A Tiny Bit of Sunshine


Some days on the IF road are actually hopeful, filled with a sunshiny sense of optimism and the belief that all of this might come to a grand conclusion. Today was one of those days.

Our IVF teaching couldn't have gone better. Our IVF RN answered every question we had and was more than willing to explore any fear that we have about the process. She explained every detail of what is to come, and she was reassuring throughout our meeting.

She said that, although it's often frustrating as hell, our unexplained diagnosis is actually a positive in terms of ultimately getting pregnant. She was very encouraging about the results of my Clomid Challenge test, so I guess my ovaries really are doing their job down there.

So, today I feel a tiny bit excited about what we're getting ready to do. In some small way, I actually feel blessed to be going through this. How many people can actually say they've gone to this extent to have a child?

No matter what happens, watching all of this unfold will be one of the most memorable, amazing experiences of our lives.

I suppose it's days like today that make the IF road worth traveling.

Nity - let us know how your IVF class goes. Maybe we could get together and do a post later this week re: the answers to all of our questions! I got most of them answered today! Hope your class goes very well tomorrow! :)

Optimism feels so nice, doesn't it? Those little bubbles of hope come up periodically during the whole thing, in my experience.

Hey Leslie - you want to email me and then we can share answers and do a joint post (we post the same thing) on our answers? That might be pretty cool...

I'm so glad the class went well and you have the best attitude! To say that you feel blessed to be going through this is a huge step...at least it was for me. :)

Praying for you, girl. I'm excited for you!

I'm glad you had a good day! I know you are apprehensive but I think this is a positive step. At least now you have something tangible to look forward to. It's a new hope and I'm praying the last challenge that you have to endure. Hang in there!
Love You
