Part 6

Tomorrow is my baseline appointment and I am nervous. I am not nervous about the appointment but I am nervous when they will give me that call to start my stims. I know that once I start my stims, then it is just around the corner that they will retrieve my eggs.

This time has gone by so fast I am just so amazed at how time flies. I went into this thinking it was going to seem like a long time but it is going by very quickly.

I was predicting to my husband that by the end of next week we will be doing egg retrieval. How nice it would be to retrieve my eggs on Mother's day. I am definitely scared about the coming days but I know God is on my side.

If you are reading this please say a prayer for me and my husband.

I'm looking for a miracle

One morning God put this song on my heart and I have just been singing it. I am believing in God for a miracle and the success of our IVF cycle.

Part 5

I am just getting done with my homework. I don't know why I am working full-time, working on a masters and going through IVF. So now it time for me to blog my thoughts....

Well I have successfully injected myself 4 times with Lupron. I hope it was successful. But I am sure that it was successful because I am feeling the side effects. So far the only effects I am feeling are night sweats and light spotting. I noticed the light spotting on after the second day of medicine. But my IVF nurse assured me that this is all normal and part of the process. I didn't ask about the night sweats but google answered that for me! I am waking up around 3-4 in the morning nice and wet! GROSS!

I stop my BC in a few days and should get my regular cycle. Then everything starts rolling from that point.

I have an appointment set for April 28 for my first ultra sound and blood work up since beginning the meds. They will determine at that time if I am ready for my stims.

For this process I am having to give up or cut back on some things. But even with out IVF i would be cutting these things....wine, caffeine and claritin. I have cut completely wine and claritin. But caffeine I am slowly trying to ween myself off. Does anyone know what the maximum amount of caffeine I can have?

Part 4

Yesterday my husband and I had a really good day spending time with each other not worrying about IVF. So we ended the night by going over some friends house to play cards. My BFF was working on her daughters hair because you know black people and Easter is a really big thing.

So as her daughter was getting her hair done she asked me, "Robyn, when are you going to have a daughter?"

I chuckled, "Paris, I don't know but hopefully soon. Why?"

" Well I am ready for you to have a daughter. I want you to have twins"

All I could do is laugh because this child has no idea what my husband and I are about to undergo. And deep down inside we want twins so we can have 2 for the price of 1!

Who knows why Paris ever said that to me but I thought I would mark down she said it so when I get pregnant with twins I will let Paris know she got what she asked for.

Part 3

My husband and I just got back from a much needed vacation. This vacation was symbolic for me at least. Now that I am back I realize what is before me. I will be officially starting my IVF cycle. Well technically I have because I had to start my BC. I start my Lupron on April 14.

Today, I had my mock transfer. I was nervous because all I could think about was that damn dye test and the pain of that. The mock transfer was not as bad as the dye test. So the results of the mock transfer were good and all things are ready to go.

I am really nervous about starting this whole procedure but I know I have God on my side and everything will work out fine. I will post more once I start the Lupron!!
