Decision Time

If you haven't been following along with me on the travel site, that's where I'm blogging these days.

I made a decision while I was in the silent retreat. Here's my plan: my cycle is back to normal, no more weird wonkiness and I felt my ovulation right on time. This is all really good news.
I have a box full of meds waiting for me at home. I've decided to use them and give this IVF ONE LAST SHOT. We have just enough sperm left for me to do this and still have 2 vials left for K to do IVF/egg donor.
If I have another bad response to the drugs...well, then I'll know for sure, won't I?
If I have a good response and proceed ahead, the transfer would be on April 30th.
April 30th would have been my due date.

That's definitely an exciting decision.

Sounds like a great plan. I hope April 30th brings a successful transfer and a BFP soon after.

i'll also be remembering your loss with you and wishing for you that you were welcoming your babe, instead of starting over...

Hey! Good to hear from you. I followed along your travels and during my hellish week, it was a bright light. Thanks for sharing. Hope your backpack made it through...April sounds like a great plan. I'll be keeping my fingers crossed.

I've been following your journey for a while and am crossing my fingers for you!!! I have a really positive feeling about this last try... I went through a really tough miscarriage and ended up concieving our daughter (Brooklyn born 1/16/09) the day that we would have been due with the previous pregnancy... The world works in amazing ways...

Good for you, glad you were able to come to a decision like that. Hopefully April's good for both of us!

I've loved following your travel blog, the retreat sounds really tough and I'm sure you lasted way longer than I could have! Very interesting though all the same and sounds like you did get a lot out of it.
