IVF underway
178

Rather than flooding the board with multiple posts about my cycle, considering its not your usual TTCAM, I will just have this thread and update here as needed.

I had my first u/s today. The call-back nurse said to take my last BCP tonight and let AF arrive this weekend (should be brief since she said my lining was expectedly thin). I will start stimming on Monday: 175IU Follistim

OMG, I have a huge case of the TTC-itis. You know, that neurotic disorder where you are scrambling to be in control of something you have no control of? Today I woke up at 3am terrified that I'll have a leading follicle and some little ones, and the whole cycle will be messed up. Couldn't go back to sleep for 2 hrs.

I'm with ya - I was like that too with my first IVF - but honestly, those doctors so know what they are doing and it's pretty unreal how they can "control" your body and make adjustments to get your body to do what it needs to do. I know it's easier said than done, but when you get a little unnerved, just remember they know what they are doing. Today is your first injection right? :) When do you go in for your u/s? Antral follies will give you an idea of what is going on and that they'll get with your first u/s... KUP and deep breaths...

Yeah, we did the first injection this morning. She's having me do 150IU follistim in the mornings and 75IU Menopur in the evenings. I had the baseline last friday and she didn't tell me how many antrals there were. I get b/w Wednesday and probably another u/s on Friday.

FX that AF comes soon so that you can stop worrying about that bit of it.

Ugh, I emailed my RE about not getting AF yet and she wants to see me for a u/s later this morning. I can't sleep b/c of hot flashes and fear.
