Rainshowers and Rainbows…. Life is a series of rainshowers and rainbows. My attitude about life unfortunately waivers between “glass half full & glass half empty”. This blog is an outward expression of my effort to seek out the “glass half full” and focus on the rainbowsin my life.

It's been a busy couple of weeks.  I've spent a considerable amount of time on the phone with my RI office and considerable time in the chair at many locals labs getting blood work.  My arms are quite bruised unfortunately.  There have been day when I have ...

I'm 17 DPO & my HCG is 334
Is this real?  My beta more than double again?  Really?  That is fantastic. So I took the call from a new-to-me nurse at my RE's office.  She called me around 11:30am today on my day off.  She told me my beta was 334 - yippee!   Then she told me we wouldn't...

Wait. Is that a line?
Wait.  What?  Is that a line?  I think that's a line... This Sunday morning started like most days when my period is approaching.  I get up at 6am, use the bathroom, dip a pee stick and go right back to bed without waiting for the results.  It's Sunday, aft...

IVF Aftermath. IVF is a Mind F@!%

The silver lining is gone
The silver lining I spoke of in my last post is gone.  Our other embryo didn't make it to freeze.   Surprisingly, I am okay with that.  I guess it is because we will get to do another fresh IVF cycle sooner than later.  We get a do-over. What I am not okay ...

Optimism is Gone
Well...  We had our egg retrieval and embryo transfer.  Technically we have a little bit of optimism left but not much. The optimism was sucked out of the room when they told me that they retrieved only 9 eggs.  I saw only 9 eggs and that the optimism was d...

The Optimism Continues
It's been awhile since I've written.  Over the years this blog has changed.  Initially it was about expressing my emotions while on this baby quest.  At some point it switched to more note taking.  In the last year or so, I've been using this blog as a way ...

Baby Gear...
I'll admit it.  I spent an inordinate amount of time researching strollers & car seats for my someday baby this weekend.  My secret board on Pinterest was reviewed and added to.  I could have and should have accomplished other things with my time but I supp...

IVIG wheels are in motion
The wheels have been placed in motion for IVIG and now I finally have a little less to worry about and fewer phone calls to make.  Unfortunately, IVIG will be an out-of-pocket expense but we are incredibly fortunate to have infertility coverage so IVF will ...
