Tick, tock

Waiting, waiting, waiting.

That's what we IFer's are all about. Waiting!

It's day CD9, and I have just a few more days of BCPs to take. I'm already sick of waiting.

Tomorrow I fly to Dallas for work. Just glad I'm not traveling while stimming, not that I know what that will be like, being an IVF "virgin."

Nothing else to report... waiting...

I hate waiting. It's one of my least favorite things to do in the world. I feel your frustration. I hope the next cycle is a successful one!

Waiting is definitely one of the worst parts of TTC, especially with IF. At least you have work to keep your mind occupied! Good luck this cycle!!

It seems like waiting is the norm for infertility treatments. Once you finish on step it's more waiting until the next. Enough to drive a normal person insane.

Ugh, we're wait-ers alright! I'm currently waiting for Aunt Flo so I can start anew. I'm CD26...

Good luck with your IVF! That is exciting stuff. I will be excited to check back and see how it goes!

Hope you have a good flight! I have no words of wisdom on IVF having never done it myself, but I wish you the best of luck with it!

I used to love the foot tapping emoticon on the IVF forum.

I can relate to waiting but hopefully all this will be worth the nine month wait too.

I am visiting from ICLW...No. 125 to say hello and to check out your blog.

It seems like all we infertiles do is wait, wait and wait some more. Wait for our periods to arrive or not arrive, wait to ovulate, wait to take a pregnancy test. I wrote about this a few months ago. http://fertilityfoibles.blogspot.com/2009/06/tired-of-being-in-limbo.html

Best wishes on your first (and hopefully only) IVF, and welcome to the club!
