Mock transfer schedualed!

So exciting in the middle of my packing today my IVF coordinator calls and scheduled our Mock transfer for the 1st. Yeah we are getting some where... Boo we have to pay $5000 on that day. But I am ready to have my baby that money doesn't matter. I know I am meant to carry and have my own baby. Well my back is killing me and the packing never ends if we want to be done with this house by Monday!

Half and Half

How is it to feel so scared and so excited? The first thought is paying $5000 for something that might not work and second is this the only way I get to carry my baby! I saw the Time Travlers Wife last night and it was a little slow but good. I needed a good cry last night. Waiting for me to get my cycle day 1 so that I can get a few more test this month is not a fun time especially when it wants to be a few days late. I have given up on that excitement on missed periods i just wait till it have been at least 15 days past the day I was supposed to get it. Well this morning I started spotting so I am glad I didn't test. It is just so hard to want something so much that you have never even had!

Busy day with more waiting

Well I didn't sleep well last night as you noticed my post in the middle of the night. I started the day with an interview with the US Census. I tested for this interview in may and only got the call for the Management interview last week. The interview went OK. I don't think the people who actually interviewed me will be hiring me because all 3 of them wrote down notes on how I answered every question. They said that i wouldn't be called till September and wouldn't have any training till October. WOW gotta love hurry up and wait!
On to the second part of my day the visit to the RE. If you have done fertility treatments before you know the wait. Today was 45 mins not to bad. LOL So with talking to Dr S he says if we are in with doing the Mini IVF he is looking at us as good candidates. He said because I still have 2 more tests to have done we wont be doing it with the August period we will be doing it with September. That will be a baby due in June. This was a little hard to hear as I don't want to wait anymore but I understand not rushing. I will still need a saline test (a catheter that will inject a sterile saline solution (salt water) into your uterus will be inserted into your vagina. This solution helps to expand your uterus even more, thereby increasing the visibility and allowing for a very detailed look at your reproductive organs.) This just gives them an extra look at my beautiful heart shaped uterus. Also I am going to get a Mock Transfer- This test is where a thin catheter is inserted into the uterus to measure its depth and also to determine how to insert the catheter with the greatest ease during the real transfer. Don't they both just sound the most fun.
Dr. S also said that I will be taking both Clomid and Follistim help produce the eggs. With the Follistim he said i shouldn't have lining issues.
I had really hoped to do this ASAP meaning in AUG so to have to wait a whole nother month puts me in a sad place. I hate waiting!!!


We go to the RE tomorrow to find out what he says about all our tests results and what the next step will be.. Wish us luck!

Well it is a uneventful day. I should start packing..... Well at least find boxes so that i am not stressed towards the move. My friend Amanda and her wonderful kiddies are out of town and I miss them. They keep me entertained most days. I get too lazy being home and with not working since may there is no extra money to spend. September will certainly be a tight month for us with doing the Mini IVF and new house with deposit and all that. No complaints though. Big changes but wonderful things!

A day of ultrasound

So the morning started out early with the AC repair man coming over to fix the dripping in to the house AC.... It is still dripping so IDK what he fixed.. LOL
Then I went to go look at a few homes for sale and for rent. Well we are staying renters! We found (with the help of Tracy) this beautiful 3/2 home for only $75 more dollars then what we are paying for this house falling apart around us!
Then it was off to USF-IVF clinic DH and i both had US today. I am used to getting mine he has never had one down there on his before. He only had the Tech in the room, I had him the 2 interns and the DR.. Everybody got a peek of my lady parts but it was a good US. The dr says I have a Bicornuate uterus, commonly referred to as a heart-shaped uterus. He said at this time there is nothing to worry about. It is quite common. Well he also said I have a 18mm sized egg in my right overie so I will be ovulating in the next 48hrs. He also said it looks like my left overie might be attached to my uterus from some scar tissue. Dr S said it wasn't a worry just something to be aware of. So everything seems to be looking normal on my side of the coin. So on the 11th we meet with Dr. S again and decide about doing the Mini-IVF I have so much hope that everything is falling in to place. I should work on trying to lose 5 more pounds over the month but I have just been a bit lazy. Well it has been a busy day!


Well tomorrow is sort of a second starting point of our fertility journey. I am getting an ultra sound to see how my uterus and ovaries look in the middle of a cycle,
next week I should be getting my period and that should be the start of a MiniIVF.
I am so excited about this procedure, not about spending $4000 but the thought that in May we could have a baby Smith. Last summer we did 4 IUI in Louisiana. Well here we are a year later and back with the drs.
I have so much more that is our story but that will be for
another post. Well tomorrow will be interesting. Time for sleep!

Hello All

So it has been 3 years since DH and I decided to start trying for baby Smith. Nobody ever assumes it will be any harded then having lots of sex with your husband. At least that is what I assumed. The next three years would end up being a rollercoster of illness, dissapointment, hope, despair, moving, surgery, and now HOPE again!
