My first visit with FS will be this Saturday at 7am, less than eight hours after I hit home turf. I realise I could have cut it more finely, but what can I say? There was no red-eye available when I booked.

I'm feeling good about this cycle. Yes, that's right - I'm feeling good about a cycle brought to us by the same batch of embryos who gave us "Die-Easy", "Die-Easy II - Die Easier", "Failure to Thaw"*, and who could forget, "Three Chemical Pregnancies and a BFN"? Ah yes, good times, good times. Top entertainment.

But you see, I'm in the happy position of having diminished hopes. I remember Februaries gone by when my wish was to have a baby, or at least become successfully pregnant, by the end of the year. Now I'm just aiming to tick four to six transfers off, because that's four to six less transfers we'll have left to do, right? I'm also hoping to cultivate a black sense of humour about the subject, so I can be one of those people who makes the types of jokes everyone is too uncomfortable to laugh at. Lofty ambitions.

It's good to have the show on the road.

*We actually have eight embryos left, so it's pretty likely we'll have something to transfer**.

**I wanted to leave it at that but I've been growing increasingly uncomfortable since typing it, like it constitutes some sort of jinx. So let me be clear - I am merely stating probabilities. I assume nothing. Hear that, universe?

Also, if you've been wondering why nothing's been posted over at Project Genesis lately, there's been a problem with her feed. More information on how to fix the problem on her blog.

Oh Bea, I am laughing at the "Failure to Thaw" graphic!

Personally, I like black humour, but then some people do consider me to be slightly sick and twisted.

I do not think stating 8 embies resulting in something to transfer is a jinx at all. Statistically speaking, you should have embryos to transfer, that is exactly what you meant, right?

Wishing you lots of luck!

Hi Bea, I also love black humour, you did have me laughing at all the little names you've given your embies! We gotta laugh or we'll cry right! 8 embies is great, I hope one (or two) of those is "the ticket".

About your question... what do you mean by "Feed"? I'm as thick as dog sh1t when it comes to computers, I'm lucky to have gotten this far! I'll go investigate on my settings and see what I can find...

The Failure to Thaw is HILARIOUS!!!! Thanks for a great laugh. If we can't laugh at IF, then what's the point? I'm wishing for the best for you gal and will keep following.

Kris said...

I'll be laughing at your black humor, too, so those people can look at me uncomfortably as well.

Good luck this cycle.

The Town Criers said...

While not the easiest turn around period for an appointment, at least you hit the ground running. I'm sending out a lot of hope for this cycle.

Baby Blues said...

You made me laugh out loud Bea. Thanks.
Laughing is good! Check out the Clown Study Nearlydawn mentioned. If that's the case, FUNNY THOUGHTS to all!

Mands said...

I love an intelligent read, and black humour requires sharp wit and intelligence.
And if only all embryo's looked like Matthew McConaughey! :-)
Okay that is a little wierd...

Beagle said...

Sometimes dark humor is the only sort we've got left!

Good Luck with this upcoming trip, thaws and all!

Thalia said...

I've gone straight from the airport to the clinic before now, so hear you on cutting it close.

Hoping for no drop outs from your eight.

About the only thing we have sometimes is humor. Helps us stay on this path.

Love the image!

Statistics, yes. I also have hope that one of those transfers are going to work. Because statistically speaking, out of 4 to 6 transfers, you should get pregnant at least once.

Wishing you the very best for this cycle

Well, I had lousy embryos and had to finish off the frosties to get to the next cycle. I didn't bother resting or taking it easy because I knew it was pointless... Fortunately, I was wrong :-) Thanks for your comments on my blog!

Hopeful Mother said...

I love your embryo movie titles. Great graphic too! You definitely have a knack for this film-industry thing!

I don't think it's unreasonable to assume that you'll get something to transfer out of your 8 frozen embryos...

Excited that you are back "in the FET game"... safe travels!

Watson said...

OMG, I love your black humor!

That graphic was hilarious, and I'm so glad you can hanng on to your funny bone in times like these

Thanks for the laugh!

:-)
