday.

After several phone calls over the past half week, yesterday I also spoke to the Denver clinic and although they are techically "full," they've been most helpful to squeeze me back onto their IVF calendar.

No, the family situation is still not completely resolved, but I cannot wait any more. Watching cycle after cycle go by with no intervention is starting to drive me batty. It's begun to really weigh me down. Add to that that I've had hot flashes a couple of nights in the past month (including last night, bah!), and I am just not comfortable letting more time pass as my little ovaries seem to be trying to shrivel up and die.

So we're on the calendar for an early to mid-March retrieval at Colorado. I start birth control pills tomorrow and will take them for fourteen days, starting stims and human growth hormone after that.

Tentative date to fly to Denver is March 2...

Fingers crossed. Please, please, please let this be it.

Mo

  8. You can get the Hyatt Place on Hotwire for $49/night. Also apparently sometimes Candlewood offers that rate if you get the manager on the phone.

  12. I just joined, and I wanted to say good for you! I too have been through failed IVF, miscarriage, and years of infertility. Sometimes we don't give ourselves enough credit for how brave we are for "getting back up" on the horse again.
