Diet - One more week down and it went really well. I am rocking it and I hope it continues.

I also signed up for a Mind Body Class for eight weeks starting in April. Here's a short description "Develop new perspectives and qualities that will support you through your fertility challenge". I definitely can use some new perspectives and I like the idea that it will give me skills I can use even if my fertility challenge is that IVF didn't work either and I am still childless. That outcome would be more challenging than an IVF cycle I think.

Still on for IVF in May I am not going to call the clinic though until the beginning of my next cycle.

I spoke to someone about my infertility challenges, someone in the know and even though I know this is a true statement I was put off "Age is not on your side". Yes yes I know age is not on my side. Can we just stop talking about it. I can no more turn back time than I can bring someone back from the dead so telling me that age is not on my side is useless and just makes me feel bad that I was not able to have a child earlier in life. Don't tell me I should try IVF and then in the next instant act like if I don't do it tomorrow I better forget it. Gheesh...I mean it's May - I'm not talking about waiting until 2020.

I hate that time reminder, as if we don't already know the obvious. Sigh. May will be here before you know it, 2 or 3 ovulations to be exact!!! ;)

I agree with you about those reminders, do they really think that you can forget this fact. May is around the corner. I hope all of this gets you well prepared for the process. the class sounds great, let us know how it goes.
nice work on the diet :)

Yah, not helpful! And a whole lot of people are having babies between 40 and 45. Age isn't on their side either.

I hope the class is great!

I so dislike people who say things that are so obvious and think we don't realize that...oh come on, we are living it everyday. If he/she is saying age is against you at 40 years old, I can imagine what he/she would say to me turning 44 in May - probably, you don't stand a chance..UGH!

OH PULEEEZE! There's some totally useless advice if I ever heard any! I'm really happy the diet is going well and you're signing up for that class--it seems like pretty much anyone could profit from some new perspectives!

Thanks for the encouragement left on my blog today. I appreciate that so many wonderful ladies are thinking about me. I totally agree about well-wishers' advice being useless most of the time. Phsh...like we need reminding of all the things we have working agasinst us, right? May will be here before you know it! We'll blink twice and here it will be.
