Support needed

Ladies,

Please stop by V’s blog (All about V) to show her your support. She just found out that her baby’s heartbeat was lower than normal at her 7 wk u/s. She can really use your kind words of support to get her through these troubling times. And please keep her and her baby in your thoughts and prayers.

Thank you very much. I know I can count on you gals.

Thank you… from unknown territory

Thank you for all your kind words and well wishes! We are extremely happy to have so much support!

I am feeling much better today. Still not celebrating yet. I still can’t get myself to say “I am P…”. It just feels soo odd. It just hasn’t sinked in yet. I guess I am not going to believe this until I see the sac and hear the heartbeat! I need that visual acknowledgment. I mean, my mind knows that we got a good first beta, saw two lines on a stick… but my heart still isn’t convinced. Apologize for the flowery words… but thats exactly how I feel. Oh yeah… and to top that off, no PG symptoms whatsoever… not even sore boobs for heaven’s sake! Nothing!

I have researched odds and ends about conquering IF. About what to do during which part of your cycle. About what to eat that might help. About what meds help with what. About IUIs, IVFs, FETs and their sucky success rates. About eggs and sperms. About embies and what can help with implantation. About negative cycles and how to cope with them. But God.. oh God… never did I once read about what happens after that positive result! It seems like I am back to square one. I am soo lost! I am now officially in unknown territory.

Thanks for your support

First of all… THANKS a lot for your support guys! Its sooo comforting to know that I am not the only infertile out there who feels good around kids. :) Wow… this is first time I got some IF-related support from someone other than my hubs and my BFF. And… it… it feels good. I am so glad I started blogging. Thanks again guys!

Before I started blogging, my distractions were (a) reading other blogs and googling (well… thats technically not a distraction from IF… but lets not go there) and (b) reading books

Books kept me company. It helped me zone out for a while, helped me forget abt the reality and I blissfully slipped into the characters world. I didn’t used to read a lot of non-fiction. I used to be a big romance-thriller-novel fan (the likes of nora roberts). That was about 4 yrs ago. Lately, I have come to appreciate non-fiction and I actually prefer them. I guess you can say that I have matured (read as getting too old for the flowery romance novels) :)

A couple of books that I have enjoyed recently are Better by Atul Gawande and My Stroke of Insight by Jill Bolte Taylor.

Better is a bunch of short stories that the author experiences/has heard during his career as a surgeon. The stories all have a common thread that talks about performance and how it has shaped the medical field. It is a very interesting read.

My Stroke of Insight is also authored by a doc. She is a neuro-surgeon who has a stroke that paralyzes her. The book is about her experiences and recovery from it. I loved it. It was a very easy read. I would highly recommend this to anyone who enjoys reading abt medical miracles.

My next book in line is an IF-related book. (I know… surprise right!!) Its called Waiting for Daisy by Peggy Orenstein. The tag line is something like this… “A tale of two continents, 3 religions, 5 IF Docs, an Oscar, an atomic bomb, a romantic night, and one woman’s quest to become a mother.” Sounds interesting right?! I start on it tonight. I promise to give you a book review once I am done with it.

Any other recommendations on good IF-related books?
