/ The RE's Muse: A normal Friday

The RE's Muse

After 4 years of infertility, 2 surgeries, 1 miscarriage, and 19 months of high risk pregnancies, hubby and I now have two little women in our lives--one a toddler, the other not far behind. Buckle your seatbelts, it's gonna be a wild ride.

A normal Friday

Whoo-hoo! Karyotyping on A (yep, I have just somewhat 'outed' the hubby) came back normal. We're two for two on that front.

The magic 8 ball ClearBlue Fertility Monitor revealed today to also be a peak day so lots of "bow-chick-a-bow-now" going on in the Dee house through tomorrow. (Bow (as in 'take a bow')-chick-a-bow-now being the typical music 'soundtrack'--and I use that term loosely here--of bad porno movies.) Don't wanna toot our own horns but toot toot, 5x in 48 hours never hurt anyone (well, okay, it did hurt me back in July when I got that inflamed Bartholin's gland with all that post-IUI back-up sex but hey, sometimes you gotta take the bad with the good).

Speaking of tomorrow, A and I are starting the day off with his and hers blood draws at the lab and then going to an international adoption seminar down in Ft. Lauderdale. Just to kind of feel things out and learn more, particularly about the south American programs (A's heritage). I--like most of you--am a planner in all this--it's the only bit of possible control over something that's completely uncontrollable; gotta have a plan B, C, and D. We're currently on B, know what C will be (IVF), and are now investigating a potential D. Hope the seminar is helpful or else that'll be half a day of my life I can't ever get back...and a Saturday too, that should mean it counts double in the grand scheme of things.

I'm glad to hear that the karyotyping came back normal for both of you, and I hope the seminar proves to be helpful and informative. I'm all about having plans B, C, and D, too. Have fun with the "bow-chick-a-bow-now" this weekend!

I'm not the only one who thinks that type of music. Funny - in the Little Touch Leap pad, one of the songs sound EXACTLY like that. I always laugh :)

I like your plans...sounds promising - and glad you are so open minded. Always the best plan.

Have fun...and I'll take your advise not to test...again :) (Had to do it once to see if the pregnancy tests I bought work :) ).

Yes, plans. It's the only way I cope. Usually the seminars are good because they want you to sign up with them. You probably know this, but if you're thinking of SA, Guatemala has the biggest and most consistent program.
