It's been a long time....

I know it's been a long time since I post.  Not that anyone is waiting.  This blog has always been for me.  But even I feel like I've been away a very long time.

There is finally progress.  I saw the fertility doctor on Friday.  I had a sonogram and trial transfer done and I'm happy to say they went well.  My endometrosis has stayed away this time and he sees no reason to not move forward with IVF.

We've been on the egg donor list since February and they told me last week that we're looking at Sept (October at the latest) to have that donor in place.  (I'm 43...egg donor is the right way to go). 

I was so nervous about the appointment and what the tests were going to say that I was actually sick for 2 days before the appointment.  It was a huge relief to leave there with good news for once. 

The next step is shutting down my cycle for the next 2-3 months.  I had a huge blood clot in 2009 so I can't go on birth control so this is the best thing to do so they can regulate my cycle for IVF.

Now I have to wait again for a little while but I think it will fly by. 

I'm still going to the gym, working out with a trainer and trying so hard to get my body ready for this.  I'm still not where I want to be but all I can do is keep trying.

That's it for now. 


  1. Of course I remember you! So good to hear from you! It's been a long time since we met on BBC! So great to hear of your plans for using donor eggs and the time line. As you know I'm a huge fan of donor eggs! That's good news about your endometriosis not coming back. You have been so patient and so determined. I am hoping and praying you get your baby! Good luck! Big hugs!!

  2. PS How do they shut down your cycle if not with BCPs?

  3. Hi!! Thanks for the support. Means so much. I'll be getting Lupron shots. It will basically put in a medically enduced menopause until IVF. And I'll get all the horrible side effects that go along with it. But it's only 3 months at the most and its for a good cause so it will be worth it.
