I was pretty certain I'd be much more relaxed about this upcoming IVF cycle. But, the closer I get, the more little, possible, setbacks get to me. I am waiting for a call from my nurse to tell me about hormone levels. I was in the office on Monday and one level was a bit high. Stress!

On Monday she called at 2pm on the dot. It is almost 3pm.

What is probably happening: she has many people to call, or is still waiting for the lab to send her the report.
What I keep imagining is happening: the bloodwork show an unacceptable number, so the Dr. has decided to make me wait a month.

The latter could be true, even if the former is true. Ugh.

Lots of people discuss wanting to take time off of work, for IVF. Although I understand wanting to be able to do appointments flexibly, not to worry about when you show up to work, I do think it is easier for me if I am working.

While I was in class this morning I didn't think of any of this, for even a second! I have another class to teach at 630pm. I think I'll go do some busy work and pretend I don't know what time it is.


  1. I think the waiting is the hardest part. When you're cycling, you can get behind the idea that you're DOING something and that there is hope. Waiting feels like you're just...waiting...I hate it.

    Hang in there.


  2. Good for you for keeping busy. Best to you and Mr.Seeds.

  3. waiting always sucks. I totally empathize with thinking about all the ramifications of not getting the call from a treatment provider.

  4. Ohhh, waiting is so hard! I'm sorry they haven't called you back yet.

    Hopefully you will have a message when you get out of class...fingers crossed that all the levels are fine!

    I'm having a hard time with the waiting too. I want to fast-forward through time!!
