IVF treatment

About a week after having the lumpectomy I started the IVF treatment. My hubby had a meeting in the city on the day of the appointment and as I wasn’t yet able to drive,┬áhe dropped me off at the clinic and would come and pick me up later. 839 more words

Some weeks are harder than others, and this week has been one of those weeks. I’m on the daily plan for IVF, meaning that every day my day starts with an injection, then a 7 am trip to the doctor’s office to get my blood drawn followed by a trans-vaginal ultrasound to measure the size and shape of the follicles in my ovaries. 789 more words

This week has been a particularly hard week for me. Last Sunday was my last birth control pill. Monday started with a 7 am drive to the doctor for blood work and ultrasound. 1,500 more words



I don’t even understand how it’s only 6 days. This feels like a lifetime. Between constantly thinking about this I have a big presentation coming up that I can’t stop worrying about. 146 more words

I feel very left behind today. My sister and sister in law on my side, and my two sisters in law on J’s side all have had their first child in the past year or so. 140 more words



I started the progesterone suppositories last night and it was interesting. It went fine, but I got very anxious right before. Very soon after I started feeling crampy, and that’s gotten worse today. 64 more words

I just feel lonely. I wish I had a friend to complain about the 2ww (that literally only started today)… But the only person I know going through something similar is very closed, doesn’t like to talk about it or be reminded of it. 33 more words
