@Buttercup - Crossing everything for you, hun. Hoping you get nice and hormonal
@RD15 - Also crossing things for your bloods tomorrow!
@Ladydee - Great news about the Hysteroscopy! Hopefully it'll help knowing that there are no problems there. Hope the weekend away is relaxing and doing something nice for your bub sounds beautiful.
@Heyside - Glad your weekend away was nice, I'd kill for some time away myself but I'm now at the mercy of the IVF gods! Lol! You're right, it's great to be doing something again, I feel like I'm taking steps towards the goal again. I decided against Syranel...just finished a round of sinus meds complete with nosebleeds so I didn't want to be shoving more stuff up there, Lucrin for me!
I also hear you with the whole people sharing about others thing. Although I've always been pretty up front about the whole biz so I rarely get any of the awkward questioning about when I'm going to have a baby etc. I feel like infertility shouldn't be something to be ashamed of these days, there are so many of us out there and I feel like, by sweeping it under a rug, we make it harder for people coming after us because nobody wants to talk about it so you find it hard to know what to do when you're starting out IYKWIM?
@Twinkley - I'm only on day 4 of Lucrin injections. Have a scan on the 20th to make sure I'm down regulated then hopefully I'll begin Gonal. As you can probably tell, I'm doing a long cycle. My first one, all the others have been short ones. So I'm a bit nervy but I think I'm doing okay. 12 follies sounds amazing! I hope I get so many! I've only ever gotten 2 before (low dose meds, long story).
AFM - Things are going well. Getting used to needles again and the whole act of drawing up the meds makes me feel like a junkie. Lol! I only ever had premade needles or pens before but the Lucrin is in a little bottle. So weird. Anyway, like a sign from heaven that a donor is the right thing, DH got another bout of cellulitis this week which means heavy antibiotics and probably would have damaged his sperm if there was any there. So the choice to use a donor feels like it's meant to be. My acupuncturist is not very pleased, insists that he can help DH's sperm but like everyone else he doesn't really understand; if it has taken us 5 years for the first baby and we want more than one I don't really have the time to "wait and see". Anyway, all going swimmingly, will check in again soon
