Photo of IVF Meds

Here's a picture of all of our IVF meds (I think 2 other boxes were actually in the fridge at the time I took this picture.)

Feeling down

I am really looking forward to trying IVF in March. (Looks like ER and ET will be in early March, not late Feb. as planned.) Really I am. I'm just having a hard time being happy about the whole waiting process and then the whole what-if-it-doesn't-happen part of it.

Days 1-4

I went to the doctor on Saturday (cycle day or "cd" 3.) I had bloodwork and an ultrasound done. The bloodwork came book - my estrogen was at 64.5. I was told that's a good level.

I started birth control pills that night.

On Feb. 12 I will start giving myself Lupron shots. I will continue the pill and add in a baby aspirin.

On Feb 22. I'll have another ultrasound and more bloodwork. I'll start Bravelle 225 (3 vials) and Menopur 75 (1 vial) on that day. Those are more shots.

I'll be back in the office on Feb. 25 for an ultrasound and bloodwork.

Cycle Day 1

I am on Cycle Day (CD) 1 today. I am going in for bloodwork on CD3, Saturday. I will also be starting birth control pills shortly after that. I have to call on Monday and schedule a date for my trial transfer.

The roller coaster ride has begun...
