Too young for tantrums?
Today I had my appointment with the RE to schedule our next IVF
attempt. Not a day too soon, because CD1 is tomorrow (prelude started
this afternoon). Luckily I filled my bcp prescription immediately
after the appointment.
I had forgotten how long a single IVF attempt takes. The schedule
proposed by the RE would have me starting stims in the first week of
april, that's more than a month away!
This is the plan:
Take bcp for +/-6 weeks
Start sniffing +/- 5 weeks
Wait for period
Baseline echo 4 days later
Start stims baseline echo ok.
You know the rest.
Why 6 weeks of bcp? My RE now said that there should be 6 to 8 weeks
between DH's fever and retrieval (last time he told me 4 to 5 weeks).
I asked whether I could take bcp longer, rather than wait a cycle.
Fine, was the reply.
I'm not entirely certain it's wise (will I be oversupressed?), but if
my doctor says it's ok, I trust him.
I'm trying hard not to give in to negative feelings about this cycle,
mostly I'm doing ok.
Speaking of optimism. Remember that application for a spot in daycare
I put in? It was refused. They won't register our application because
I didn't fill in a due date on the form. Why then did the
administrator fail to mention this requirement, when I expressly asked
whether they needed to know more than the projected start date of the
child at daycare. Grrr. Apparantly, the administrator had added a due
date to the form further than 9 months in the future (well, that's
accurate). And the computer said 'no'.
Was it Shakespeare who said, "Bureaucrat, know thyne own rule"?
If it's due dates they want, I can calculate those. But I'm sure they
won't be pleased if I call them back each month to postpone them. It
won't do me any good either. Ugh. I'm forgetting about daycare for the
Meanwhile, Linnea is doing great on two feet. She has surprised me
recently with a few tantrums though. No major hysterics yet, but a
sneak preview of what's to come? I keep telling her she's too young
for tantrums, those are for terrible two's, not cute 16-month-olds.
She just keeps screaming.
