Here we go again! I'm on day 3 of stims today and so far all is well.
Day 2 FSH = 7.0
E2 = 30
LH = 7.5
AFC = 4-6 on each side.
Numbers look great, same as always. But we aren't fooled this time. We're just hoping that somehow, some way, the result will be different than all of the other times. Of course you know how the saying goes about doing the same thing over and over again but expecting a different outcome? Hmmm...I think we might be slow learners. Or maybe, just maybe, the laparoscopic surgery for endo will make a difference?
As Will mentioned, we're both busy, but I'm insanely busy for the next 8 weeks or so with finishing my internship, defending my dissertation, and launching this grant project off of the ground (not sure if I mentioned this before, but I was awarded that grant I applied for a while back that will fund a two-year postdoctoral fellowship. I will be the principal investigator of a clinical research study implementing a novel treatment for trauma. The grant also includes a scholarship to get an M.S. from one of our local medical schools. The masters is a required part of the grant, or I would opt out. How many degrees do I need, after all?! It's getting embarrassing to even tell my family. They think I have an addiction to academics or something. Oh well. More on all this later.
For now, while Will is busy smelling the lilacs and remembering our baboon friends (ah, we're a complementary pair, aren't we?!), here is a short list of things I must do:
Must complete IVF cycle.
Must defend dissertation.
Must complete grant acceptance process for myself and team.
Must see patients.
Must bathe. At least occasionally.
Oh, and must not stress (snort!).
