17 Pills Down… 2 to Go!

Time moves so VERY slowly when you are on birth control pills. At least for me it does. But I’m excited to announce that after taking my pill this morning, I only have TWO MORE pills to go! Sunday will be the last day… finally! :) I have a 7:00 am appointment on Monday morning for my Pre-IVF blood work and ultrasound. Provided everything looks okay (keeping my fingers crossed!) they will hopefully tell me to begin stims on March 24th! It’s getting closer!
Speaking of getting closer… I looked at my IVF protocol today. Provided that all goes well (and that I do indeed begin injections on the 24th ), it shows that my tentative date for my egg retrieval is April 4th! It’s exciting to think that it’s getting so close!  
So all in all… not too much going on here yet. I really wish I could blog more often but sometimes I find that it’s so hard to put my weird thoughts into words. My mind is constantly racing... I live and breathe this stuff. I will spend a whole day trying to decide if we should transfer one or two embryos and I will spend all of the next day wondering if we will even have ANY embryos to transfer! For right now, I’m just praying that my ovaries cooperate once we begin stims and that they produce lots of follicles that contain healthy and mature eggs!
 I’m just really trying to take things one day at a time… and trying not to go crazy in the process.


  1. Good luck! Thinking of you!

  2. I wanted to thank you for all the sweet supportive comments you've been leaving on my blog, and I'm glad to know that my story has been helpful in getting you ready and psyched for your own IVF cycle.

    Wishing you the best of luck and a steady injection hand :)

  3. I agree... being on the Pill felt so strange and time went soooo slowly... was quite ironic being on the Pill while TTC !! Things will speed up soon xoxo

  4. I'm only a week into BC and I swear it feels like a lifetime. I'll be on it until 4/11...blech! You'll be trying to keep busy, making your way through your 2ww by that time!!!

  5. Exciting! April 4th is so soon!!
