So… I guess I should have updated : )
We have started our IVF protocol. We’re due for a retrieval around July 20- in almost 2 weeks, crazy!!!
The Lupron shots have been easy peasy, except for this morning when I must have poked it into a spot on my stomach where there was less padding (fat). Either way, I just jammed it in, and everything was fine. I’m having a little bit of stomach upset on the Lupron, but my acupuncturist said that with my body trying to balance all of these hormones it lets it out through my stomach. TMI, but good to know.
Other than that we’ve been pushing on and are excited about this new phase. I’ve been walking daily, doing Yoga, acupuncture, castor oil packs, and meditating on my ever-expanding belly. I’m pretty excited for all the preparation and feel like we are doing all we can.
In a moment of fright I applied for the Attain program and so now we are doing that. Although, I still feel like I could back out of it- which is allowed in the contract…
So I’m back to square one, confused. If we pull out of Attain and it doesn’t work- we can afford another go- but that’s probably it. If we stay in and get pregnant the first time I will be ecstatic but wondering how we fund our next baby(ies)- which is getting WAYYY ahead of myself. Anyway, my husband thinks I’m crazy but loves me anyway : ) So we’ll see what happens with the Attain decision.
I guess that’s it for now. I’m hoping to do more frequent updates, but it was kind of hard to actually write down that we are doing IVF. That in 3 weeks I could FINALLY be pregnant. That we are going to have a baby. It’s all a lot to wrap my head around.
Happy Monday to all!
