IVF 1.0 starts TOMORROW!!!!

To my male readers who do not want to read about bodily fluids unique to females, too bad :-D

So remember how I met with Nurse Awesome (that's her new nickname, I've decided) in October and we figured out that if AF stayed regular, we'd have to push IVF to the end of January? (The reason for that is because the embryologists have down time around the end of Dec for the holiday season.) Well, AF was late last month (which was incredibly frustrating for me since there was no way I was with child) and she was right on time this month (incredibly heartbreaking since it was our last natural TTC cycle). So I called Nurse Awesome to let her know that CD1 was yesterday since they want to keep track of that before IVF. She called back and left a message about calling in birth control for the next 2 cycles for a January IVF. I called back, left a message and said "that's fine" and told her what pharmacy I use. Then she called back with fan-freaking-tastic news :)

She double checked the calendar and realized that if I start bc tomorrow, and continue taking active ones through December 24th WE CAN START STIMS ON THE 26TH!!!!! This is a whole month ahead of schedule which is freaking amazing and it's the original time that P and I decided that we wanted to do it. I am excited and nervous and full of HOPE that this will work for us.

So I now have roughly 4 weeks to get in the best shape possible-I CAN SO DO THIS. Tonight I am having my last bottle of wine for what I hope is a very long time ;-) Tomorrow I will be heading to the studio for Zumba and TRX, which will continue until the doctor says I need to slow down. Tomorrow I will also be getting my bc pills, Metformin refill, Folgard refill and Prenatal refill. Oh, and I'll be setting a therapy appointment tomorrow!

For real, I am stoked for this. I really am. I am determined to remain hopeful and optimistic through this process. We WILL be parents <3

  7. Just wanted to let you know that I have a cousin whose sons were both from ivf. Also, I have a friend who is pregnant naturally right now. Her baby girl was ivf, they were getting ready to start the ivf process for the second baby and she never started her cycle. She was already pregnant! So, I have high hopes it will work for you as well! Keep us updated!!!

  12. Such great news! SO exciting, yet nerve racking....such a wide range of emotions. I remember TTC my girls and how it was stressful, but in a different way. This is even more so why you should do you know what and order you know what to try for 30 days. With that and working out, I went off Metformin months ago!
