Appts and Trips

I had my followup appt today. What a waste of time! He didn't even want to see my insicions; he just asked if they were okay. But I did ask him about the bloodwork and he ended up ordering some. Nothing cycle-day specific so I will get it done tomorrow. Also got a script for progesterone that has 5 refills. So I guess he doesn't plan on seeing me for a while unless I get pregnant. I haven't been able to figure out why, but going there really depresses me. I think part of it is that he is so damn optimistic. He kept telling me there's no reason now why I shouldn't be able to get and stay pregnant and that I should get busy working on it. So next week I guess we will.

I am so excited for a good friend of mine. We've known each other since we were 5! Although our lives took very differen paths, we've remained in touch and now our lives our converging again in a way: she is doing her first IVF cycle this month and is just a few days ahead of me in the cycle. I'm keeping my fingers crossed for her success and I think it would be oh so cool if we ended up pregnant together!

We are heading to Branson, Missouri tomorrow. My friend J is down there for a family reunion and we are flying her daughter down and decided to stay a day or two and check out the place. We'll be borrowing a room in a cabin which means sleeping with G which means we'll be doubly tired by the time we get back! But it should be fun and I'm looking forward to the distraction.

I think five cycles is about standard, so don't worry!

Enjoy the trip - drive safely!

Well, maybe your doctor has a reason to be that optimistic!!!!!
