I finally decided that I wanted to wait until next year 2009 to start the IVF treatment. (No 4) I feel I need the space to focus on the building blocks of creating a baby, by first focusing on me. Even I had been planning to in the last few months, I haven’t been able to give it my all because of other distractions, like overseas visitors and travel. So now is the time. I am really starting now on general health, eating and exercising. Both need improvement, although I am not doing too badly on the eating. I was told that my cholesterol was very high 294 today, which is amazing because my diet is actually pretty good. Although I believe it is a genetic problem in my family. We also need time to do the research so we know who we want to go with – RE -wise, when the time comes in January. Yes, we will not be wasting any time once the new year hits! We both have a couple of trips planned in October and November, and it is going to be crazy trying to physically plan an IVF around those. So our decision has taken the pressure off! And I do feel better for it. Now I can devote my time to really focusing on making a nice fuzzy warm landing place for that little embie/s when the time comes.
So who is going to join me in the Fertility Foundation Powercircle?! Whatever stage of the cycle or treatment you are in, feel free to join, to get the much needed support through this process. We will make the journey lighter, and perhaps even have a little fun! I really want that for myself in the upcoming preparation. What do you want for yourself?
