Starting in May

Hi! I'm new to this board, but I'm feeling a bit apprehensive about my upcoming cycle in May and thought I could find some comfort here.
I am 33 years old and my husband (42) and I have recently decided that we want a baby. After I went off the pill, I wasn't ovulating and my period hardly ever came. I was diagnosed with PCOS.
I tried Follistim & Clomid, but the Doc said we couldn't do an IUI because my PCOS made my ovaries produce WAY too many follicles and I was at risk for 6, 7, 8, babies. He said IVF would be the best option for me.
I go in for a hysteroscopy on 4/30, and if all goes well I start Lupron 5/8. Then on to Menapur & Follistim at the end of the month.
I'm nervous about all of these injections, mixing, timing, etc. I know many of you have already gone through it and I was hoping to get some advice - and maybe offer some support to all of you too!
Thanks for reading.
