So I am on day 2 of my IVF treatment plan. So far it has gone like this:
Yesterday I took a total of 15 pills, yes that is a 1 and a 5! And the gave myself 2 injections.
Today I am down to just 5 pills and 2 injections!
For the next 10 or so days I will follow this schedule!! oh, wait I forgot...on Friday I will add a third injection and a lot more pills to my cocktail. Can it get any better??? Oh, yes it can. Over the next month I will take more pills, give myself more shots, have two "surgical" procedures, and have things put in places that I will not even mention...all in an effort to have a child. And, I get to pay money for every last bit of it!
So far I don't seem to have made the transformation into raving lunatic bitch yet...however if you ask my husband he may tell you a different story. And, after all it is only day two.
I don't like to think about the dreaded two weeks at the end of the month. Those are probably the darkest and most miserable days in the life of an infertile. The two week wait. They might as well call it the "Two weeks of being too scared to do anything including go to the bathroom, sneeze ,or cough for fear that you might accidentally push your baby out and ruin the whole thing."
Can that really happen? Probably not...but in the mind of a hormone ravaged, baby deprived, stressed out, financially broke, infertile... it so could.
So, we'll give it our best shot and see how it goes! No sneezing allowed!
