It's Friday. It's been 5 days since our ET. I've been at home resting all week. It's been nice, but I do have to say one thing. I have been haunted by Baby shows all day and all week long! I usually love to watch them, but for some reason this week not so much. I did watch a full show today without any tears or bad thoughts. I have also been keeping myself busy by trying to come with a plan if this fails. I do know that I won't do anything for at least a month because my body needs a rest from all the medication, procedures, and stress. I think by me focusing on a game plan just in case we need one keeps my mind off of whether this is going to work or not. I just need to know either way, but I have to patient.

I do have one exciting thing to announce for the week. Our church First Baptist is starting an infertility/pregnancy loss group this Sunday afternoon. Please spread the word to anyone you think would be interested. I talked to one of the women who started this group last night. It made even more excited about it. I guess I'm so happy to be around other women who are going through or have gone through the same experiences. They will be the only one's besides a few friends, the doctor's at ART, and some of the employees of ART who truly understand every emotion that I am or have experienced. I really think it's going to be such a positive thing for me and all of the women who come. We are meeting at 3:30 in room 225. Part of me wishes that Jonathan and all the other husband's could come too. I think that although the men don't physically go through all the treatments that go along with infertility they do experience all the emotions. Maybe that is something that will happen in the near future.

I guess I will stop rambling on. I hope everyone has a wonderful weekend. WAR EAGLE!

Hey - My name is Stephanie and our stories seem so similar. I too did an IVF cycle with Dr. Honea but never made it to transfer - only half of my follicles had eggs in them and I was a poor responder. I too go to FBC and have been going to the support group - it is wonderful. Very small but wonderful.

Oh and no one in my real life knows about my blog so if you know anyone I know - which you probably do at FBC - don't mention it! :)
