Day 1 – the beginning

September 23, 2006 at 10:00 am Leave a comment

AF started today, which means that any hope of miraculously conceiving on my last cycle before IVF is over. I am both sad and excited. I am glad that I made the decision to not try anything else and go for IVF because ultimately what I want is a family. And I know that IVF is the fastest way there (since the chances are higher than with anything else).

To date I have had 4 IUIs, my first one resulting in a BFP that was unfortunately not meant to be. It was a devastating experience to lose that pregnancy, and the only thing that kept me going was the hope of succeeding again soon, and being able to make it. Unfortunately six months later, and 3 IUIs later I have not been successful.

My RE has suggested to move to injectables and IUI. (since I had not yet taken any drug stronger than clomid). But after a lot of thinking, I have decided to move right for IVF. I will try to write a post sometime on the IVF choice.

Today begins day 1 of my pre-IVF cycle. With the protocol in my RE’s office, I should begin lupron on day 21 of this cycle, and then next cycle will be my IVF cycle. So from today I have 3 weeks. I plan to work out, drink vitamins, get in shape both physically and emotionally, and prepare myself in the best way I can. The thought that I will be doing something that has such a good chance of succeeding is exciting. And perhaps finally, my TTC journey is at its culminating end.
