After a very disappointing round 1 of trying to grow eggs, I came off of the meds as I mentioned in the post before.  I began my hormonal period from having so many hormones controlling it for 18 days, and am now waiting for my natural one. I mean, who doesn't want to...

 This week was perhaps the most difficult emotionally.  I knew when I chose to go down this route that it be a roller coaster of all kinds.  Perhaps even like the rickety old wooden ones seeing as how aching my back was from being in an induced PMS state for 18 days......

I never take the first answer as the real answer when it comes to medical anything.  Its one of the perks of coming from a medical family.  When I say that, let me be clear on what I mean. My mom is a R.N. in Occupational Health, one aunt was in Labor and Delivery as a...

 Looking at donors is weird.  However, it is what dating profiles SHOULD be. Let's start at the very beginning, as Maria said in "Sound of Music".....

In my first consultation, at the end, Doc asked me if I had started looking at donors.  I laughed and said "nooooo...
