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.
