Just got off the nurse and trying to figure out my schedule...does this sound right? I started bcp's on 5/20 and have to be on them for 2 weeks. My teach is 6/3 (2 weeks). After that they order the rest of the meds. So, I could start lupon on 6/5. 2 weeks of lupon leads to 6/19. Start stimming on 6/21 which would lead to an early July retrieval. Does that sound right? This is just so complicated that my head is swimming.
If that's right, it looks like I'll be a few weeks behind a lot of you and as such will be able to learn plenty from you.
I also find that I am just now starting to get nerve attacks. Does anyone else wonder if this is really the way to go? Maybe I'm just getting cold feet since it seems so involved and so much is at stake.
I have thought many times if ivf is the way to go. It is a beast. Most people irl do not understand infertility let alone ivf. But I keep my mind on the treasured baby I am praying for. So do I get cold feet - sure. I wonder why, why, why, why. I question everyday why good people who want to get pregnant have to go thru this. But you really have to keep your mind in a positive place. Keep a visual of yourself as healthy and calm. Many ivfers try meditation and journaling to keep at peace. I also like to garden and sew. It keeps my mind off of all of those ivf things. Sharing here is wonderful because there are so many wonderful and knowledgable folks here.
Be good to yourself!
