skj, amazing!! it must feel good to see those numbers move in the right direction. and i'm jealous of your trip! i'd love to travel south america, i can't wait to hear more about it.
keli, it's funny because my husband is also diabetic and i made him show me his pens so i'd know how to use mine! the only difference is that with the insulin, if you draw out too much you can lower the dose. with the gonal pens, once you pull out the meds you are stuck with them! how did your first lupron shot go? i didn't have a problem with it, but i think i was pretty lucky, and on a very small dose. good luck!
afm, got some sad new today. my mom called to tell me that she had been hiding something from me, but now needed to tell me more. turns out my cousin had been pregnant. my mom didn't want anyone to tell me until after i was done with this ivf cycle. she is a year younger than me, and was recently married last fall, and according to my mom, she didn't want me to feel "any pressure" about getting pregnant. i was really hurt that my mom wanted to hide this from me. as much as it sucks to hear about other people getting pregnant, this is my family and i am adult enough to be happy for her. i might cry in private, but i would never deny my cousin the joy of sharing the news with me. unfortunately, the real reason for the call was that she had a miscarriage at 10 weeks. I called my cousin and told her all about the MTFHR mutations... i'm 99% convinced that she has it too and needs to be tested. to think that a little extra folic acid and this could have possibly been prevented. she seems okay about it all, she's disappointed but hoping to try again soon. my heart goes out to her. i just hope that possibly the info i could share with her may help her going forward. maybe all of the ivf issues i've been having will actually turn out to be helpful for someone!
