now and ever more

each journey begins with one step . . . a baby step

finally a schedule . . . March 29, 2012

Hubby and I were out most of yesterday and when we got home I had a message from the nurse with my IVF schedule!  FINALLY!!!

So April 1 is my last birth control pill!  I have been on these since February 13.  So glad to finally be off!!  I start the Micro-dose Lupron injections on Wednesday.  I will do 10 units in the morning and 10 units in the evening.  Then Friday, April 6 will be my baseline appointment and that evening I will add in 225 units of Follistim and 75 units of Menopur.  You know if this was my first IVF I would be very scared of taking 4 shots in one day.  But I am so excited for this to be starting that I think I would do 20 in a day if it would help.  Then I will have monitoring appointments on April 9, 11, and 13.  Egg retrieval will be the following week!  It is actually happening.  So excited!


So I was helping hubby yesterday with his show and someone came up to me after and asked if we had kids.  I usually get asked that at least once a show.  And my response is always “not yet.”  Most people leave it at that.  However the couple said, “how long have you been married?”  I said 3 years and the man said “oh you have plenty of time.”  Of course I just smiled and nodded.  But here is what I wanted to say . . .

Actually no we don’t have plenty of time.  We have been trying to get pregnant for 3 years and I am now 40.  So we don’t have plenty of time!

Ok, I feel better.  Thanks for letting me get that out! 🙂


Bunny check:  I have been looking at them every morning trying not to disturb them.  Today I saw that they had their eyes open!  I may try to take a photo later.  I imagine they will be on their way soon.

Thanks for reading.
