The Not-So-Sexy Infertility Adventures of a Girl in the Big Apple

I'm Back

Am now officially married in the eyes of both the state and our families.  We had a lovely, lovely trip and wedding, just what we hoped for.  Unfortunately I have to apologize in advance for not posting pictures - I'm having trouble getting everything downloaded for some reason.  Will get to it at some point, I promise!

In the mean time, I'm feeling really good - getting away and being completely absorbed in another set of activities did wonders for my mental/emotional state.  It's really clear to me now how bad it is sitting at home and obsessing about IF stuff....have to work on that.

The best part is that I'm now only a week or so away from kicking off this cycle.  Thank goodness it's finally here, not a moment too soon.  Hopefully I can hang onto this vacation glow as long as possible and keep the anxiety to a minimum.

Got a couple pieces of good news back from testing.  My FSH came in at 7.0 and my karyotype results are normal, so that's a relief.

I did a lot of catching up on blogs yesterday and today - seems like things are progressing pretty well in general.  A lot of people getting further along in their pregnancies and/or starting cycles after long waits.  I hope everyone gets the babies they deserve (including me!)

Am off now to eat some dinner - it's good to be back!


  1. Congratulations! Now for the Honeymoon (almost) baby.

  2. Glad you had a little break from IF related matters. Best wishes to you and your husband! That's great you got good news from CCRM!

  3. Welcome back! Congratulations on being officially married!!

  4. Congratulations on your official marriage :)

    Great news on your test results!

  5. I am sure your mind didn't have much time to totally focus on IF stuff, that is great news about your wedding. I find myself obessing at times too and it's so hard to walk away from researching, I find myself doing it more when I have something actually going on. I am relieved for you, you don't have to deal with an abnormal karyotype, it's makes the cycle even more stressful than it already is. Ready, set, go!

  6. Congratulations on being officially married!

  7. Congratulations on your marriage and I have my fingers crossed for IVF #3 to work!!

  8. We got pregnant (thanks to CCRM and DE) before even thinking of getting married. We are a little backward. On our babymoon last week, he asked me to marry him and I was kind of surprised at the question. I said yes! Not sure when we'll do it. Babies are due in Feb... Anyway, good luck. If you decide to go the DE route, there are a lot of us (recipient) gals around you can lean on.
