l.i.b.e.r.a.t.i.o.n. theory

love, life, and the pursuit of liberation


so this is what’s sitting right with my heart right now

  • cancelling this iui cycle. having an insemination on cd 22 when i don’t have pcos doesn’t feel right.
  • get the laparoscopy done in december over winter break
  • taking a couple of months off for my body to rest
  • trying to conceive around february and starting with agressive meds– gonal-f and follistim
  • if not pregnant by the time we move in june, getting ivf done in ny b/c my insurance will probably cover it by then or at least some of it.

this decision has made me feel so much better. i feel like doing it this cycle and the fact that my eggs are not growing properly is just not a good idea. plus, i don’t know for sure if my tubes are open if there was to be a fertilized egg. we can pretty much scratch being pregnant together as a goal, so i feel a tremendous weight off my shoulders because i’ve been feeling pretty guilty about that. i think my body just needs a break mentally and physically.

    I think these are good decisions. I know what you mean about doing an IUI when you feel the egg/s could be too old. With all of this money you are spending you need to be sure.
    At this point, it’s good to just wait and see–but have a plan to back it up.
    I hope you continue to have some feelings of ‘release’ concerning these decisions.

    These are tough decisions, but they are good ones, and hopefully they will help you feel empowered and ready to enjoy a bit of a break for your body. Sometimes that’s just what we need. Sending you hugs.

    thank you all. already, i feel like i’m getting into better touch with myself. i want to release some of this extra weight i’ve put on (never been this size in my LIFE) and i’m off to find a new therapist. so perhaps this is the break i need!
