It's a Go...Today, Anyway
I'm still on the bandwagon, as of today. This cycle I am just realistic - my goal is just to hold onto the wagon and remain in the process as long as I can. Vanished is my idealistic self who used to believe that a girl could give herself a few shots, go through an egg retrieval and end up with a few embryos. I get it now - it's an accomplishment just to make it from one step to the next.
Baseline ultrasound and E2 levels indicate that we can move ahead, per Nurse Nightingale. The cyst is still present on my left ovary, but is the same size. No worries about it presently.
Now, I'm just waiting for Aunt Flo to appear. Meds will start on Day #3.
As is typical in IF Land, I am now waiting again and mentally preparing for the numerous (additional) questions that will no doubt arise in the next few days.
I have been married to my husband for 2 years, and I think he's more amazing every day. I work full time in management, and on most days I love what I do. Also, I'm 34 and making it my personal mission to ignore what the statistics have to say about my next birthday and the odds of conception.
