For my next trick...

Okay, at this point all we're waiting for is the resumption of my normal cycle so that we can subvert it entirely. Once my period begins, I'll go on birth control pills to regulate my cycle — trust me, the irony of this is lost on no one who's been through infertility treatment, so don't even bother mentioning it. After a few weeks of pills, we're off to the races, beating my system into submission with Lupron, then whipping it into a frenzy with Repronex and Follistim shortly thereafter.

This is the first time in my life I've eagerly awaited the arrival of my period. The true indication of how much I want a child is the fact that I'm willing to endure several periods without ibuprofen.
