It's Time to Try Defying Sanity

Good news - today's baseline ultrasound showed NO CYST! I am cleared to start stims on Friday. Some would (and have!) say I'm insane for trying this, but it's not like I have a lot of attractive options at this point.

The timing of all this has been fortuitous. My kids' crazy summer schedule of tennis, swimming, and sports wraps up this week, so things will be much more relaxed around here. Better yet, after 2 1/2 months of unemployment hubby has a new job!! He starts in mid-August, after this cycle is done. So no worrying about finding childcare during all my appointments and no worrying that Egg Retrieval/Whacking Day will conflict with his job!

So many problems could have put a stop to IVF. Money. Unemployment. Cysts. The crazy shrink. And yet here we are!

It's time to trust my instincts
Close my eyes and leap



Note: Saturday was the third anniversary of Miles being born. His story and Jeremiah's are posted on this new blog Faces of Loss, Faces of Hope.

Hi. My name is Rachel. I've been keeping up with your blog for the past year, since I lost my daughter Shiloh to an umbilical cord accident in Oct 2008.

I just wanted to say that the stars are aligning for you guys! So wonderful! Congratulations on all the great news!

I did my first IVF cycle in March (after 16 cycles of trying to conceive since the loss of Shi) and got pregnant (luckily). If you ever wanna talk, lemme know! It's a painful/worrysome/stressful but super exciting process! Keeping my fingers crossed for you guys! Much love and peace. Xoxo
