WhimsyDae- welcome! How exciting that you are starting the cycle. It's funny, because before we started this IVF stuff, I was a very even keel person for the most part......the cool thing about going through the IVF stuff, is that it gives you a little permission to be a little bat shit crazy and you have an excuse
Talking about people getting prego at the drop of a hat when you are trying so hard....totally get that! I've been on both sides of this story, so it's weird for me. I have 2 kids(I guess they are legally adults, but they still act like 2 yr olds sometimes) that I had when I was 19 and 22, then had my tubes tied because I got prego with both of them while on Birth Control. I swear I got pregnant just walking near a guy
So, fast forward a million years and the doctors recommended IVF since my tubes were tied and my husband has a low sperm count and they thought that I would have no problems getting prego the first time with IVF since I have never had an issue in the past getting prego and carrying babies to term........so, here I am, doing my first Frozen Embryo Transfer using donor eggs(apparently I have really old eggs.....they didn't say it like that, but I know that is what it means) and my hubby's sperm. The fresh cycle with the donor eggs didn't take. I started acupuncture 4 months ago in hopes of it helping. I have no clue if it will help, but I have totally fallen in love with acupuncture! This journey has been such an eye opening experience and I have so much more appreciation for those that struggle with infertility, losing babies, etc. I've always felt bad for people with any types of problems, but now that I have been through this journey, I get it. Sorry for all of the rambling...... as for where I am in the process...I'm waiting for AF to show up too! I think I need to go out in white pants and not take any pads or tampons.....maybe then I will start
This is a great place to vent, because we know that one day you can feel on top of the world and then the next feel like crap...shoot, that can all be within a 10 minute window of time. It's all perfect, everything that you feel, just let yourself feel it. I can't wait to see all of the BFP's on here and celebrate with everyone!
Sunshine-so I'm still super scared to post on FB, but I'm sure I will eventually stop being scared...hehehehe. I don't post much on FB anyways, even just normal daily stuff. I'm what I call a FB stalker
I love to read what is going on everyday in everyone's life....... How are you feeling about starting the Lupron? The first 2 cycles when I used Lupron it gave me horrible headaches, but then these last 2 cycles, it didn't at all......or at least not the big yucky ones. I think you are going to be on Lupron much longer than me, and a higher dosage, but I'm not sure. I think I will be on 10 whatever the units are and only shoot myself for 10 days with it. I'm assuming I will start the estrogen patches at some point while I'm shooting myself....not sure. I can tell you though, it's the estrogen patches that make me bat shit crazy!!!!! I turn into Bridezilla without the wedding part....hehehehehehe.......gotta love my DH,when I go too far over the edge, he's like, "So, is today when you replaced your ***** patches?"........ he's the sweetest man and just goes with the flow. Hey, have you heard anything on Lauren? Wasn't she the one that was having some potential issues?
Gotta get back to work......I was asked to sing at one of my best friend's grandfathers rosary tonight. He wanted music sung when he died, but not at the actual funeral (she said he was super old school catholic and didn't believe music should be during a mass), so they asked me to sing at the rosary. I'm a little nervous, but honored at the same time. I believe I will be singing Amazing Grace, How Great Thou Art and It is well with my soul (not sure if that is the name of the song or not). I've been singing these songs since I popped out of my mom, so hopefully I can do them justice. She just asked me late yesterday to do it so very little prep time. Well, chat with you gals later. Have a fantastic day!
