For the first time in a long time, I have hope.

It appears my luck has started to change.  I'm a little scared to talk about it for fear tomorrow's RE appointment will snap me back to reality.   But there is a bigger part of me that really feels like this is going to happen.

First my good RE appointment yesterday giving me the okay for IVF.

Then a wonderful person is sending me Follistim that should be here about the time I'll need it for the end of this cycle. THANK YOU.

My new job was supposed to start June 15th which means I'd have to take quite a few days off for ET.  Now it got delayed to June 18th.  Still might have to take a day off.  But that's easy to explain away (I think I'm already feeling a little food poisoning... don't I look a little pale?). 

My father in law got to have chemo yesterday.  He hasn't been able to for a few weeks.  This means his health is actually starting to improve.  

Unbelievable!  Life is sooo good right now.  I am almost ready to assume this IVF will work and let myself enjoy this cycle.  Because you know what?  It totally could work.  And if not now, the next one or the next one.  But here's hoping it is this one.


  1. Yea! I am so happy for you! Things seem to be brightening up!

  2. yay for hope, it is a beautiful thing! I am praying it all works out for you THIS cycle.

  3. This post made me smile. A lot. You have a lot of people pulling for you, including me.

  4. Excellent, and that is a lovely photo on the top of the page.

  5. Your post reminded me of myself when I found out we were moving forward with IVF. I hope this one does work for you!

  6. Glad to hear things are looking up. How did Friday's RE appointment go?
