To My Dear IVF Nurses,
You ladies have been so wonderful. The best I've seen in New York. When I first came to your office, I saw one of you give a hug to a another patient and I thought I had died and gone to heaven.
You know by now that I just cancelled my IVF...at the last possible second before buying $5,000 of non-refundable drugs and infusions, no less.
My gut just said to not do it yet. So I actually feel relieved, even though I was really liking the possibility of being pregnant at Christmas time.
You see, I've been doing all kinds of kooky things that you may not approve of. I've been eating gluten free, dairy free, & soy free (very tricky, let me tell you). And I've been trying my darnest to avoid sugar & high glycemic fruits. I am also taking so many vitamins and supplements that it feels like I have a small meal in my stomach when I'm done. I've been exercising, which has been fantastic. And I eat kale for breakfast and salmon for dinner & drink green smoothies. I just feel so healthy and good. So I just got cold feet about putting all those drugs in there.
But MOSTLY, I have one more really, really kooky thing I am going to try. Haha. I found out about it the day before I had to pay for the drugs. It will actually happen this Saturday in Chelsea. And it might help me to get pregnant. WE WILL SEE. It's one thing I have not tried (which is impressive, considering I have tried a lot.) I promise that if it works, you'll be the first to hear all about it (as will my lovely blog readers). :)
And if it doesn't work, that will be ok, too. Cause I'll be even healthier if I return to your care. And I'll be happy that you will get to be my IVF nurses, since you're the best ones I've ever met.
