I have recently just started the first IVF Cycle and am now up to the 2 wk wait to see if I am pregnant. I found the whole experience very daunting and upsetting. I felt that at the IVF Clinic I go to, very few of the staff were the kind of really nicey nice type of people that I was expecting to deal with (as they are working in a baby clinic). I also found that we weren't informed of how the process went. It seemed that we should just know. For eg. When i turned up for the first procedure, I expected the Specialist to be doing, but another Dr. was there and when I asked if my Dr. had an emergency and couldn't make it, new Dr. said, no you get whoever is on the roster. I asked if I could then have a female Dr., as i am not comfortable with a male Dr. due to past abuse when a child, and was told I would have to have whoever was scheduled on and that's how it works. When I was upset (prob. due to hormones) and sat in the waiting room in tears for nothing another day, the IVF nurse was abrupt and cold when dealing with me. I said sorry I am not normally a cry baby, but I can't seem to stop. She said, and I quote, "Other people keep it inside." Anyway, I am not sure if it is just me, or if other people have had unpleasant experiences with the IVF Process. I feel as I am a robot in a no.s system, and when the IVF Nurse/councellor tells me everyone else keeps in inside, I can't have a female Dr. and then when they did the implant, did it without any cover on top of me at all, with 5 seemingly bored staff in the room, I have to question their motives as to why they are even doing this type of work. I would like to know if anyone has experienced coldness from the IVF process, as after the treatment yesterday, I was so upset, I would say there is no way this will work. I will not be going back to that clinic ever again and i fully intend to post the staff I have dealt with a copy each of the movie "WIT".

I'm trying to exercise daily. I was doing fairly well until I sprained my ankle 2 weeks ago but now I'm getting back on the horse. Today I walked over a mile with my arm weights that are about 22lbs total. I was out of shape and it was hard on my arms. I also did my 30 situps. I'm also going to drink a lot of water and try to eat healthy. I do tend to have a sweet tooth but I'm cutting...
