Lilypie Expecting a baby Ticker

We are clear for take off!

I went to go for my blood work and u/s this morning. Favorite nurse just called me to tell me that everything looks good and to go ahead and start stims on Sunday. I guess it is time to say that IVF #1 is officially under way. This is kind of weird, but I am a little excited...maybe because there is this little feeling inside me that thinks that this might work.

Two things happened at the clinic today that was a little weird. First of all, the clinic staff knows me personally at this point. As I was checking out this morning, Smiley Receptionist was helping someone else, so she looked up and said "hold on MoMo, I will be right with you". Whoa! I was thinking, how did you know my name? I was shocked, and I thought to myself, this is a sign that I've been going to this clinic way too long.

Second, the couple that Smiley Receptionist was helping out is an old colleague of mine(the DH, let's call him Mr. Accountant). I kept looking at him and I wasn't sure if he remembered me, it's been 6 years since we last saw each other and neither one was married.. I was waiting for a reaction, he didn't say anything so I just left and I was thinking that maybe it wasn't the same guy. I went to work and didn't think about it anymore. Then I get a phone call and it was Mr. Accountant(he remembered where I work and called the switch board...very impressive Mr. Accountant!) and I was so glad he called. We talked and I found out that they have been trying for 2 years and this was their first time at my clinic. They were also seeing Dr. K. I was really happy to see him, but I wished we crossed paths somewhere else other than the clinic. You never wish this on anyone, especially someone that you know.

Hooray for the all-clear! Keep that enthusiasm as long as you can. Meanwhile, we can go down this road together - I started stims last night.

Yippee!!! I'm so happy you get to get things going here!!!! Keep the hope going hon- it can only help!!! I'm feeling strangely hopeful for this cycle too. I think it is so thoughtful and understanding of you to not be happy about seeing someone you know going through this horrible journey. What a sweetheart! I'll keep checking in on ya!

Great news that you are going to start on Sunday. I am still waiting for AF to make an appearance so that we can start. Was hoping for the weekend because I have had it with the anticipation and I just want to get going! I'll keep checking back to see how things are progressing! Good luck.

I am really glad you are on your way!

It's always nice to run into an old colleague/acquaintance; it's just too bad it had to be under these circumstances.
