Still waiting

I thought I was doing okay during this wait, but I don't think I'm doing as well as I had hoped.

Honoring Tittle

January 25 marks four years. Four years since we were told by the high-risk clinic that we couldn't come in for an ultrasound because "it would provide no useful information." Four years since we called our fertility clinic and they got us in right away. Four years since we had an ultrasound and discovered that Tittle's heart was no longer beating.

And now we wait...

As decided, I took the trigger on Monday night. Last night I was awakened a few times while rolling over in bed due to ovary pain. This morning was our IUI.

We're almost there

I had another appointment yesterday (Saturday). The scan went well, the blood draw was okay and we entered the tight-rope walk that is me during fertility treatments.

Crying at the blood draw station

Yesterday was our u/s #2 after starting follistim. I did not want a repeat of Sunday's blood draw, so I've been trying to drink, drink, drink.

So grateful for Gus

This weekend was really nice. We didn't necessarily do anything all that great, but it was just nice, we spent time together and had a good time.

U/S and Vein blow-out

I've only had 2 days of follistim, so I knew that there wouldn't be any break-out follicles yet, but overall, I was pleased with my scan this morning. The blood draw, not so much.

Change of Schedule

So, I got home last night around 6pm, was greeted by Jon and Gus and took my follistim kit out of the refrigerator so I could check the log. My cartridge was at -25 units...

Stupid F***ing Weather

I ordered my follistim and ovidrel yesterday for delivery today because my first injection is tonight. Delivery was supposed to happen by 3pm (15 minutes ago). Where are my meds? Indianapolis.

Here we go again

After taking a break over the holidays from thinking or talking about when to go back to fertility treatments, we are starting injections tomorrow. The last we REALLY spoke, Jon was going to take his meds until February and we wouldn't start treatments until after that. Well, obviously, that's all changed.

Happy New Year! No, not really

I hate that phrase. I hear it and read it every year, and every year it makes me cringe inside. Oscar's and Bella's due date was January 1, 2010.

2013 Christmas

Monday (Dec. 23) was a regular work day for us, so it was a nice buffer as we headed into the holiday.
