The "What If" Appointment

One week since I had the IUI, and I am not expecting any firm results until next week.

I did, however, meet today with my doctor at Hadassah, to set up an IVF file, just in case this round did not work. I chose to see this visit today as an hour of both our time, hopefully wasted; I would rather throw away a few pages in a pink file, and know that I have a baby growing inside me. (IVF's motto: "Why settle with one injection per night, when you can get three?!")

While at Mount Scopus, I met up with my friend Michal, who thank G-d saw a heart beat this morning - "the size of a sesame seed, but a moving sesame seed" - and can now be transferred to her regular OB/GYN. It is a pleasure to see her so happy.
