    Well good luck! I will be starting IVF soon (April). I am nervous, but excited about starting that process. I also took some time off...since around November. The time off has been good.

    Good luck to you!

    I thought I was going crazy too! My DH even made comments about how much I was "thinking" about it. I still do think about it, but it hasn't been to the extreme I was at before!

    IVF isn't covered under my insurance either...actually NONE of the infertility things we have done have been covered. I don't know how many times we will be able to afford IVF, but hopefully one time is the charm!

    Are you doing IUI or trying on your own with the clomid?

    LOTS OF BABY DUST TO US!

    I will be doing IUI doc still thinks it will work this way because I had 2 pregnancies this way but both our angel babies now. No fertilit is covered for me not even the meds but like the saying goes sometimes you have to pay for what you want and i been paying in more than one way but i try to keep positive thoughts that this will be it this time. Lots of baby dust to us

    I actually haven't updated my signiture...I am 37 and he is 38! I hear you about the biological clock screaming. I always think "is this going to be the year?" then the year is over and I have to think that all over again! Hopefully this is our year for both of us!

    Just started the BC in April. The lab at the REs will be closed the middle of May for whatever reason, so I had the option to do retrieval the first part of May or the last part of May. I chose the end of May. I have a lot going on the first part. I go in on May 17th for u/s and start the meds on May 18th. I have had so many things going on with school, that I really haven't had time to think about anything. I got sinus junk over Easter, so I am still trying to get over that too. I don't know if it is the BC pills or the drainage that is making me feel nauseous, but I will be hungry, so I eat and then I just feel awful. I am thinking it is the drainage. I haven't had much of a appetite so that is a plus!

    How are things with you? When will you start back up again?

    I think I'll be doing at least another month of BCPs. I want to be sure to be covered and paid for maternity leave! The house hunt is winding down, too. We got our first offer last night and are negotiating on closing on our house. If all goes well, we'll be in the new house by mid-May. It would be nice to be able to paint, move things and do minor renovations without worrying about what I may be breathing in!

    The adoption nonsense should be wrapping up in the next month or two, so it will be nice to have that out of the way, too. Lots less stress during TTC. I may end up waiting two more months. I need to count out my cycles. DH is going away for work for a week in June. No sense in medicating myself if he's not going to be around to BD.

    Long story short, I'm not sure just when we'll start again but it will be in the next few months. I've been back and forth about waiting even longer, but this process has already dragged and I'm afraid of how long it's going to end up taking! I'm just nervous about finances, really. Two kids in daycare is NOT cheap!!!

    Glad to hear things are going well. It's a blessing to be busy in this process. The less we think about what's going on, the better.
