The Calm Before the Storm

It’s getting closer, you guys. We are going to Texas in just a few weeks, and I am starting to freak out! So check out my latest post at mom.me.

I give you Overwhelmed Cat to open things up.

I feel like this is the calm before the storm. This is the last week before the start of my cycle and everything goes to hell. I’ve spent the past month after choosing my egg donor just sitting around. Waiting. I hate waiting.

Whenever Chris and I go on a big trip, I am a total freak in the weeks leading up to it. I just want to go already! I pack as much as humanly possible in advance. I scour the Internet for places to go, even though my husband has already planned out the trip to a T. I spend the weeks restless, antsy, and the night before we are to leave, I can’t sleep in anticipation.

So why should traveling to Texas again to get pregnant be any different?

Just FYI, I've tried to read a couple posts on your new blog that you link to, and it only partially loads on my phone. Not sure if it's just me, but thought I'd let you know in case anyone else is having issues, too. I haven't been able to read any of your posts :-/

Hi Adi, thanks for letting me know. Is it the mom.me site that won't load the whole article? I know on blogher they have issues with their mobile site where I always have to "request desktop site" from the menu on my phone.

You're so right, traveling for IVF is hard… crazy what lengths we have to go to for less expensive cycles, huh? Hoping that everything goes as smoothly as possible with the setup for your cycle! I'm excited for you, Risa!

IVF is hard. Traveling to do I IVF is a whole other beast. My hope is that with this new protocol and you managing stress that this time goes smoother. And fingers are crossed for some very good news soon.

I did donor eggs too. I'm wishing you all the best.

I can never sleep before a trip either. You have all the more reason to be a mess leading up to it because so much is on the line. I am praying so hard for you that this is the lucky time it's going to work!

IVF alone is hard so I can only imagine that adding traveling into all of the timing would be a recipe for stress 🙁 I am very hopeful for you and wish you the very best at getting your babies here in Texas!
