Seemed like it was time for an update! Ok so I am STILL SICK. But getting better now. Had to go back and get a 2nd course of antibiotics! Crazy.. Finally on the mend after 12 days of this yuck-fest! I have also been rethinking our decision to go with our old clinic. I have been researching other places and then talked with hubby. We have now decided to go with a different clinic in TEXAS!! Yep you read that right, TEXAS! I am excited. I had a long talk with a nurse there and I LOVE THEM! I had actually had a consult with them many years back when I lived in TX still, but we never moved forward then because our surrogate fell through. So we are definitely going with them this time. I have to send my medical
novel records to them for the RE to review and then have my consult. Should be starting BCP in December! The added bonus is there are some friends I want to see that live in TX near where I am going so it should be an awesome trip! Oh and THE BEST PART? Its kinda $5,000 CHEAPER overall to go there! Can you say HELL YESSSS!

Contrary to what I thought I DO NOT have Strep Throat! I do however have infections in BOTH ears, my throat, my sinuses AND my chest (LUNGS!).. Four prescriptions later I left the Dr.'s office. Hopefully this passes quickly.. On a side note: I told dh I should not sleep in the same room with him since a fever means CONTAGIOUS.. He said "no babe, you will sleep better in our room" Yeah, I will but you will be at risk.. So, I asked the Dr. why my throat was hurting so badly, she said "Oh you definitely have infections!" I said am I contagious? Her answer? "FOR SURE!" As she was backing away slowly covering her face.. Yeah good times.. So I will not be sleeping in my room until I am fever free.. I LOVE being right..

I started following a blog a while back called Team Pancakes and thru her I have met another girl about to embark on IVF. She pointed out in one of her blog posts that a lot of African American women don't talk about their infertility, like it's a shameful thing.. I agree with her.. I know VERY FEW African American women that have issues (to my knowledge because it's not talked about publicly by "us") and I also know few Hispanic women that talk about it as well.. I know of a girl that recently had twins but when I was told about it, the info was only shared with me because the girl "outting" her knew I was doing IVF too (as y'all can see I have no problem telling all my bidness!LOL) so to have Nini reach out to me from "Team Pancakes" blog was so refreshing! I hope we can be a great source of support for each other as well as a great resource for information, y'all know I love to share! I hope her journey is much shorter than mine and that she has much success. I love how the interweb is bringing so many women together to share their stories and support one another! No matter our color we are all fighting the same fight and it's A LOT easier when you have numbers on your side!
