It took awhile for us to get to this point, to be ready to go through the emotional toll that the IVF process takes on us. But I am so ready, WE are so ready! Ready to get this started AND get this over with. I am so excited for the upcoming weeks that it will be hard to focus on much else… but I will. Things are good.
Yesterday was the Baseline Doctor appt (bloodwork and Ultrasound). Everything looked good so I got the go ahead to start the meds. My first med is called Lupron which keeps me from ovulating. I took one injection last night and 2 today. Tomorrow I will add the injection medications Menopur and Gonal-F which will stimulate my ovaries and “beef” them up. So that means 4 shots a day until Wednesday when I go back to the Doctor for them to check my progress.
The shots are actually really easy (at least these ones). They are small needles that I take in my stomach. I barely feel them. So far the only side effect I have had from the Lupron is hot flashes… so crazy. One minute you are fine the next minute you feel like you stepped out of a sauna.
On a scrap note, I am so excited to be going to my local scrapbook store Rubon Rouge tomorrow to take a class from the FAB Tim Holtz. I am really lucky and honored to have the opportunity to take one of his classes. I will post pics of the project when I complete it.
I have been scrapping a lot more lately.. my MOJO has been flowing! Here is a recent layout I did of Sarah and her friend Allana (you can see her Mom’s Blog Run DMT here)
Thanks for stopping by. I will keep you posted on my progress.
