Past October

We scheduled our IVF orientation in August. I'm anxious about it...I have so many questions about the procedure, the time frame, the success...I just can't wait for it to get here. With that being said, I'm also starting to kind of freak out because I'm a planner. I know in IF, planners aren't allowed.

As I've said before, I'm a...runner (kind of, it took all my might to type that because I really just feel like a runner wannabe) and there's so great races in December but I can't plan for it until after the IVF. I know you can still exercise but if it works I plan on being extremely careful, I'm going to try to not even sneeze hard.

My best friend is getting married in Florida in October which is at the start of my cycle so now I'm waiting for orientation to know what the time commitment is so I can know if I can go.

I need to know how much time to plan to be off work.

Don't get me wrong, I'm not complaining about putting in the time. I know if I want a baby this is what I have to do. I just want the orientation to get here so I have a better idea what to expect. I hate not having control. I hate not knowing. I just want to know past October...

Focus your happiness on what you do know and enjoy that. You have consistent cycles, celebrate that. You have your answers and know that IVF is the way you need to go, celebrate that.
Relax, enjoy a margarita, while you can still have it :)

We have our IVF consultation in August too. It will be nice to "go through this" along side someone else. Good luck!

IF kind of robs us of our spontaeneity...we are always planning around cycles, appointments, what if's, etc. If you do IVF you will have to go in for a bseline US scan CD1 (the first day of your period, or by CD3 the latest). So you might need to be home during that time. Hopefully it doesn't interfeer with there wedding, but of course we have to do what we have to do.:)
