Well, it has been a few months and I have taken a needed break from blogging myself. Thanks to those who so kindly checked in on me - oh I have been checking in on each of you, but did not have much to say myself or the time to write on myself. So, here is a long awaited update on me and our lives.
1. After FET failed - it hit me hard emotionaly. I think it was the combo of it failing and also flashing back to the ectopic and loss in December. My meds and subsequent hormones were way worse with the FET and that probably did not help with my coping.
2. Endometrial biopsy - after 3 weeks of waiting and me having to call to freaking get the results - Positive for integrin - thus no Lupron depot prior to next fresh IVF. This means that I have plenty of "stick um" for the little embies.
The "palace" and its move has really ticked me off - many screw ups with appointments, money, and call-backs are not making me that excited for mapying and doing another round with them - but I keep thinking about them being the best - so I guess I will at least tolerate it for another cycle at least.
3. So, when is the next fresh IVF you ask? Well probably this July if nature cooperates. We have some vacations scheduled at long last after deciding to finally do something we wanted and not put it on hold another day. Also, the main reason is.....
4. I have given my notice at my group practice and open my own practice June 1st!!!!! This is an awesome opportunity and move and I am thrilled!!!! I will be putting in a little more time in the beginning but in the long run hopefully work less and make more!!! So the last 2 months, have not been focusing on IVF (probably a good break) but focus on building, marketing, and getting a new business ready to open. For those who have been wondering - I am a periodontist. What is that you ask. Well, I do bone and gum surgery in the mouth for health, disease and esthetics. I also remove teeth, place dental implants, and treat oral medicine patients (people who have lesions in mouth, dry mouth from radiation, biopsies, etc).
Obviously, the next few weeks will be very hectic to get ready for the opening. So the vacation in June and the IVF in July when things settle down sounded good to us!
So, all is good here. Lots of positive other things in our lives that we have been trying to focus on for a little while since we have neglected them lately. I feel I am in a much better place emotionally and physically now, and will be when we do the next Fresh IVF.
More to come soon......
