ICLW greetings from Italy!

This is my first month on ICLW and I'm really enjoying it! So yesterday I didn't have much time to post as we were travelling to my beautiful home-Country and I'm catching up today.
Quite a bit about me and Mike is written in the "about me" window on the sidebar.
At the moment we are dealing with my next freh ICSI cycle (i've done only one fresh last august plus two FET) and adoption. Well...really there's not much we can do about adoption but wait. We are at the stage where we sent in our doucments so they are in the process of evaluating our health, wealth and criminal records!
So mostly we are focusing on the next ICSI cycle which is going to be a short protocol with antagonists and EC scheduled for the 22-23 of July (only a month from now!!).

I am also suffering at the moment from one of my hypocondriac attack...please don't laugh i know it's silly! It started two days ago I think. It was a long time it didn't happen and as usual when I have something important to start (ICSI this time) this horrible feeling of being seriously ill descend upon me (my head of course). I start being really aware of any small signal given by my body, a headache, pins and needles...you name it. Now I think I can't see properly from my left eye! the only thing that will make me feel better is a full check up. Which I dread of course as a potential confirmation of something serious. I actually realise this is the first time I'm putting this in writing and I can see how stupid it sounds...hopefully it'll go away soon and I'll get back to my usual self!

  1. I don't think that's silly at all. In fact I think it's normal you're having these thoughts with everything you have going on right now. If it's a feeling that's consuming you, then I agree it might not be ideal, but it sounds like you know very well that going to the doctor for a check-up will really help put your mind at ease. I think it's smart of you to be proactive like that. I'll be thinking and praying for peace for you - mind, body and soul! Hugs and enjoy your travels!

  2. That doesn't sound stupid to me. Obviously it's stress related. I used to have panic attacks after our first year of infertility. My acupuncturist has helped a lot with that.

    Enjoy your visit home!!!!

  3. Thank you for commenting over on my blog. I am sorry that we do share something in common that sucks as bad as an ectopic.

    I wish you all the best of luck in your upcoming ICSI.

  7. Good luck on your upcoming cycle! And I think going thru invasive procedures and taking all those hormones forces you to notice all the reactions of your body. So its not hypochondriasis, its being attuned to your body!!

    Take care!!

  8. Hi Fran!

    Thanks for visiting my bloghouse for ICLW earlier this week!

    My sister lived in Italy (Geata) for 4 years. I regret more than I can say about not visiting her during that time.

    GL with your ICSI cycle! I'm doing my first IVF with ICSI in Aug...makes me nervous!
