There’s never enough time between dildo cam sessions.

And just like that, we’re back in the game. Which feels so weird, because I don’t really have to DO anything. I start lupron next week and then vivelle. I had a dream last night that I used three vivelle dots to make one stick. Which means, I think about infertility FAR too much.

Our consult with Dr. Nice (aka Dr. Pompy, because Vanessa said he has a pompadour in his web picture. ok, so the picture is a little dated, and his hair is different, but the name stuck). He was extremely honest about his thoughts. He said that luteal phase defect is something that’s bigger back east and that if it’s a healthy pregnancy, the progesterone should sustain itself. He also thought that the fact that I’ve gotten pregnant in the past makes him believe that is hould happen and if it does, it should happen soon, but obviously, there are no guarantees. I went in feeling completely hopless and I left feeling, a smidge (smidget) less hopless. I have no expectations and have fully accepted that we’re most likely going to end up with no children, but at the same he said to keep a cautiously optimistic attitude.

Then there’s also the issue of transferring our embryos over to the new clinic, which takes precision, severe organization, and coordinated grace. And we’re the ones that have to bring them over.

Which means, I see this whole thing become something of a fucked up sitcom, where you have a hard time even watching because it’s just so uncomfortable to see the assholery ensue. As I was writing this, Dr. Nice completely went out of his way to research companies that actually pick up and deliver the embryos for you, and then called to tell us about it. Even if we aren’t successful with him, he already walks on water in my eyes. Let’s all bow to Dr. Nice for being, well, NICE.

Here’s to hope! *clink* I wish the very best for you. Now back to quietly cheerleading from my corner.

Good guy that doc..all the medical info you know..it boggles my mind who you can roll it out like its the normal thing to know. You have as much knowledge as most of the docs it sounds like.

Dr. Pompy is the man you seek. He acts like a human and cares that you are IF and seeking baby. Dr. Pompy can have any of my kidneys, should he need them.

We like Pompy.

And I understand that frozen embryos fit real well in the cup holder in Vulvas.

Hi Statia. I am trying to put together a resource of who in the blogging world is cycling each month and what they are doing so that we all know where to send the love…:) It is at cyclesista.blogspot.com. Would you like me to put this next cycle on thesite? Let me know. Good luck for this cycle. Meg

An embryo delivery company? Genius, pure genius.

I am really becoming fond of Dr. Nice – even after just this post. A RE actually reserached something for you rather than you having to spend hours googling and then bringing it to his attention? Wow – now that is revolutionary. Thinking of you Statia, and glad you are back in the game.

Oh, I knew that you would love him. He’s fantastic. :)

Is he making you do the lupron challenge thing?
