Egg Retrieval and Embryo Update

The retrieval happened on Tuesday!! There’s good news and bad news. Bad news: my RE didn’t do the retrieval, and now three days later, I’m still full of gas. I’m pretty sure it’s not OHSS since it’s my upper abdomen that’s bloated, and I just feel gassy.ER Embryo Continue reading


Microblog Mondays: IVF #2 End of Stims!


I had my trigger shot last night, and I’m needle free today after taking injections for three weeks!! The injections this time were a little more challenging. DH gave me a HUGE bruise a last week, and I gave myself a little one a couple of days ago. Continue reading

Needles and stuff

IVF UpdateSo it has begun. IVF round 2 is well underway. I started Lupron last Saturday, without any drama. I had DH do the shots for me for about a week since I just couldn’t stab myself with the tiny needle. But something came over me a few nights ago, and I said, screw it, I’m doing this myself. So here we are, about a week left of lupron, and I’m doing the shots myself! Woot! Continue reading

We’re back at it again!

It’s been about three months since I even logged on to WordPress, or my Twitter account. It is now November. I spent the last three months vacationing, and not thinking about treatment. I wasn’t on vacation for the full three months, even though that would’ve been nice. I’m heading off to Dallas and New Orleans today for a week, and I will be starting Lupron tomorrow. I’ve never traveled with syringes before. Please let me know if there’s anything I need to be aware of, especially about disposal!

Enough talk about the next cycle. I thought I’d use this post to share some pictures of what I’ve been up to. Over the last three months, I’ve traveled to Hong Kong, Osaka, Hawaii, and the Mediterranean!

I’m off to Dallas to watch my first ever Cowboys game at the AT&T Stadium! I’m sooo excited! We’re heading off to New Orleans on Tuesday. Let me know if there are any places I must visit in either of these places!

I’m back…kind of…

FET 2 UpdateIt’s been a while since I’ve logged into my account, or read your posts. I just haven’t been feeling up to it. But I thought I’d give an update on what’s going on. As you know from the last post, our first FET didn’t work. We transferred our second, and last embryo on Friday, July 3. Continue reading

I have a confession to make…

Results UpdateI have been posting a week after what’s actually been happening. I had my transfer on May 26, and beta on June 5th. I was trying to read into stupid things like a winery I discovered last year is out of the wine I wanted, so that must mean that I’m pregnant since I can’t drink. Or, Kim Kardashian is sharing her infertility struggle with the world, plus she’s pregnant now, so that MUST be a sign.  I’ve made it through my TWW without spotting like last time, so that must be a sign. My boobs still hurt, that must be a sign. Continue reading
