Sorry it's been so long since the last post. There's really not been much to tell you. Plan A has not materialized although the willingness to help was there. So we've got to move on to plans B and C. It's been a busy week and V. hasn't had the chance to move forward on Plan B. I was really hoping I'd have something positive to fill you all in on by now, but alas, that is not to be.....yet. If all goes well, V. may be able to make the pitch later this week. I'm trying very hard to not to nag at him about this, as it's not an easy thing to do, to ask someone to help financially. I know that he wants this as much as I do, and that he's not going to drag his feet unnecessarily.
On a separate note, I'm going to be away for 12 days with my mom in sunny Florida at a spa at the beginning of March. I'm looking forward to it for a couple of reasons. First, it's Florida in March and it's been so freakin' cold here this month, that a little warmth would be really nice. Second, this place is vegan so I should be able to shed the few pounds I put on at Christmas. And third, I haven't really had an opportunity to spend time alone with my mother in a long time. We have a pretty good relationship I think, but it can always use some quality time together. Of course when she mentioned wanting to go everything went through my head - do I say yes and assume we wouldn't have been able to start the process for the IVF by then? Do I say no on the off chance that we will have been able to secure the money and start the process this month? After all, that would mean we'd be about to retrieve and then transfer during that time. Or do I say yes, and hope that we're cycling and those 12 days fall right in the middle and don't impact anything. I basically thought reasonably positively and went with option C. I'm hoping that we're able to start with D.'s (and my) February cycles so that for the first four weeks we're on birth control pills to regular our cycles and the injections don't start until I get back (or at least while I'm away). That way retrieval/transfer will be late March early April. I hope that's how it all goes down anyway. :)
So, that's it for now. Look for an update later in the week (I hope).
