I have a headache. I've had it since yesterday. Not sure if it's the BCPs, or the stress from the whole applying for a job thing. I'm leaning more towards the job thing.
I worked on my resume all day yesterday. It shouldn't have taken that long, but it did. It's difficult to think that hard when you haven't used your brain like that in a while. It's probably a good thing, in case I forget totally how to use it. I managed to send my resume in to the recruiter last night.
I spent all day today working on a document with prescreen questions on it. Yeah, they won't even look at your resume until you have your prescreen questions answered. Only then will they look at your resume. Again, it shouldn't have taken such a long time to answer 15 questions. Questions like what is your long term career goals, why do you want to work for this company, tell me your experience working in....., etc. But it did. I wanted to make sure that I think carefully about the answers I put down. With it being a Word document, it's going to exist forever, and it may come back to bite me in the ass sometime in the future. But it's done. I just sent the final copy of my resume and the prescreen questions to the recruiter just now so she can submit it to the company tomorrow. I'm just relieved that it's done. Maybe the headache will go away now.
Last night, I tried to have the "What if this IVF doesn't work" discussion with Babe. I wanted him to start thinking about what our next steps would be. But it didn't go so well. He didn't want to talk about or think about it. His rationale is, he wants to go into this next IVF assuming it's going to work. He wants to go in feeling positive about it. If it doesn't work, then he can be disappointed. He doesn't want to approach it thinking it's not going to work, and being disappointed with the whole thing for the next couple of months even before the procedure.
I can understand how he feels. Actually I'm glad he feels that way, it totally makes sense. We could use all the positivity we can get!
Being me, of course I'm trying to lay out our plans for the next few months, especially with a potential job coming up for me. Also I wanted to start having the conversation about adoption, specifically embryo adoption. Not that we are making any decisions yet, of course, but I just wanted to put it out there. Maybe have him start thinking about it. But he's not ready to give up yet (Yay!).
One thing that still bothers Babe is the fact that the RE could not get to the eggs in my right ovary at the last retrieval. He wants to know why. I've explained it to him before, that because of where the right ovary was located, high and behind the uterus, the RE would have had to go through the uterus to retrieve the eggs, and they did not want to do that. That would disrupt the uterus and would impact embryo implantation. Babe is not satisfied with the answer. He thinks there should be a way to access the eggs. A laparoscopic surgery, maybe?
Does anyone know if there is another way to access eggs other then via the usual IVF procedure?
I'm going to have to call my RE and find out if there is a way that we can access the eggs in the right ovary during retrieval.
