  1. Good to hear from you, though sad to hear about your MIL condition. I think your approach for the IVF is a sound one -- get all the preliminary work done and then decide. Pushing it off one month is not a big deal if it comes to that. Hopefully you do not have to. Sending lots of good wishes to you and your family.

  2. I'm so sorry to hear your MIL is doing worse. You are doing the right thing -- the "wait and see" approach. I'm sure your husband appreciates it.

  3. I'm so sorry. This is heartbreaking. I hope your MIL is more comfortable today, and that Chop is able to be by her side soon.

    I think you're doing the right thing by stepping away and taking things one step at a time. It's easy to fixate on all of the things that can go wrong. I know I do.

    I'm glad you're considering putting off your IVF for now. Stress may not affect the outcome, but keeping things as easy as possible while you're injecting yourself full of hormones may help you keep your sanity, and maybe may make things easier on your relationship as well. As you said, there's no need to decide before CD1, and I know you'll make the decision that's right for you.

    I'll be keeping my fingers crossed for you, no matter when it happens.

  5. So sorry to hear about your MIL. I think you have a really great attitude about going into your IVF cycle. Being in a good place emotionally is so important.

    Wishing you and your family peace.

  6. I can't blame you for putting off your cycle for one more month. What's one more month if you get to spend part of it with your MIL, and at the very least there's one less stressor. I am keeping you in my prayers, I hope you find peace in how everything happens. Hugs.
