Just saw some interesting articles online and wanted to share ’em…

Holy crap! There is a new DNA test can screen embryos for abnormal chromosome numbers before transfer?


Popular Science has an interesting article about how a woman in NY set a record by giving birth to a baby born from a 20 year old embryo.


Connie Shapiro over at Psychology Today delves into how to handle the emotional roller coaster when a friend becomes pregnant.




Oh, also got the visit from Auntie Flo today.  Bitch didn’t even give me a courtesy call.  *sigh…


Coupla questions:

1. How long would you stay in a brain numbing dead end job in a crap area that pays dirt, with people you mostly tolerate,  and offers no advancement whatsoever but provides health insurance?

2. Has anyone ever dealt with being between jobs without insurance or paid for theirs out of pocket during fertility treatments?

3. Any advice for coping with #1 after 3 years?

I have been so distracted and busy lately.

Between work, school and training I barely have the ability to cook and sleep properly. Thus, the bloggie, and my IF world attentions has suffered. But, seriously…who is dying to read about my laparotomy drama. Honestly.

Regardless and for the record, it’s been pushed off until November due to the fact that this three-hour, tandem surgery requires two specialists who’s dance cards are apparently almost full. But, it’s now finalized at last. So, I get to watch my poor husband fumble with our Thanksgiving turkey as I sit by and watch helplessly in the name of recovery.

All I know is, I got a “Go.Lytely” scrip hanging on my cork board laughing at me as the day before surgery grows near.


In my best Aunt Linda voice:  “This get’s one ‘Oh, brother’ and three ‘Criiiiippes’!”
