"Here I go again"

Do you remember that 80's Whitesnake song? For those of you who don't know me well, I'm a huge music fan. So as I get ready to gear up for another round of IVF, this song has been in my mind all day. I realize most of my nest/MSN buddies are younger than me, but this was a very popular song circa 1987. It was a great video with actress Tawny Kitaen dancing on the hood of a car in a white dress--ha!

Some of you have asked why I'm staying with my current RE for another IVF cycle. I'll address that here so I don't have to keep repeating myself. My b/w checked out okay, so I was given the green light by my RE to try again beginning with Lupron on this current cycle. I could've waited another cycle, however, I have work meetings and vacations in May, vacations in June and maybe July. That means I can't do another round of IVF until end of July or August at the earliest. We didn't want to wait. IVF sucks. You can't travel anywhere as you have to be close by RE's office for frequent b/w and u/s. I will move on to another RE if we fail IVF#2.

"Here I Go Again"
I don't know where I'm going
But, I sure know where I've been
Hanging on the promises in songs of yesterday
And I've made up my mind
I ain't wasting no more time

But, here I go again
Here I go again

Though I keep searching for an answer
I never seem to find what I'm looking for
Oh Lord, I pray you give me strength to carry on
'Cause I know what it means
To walk along the lonely street of dreams

And here I go again on my own
Going down the only road I've ever known
Like a drifter I was born to walk alone
And I've made up my mind
I ain't wasting no more time

I'm just another heart in need of rescue
Waiting on love's sweet charity
And I'm gonna hold on for the rest of my days
'Cause I know what it means
To walk along the lonely street of dreams

And here I go again on my own
Going down the only road I've ever known
Like a drifter I was born to walk alone
And I've made up my mind
I ain't wasting no more time

But here I go again
Here I go again
Here I go again
Here I go again
'Cause I know what it means
To walk along the lonely street of dreams

And here I go again on my own
Going down the only road I've ever known
Like a drifter I was born to walk alone
And I've made up my mind
I ain't wasting no more time

And here I go again on my own
Going down the only road I've ever known
Like a drifter I was born to walk alone
'Cause I know what it means
To walk along the lonely street of dreams

I know the song! Great video btw!

I understand staying with the clinic. I hope this cycle turns out better and with a BFP and some snow babies for a sibling.

I love that song, I remember it, I'm right up there with you in age....

I don't blame you for staying. Sometimes, it doesn't happen on the first fresh. They need to work out the details based on what they learned from the first cycle.


GL!!

Baaahh!! This was my favorite song forever when I was little because my 2nd grade boyfriend sang it to me on the bus. True story.

On a side note, how great that you have a thousand vacations coming up?!
