Quick update



First, thanks for all your sweet encouragement yesterday. This is such an amazing community.

A quick update as I’m about to hit the road to visit a client – I had my baseline this morning. Wow, this clinic is the most efficient place ever. I walked in at 8 a.m. and out at 8:30! The scan looks good. No cysts, lots of tiny follies waiting to grow and my lining is super thin, which explains the total lack of a period. Dr. A said that based on how things look he expects my e2 levels to come back nice and suppressed, too. Assuming they don’t call and tell me otherwise, I am to begin 150 iu of Gonal-F tonight.

I’m excited and terrified. Last night I cried to Mr. Husband for the first time about this. I’m just so scared that it won’t work, or worse, that it will work but we’ll lose the baby. There are so many women right now who have either lost or are at extremely high risk of losing their baby or babies. My heart aches for them and my mind braces for the same to happen to me. Which is not rational. There are risks with everything, there is always a chance of failure. Dwelling on this chance will get me no where but into a psych ward!

Today I’m traveling to North Kentucky to conduct a photo shoot and interview with a client success story. I’m excited to escape my desk and do what I went to school to do – interview. I get to do this so rarely in this job. I’m looking forward to the change of pace. I’ll post more tonight or tomorrow.

    Such great news!! How did Mr. Husband take your breakdown? Hopefully it felt good to get all those fears and worries out and now you can focus on the goal. All your fears are normal, we just have to acknowledge them and press on anyways. It’ll be whatever it’ll be. Hope the interview goes great today!

    Yay! So exciting that you are moving on and cyst free. It is such a crazy place to be, with all the drugs and success and failure…I hear ya. It’s impossible not to freak out, and yet staying calm probably helps success…..psych ward it is!!

    Yay! No cysts, awesome. I hope you enjoy your trip. I’d say don’t think too much, but that never works for me. Just try to focus on each day when it comes. I know that is hard to do, but hopefully it will save your sanity. 🙂

    YAY!!! I’m so happy to hear that you’ve cleared the first hurdle! I understand where you’re coming from about being trepidatious, but there is a very good chance that all of this will work. Hang onto that. I’m rooting for you.

    That’s awesome that you don’t have any cysts. Good luck with the Gonal-F. Let me know if you want my left over 375IU. I can mail it out ASAP. I would hate to throw it away! I just took my IVF cycle one step at a time and that really helped, otherwise there was too much to be nervous about and I still stressed way too much. I hope it goes really well for you!!

    Yay! I’m so happy for no cysts. Good luck with this cycle. Have fun in Kentucky!
