Peace.

We had a great meeting with our RE today. Sum and substance: notwithstanding our lack o' a baby, we are still optimal candidates for IVF success. So, we'll be taking a break for a month or so, and coming back for round #3 in June.

I'm going to take a break from the blog, as well. Of course, I'll still be checking in on you all, but don't expect frequent posts from our part of the world until we're back in the "active" stage of the IF journey. The goal is for a break from the stress of IF treatment -- body, mind and soul. Breaks are healthy, and we intend to enjoy ours.

In the meantime, peace to you. Be well, and be good to each other.

I hope you enjoy your break... we just took a mental health weekend for ourselves and it's amazing what's it done for just 2 days. Best of luck for cycle #3- can't wait to read the progress. *hug*

Faith, enjoy your break! and more importantly, so glad you have PEACE! That's been the biggest thing for me with even making the leap to IVF, is having that peace that I felt God was with me and the timing was finally right for us!

Hi Faith - looks like we'll be cycling together. I've got #3 on deck for June as well.

Definitely enjoy your break. We've been taking an IF-vacation since our last failed cycle in February, and it's been really rejuvenating. Can't wait to hear your updates upon your return.
