Getting The Ball Rolling

It's official.

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.

Sick, no?

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.


  1. YAY! I am so glad your IVF cycle is starting! I know it will work for you... this will bring your your next child! With such ease you get pregnant, and this time, that bay will be in the right place to start. SO SO SO happy for you!

    I loved the injection training, too, so feel free to ask me any questions. Cannot wait to hear the details of your protocol and timeline. WOOOOO HOOO!!!!

  2. Hope everything goes well at your appointment. Perhaps we both will be lucky this time around!

  3. You are going to ace injections!

    Good luck!

  4. That's awesome!! That's so sweet that your DH is going with you and is going to help you every step of the way, how supportive!! :) I can't wait to hear how it went.

  6. Wow, how exciting. And scary. OMG. I will be here with you the whole time. : )

  7. Excellent! Fingers crossed for you all!

  8. Oooohhh...the shots are no-fun at all...I hope you learn the right way to do them and they are no more a pain than what they are...

  9. Wow! Big step! Exciting, and scary and such a huge deal- I am so happy for you, and will look forward to following you through this process.

  10. Good luck with your IVF! :)
