blood work IVF IVF/ICSI IVF#1 preparations

CD2: Gearing up

Hello everyone.  Apologies for being absent on the blog.  It’s been a busy couple of days here.  Our family hosts an annual End of Summer cookout.  This year, we had well over 40 people show up for food, fun, and massive moon bounces. I’ve been going nonstop for the past three days and I am more than a bit tired.  But it was more than worth it.

Today is cycle day 2.  It’s been a long time since I was excited to see Aunt Flo and even longer since I was excited about starting birth control pills.  Come to think of it, I don’t think I was ever excited to start birth control pills.  Tomorrow, I have my first blood work and ultrasound appointment in preparation for IVF.

I’m not nervous.  I went through this with our IUI, but knowing that tomorrow I will get blood work to verify if my body is ready for IVF is different.  I’ve been reading blogs and following other IVF/ICSI couple social media sites to see what I can expect.  Hopefully,  I’ll get the calendar that lets me know what  our protocol will be and how soon S. and I can start the main part of our journey.

Yep.  I’m excited.  I am ready to go.  I just hope this journey goes smoothly.
