To my male readers who do not want to read about bodily fluids unique to females, too bad
So remember how I met with Nurse Awesome (that’s her new nickname, I’ve decided) in October and we figured out that if AF stayed regular, we’d have to push IVF to the end of January? (The reason for that is because the embryologists have down time around the end of Dec for the holiday season.) Well, AF was late last month (which was incredibly frustrating for me since there was no way I was with child) and she was right on time this month (incredibly heartbreaking since it was our last natural TTC cycle). So I called Nurse Awesome to let her know that CD1 was yesterday since they want to keep track of that before IVF. She called back and left a message about calling in birth control for the next 2 cycles for a January IVF. I called back, left a message and said “that’s fine” and told her what pharmacy I use. Then she called back with fan-freaking-tastic news
She double checked the calendar and realized that if I start bc tomorrow, and continue taking active ones through December 24th WE CAN START STIMS ON THE 26TH!!!!! This is a whole month ahead of schedule which is freaking amazing and it’s the original time that P and I decided that we wanted to do it. I am excited and nervous and full of HOPE that this will work for us.
So I now have roughly 4 weeks to get in the best shape possible-I CAN SO DO THIS. Tonight I am having my last bottle of wine for what I hope is a very long time Tomorrow I will be heading to the studio for Zumba and TRX, which will continue until the doctor says I need to slow down. Tomorrow I will also be getting my bc pills, Metformin refill, Folgard refill and Prenatal refill. Oh, and I’ll be setting a therapy appointment tomorrow!
For real, I am stoked for this. I really am. I am determined to remain hopeful and optimistic through this process. We WILL be parents <3
