Don't Worry, Be Happy

Have you ever had a day where one song seemed to be surrounding you, constantly?

Today at work, there was a toy lion sitting in the 'for sale' book box - when you pressed him, he sang and danced to the tune of 'Don't Worry, Be Happy'. Every time someone walked into the staffroom, they pressed his button and off he went. It became a running joke of the day and everyone commented on how fitting the song was; especially when you're a stressed out, underpaid teacher.

I left work early today to head to our fertility specialist for a follow up appointment, with that song lyric still floating around in my head. We went through our test results, and were asked for our decision: what did we want to do next? The verdict was pretty easy, and one that Jase and I had already agreed on.

We're going to be doing IVF!

When we'll start will all depend on when my next cycle begins (if I've had no O signs by next week, I'm to start taking progesterone again and induce a period) - but if all goes well, by mid March we should be starting our first cycle. It's weird, I've already got my script of birth control pills ready to use, come CD1. Really - birth control pills? After TTC for all this time? Strange. I'll be on those for a few weeks, then taking Synarel (a nasal spray in place of Lucrin injections - free vs $200, easy choice to make!), and then the injectibles. And, since it takes so long to get started the first time around, our random three-day trip to Thailand in April won't affect anything. (Oh, did I mention that we are going to Phuket?)

Next on the agenda is setting up a nurses appointment at the fertility clinic, where they'll go through the entire ordeal with us in greater detail with us and where we have to pay up-front for the first cycle. The payment part? Not so fun. But honestly, I just can't wait to get this party started.

So after our appointment, I had to go and have one quick follow-up blood test downstairs in the pathology lab. Care to take a guess what song was playing on the radio there? Yep. 'Don't Worry, Be Happy'. Spooky, eh? And I'm not even done yet. In the car on the way home? SERIOUSLY? Uh-huh.

I guess that's our motto for this next phase of our TTC journey. :)

One of those days

  • We've been in our new house for almost a month now, and it's still only half-done. The rain around here has been constant, we've got half a driveway done, a whole lot of mud puddles in the front and backyard, and a big old mess upstairs. I love it here, but I'm tired, oh-so-tired.
  • My class of Year 1/2 students got so big that the school reshuffled the classes, so we could have smaller class sizes. As such, I'm now a regular old Year 1 teacher - and loving it! Except that I'm tired, oh-so-tired.
  • I ovulated last month, for the first time in many, many moons. The two week wait is almost over, but I'm not holding out much hope. {You can read more here.} All I know is that this whole process is making me tired, oh-so-tired.
Sensing a pattern here?
