The Best Laid Plans; The IVF Bug

13 01 2009

We had one final issue to clear up on selling our house – we cleared that up today, yay!!! So the sale is on like Don.key Kon.g!!!  That means I have to get my behind in gear, get our new house inspected and get a mortgage lined up.  I would like to close on or before February 15 – we thought it was going to be March but it looks like it will be sooner – yay for house stuff, boo for IVF#3.5………my nurse called me today – the retrieval would be around February 15 because they start all of their cycles with bcp’s. For you IVFr’s – do your clinics do that too?

I would love to shoehorn a cycle in all of the house madness because now I have the IVF bug – I got that hope, that burning, all consuming hope that this could be it, this could be the cycle that results in a baby AND I WANT IT NOW.

So, I am going against my usual impulsive, instant gratification self and taking a deep breath and allowing myself to wait until the first week of March for a retrieval – it may even be April because my clinic closes for three weeks in March for quality control…

So I will try to lose a few pounds, sell our house, buy another one, get massages and meditate………..I will be patient………………I will be at peace………………I will do this gracefully……………..AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH

Hi there,
I totally understand about the waiting! I think that my ER will be in early April too. I am also trying to be patient.

I have found meditating good but quite hard. I stare at a candle for about 10 minutes a day and try not to think about anything else.

I am also planning a few weekends away with DH before starting IVF. I just got back from 5 nights away with DH and our friends. We had such a great time that I hardly had a chance to think about IVF.

I’ll be reading your blog..We can keep each other sane!

Aaaaah – more waiting???? But like we’ve all learnt, it’s best to be most calm while doing IVF (yes, I am saying that – the queen of being stressed out the whole time this cycle!!)

Yay on your house closing! I’m sure you’re jubilant!

Good luck!

Good luck on selling the house, and fwiw, I totally understand about putting the IVF on hold for a month or so. It will be here before you know it!
