Impatient is my middle name...first name...and last name!!

I have always said that I was impatient. My Aunt Sue would always tell me that I could wait...when I groaned that I just can't wait any longer. I am getting better, but when I am ready to do something...I am like come on..let's go. And of course, starting the IVF process will be a waiting game.

We went to see our preacher and discussed IVF and all the moral issues. Like freezing embryos..etc. He pretty much agreed with us that we are okay in the moral department. He told us to make sure we were both on the same page..b/c I am on board...but Todd is taking his time. He has always been that way...he really thinks through stuff and wants to make sure he is listening to God and not himself. I wish I could be more like that, but I am too impatient to sit and think. So he plans to pray more about it and let me know. I do think we are leaning towards doing IVF. I mean, I do have an appt. on Tuesday to do that saline ultrasound. Toby has until then to decide for sure.

I really thought that as soon we decided to do IVF. We would set up the appt. and get started. However, it looks like this month is going to be a testing month. Saline ultrasounds...and tons of consent forms to sign. Then my RE will decide my regimen and HOPEFULLY next cycle we will start everything. I know there will be tons of drugs to order and lots of soreness from shots coming up. But I am sooo ready. Bring it on!! Plus, I have learned to give myself the shots..so I will be fine. I am going to put my all into this. Balls to the wall...isn't that a saying. Neways...you get the picture. Now that I am super pumped, maybe I should hit the gym. I will let y'all know how the dr.s appt. goes.. GOD BLESS!!!

Good luck to you, the IVF process does seem very long-but what seemed the longest for me was waiting the two weeks after transfer, everything else seemed easy after those two weeks.

Good luck I hope all of you testing goes well!

All good things come to those who wait:] Much easier said than done! I haven't been through IVF (yet) but I know it requires a lot of planning & patience & prayer to get through it! Good luck with the dr. appt. and getting started with IVF if that is the decision you make.
