I hope you are all doing well. I am in the Bahamas - been here since Tuesday. Jack wanted to take a vacation before we started IVF and this was the only week we could go so we left last minute. I have started my BCP's and we have an appointment on May 7th for u/s & b/w and I start Lupron on April 27th.
First off I want to say that I have caught up on all the blog updates and I cant believe how many of you are now pregnant!! I am soo happy for you all and so looking forward to hearing all the updates...I am also happy to know that there is still hope for all of us still here with our BFN's. You make it seem possible and for that I am so thankful!
Ok secondly - I made a big mistake. Jack said he thought he remembered them saying that if we had intercourse it had to be with protection - I - of course, do not remember this and say why whats the big deal we are on the pill ahah...so suffice to say we had unprotected sex!!!! OMG a married couple has to be careful. WELL, I called and she told me that yes, we are not supposed to have unprotected sex...OOppppssss....laugh.....so is my cycle cancelled before it even starts? haha nope...today is only day 8 so we are safe...thank god so on to using condoms...can you believe it - after all these years trying to get pregnant we have to use condoms...Yuck! Well at least I don't have to stop this cycle...close call though!
Ok now thirdly, I know that I have said this before to you all (and this is no bearing on ANY of my pregnant friends) BUT, can I please go on vacation and NOT see another freaking pregnant belly. They are literally all over the place here...its like they all decided to come here...The first person I saw was pregnant and then it proceeded from there...I, understand that I DO NOT know what these women have gone through to get where they are...one looks about 40 and who knows could be pregnant from IVF but the others are all about my age with about 2 year olds and a big old belly...Im sorry I try to understand but sometimes I just want it not to be thrown in my face - I know they don't know but it just blows...
So I decided when I get pregnant - I'm going to go on vacation too and I am going to wear my suit so you can see my cute belly - cause you know what - after all these years I deserve to parade my belly around too!!!
Lastly, anyone who reads this that has been struggling with IF (cause I know some of my loyal followers are friends that are either pregnant or don't want to be pregnant yet) BUT - do me one favor...Go and buy the book " A Few Good Eggs" 2 chicks dish on overcoming the insanity of infertility. Out of all the books I have read - and there have been a ton! this book is THE BEST!!! Trust me...Go and order it on amazon - its soo cheap! And Enjoy - and let me know what you think....
Love you all!
