A Bang on the Ear

Thank you, girls, for the comments but unfortunately your great advice is all for naught. There is no way on G*d's green earth that I am stimming before 9th August. No way, no how. There is no fighting the schedule or the IVF co-ordinator. That road finds you locked in a supply closet, gagged with the obligatory exam table towel, when you should be in theatre for retrieval!

I did speak to my consultant who is very well-respected in the UK IVF field and I trust her. My lack of follicles is not necessarily anything to do with the length of down-regging but more to do with the diabetes and the PCOS. In fact, the longer I am on the Synarel, the better my hormones become. I know that myself. I do know that I lose weight on the Synarel much, much easier than I do any other time. Silver lining, anyone?

We shall see, won't we?

This week, thank jeebus I have had tons of work to distract me. I do not know how people do this who do not work. What else do you do all day, other than fret about your ovaries?

Of course, if Mr P has the winning ticket for the Euromillions lottery tonight (£77 million or $150 million!!!), I will not be worrying about anything. I could buy my own IVF clinic hahaha!

Day 22 of Synarel - 10 days to go! Do not expect any scintillating posting between now and then cos I ain't in the mood.

Glad you have a silver lining. And I agree, being busy is the ONLY way to survive.

Yay for silver linings! Hey, if you win the lottery will you buy me an IVF clinic, too? And, yes, not working leaves a lot of time open for obsessing.

Um, yeah. Last cycle I wasn't working and spent every waking hour googling IVF details. Way more stressful. This time, I could only spend half my waking hours googling--much better.

Yeah, it pisses me off that I do have to work when undergoing IF treatments, but then again, I'd much rather be at work than at home obsessing.

As for the Euromillians thing...sorry sister, I hear someone in Ireland won it. No £77 million winfall for either you or me.

I'm glad you're getting the individualized attention and protocol that you need. And, what a great silver lining!

I hope the 10 days pass quickly! And even though I do work full-time, I still spend way too much of my hours at the desk obsessing over my ovaries.

Understand re the stimming, glad to hear you have a sliver of a silver lining. It's a bugger about the euromillions isn't it? H was going to buy a ticket, and then, he didn't. Oh well.

Ah, I knew there was a reason why I should start playing the lottery. An IVF clinic owned and operated by infertiles for infertiles?? That's brilliant!! GL with your cycle.

Hope you don't mind if I jump in here...I'm always looking for ladies in my *ahem* age range to visit in blog land. If you don't mind I am linking you on my blog, its just easier for me to remember to check in on you. Good luck with the continued snifing.

Not to be off topic, but are you a Waterboys fan?
