Brought to You by the Letter "O"

According to my mittelschmertz and handy-dandy OPK, I am ovulating. As I type. Oh -- there it goes. All I can think is, "Who gives a singular shit?"

My husband insists we "try" anyway. Try to what? I think he's just on a (let's be honest, reasonable) campaign to get some semi-regular sex while my body is NOT a toxic dump of hormones. Get it while it's hot, sweetheart. This love machine is cranking out nookie for a limited time, after which it will be re-geared to make eggs and host embryos. Again.

In my head I am going down the commitment path toward one more IVF cycle with my eggs, provided the new RE can cook up a plan that gives me both renewed hope and sufficient confidence. The next step after that, if more steps are needed, will probably be to either move forward with a donor egg cycle or to consult with specialists in Washington, D.C. or Colorado. The expense of either scares the pants off me.

Speaking of which, I have wifely duties to attend to, so please excuse me as I now "try" to get pregnant. Hahahahahaha. Haha. Hahahahaha. Ha. That's rich.

I love your sense of humor! BTW, I hope you don't have to go that far (DC/CO)... but I have also heard some good stuff about http://www.ivf.org/welcome.html (affiliated with Cornell in NY) ...if you are interested in checking them out.

You're hilarious! Funny how trying to make a baby the "old-fashioned" way seems so antiquated once you go through a couple of rounds of IVF. I'm sure your hubby is happy the love machine is in working order again. Ours will be up and running soon too! ;)

We've discussed going out to Colorado too. I've heard they're like the IVF Gods in Denver. The lady I had written about meeting at acupuncture that went through 10 tries of IVF had her success in CO. We were thinking about doing the phone consult and if decided to move forward with them then R can make a snowboarding trip out of it too. I need to look into how the insurance stuff works in another state though. So it may not be an option unless we wanted to poop (that's funny--pay out of pocket). I feel like we need to give Dr. M another shot, if he thinks it's worth it. I'm so ready to be done with all of this and don't want to regret not using the chances we have via insurance. Stupid infertility. Anyway, hope you're having some fun kickin' booties...and have some LUCK!
