sorry about the fight. It happens to the best of us.

Glad you are moving ahead with IVF! You are basically doing what I did between my IUI and IVF - waiting for the cysts to shrink (I wasn't on BCP, but diff meds). I'll be anxious to learn of your IVF protocol....and remember, I'm only a PM away if you have questions!

Sorry about the fight, this TTC malarky really does bother us more than we know at times! I hope you and DH make up soon

I hope the IVF RN calls soon and you dont have to chase it up, do you have a set date for when your coming off BCP or does it depend on the cysts?

Thanks ladies! DH and I will be okay. I just did something that I shouldn't have done (drunk flirting....).

So, I'm a little bummed today. I'm starting to have some good CM and I know I can't do anything about it. It's just a cruel reminder....

Thanks ladies for the support. Still feel like I'm at a standstill with ttcing....

Looking forward to the trip to Philly and NYC!

Also, decided to host a NYE party at our house. Again, something to look forward to!

Dawn, I'm almost at 50 lbs lost, only 1.2 lbs to go! And DH and I are all good, the stress of the ttc journey is the culprit, but we're good now!

So I finally talked with my RE's IVF nurse yesterday. We talked about the next steps of the process. I scheduled an u/s on 12/27 to see if the cysts are gone. If they are, we move forward. I should get AF at the end of this month. I will take another pack of bcp next cycle to prep me for IVF. I'll start taking injectibles between mid to the end of January. Around February 6th, if all goes well, they'll retrieve my eggs. I'll know more on the specifics after my u/s on the 27th. The IVF RN told me that my egg reserve numbers look fabulous, so that's good news. I'm still bummed that that I have to do IVF, but if it gets us a baby, I don't care. I just wish we didn't have to go through all of this! I know a lot of you ladies reading this know how I feel! We only have one test that we didn't take, the infectous disease test--so we'll have to give bw. I'll keep you posted on the IVF process.

Tomorrow after work we leave for Philly for the holidays. Thursday night we will drive to Somerset PA, spend the night there then Friday morning we'll drive the rest of the way to Philly. Saturday morning, DH, BIL, SIL and I will drive to NJ take and take a train to NYC. I'm meeting up with one of my best friends and her boyfriend who happen to be in NYC for work and visiting family the same weekend. We'll have lunch together and then BIL, SIL, DH and I will tour the city. I've never been to NYC around Christmas, so I'm excited to see the tree and the holiday sights. We'll stay in NYC until Monday morning. Then we'll take the train back to Philly to spend time with DH's family. Not really sure yet, what we are doing, as his family doesn't really keep us informed. We'll leave Wednesday morning to return to Dayton. The return drive home will take us about 10 hours, so we'll be tired. Then I return to work on Thursday. It's going to be a busy day!

I will probably not be on the boards during this time, or not much, anyhow. If I don't get a chance to talk to everybody before then, Have a happy holidays, Merry Christmas! XO

Sounds like you have a really good plan in place. What stands out most to me is that your egg reserve is fab!! (This was our biggest hurdle) I'll be curious/interested to learn about your injectables protocol once you know...and don't ever forget, I'm just a PM or message away!

Have a super fun trip, and safe travels. I would LOVE to experience NYC around this time of year. I've only been there 2x, once in summer, and once in spring, but would LOVE to see it during this season.

Have fun, and enjoy your holiday! xx

Thanks Karin!

I will definitely let you know the protocol when I know more. Super excited about the egg reserve! I was worried about those numbers. It still bothers me that everything looks good on paper--great labs, good SA, etc...but we still can't conceive naturally. Though I'm excited about going forward with IVF, I'm nervous. I just hope it's not like my failed IUI--where everything looks great, then BFN....I know it's out of my control, but I know it will be such a big let down if it doesn't work. Thanks for listening. I know that eventually I will be a Mommy!

I'm glad you got to talk with the RN and that you have a plan in place, by the sound of all your plans this next week - the 27th will come quickly! I'll be sending non-cyst thoughts your ovaries way in the mean time. Its so exciting that you have your plan for IVF, although I'm not there (yet) im sure it is scary but you and DH will get eachother through it

Hope you have a fabulous time in NYC, as I said the other day me and DF are looking at going for our honeymoon so i'm really jealous!

NYC is awesome during Christmas (and most times of the year - but I am biased). Let me know if you need any advice about what to do or logistics or anything for your trip! I hope you have a great one! We will be doing touristy stuff too, since my best friend from Chicago is coming in on Saturday!

Happy holidays!!

Had a wonderful evening out with friends yesterday. Got in a little later last night than I anticipated, but we had such a great time I don't regret staying out a little late!

So looking forward to my trip to Philly and NYC this weekend! I think it will be a nice break and a fun way to spend the holidays.

Again, I hope everyone has a wonderful holiday.
