Spring Thaw

I've made an appointment with Dr. Successful IVF in NYC to consult on my upcoming FET. My plan is to consult with him to be certain that I get the best care at my local clinic. We wanted to do the cycle in NYC, but NY state doesn't allow the transfer of embryos into the state.

Off we go! My appointment is in early May. Suppose I should get busy talking to the local guys, too.

Other things on my to do list:

  • I'm pleased with my weight -- 7 lbs under pre-pregnancy. I'd like to lose another 10 lbs before I do the cycle in June. That will get me back down to where I was on my wedding day.
  • Must exercise! About all I've been doing lately is walking. I was doing so good about taking workout classes for a while there. Then we all got sick.
  • Continue to strengthen core and pelvic floor. My poor body. I've had so much hip pain since giving birth. And urinary incontinence.

Ummm, I think that's it. It would be nice to get caught up at work and get the house organized, but I've just about given up on that!


  1. Wow! You are going for it! I am impressed. Very exciting!

  2. It's really happening! So exciting!

    I was hoping the whole pelvic pain/incontenance/birth side effects went away eventually. *sigh* Aack. I'm still having pain from a pinched sciatic nerve and a torn stomach muscle from when they dug out the placenta. Pregnancy is meant for the young, I think! (I probably should've thought of that 20 years ago...)

  3. Wow, I just took a peek to check in on you, what a crazy time you have had...glad you're going for it...I wish I had embryos left from ours as I would give my eye teeth for another child.

    Will put you back on my regular reading and be thinking of you.

    OH-and poo on the incontinence, I can SO relate and hate those dribbles, they suck.
