Happy Birthday to Me!

Today is my birthday. Lucky 38. I didn't want to celebrate this one at all; you know what they say about a woman's fertility after the age of 38 right? Yeah. Well, I dreaded this day. I still don't want it to be today, you know? I wish I could make yesterday an indefinite duration and just stay at 37. Never hitting that magical number that supposedly determines when a woman's fertility decreases. Wouldn't THAT be nice. Oh well. C'est la vie. Welcome to 38 Gil. *tries it on for size*

Meh. It ain't so bad... cause yesterday I got word about my TSH.

TSH = 2.0


I could have kissed the RE right then and there when I saw those results yesterday afternoon. In his opinion, we are good to go. So today I called Montréal and booked two appointments: one for our follow up with the RE there and to sign the necessary consent forms, and give payments, and the second appointment to attend an information session (mandatory... though I think I could GIVE the darn thing at this point) and then to establish our IVF calendar. The only issue with that is that given that we can't start right away (I could have theoretically taken BCP for my next cycle for suppression), we will be delayed further because I will be away in August so we need to work around those dates. We'll figure it out.

Still. All in all, it's a decent birthday gift. I'll take it.

Sounds like that news was the best way to start a birthday (or end it for that matter).

Hope you have a fabulous day!

Hey! Getting a TSH of 2 on you 38th B-day can't be ALL bad? Can it? :) Maybe the Fates are telling you that 38 isn't really, really so bad. :) Hopefully you'll be rockin' and rollin' on your next try soon!
