Marking My Calendar

I've spent the last three days in limbo - cranky, impatient limbo, that is.

Today, finally, I got the all clear for IVF #2. Since my fertility clinic uses the long down-reg protocol, nothing exciting is happening right now - nothing except the birth control pill. (I hate, HATE this part of the IVF cycle.)

I go in for my first meds appointment on July 10 - which just happens to fall in the school holidays, perfect timing! :) Instead of Synarel nasal spray, I'm going to be doing Lucrin injections. They'll also be increasing my Puregon dosage from 125ml for 7 days, to 175/150ml for 7 days. Hopefully that's enough to stimulate my stubbornly rubbish ovaries into gear, unlike last time...

Anyway, I'm ridiculously pleased. I like having dates to look forward to. Makes me feel like we're actually doing something, instead of just waiting around & wishing the days away. So here's to time flying by, to stabbing myself with needles, to googling every little symptom and to being thankful for having a husband who still loves me through all my crazy hormonal mood swings.

So glad we're doing this together again! I start BCPs Monday. It's our time, girl! Your "rubbish ovaries" are going to behave as are my hard headded eggs.

Love the cartoon. Good luck with the second IVF. I am just starting my second, too. And it falls on my school holiday as well! What's up with us teachers and infertility. Not good. Love the next post on all the "nice" things people say to you about pregnancy and not making it happen. Idiots. Here's to getting pregnant.
