I can't get away from it

OMG. I just got back from a business trip. It was a conference my boss was invited to, but couldn't attend, so I took her place. It was on Aging for God's sake, and 4/7 presentations mentioned infertility. Holy crap. Really. I was in another state, secluded in a nice hotel, and really thought I could "forget" it for a bit. One quote I remember (b/c I wrote it down!) is that 20% of women in their early 40's are childless. Now, this obviously doesn't account for those that are childless by choice...but STILL. Do you really need to bring this up at a conference on aging???


My IVF plan has changed a bit. Turns out Dr. K is out of town 2 weeks in March. So, to ensure that I am ready for ET when she is in STL, they put me on bcp for 23 days. It seems SO counter-productive, but it is what it is. I'll start Lupron on 2/11 and stims on 2/27.

At least the BCPs feel like progress. At least I am doing something.

Blah. Not having a good day.

Ugh - I'm so sorry. Nothing like being slapped in the face with IF, esp. when you least expect it!
