Here we go

They have arrived.....I thought that $8400 worth of fertility meds would look a little more impressive than this. I thought there might be more I guess.... I was so on edge, just waiting for the drugs to come, just hoping they would arrive and everything would be ok......Now that the meds have arrived, this feels crazy. I am doing IVF. Wow. I don't even know what to say.
I am scared, excited, hopeful, and scared.
This week has been a little crazy.
I stopped birth control on Tuesday, and have been waiting for AF since. I do have to say, I hope with everything in me that I never have to take a birth control pill ever again in my life. I have pimples like when I was 15. I want to crawl under a rock and hide.
Wednesday the meds came. When DH called and said he was on his way home with two coolers I was a little nervous......It wasn't that bad. But the reality of this whole thing is making me a little crazy.
I was thinking about doing some acupuncture, but I just can't bring myself to go to the doctor any more than I already am.....I am not sick. I don't think it's necessary to make any more doctor's appointments. Eastern or Western doctors.
So tomorrow morning we are off to see Dr. D. We are handing in all consent forms, and I have the first of many ultrasounds and blood work. It's really real......It's pretty fucking crazy.


  1. Congrats!!!! You are going to do great.

    I agree with you on accupunture. I did it for a while and just didn't like it (or the price tag of $75 a session).

    With my cycle that worked I also added a daily baby aspirin and 400mcg of vitamin B6. There are some studies that suggest it helps with uterine lining. Something to look into if you are interested.

    I will be praying for you guys!! I hope you get tons of follicles and many mature embryos! But remember, it only takes one!

  2. Thanks Emily!! I am doing the baby aspirin already (for about 2 weeks now) will def look into the B6.....Thanks for your support!!
