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?
