Musings on a Sunday...

Well, Day 10 of my birth control pills, and I can only assume that all's quiet on the ovarian front. DH and I joke all of the time about the fact that we're on The Pill now - phew! Now we can have sex without worrying that we'll get pregnant - boy does that take the pressure off! Just for fun, we should use a condom, too...

Not much to report right now, other than the fact that I had a lovely dinner with two girlfriends on Friday (Indian...boy, do I love butter chicken...) and I confessed to them that DH and I have been seeing a fertility specialist. For those of you that know me and that have been following our plight, you'll know that this is a big thing for me. Up until now, DH and I have never told anyone other than family what we are dealing with. But it sure has been lonely doing it that way. These girls have been worrying for me for the past two years, and have been wondering why we haven't "gotten in" to see the fertility specialist yet. I finally broke down and told them that we have actually been seeing them for a year and a half...and that we've had four unsuccessful IUIs. I stopped short at telling them that we're trying IVF - I guess I just wanted that to be private for now, until we know the outcome. But it sure did feel like a weight off my shoulders.

By the by - where is everybody? One of my favourite things to do when I log on to my little blog is to read the messages that my dear "cyber-friends" leave me! It lets me get caught up a bit and feel like I am not alone out there. Lately, I haven't heard from anyone - so I'm giving a shout out to you girls - hope you are all doing well and hope to hear from you soon!!

Hey Springroll,

I know what you mean- sometimes it is a huge relief to let someone else in on the "secret" that is ttc.

I am really hoping that this IVF cycle will be it for you. How long do you take the bcps for?

Hi SR, glad to hear you are doing ok on your new protocol... fingers crossed that this cycle is the one.
I had my little girl 3 weeks ago today, 2 weeks early, and am finally learning what it's like to live on baby time... I know that soon you will get to experience it too.

Oh SR your little posts always make me smile. Heres your shout back.....
First I'm so glad to hear that you told someone, because like you said, I know you haven't told anybody. I bet that feels so good to let out.
Second, your right...its does sound weird that you and dh are on bcp's....haha, for as long as I've "knowen" you, I never thought I would hear that!!
Third I dont know if you heard yet but Ashley had her boys!! I dont have any details but will up date you as soon as I can! (sorry we haven't chatted for awhile and I wanted to let you know, because I dont know when she will be able to)
I'm really crossing everything that this is the LAST thing you will have to do to get your baby. So keep taking those pills :)

Hey SR!
Glad to hear that you told your friends what was going on. I know it really does help to have people to talk to about it!
As for me, not sure if you got my PM or not...I am on bed rest for the next 10 weeks or so (fingers crossed!). These little muchkins MUST stay in and bake so I am more than willing to do everything in my power to make sure that happens!

Hey SR, I can understand the not wanting to tell people and the wanting to tell. I've told more and more people over the years, as while I want my privacy, I feel so bad for skipping out of so much of life due to ttc, pgs, and losses. Plus, it's nice to be able to really talk to a friend irl.

Sorry I've been awol. Dh got a job in Australia so we've been busy making plans for the move besides post-surgery stuff. We had a death in the family also. I'm back at work now too which has been tough as I've been a bit down and a bit sore still. Getting better each day though... anyway, sending you love sweetie...
