Injectibles arrived… It’s feeling real.

4 Jun

My first shipment of injectibles arrived today.  Gearing up for IVF means doing at least one round of injectibles and most likely IUI.  Just ordering them was a major process.  I attended the class where they demo’d all the options where my head was just spinning.  With no idea on prices or what my doctor would recommend or my insurance would include, I tried to learn about them all.  I feel incredibly lucky because we were able get a big discount on them through our insurance.  Yeah! I am so glad they arrived ok.  I had nightmares last night imagining our $2k of refrigerated medicine left somewhere to spoil.  If we didn’t receive them by noon today we’d have to wait until Monday.

Next step, welcome cycle startup.  My body is being REALLY shy this month.  I took THREE pregnancy tests that came back negative so I don’t have much hope that that is what is going on.  Today is CD 33 and I stopped the progesterone suppositories back on CD 28.  Late cycle start and no pregnancy is kind of an evil one two punch.

    We did 5 IUI and 2 IVF before we got lucky. I wish you the best of luck and keep loving each other.
