Well today was Day 1 in the IVF process. After a quick meltdown I injected the Follism (sp) in my belly and survived! It actually didn't hurt at all. I had my first BW and US this morning, so gross to have an US while with AF! EWW!! I go again on Friday-then MOnday and so on. I have an arsenal of meds it's ridiculous!!! You girls deserve medals!!!! Let me tell you I left IVF class with my head spinning. This is not an easy process. At this point I think 2 embryos will be transferred, we have to sit with the RE and discuss it further but in IVF class they said they typically do 2. DH is not at all happy with it. He really wants to do just one, but I told him that I think we should go with what the RE says and then I looked at him and said that I really would not want to go thru this again...so he kinda shut up.
Wow, it's going to be a busy busy next week or 2. As I said before, my hat off to you ladies who are going thru this or already went thru it. I will KUP!
Oh and metformim is still kickin my butt. I have vomitting and diarrhea. Lost a few lbs since I started it, but I will stick with it. I can't look back now.
The meds through me for a loop too but it gets easier, I mainly had lots of mood swings though but everyone around me (like the hubby) understood. At first I didn't think I could get the hang of it but thankfully tons of online videos to help if I forgot anything. I think transferring 2 is a good idea, I am just like you where I only wanted to do it one round, hence being pregnant with twins. It's a lot to go through...but think of it this way, pretty soon you can be seeing that BFP and hopefully have lots of good embryos to freeze.

I haven't done IVF but even the IUI/Injectible cycles are crazy. I know you will get through it though! Can't wait to see how it turns out!
And yes, ultrasound on CD3 is so yucky, I hate it! I've done it so many times though now that it's routine, which is sad. I've gotten to the point that I joke with the nurses that I have no shame left. I've been poked and prodded and jabbed and sucked dry.
I am so proud of you!!
I may have my problems but at least I just have to have a simple procedure and take a small pill!
You... Well... All you who have/ been going through this ... Well my respect fir you is huge!!
Mari... I just can't wait for your bfp!!!
It's been such a long road!!!
And now there is an end in sight!!!
I am so excited for you!!

Liz-thank you so much. It has been such a hard 2 and half years with the infertility and death of my mom. I really just want a little ray of light to shine in our house finally.
