I’ve got my fingers crossed and sending sticky vibes to a woman at work who is currently going through her second IVF cycle. Like us, her first cycle was bust with nothing in the deep freeze for round two. This time with different drugs, growth hormones and a lot of good luck she got the same amount of eggs, but of better quality. So far one has been transferred, four are frozen and her clinic is waiting on one more to mature a bit more to see if it is of freezable quality.
She’s been really open about the whole process her and her fiancee are going through and we’ve spend probably way too much work time discussing medications, cycles, eggs, sperm and other IVF stuff. It feels really good to be able to discuss this openly with someone else, especially since during our IVF cycle we were quite worried to let anyone know what was happening before we could give a definite positive answer.
So sticky vibes to C at work and her 5 day old blastocyst, and here’s hoping that in two weeks time I can say I’ve got another Belly Buddy.
In the mean time, suffering from a cold with little medication I can take is making me feel miserable… and now Lawyer has sucumbed to my lurgy too. The only good thing has been having 4 days of couch time, rewatching Glee and knitting while getting kitty cuddles.
