The purpose of this blog is to document my fertility treatment journey. I am 25 years old and have been trying to conceive a baby with my husband for over 2 years and have sadly experienced one miscarriage and a chemical pregnancy. We have recently discovered that I have Poly-Cystic ovaries and are using fertility treatments and acupuncture to help us add a little one to our family....

My Meds Have Arrived!
They are here! And it's very exciting... I've seen a lot of these posts with pictures of IVF medications so I thought I would be prepared... but it's still so overwhelming. All of the medications came in 7 different boxes and I was surprised how excited I was opening each box.
Here they are!
I have two Follistem Pens because my Nurse gave me an extra one just in case... :)
Just as I was getting acquainted with all of my brand new meds, UPS delivered one more box.... I opened it and groaned....
Yup... my Endometrin - Progesterone VAGINAL inserts. Now, don't get me wrong, I'm very thankful that my clinic doesn't use the PIO shots but I have a feeling that this is going to be...gross. I've done the Prometrium suppositories before and they were bad enough. The Endometrim comes with applicators.... and it says I have to use it THREE times a day. So... yeah, not looking forward to it at all.
I'm just so happy that everything is here and ready to go! 8 more days of birth control... I can't wait until I can toss those and get started with everything! Just trying to be patient.
After my meds arrived yesterday, Mark felt a little left out when I was taking pictures of all of my IVF gear. So, in an effort to include him... I took a picture of HIS IVF gear...
