Temperature’s Rising

And by temperature, I mean excitement/anxiety/overwhelming emotions. I don’t know how it happened, but I thought that my RE appointment was next week, as in 13 days from now… and it is just 6 days from now. I. Am. Freaking. Out.*

*Though on a happier note, I've realized that I don't need to call my GYN and get clomid after all. I can do everything through the RE

I read a very poignant post today, while browsing the Stirrup Queen’s blogroll (which you should check-out, if you haven’t already.)Of course, I can't find the site I found it on (but will link back to it when I do). The gist was that the writer was scared to try IVF because it was her One Last Thing to try before there would be nothing left. I'm feeling a little like that. Though there are many, many steps- I will be walking into the place that will make me a birth-mom or I won't be a birth-mom. A hard thing to consider.

Trepidation aside, I really like my RE's office. I was asked to fill out an online patient history, which I find convenient and more accurate than filling out paper in the office. At home I have access to health information and the ability to look up missing information. I also liked this:

I like that here with surgeries and HIV, they ask about acupuncture. This clinic is associated with a wellness center that has acupuncture, yoga, counseling.and weight loss counselors. It is pretty cool and I appreciate the whole body focus.

6 days and counting.
