M. And I are set for our "official" IVF consult.
This coming Monday, we will spend a couple of hours with Dr. Hope and his staff. On the agenda? Signing papers, learning what our protocol will be, where to order our meds, and of course, injections.
Injections are what I'm looking forward to most of all.
Let me clarify, I'm NOT looking forward to being on the receiving end of the injections. Our lesson on Monday will include how to mix the meds and properly give the injections. This is the part I find interesting, the fact that I will be taught how to do this. (My original career path choice was Pre-med, until organic chemistry came along in college.) And, I want to see how M. does during training, before I let him anywhere near me with a needle.
Excited, scared, hopeful, sick to my stomach, anxious...such a range of emotions that are going through me.
It's all becoming real.
