Three Bags Full

The unravelings of the mind of a G*R*I*T*S (Girl Raised In The South) who knits.

I have been so slack. I've been a slack knitter, a slack blogger, a slack teacher, and a slack wife. I never finished Lady Eleanor. I have 2 skeins of yarn left to knit, and I haven't touched it. I started some socks for St. Patrick's Day, but they won't be finished. I haven't posted in almost a month. I've been a horrible mean teacher, and I pick up take out every night.

Why? Depression. The transfer didn't work. I had been off of my Lexapro for about a month. I was low. After I found out that the transfer didn't work, I called in to my Doctor and got my meds again. I am much better.

The transfer---the cycle---what happened? The eggs didn't fertilize. They tried rescue icsi. It was successful in initial fertilization, but the embies didn't continue to divide in the lab, so the transferred embies probably didn't grow inside of me. We will try again. I've been offered a scholarship cycle where the costs are a little lower. I told the donor egg coordinator to go ahead and start looking!
