home safe

I am home safe and sound as of this evening, just as darkness fell.
My lip is healing and my finger is totally back to normal.
In spite of the hazards large and small (small and furry), we had a good time even though we froze. So good to get away from work, away from house upkeep and panic, from the daily dailyness of the fertility shite.

But, now that I'm back, it all comes back in a rush. I am trying to remember to breathe. Tomorrow afternoon I have the sonohystogram down at Boston- so that is something to look forward to having be over... I did not like my last one one bit, pretty much hate having anything threaded up my cervix, and this time? Since they've not done this with me before, they do not know the territory and have no notes to help them and I am just simply hoping that it will be ok.

I have so much to write about but find words are slow in coming tonight- I can say this: it is good to be home, favorite mug filled with hot water, cat on shins, in my own crazy orange room with white christmas lights sparkling and a very clear sky filled with stars just out side.
New snow and stillness. I really am happy to be here.

Looking forward to catching up with all of you.

Welcome home our lovely Kate. Good to have you back all warm and safe and sound. Good luck on the SGH. I know it sucks, but I also know that you're strong and you'll get through it, even though by the end you want to punch the doctor in the face because OUCH! That shit can hurt.

My name is Elisabeth, and I am an infertility / repeated pregnancy loss "veteran". You can read a little bit about me and my experiences in my blog: drhousewife.blogspot.com . I am completing a PhD in Counseling Psychology, and my dissertation is focused upon the impact of infertility on marriage. I believe strongly that there is a need for better support services for men and women who are undergoing IF diagnosis and treatment, and my hope is that this study will aid in the development of such services.

I am contacting you after stumbling across your blog. I am recruiting participants for my study, and wanted to invite you and your husband to take part. All that would be involved would be the completion of an online survey, that would take approximately 20 minutes. All couples who complete the surveys will receive a voucher good for a pair of free movie tickets at a Regal Cinemas.

Please let me know if you are interested by emailing me at UTInfertilityResearch@gmail.com .
