I’m sorry that I’ve completely disappeared since my last TWW update. But don’t worry, nothing bad has happened. I am still pregnant! It’s been almost a month since my last update, as of today, I am 7 weeks, 6 days. Continue reading
Tonight will be day 6 of stims. I’m halfway through!! While I feel fine, this happened a couple nights ago. Continue reading
So 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
I’ve been on Estrace 3 times a day for about 2 weeks now. I never had hormonal mood swings when I took birth control, so this whole emotional thing is all new to me. This might be a rant post, so I apologize if I come across whiny. Continue reading
I just got back from what I think is my last monitoring appointment. Everything looks good! I think I have 15 follicles that are bigger than 12mm. I ended up being an hour late for work because I had to wait for the trigger shot instructions! Maybe the purpose of IVF is to make us more patient for when we become mothers. HAHA Continue reading
It’s been a rough week! I’ve never had side effects from drugs before, so I wasn’t expecting side effects with stims, but boy, was I wrong! Continue reading
Today is day 5 of our first IVF cycle! I’ve been on 125iu of Puregon, and 75iu of Menopur. I’ll save my symptoms and feelings for a longer full week update.
I had my first blood test yesterday. I thought I would get a U/S too, but I didn’t. When the nurse called with instructions, I was told to come back today (a day early) for another blood test and U/S, but stay with the same units of medication. I didn’t find out what my levels were on the phone yesterday. The nurse sounded like she was in a rush, and wasn’t receptive to questions. Continue reading
I finally went in for my baseline appointment yesterday, and picked up my meds. I don’t have a lot of meds compared to a lot of other hauls I’ve looked at. I’m on the antagonist protocol, and am only using two medications to start, then adding in Orgalutran later on. Continue reading
DH and I went for our injection training yesterday. It’s really frustrating that all the appointments take about 20 minutes, but they can’t/won’t schedule them all in one day. Continue reading
I figured it might be worthwhile to keep track of how much we spend on TTC. I will probably be depressed knowing how much I spent, but I think it’s good to keep track.
How much have you spent on TTC? Let me know in the comments below!
