Seventh Heaven

I guess the stern voice worked because Dr. BusyBusyBusy rearranged his schedule and did the procedure anyway. We never even had to talk with him-- the 12 year old managed the whole thing. I like to think his conscious got to him! After we've thrown thousands of dollars at him over the past year, so it only seemed right in that shallow capitalist entitlement way.

Seven eggs retrieved-- one less than usual-- which one could be disappointed with, but personally I feel like because it's something different this time, perhaps that means something different in the end. It's a story even if you don't believe it.

Dr. BBB mentioned something about a three day transfer, so it could be Friday or it could be Sunday. I'm hoping a little for Sunday because on Saturday night we have a dozen or so Episcopalian lesbians coming over to dine. If I can't cook, I'll be barking orders from the couch, and as appealing as that may sound, I'd rather be in control in the kitchen myself.

To help pass the time now that we're officially in the waiting period, I thought I'd try to come up with little known secrets about Katie and Partner's IVF cycles (or otherwise if I can't come up with anything scintillating about IVF). Number one secret: Last cycle we transferred three blasts, not two, which is what I told everyone except for one person, who was not my mother.

I'm sorry that I've never commented before - I should have long ago. I've been reading your story for a few weeks... we're also trying to get pregnant - and it's been quite a few months of giving it the old "college try." :-)

I just wanted to post and say good luck - like everyone else on this board - I'm crossing my fingers for you both... I want these babies for us all on the trying-to-get-pregnant boards so badly!

Good luck - looking forward to reading the good news soon. And enjoy your dinner party! Nothing better than a houseful of fun friends and good food... and a few bottles of wine.

I am so impressed with the way you have taken charge and called the doctor's office the last few times you were unsatisfied. It just shows that the squeaky wheel does get the grease and I am inspired to be a bit more assertive in my own life. Not that you are a squeaky wheel, but since it is such an important process you should be 100% comfortable in every step of the way. Way to be strong and get what you need!

Most excellent! Seven has always been my lucky number and I hope it works out the same for you. Now I will keep my fingers crossed that you get some lovely blasts for transfer on Sunday so you can enjoy your dinner party.
