AF is taking her sweet time again (thank you, Lupron). I went back to my October calendar and looked at exactly how late she was with that cycle (I am usually like clockwork). Well, she was due on Sunday and didn't get here until late Friday night. So, if all goes similarly this cycle, I am putting off the trip to Colorado by almost a week, which may help with getting DH out there in time to give me the trigger shot, but won't help with having my mom here to watch the dogs (I'll call in the dog sitter, I hope). What a pain. So, Brett keeps hoping that she will hold off longer so that he can make it out there for the shot, and part of me agrees with him, but I have had bad AF symptoms since Saturday and am cranky and just want to get this all over with!
Besides that, nothing much here. Just finished watching part of the Today show and getting angrier and angrier at the reaction to the mom of 14. To be honest, I struggle with what I am actually angry at. First, no one should be able to tell her that she can't have more kids if she wants them, even if she had 6 already and is a single mom (who cares, really). All that I think that information should have done was tell them that they shouldn't be putting 6 back in because she's already proved that her uterus works well enough (5x over). Though, I am confused about how she was able to afford treatment, etc when she can't even afford food for her 6 other children (food stamps). However, the only thing that is really ticking me off now is how this is going to impact my life in the near future. All they said all day today, repeatedly, is "but the guidelines say only 1 or 2, no more, in a woman under 35"....they said this about 10 times during a 15 minute segment. That is true, without other issues. I'm under 35 (well, not by much anymore) and several times I've put 4 very pretty embryos back in...but I've never had a baby, and have had several (many) failed IVF's already, so should I only be allowed to transfer 1 or 2 now? If I wait another month and transfer late June instead of in May, when we are hoping to do our FET, then I'll be over 35 and how many can we transfer then? Doctors really do need to be able to retain some wiggle room in these guidelines and I pray that we never adopt actual laws dealing with these issues...that would just be scary. Now, I'm just sick of all this media coverage of that crazy woman, can we concentrate on more important things?
