Bad blogger

Ok, I have been a bad blogger. I have no excuses, only laziness, for not updating my blog.

Since I ovulated yesterday, I will start my estrogen patches next Tuesday and Ganirelix on Wednesday. Right on time for possible retrieval by end of month. That is just around the corner. Since my cycles are short things happen fast. I'm concerned about how crazy I am going to be on the estrogen patches. I took estrogen back when I was in my early twenties because my gyn thought it would stop my midcycle spotting. The estrogen made me a crazy person.... Well, I've warned DH that I'm getting on the crazy train (I love ozzy references) and he just laughed. I didn't expect to get a laugh out of him but oh well. He's has been incredible through all this hormonal crazy mess.

My new clinic is going to start me stimming on CD2, which is going to make for a messy ultrasound on that day. Ugh. I also have to go to a class for a few hours next Tuesday from 9:30 to 11:30. I don't know what is going to take 2 hours? They said I could not skip it as I needed to know where to sign in for B/W and ultrasound on day two. But seriously, does that really take 2 hours? I know that I'm just being dramatic but I am not one of those Upper East side rich wives who does not have to work. I work with all men who have no idea that I am doing IVF or even ttc. What is worse, if they knew, legally they could not let me go, but I would not get the same high profile work assignments that I am currently getting. I don't care what anyone says, they do not treat the sexes equally in the work place. Anyway, I'm going to get creative with my excuse for missing work on Tuesday morning.

Work... I am just not into it at the moment. I find it really hard to get out of bed and drag myself into the office. With all the layoffs that happened last year there is no one from my group that works in the NYC office, only one guy and he works mainly in our CT office. I'm going to start looking else where in the firm for another position after bonuses are paid in Feb. I can't wait to move onto somthing else but I cannot change firms at the moment as I'd give up my maternity leave of 3 months full pay.

Ok, I must go and do some yoga and then eat. DH is cooking chicken korma, yummy.

If you're cycling where I think you are...

I don't remember the class taking that long, but it really depends on how many people are in it and how many questions get asked.

The last half of the class is really an introduction to injectables and they did give us the option of skipping that.

The other time consuming part was a meeting with your nurse where you go over your protocol, but it sounds like you already have that.

Good luck!

Sweet. And dont' worry about that baseline u/s - you never get to see any messiness. I always thought that to. (or too? I never know in this case).

Hope you don't get on the crazy train! I've been taking SO MUCH estrogen due to my surgeries, I can't even tell the difference between estrogen laced nancy and sans estrogen nancy!

I had better results when I started stimming on cd2 (well, better as more follicles, not better as in bfp). This time I started stimming on cd-1 so I have no idea what to expect. Good luck! And if you do get on the crazy train, don't worry, the stop where you get off is not that far way (2 weeks?).

I took a class and it was very short as I was the only one in it! Maybe that will happen to you.
