I am Stronger than I Thought

May 20, 2010

After all that I have been through, I am stronger than I thought.

I strongly believe that I will get pregnant eventually and very soon. I am healthy and strong. I am doing the right thing at the right time. I am making the right decision to have a baby at this stage of my life.

In the meantime, I also know that it will be OK to have a life without a kid. But I will do my best to try it first. I don’t want to make myself and my hubby too stressful during the process of getting pregnant. It is not the end of the world.

Happy Mother’s Day!

May 9, 2010

Happy Mother’s Day to moms and mom-to-be in the world.

I called my mom Friday night. She asked me if I am pregant or not. I said ” Not yet. Still trying”. One day I will be a mom. I am just waiting for the right time. Maybe next year I will be a proud mom. 🙂

Consultation with Psychologist

May 6, 2010

Today I had a one-hour consultation with a psychologist regarding my anxiety and stress due to IVF.

We have never talked about our IVF journey with anyone else, including our parents and siblings. We don’t think they can provide any help. Instead, it might bother them and we might also feel extra stress from telling them.

Although I try to release stress myself, from time to time I felt I was stressful and anxious. I have been thinking to talk to a professional for a longing time eventually I did it today.

It was helpful to talk to her. I felt a little bit relaxed after the consultation. I think I have a better understanding of my situation, which will help me handle the stress in a better way.

3D Ultrasound for Uterus

May 1, 2010

We had an appointment with RE 2 weeks ago and he suggested me do a 3D ultrasound for my uterus. He say my uterus has a irregular shape. He wants to do a 3D ultrasound or MRI to find out the shape of my uterus. My RE suspect that I might have bicornate uterus or Septate uterus.

We booked an appointment for 3D ultrasound on May 17, 2010. We will also have a meeting with RE on May 20 to discuss the next step based on the result.

Has anyone done 3D ultrasound for your uterus?
