  1. Glad you are back! :-)

    I agree, those police checks are ridiculous. I always marvel at the random idiots who have a baby by accident or otherwise no issues when the blogs I read have some awesome couples. :(

  2. I am still shaking my heads when I read that you have to go through a background check before ivf? IS there a specific reason they give you for this? Excuse my language but that is pure bullshit. I am glad you MIL is in good spirits as of today. I cant imagine how hard treatment will be on her, but I am so glad she has a loving family to support her throughout this process.

  3. That background check is stupid and wrong! I say, take the money from your FIL and just pay him back later so you can start sooner! p.s. I just got ANOTHER bill from my IVF cycle in February -- anesthesia costs almost $1,000 USD before insurance. Keep that in mind!

  4. Hmmmm. Your temperatures really are wacky, aren't they? Stupid question, but are you able to take them at the same time every day? Are you a mouth breather? (I would guess that you were during your cold, so that could definitely impact your temps.) You could always try taking your temp vaginally and see if you get a more consistent pattern with that, but I realize it's not for everyone! (I'm just not that brave.)

    I can't believe they make you go through a criminal record check for IVF. That's insane. Stupid government. >:(

  5. You have so many things to juggle right now! I hope things start calming down soon, and in the meantime don't forget to take some time for yourself. It's really hard when life throws a lot of things our way that we can't control. **Thinking of you**

  6. I'm sorry that's there's so much crap going on. When it comes to the money, do what's right for you! I'm keeping my fingers crossed that it will work on the duration try, whenever that is! And I still can't believe the stupid police check. Stupid.

  7. I feel the same way about background checks here in order to adopt, though I understand why they are necessary. Background checks for IVF though? is crazy!
    You probably know this if you've been charting awhile but your last cycle was likely annovulatory.
    Why can't our bodies just cooperate? :)
