|Oh AF, you dirty, bloody bitch.|
Well, she did her best to thwart my plans. She arrived two days early, making my last cycle 27 days. This would have put my initial consultation visit at the NYC clinic on CD7, when it was supposed to have been CD2-5.
I had already booked my plane tickets (through Expedia). Changing my flight would have cost me $150 per ticket. Looking at the prices of flights, I would basically be spending an extra $1,000, on top of the $300 I had already spent on tickets. Needless to say, this did not please Buster.
Some fighting ensued, and I came to realize that perhaps I should have just planned to drive all along. Driving isn't the most convenient, but it makes the most sense when unpredictable AF is dictating your plans.
I called the clinic the next morning (Thursday). The study coordinator asked if I could come in the next day for my blood work.
Um... yeah. That's not gonna work so well...
My next option was to have my blood work done locally and keep my upcoming appointment. This option sounded MUCH better. I was beyond relieved.
So this morning, I had my CD3 blood work done, and they assured me it would be at the clinic by the time of my appointment.
I also (finally) received my lab results from my pre-IVF screening, and everything is normal and ok! Another hurdle cleared.
I am getting more and more excited for my upcoming appointment. I know there is a chance that we will not be accepted into the study, but I think the odds are in our favor here (which is bizarre, because the odds never seem to be in our favor!).
Yes, the title of this post is a Voldemort quote. I know you were wondering.
Is anyone else watching Project Runway this season? I'm really enjoying it (but that's no surprise!). I'm not quite sure who I'm rooting for to win. I'm a fan of Anya, I know that. And Olivier. I really like Olivier, actually. I wish he would smile just once, though.
My friend Lisa over at The Pursuit of Pregnancy is auctioning off some TTC and baby-related items to help fund her upcoming plans to go the route of surrogacy. Stop by and see if there is anything you could use!
One last thought before I end this. What is up with this website gothise.com?? I had never heard of it, but recently it has been bringing a lot of viewers to my blog. I went to the site, and it wanted me to sign up and join, which I don't want to do. Any other bloggers notice an increase in viewers coming from that site? If you are a reader who made it here from gothise.com, can you give me some insight?
