Thankful Thursday

Today I am thankful for good news about the 2nd SA yesterday. I am thankful that we're headed down the path to having a family. I am thankful that JC and I are learning to communicate better every day.

:::Dancing Around:::

We are good to go for ICSI!! SO happy right now. What a huge relief! JC will be very happy. I think he was a tad bit worried about the word "biopsy" being thrown into the ring. The nurse said that all his genetic testing came back normal, his testosterone level was a bit higher than the first test (yeah!) and there were enough sperm to use for ICSI. PHEW!

She sent everything to the urologist for our consult on 9/17 so we're ready to go.

Now we can enjoy vacation. STAY AWAY EARL!

My eyes are practically swollen shut this morning. Yesterday was a crying day for me. I know my family has the best intentions, but they don't get it. I know I can't expect them to, but it was just a hard day in IF land.

And to add insult to injury- there is a hurricane threatening my vacation. We're supposed to leave on Saturday for Bermuda and stupid Hurricane Earl is making it's way right up the coast in between Bermuda and the US coast. I'm crossing my fingers that it won't rain all week.

My sister is pregnant. Again. My nephew isn't even 5 months old.

That part alone is bad enough. But my whole family has known for over a week and they just didn't want to tell me. That part really sucks.

I hate that I'm that person that no one wants to tell. I hate that I have to be that person. I hate that my immediate reaction to "You're going to be an Aunt again!" was sadness. I hate that I have to try to hard to be happy for my sister. I hate how unfair all of this feels.

Back to it

I'm going back to charting tomorrow. I've been off the charting wagon for two cycles now. I figure that I better just keep track to make sure everything is on the straight and narrow with the ovulating and such. I'd rather not run into any other surprises.

In other health news- my doctor said my TSH levels are down again. 2.77 down from 4.6. She increased the med dose so I can get as close to 1 as possible. At least something is getting better.
