The ins & outs of our IVF journey & life in general!
Tuesday, February 6, 2007
We are finally starting the cycle. I start taking this ironic pill tomorrow. Who ever heard of taking the Birth Control Pill to get pregnant? In the blink of an eye I spent $7,150.00 and don't even have a pair of shoes to show for it HHuummph!! Atleast I will get $60.00 in Canadian Tire Money (it's the little things that keep me going) too bad they don't sell shoes LOL!!
Mike and I will be going to Ottawa (again) on Valentines Day for our injections class... nothing says loving like sticking a needle in your wife's a$$!! I will be on the BCP's until the 26th of February. I start my superfact injections on the 17th and will have my baseline ultrasound on the 2nd or 3rd of March. If I am properly suppressed then I will start 100 units of the puregon. From there it all depends on how I react to the meds. I will keep you all updated as things progress in that area (how many follies, how big, etc...) I should know by the first week of April if I am pregnant or not. Hope for a belly bean!
Simply said, Infertility sucks! I wouldn’t wish it on anyone. That being said, it has taught me a lot about strength, compassion and patience. I am extremely fortunate to have conceived a perfect, beautiful daughter via my 1st IVF cycle. I am hoping that we will be just as fortunate this time around.
