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.
