So disappointed!


Well I went to my Ob/gyn today to find out when I start my 1st IVF cycle and thought that I would be starting in 11 days, but they couldnt fit me in for the education appt with the nurse until 6th Feb so now I won't be starting until the end of feb. I just felt like crying right there in front of everyone but I didn't. I'm so disappointed. I wish everyone the best of luck.

Re: So disappointed!

I am so sorry> Isn't there any way you could call RE's office and try again to get in an education class? Sometimes you need to help them understand the urgency. They might not think it is a big deal but, to those of us going through it, these kind of delays can be very dissapointing. Try to stay positive and be assertive.

Re: So disappointed!

Thanks TNT I was considering calling them and asking if they could call me if they have any cancellations. I know I will feel better in a couple of days, I'm just being a big sook and wollowing in my own self pity. Its just that I have been doing the big count down for the last couple of months and now I have to wait another 7 weeks. I know Im being pathetic and there are much worse things out there, and I should appreciate that this kind of thing is available to me at all. I'll just have to give myself a swift kick in the butt.

Re: So disappointed!

Ooohhh Nnnooooo!!! I am so sorry to hear that you are going to be delayed 7 weeks!!! Dont these people know that it should be on our time?!?!??!?!?! I get so frusterated with Dr's offices because you dont get much choice on what your doing. I hate feeling out of control on something.

Sweetie...just to make you feel better, call them and tell them if they have any cancellation to call you right away!!!

Re: So disappointed!

Cashahn,

Arrgh!!! I am so sorry!!!! Seeing as these RE offices are dealing with such sensitive issues, you would really think that they would understand how frustrating it is to delay you. Of course you've been counting down. I am so sorry, and I am really hoping that they're able to get you back in earlier. Were you able to call them to let them know you'd like to be called if there are any cancellations?

I hope you are feeling a bit better.

Kelley

Re: So disappointed!

Oh Cashahn! I'm so sorry! You have every right to be upset about the delay!! We have all been waiting long enough, and it's just so upsetting to be told you have to wait longer than you expected. I really hope they will find a way to fit you in. Is it possible for them to do 2 education appts at once & give you instructions at the same time they are giving another patient instructions? My dr's office doesn't do that, but I have heard some do...Just a thought. Anyway sweetie, I really am sorry to hear about your delay. I hope things can get back on track, and if they don't, I hope the time will at least pass quickly so you can get started soon.

Re: So disappointed!

Oh nooooo!!! I'm so sorry, dearest!! What awful news!! You'd think that these offices would know just how sensitive these issues are, and to be postponed so long, how horrible! I hope so muchthat they will find a way to fit you in before then. I'm sending you warm hugs, dearest.

Re: So disappointed!

Oh Cashahn sweetie I am SO sorry. I know the agony and pain that comes along with a delay. I think that PrayingforUs has a good idea... your really should call them and tell them that you want to come in if there is a cancellation. I really think it makes a difference when they know that you are anxious to get started. You'd be surprised that maybe they will accomodate you. Big (((hugs))) and just keep reminding yourself that even if there is a little delay, there's a huge chance this IVF cycle will bring you a BFP!!!!

Re: So disappointed!

Hi Cashahn

I'm so sorry to read about your delay in getting started on your IVF journey, I can only imagine how disappointed you must be. I think you are very brave to display such a staunch attitude.

I hope that the next seven weeks fly by and that you will be getting started before you know it!

Re: So disappointed!

Thank you everyone for your support and kind words it means so much to me to have all you wonderful ladies who truely understand how I feel. I will definately take your advice and call them. They actually do group education appts and they only run on Wednesdays so I guess they fill up pretty quick.
On the bright side I am feeling better today, I went and played around with my friends horses today and she just bought a new one which she said I can ride and train for the show ring for her so that should keep me busy for the next 7 weeks and hopefully help time go a bit quicker (and maybe lose a bit of weight too). Thank you all again and I know we will all be celebrating our BFP before we know it.

Cashahn xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

Re: So disappointed!

Hi Cashahn,

I'm glad you're feeling a bit better today!!!! That sounds awesome - about the horse training!! I'm glad you'll be able to keep busy. Just keep that BFP that you're getting so much closer to in your mind. I'm sorry again that your class was postponed, but you are right, we're all going to be celebrating our BFPs together very soon!

Enjoy your weekend!

Love,
Kelley

Re: So disappointed!

Hey Cashahn, I'm so glad to hear you are feeling better now. Hanging out with the horses sounds like a great way to bring much needed smiles and laughter. I really feel bad that you and Bee's both had your schedules pushed back, but even though it takes a few days to find it there usually is some silver lining. I'm glad you are handling it so well. And your BFP in the end will definitely have been worth the wait! Enjoy your weekend!
