gotta live my life like I aint got nothin’ but this roll of the dice

July 3, 2007

I know that I haven’t posted about baby stuff in forever – but there’s good reason for that. Things have not been…stable in baby making land for the past week or so.  Without going into full details, basically, something we wanted very much was no longer available to us causing turmoil and tears and pretty emotional breakdowns.

When the dust settled and things calmed down a bit, S and I did some serious heart to heart talking and we have decided (once again) that it’s only money, and the outcome far outweighs the risk…so we’re going for it. One IVF cycle at a time.

We’re starting this cycle.

Which began Saturday.

I took my first birth control pill last night.

I’m a dyke on birth control.  HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA. I find this to be hysterically funny.

I should once again mention that I think that I have the best wife in the entire world. For true.


  1. I always wondered if my Infertile Club card would get revoked when I was on birth control so I can only laugh along with you on this one.

    Best of luck to you on this; I am very hopeful for you both. New life is so special, and I think you are right to roll the dice.

  2. Wow! Good luck! Break an ovary! And in the TMI camp, you and I are in sync. I hope that’s a good sign!

  3. We’re doing it one cycle at a time, too– starting Lupron tomorrow. I have my fingers crossed for you two.

  4. Boo hiss to the sucky upsetting stuff, but YEAY! to the new cycle and hee to the BCP! Good luck!

  5. Sooooooooo glad you guys are on the ‘coaster. Shitty stuff sucks and I hope it is a speck in the rearview soon.
    so much love to you & S.

  6. Good luck!

  7. Best of luck of course! I want to be an Auntie!

  8. I’m glad things are moving forward, despite the obstacles and angst. Fingers way crossed for you.

    And having a wonderful wife is golden. 🙂 I’m so glad you found S. and that she found you.

  9. you know i’m sending you every fertility vibe known to woman… and if anyone’s got fertility on their side, it’s my family. 90% of us were mistakes. 😛
    seriously though, M and i are both wishing you the best of babymaking luck ever.

  10. Yeah, the birth control cracked me up when C. was on it. But…the cycle after the birth control was it for us. I wish you similar circumstances!!!! And you gotta love the IVF statistics.

  11. Sorry you had to go through this emotional stuff. We are wishing you oodles and oodles of luck with IVF.

  12. You do. Seriously consider buying her those red heels now. I just posted and thanks for asking about me! YOUUUUUU LIIIIIIIIKE MEEEEEEEE

  13. I am happy for you guys that there is forward movement. Wishing you tons of luck!!

  14. Thank fucking g-d. Seriously. I can’t wait to hear all about this process, and i hope you blog about the details. YOu are both so brave to jump in like this…I know the money issue is not an easy one for you. Holy leap of faith.
