Hello ladies!! How's everyone?? Well, I was able to go to the RE on Friday!! Weather held out!! I'm really glad too because I was getting really nervous about it! The SHG was not bad at ALL!! No pain whatsoever!! (I'll repost my experience under procedures to help ease the minds of others!) He told us the results of our labs from the previous weeks, and all came back GREAT!! My FSH and Thyroid tests and whatever other tests for 'me' came back excellent. Although, my Rubella test came back as I needed to be re-immunized!! Nothing serious, just have to go to my FP and be re-immunized. Then, he did the SHG. He did find a small polyp that he is going to remove in my uterus because he's afraid that it will affect the attaching of the embryos at transfer. Just a day surgery, but I'm a bit nervous as they have to sedate me and I've never had to be sedated. He said that pain would be very minimal, maybe like cramping, and should not be around long, so I can deal with that. Then we do another blood test in a month to check on the rubella issue and we'll then start our IVF!! He's saying around the end of Feb. then our first transfer would be in March!!!!! I'm soooo excited. He said that with everything else looking so good, that he doesn't see us having too low of a percentage that it won't work on the first time! I'm not going to hold him to that because I know 'we' don't control that, 'HE' does! And whatever the good Lord wants, is good with me!
Speaking of that, ironically, we left the RE and stopped by the Saltgrass Steak House to have lunch. Our waitress was very sweet, and friendly, but when she found out why we were in the big city, she tried DESPERATELY to talk us out of IVF!! I had to hold back tears while she was talking, because I know in her mind, she was just sharing her beliefs, but I'm a Christian myself, and I know what my conversations with God are like, and I just felt like I didn't know where to turn! I know that probably doesn't make sense, but I started questioning myself!! I know though that in my heart, this is the ONLY way that my DH and myself will ever have a baby. And I believe that God wouldn't give us 'specialists' if He did want us to have help. I know that He can do everything, but can't that mean also that by giving us people to help us that it's ok to borrow them? Sorry to ramble, but that girl just got to me I guess you'd say! I needed to come back here and get some 'backup'!! LOL I truly appreciate you ladies being here to 'type' to! I'm still excited and it seems as though everything is rolling along!! Hope you all have a great day!

I'm glad things are going so well and your tests came back normal. As for the minor surgery...I'm sure things will go smoothly and you'll be on your way to IVF!

As for the waitress...how rude to be so forward with her opinions with a complete stranger! It's none of her business and she had no right to be like that with you. It's your decision. I'm a Christian as well, and was even a Children's Pastor for a while, and believe that God has given us technology and doctors to assist us. I know many people who have had to go through IVF because it was their only option and have a firm faith in God. If you believe this is your chance and that God has openned up this door than that's all that counts hun.

We're here for ya hun! (((hugs)))
Thank you Claire1977 for my adorable siggy
For the special little one in your life!

I'm glad to hear you got good news at your appointment! And March for your transfer... that's right around the corner!

I'm also sorry that you had issues with that waitress. I guess she felt justified in sharing her opinion because you shared some personal information with her - she obviously has no clue on the emotional impact of IVF, or if she does, she's just plain mean.

You know what you believe and your religion and faith obviously play a strong part in your life, so don't let someone elses opinion affect that.

I am sooo glad that everything went so well for you!

As regards the waitress. People can be very blunt when talking about IVF.
I always say that people who have never been through fertility issues can't understand anyway.
I think that God plays a huge part still.
I know we are bypassing nature largely, but...Once the embies are transferred, that is where
science stops and nature begins

Good luck and i hope we both get in a DDC asap!

Waiting for god to bless me with my 1st child when the time is right.

I'm sorry the waitress was rude. When it comes to that sort of stuff I wish people would keep it to themselves. Especially if that waitress brought up the whole god issue it makes me mad. Every person has their own belief and who are we to push ours on other people. I hope not offend anyone by saying this but I can't stand people who try to push their religion and religious beliefs on other people. I have been stopped onthe street and of course the people that knock on my door. If I wanted to hear about I would ask. i hope your IVF goes well for you.
