The TRUE Fertile Effort

Since I won't we trying to conceive for a few months, I decided that once and for all I would make some positive changes in my life...for my health. I have done it all, a little acupuncture here, a little wheat grass there, but I have never fully committed myself to a regimen. Well, in the footsteps of Julia Indichova, the author of Inconceivable I am going to do my best and go balls out.

I am spending this week getting my plan of action together and hope that if I journal here, I might actually do it! I am not sure if anyone is still reading, but if anyone is interested in buddying up, I would love the company.

Moving on...

to IVF. Not sure exactly when, but will be with the next year. Genetic testing, AMH(?), Doppler Ultrasound to be completed in the next few months...and I will begin nursing school in May. If for any reason I can't complete the program they will let me finish with another cohort and, if I have never mentioned how much I love my is why:

I received the following email from her a few days ago...discussing that we will most likely do IVF during a one month break I have - transfer in the 1st week of break and then have 3 weeks to relax as necessary.

"Waiting will not in any way affect your chances. I personally would like to see you finish the program since you will be a fantastic nurse and hopefully may consider doing infertility."

Yep, love her, love her, love her and considering they are a top clinic in the nation...also have a lot of faith in her.

Anyway, it might be a mistake and it might not, but it is the best decision for us, right now.

Will most likely be checking in on the rest of and new cycle sista's, but will post if I have any updates.

My best wishes to you all!

BFN and Questions!

Ok, I know I am a bad blogger...but I have a plea to anyone who might still be IUI #2 was a BFN and now the questions begin. You see, because I never thought it would take me this long to get pregnant, I never thought I would have this decision to make. A while back I was accepted into an accelerated nursing program that lasts one year. I have been thinking of doing this for quite sometime, in fact, I didn't start the program last year because I had just found out I was pregnant...oops.

Anyway, I have a regroup meeting with my RE on Monday to ask her questions...but if we are facing IVF I would really like to hear from people who have gone through it as to what kind of time commitment I am looking at. School is basically like a full time job, so it is not like 100 hours a week or anything but I am just so torn. If I go, at least I will be moving forward with something in my life...I am just scared I will be risking not getting pregnant again...of course I could not go and still not get pregnant. The program starts in May, I will be 32 in November, which is something else to consider.

Any and all thoughts will be greatly both me and my sanity!

What's New?

I am not good at blogging, I love reading them...but I always forget to update. It is great to get my thoughts out there, but sometimes it is overwhelming... the title would suggest, here's the latest:
- J's grandfather diagnosed with metastatic pancreatic cancer, given 2ww to 6mo to live.
- House almost completed, now we have to buy furniture.
- CD 27, trying to wait to test until Saturday
- SIL with 6mo old has announced they will start trying again soon, she got pregnant on her first try.
- Think we may be taking a break if this cycle is a bust.

More next week!
