Grow follies Grow

Okay, So now we are getting into the good stuff. Bloodwork and ultrasound showed a great number of growing follicles. I still have to take those injections, which are starting to feel like acid under the skin. I feel like I have a giant water balloon in my side and I have had a headache for a week. But it's all okay!!! I have 13 follicles growing!!! I believe my egg retreival will be this weekend! I'm an so excited. I mean it's surgery, dont' get my wrong, I'm a little afriad to be put to sleep for 2-3 hours but the prospect of sleeping all day is kind of nice. I've been so tired since this whole thing started. I just can't believe that three years of trying to make a baby has come and gone and now that it is 3 years and one month..the trying to concieve battle is almost done. Well, must go get Lupron injection, get dressed for work and go walk my 2 miles....

The world of IVF

Okay so I went to the doctor yesterday and had my bloodwork and ultrasound. I was happy because they showed me some follicles that are ready to start producing eggs and I thought that was neat because who actually gets to see their babies in the making? So tonight I'm starting stim meds. Stim meds are injectables that get injected right below the belly button by..in my case..my hubby. I can't bring myself to do it. I still have to do an injection of Lupron, which keeps my own hormone levels down so they can stimulate them like they would a puppet. My egg retrieval is looking like May 20th!! and then 5 days after that, They'll put them back in. I know the percentages arent' high but God is on my side and with him, anything is possible. God has done so many things in my life to help me and I don't think he's sitting out on this one. He'll be with me every step of the way and If it doens't work, I know there's something else waiting for me. God IS Great!
