Weird to say but I'm on the pill

AF arrived on Friday and I called the doctor and got my prescription for birth control pills. I will take them until January 2nd which is when I will go in to see if my ovaries are sufficiently suppressed. If they are, we are off and running and the IVF attempt will officially begin. That's scary to think about.

It could be a great start to a new year or a big expensive bummer of a start to a new year. Time will tell.

I babysat my 10 month old niece on Saturday. She was a great baby. It was a really nice way to spend the day but a painful one, too. My brother has 4 children and another one on the way. They will soon have 5 kids. Wow. And we can't get one.

I'm not jealous. I don't want 5 kids. I grew up in a big family which had its advantages but I'm not looking to repeat (not that I have time to have 8 children unless they all come at once and that is not likely to happen (it didn't happen with IUI so I don't think it will happen with IVF).

I would, however, like to have two children. If possible. Is that asking too much?

That's not asking too much. I posted not too long ago about people being shocked that I wanted more than 1 kid...like infertility means I only get 1 (well, I guess technically it means I could get none)

Good luck with this IVF

I'm hopeful that your IVF attempt will give you a healthy little one. And it is not asking too much.

Best wishes.

Congrats on getting things started with your bcp's...today's my last day on them and I'll start lupron tonight for our FET cycle (we've done 2 ivf's and this is our 1st fet).

You sound really excited and should be...IVF is a big step!

I hope we see lots of BFPs in the the beginning of 2008 - what a great start that would be!

There's nothing worse than growing up in a big family and not having any of your own kids. I'm the youngest of 6!

Looks like we will be cycling about the same time. My IVF starts January 25th!

Hi again,
I'll be right behind you in the journey into IVF - I am just starting my BC pills (yeah, it is weird to be taking them in order to get pregnant)

I hope everything looks great on Jan 2 and this IVF cycle is successful for you. Maybe you'll get twins? Wanting two children is not asking too much - infertility is just so unfair.
