IVF #5 official launch day

Thank you everyone for all your good wishes and support. I really needed it today.

I was SO nervous this morning. I could barely sit still. Yet, I managed to be 40 minutes late to the morning clinic. I just didn't want to sit around for a long time in the waiting room feeling like a loser. I was so late they were waiting for me! Ah, well, it's not like they don't know I am high maintenance already.

I was very nervous going in, but it all went well. Belinda and I chatted for quite a while waiting for our blood draw. It was nice. After we parted ways, she called me to see how I was doing. She could see "something" in my eyes. I was so touched! I was a bit sad/happy/excited/scared.

All is good to go. The nurse (my favorite RE wasn't in today) counted 12 antral follicles for Belinda. I am off the BCP's and Belinda's last day is tomorrow. On Saturday Belinda should start the big drugs.

Thanks again for everyone's comments. I hope I return the favor often enough.
