The Little Couple

Has anyone seen TLC's "The Little Couple"? Well I was watching the other night and they are going through IVF. So it was pretty interesting to watch. She is bad-ass. Did the egg retrieval wide awake! Ummm, no thank you. I guess because of her small size her airways get constricted if she uses sedation stuff. Something like that. I have learned so much about IVF and the process just from reading all of your blogs and watching TV! Unfortunately, I don't know if IVF is in our near future. There may be a delay, because of med costs. So I don't know what is going to happen. Thank you to all of you who responded to my beggin for bravelle post. I'm considering ordering from Canada too, but Im not sure how all that works. My next cycle should start around July 16th or so. So I have another week to try and get my med situation...situated...

If IVF doesnt work out for this next cycle. We might try a non-medicated cycle with monitoring, trigger and IUI. Has anyone ever done one of these?

As for the possible adoption, I'm sad to say that I am giving up on it. I got so invested in these baby girls and the thought that it might actually work. It's not looking very promising, so I am going to try my best to just let go of it. (Despite the freak-ish amount of signs I keep getting to NOT give up on it) But I just know what's meant to be will be. It's completely out of our control....

Dan and I LOVE the Little Couple. I don't have cable anymore so I haven't seen it in a while - but I got Dan addicted through season 1 on netflix. I didn't know they were going through IVF. That's so cool!

I'm sorry it doesn't look like the adoption is going to work out. Please don't give up hope hun. I don't know when and i don't know how but I am confident you are going to be blessed with a baby. Now that you've had the surgery I hope that things will happen really fast for you! You're going to be such a great Mom! And I know your little one is gonna be such a cutie pie. I'll want to drive to NY and hug on it.

Please don't give up dear. I know God will guide you to the right decision. You WILL have a baby. I'm thinking of you.

I have seen the Little Couple - well, pieces of it and I did see they were going through IVF. Amazing!

Hang in there, girl - the right path will unfold in front of you. It's just hard to wait.

As for ordering meds from Canada, I was scared of the new process, too, but I get my medication for my breastmilk from an online Canadian pharmacy. It's REALLY easy. Your doc just faxes them the prescription order and you're done! And I pay less than half what I'd pay at a pharmacy here! Go for it!

Good luck, hun!

Now you made me want to watch it again! I used to watch it lots last year but haven't been this year! I want to watch them go through IVF and see what will happen......! Can you watch it online?

I know it is hard, but don't give up hope. I've felt hopeless so many times before but there always seems to be a tiny glimmer that shines through. xo

I have ordered prescriptions online from Canada. I used Jan Pharmacy. You send them your prescription or have your doctor do it. They were always super professional and a life saver when I didn't have insurance.
