So much for a vacation – now I’m waiting for work to start if only so it’ll provide a distraction and different things to worry about.
I had a dream yesterday about IVF in which we retrieved 16 eggs (and 7 fertilized). Thank god it wasn’t a nightmare. Mostly it was about me running around trying to find a phone to call back the doctor’s office to find out results.
We’re doing our best to prep and go in with our eyes wide open. Hubby and I spent our Sunday watching these IVF training videos (which actually was only partially helpful. I do not need more information about the risks.) Still, it did give a good sense of the stages involved. And at least felt like the shots themselves were the easier part of the process.
I really need more going on in my life. I originally thought, ‘oh, lets wait till I’ve been at the job a couple of months so things are more stable.’ Now I just want to get it over with. And yes, I’m clearly still operating under the naive impressions that once will be enough. But I figure at least it’ll get me through the first time and after that, the process itself won’t be a surprise to me.
