Countdown to Suppression!

10 days till I start Suprefact for suppression. Yayyyyy... I meet my pharmacist next week and she will explain me all about the drugs. It is getting more real now. I had never imagined I would have to go through IVF. Anything for a baby hey?
On another note I told my boss at work yesterday that we are doing IVF so I will need time off for my appointments etc. She was very supportive but I think fertile people just cannot understand this process. She was like" oh that's exciting!" yeah right sticking needles into your stomach is soooooo exciting. But I am glad that she was so supportive. I was so stressed about telling my boss because no one even knew we were trying. So I feel very relieved now.

I came down with the flu over the weekend so I was home yesterday. Got a call from the RE's office and they were able to fit me in this cycle. Yaaaay.. So I start supression drugs on December 21'st, Stims on January 5th, ER is tentatively scheduled for January 18th and ET for January 21st. I really need a lot of prayers and support now. I am so excited but also scared.

CD1...Now waiting for call back from RE's Office.

AF showed up this morning. But surprisingly enough I had very mild cramps and no throwing up this month. Yayyyy...Oh did I tell you I always have very severe cramps the first day and I always throw up at least once the first few hours. This was my 2nd cycle after lap. So I think the cramps I used to have were from the mild endo they found and removed.

So I called the RE's office this afternoon and requested for an IVF cycle this month. I convinced Hubby to get going with IVF. I should get a call back next week sometime. I hope everything will fall into place now.

Told you it was clomid!!

So spotting started last night. I think AF will be here tomorrow or Saturday. Right now I am debating on whether to do another IUI this month or just go for IVF. I think I am more inclined towards IVF . I am just tired of playing the waiting game. What if I ovulate from the left side again this month? I really don't want to waste another month. So I think I am going to call and book for IVF when AF shows up. and then if all goes well we should have our bfp before our 5th wedding anniversary which is on the 10th of Feb.

Still Waiting.........

I am 15 dpo today and my luteal phase is never longer than 13 days. I think clomid is playing tricks with me. But yeah still no sign of AF. I had some intense cramps last night and I thought there we go but when I went to the bathroom to check, nothing. Not even a hint of spotting. Confused???

Waiting for AF......

AF is due tomorrow. I am hoping (secretly not!) that it will show up on time so I can move on with an IUI in December. So far I have no symptoms of AF, just a few cramps here and there. I usually start spotting 2-3 days before AF due date but nothing this month. But it could all be because of clomid. This week is going to be tough. Arggg.....

My First Post !!!

After reading a lot of blogs about infertility, I thought this was a really good place to vent the frustrations of my infertility journey. Who else can better understand than someone going through this process or someone who's been through. So a little history! I am 26 yrs. old. Happily married to DH. We have been trying to get pregnant on and off for the last 3 years. Have done 2 clomid IUI's that failed. Had a laparoscopy in September 2008 which showed mild endometriosis and adhesions attaching my left ovary to the pelvic wall. My Re wants me to try a couple more IUI's only the months I ovulate from the right side. So in November I booked an IUI cycle but of course I ovulated from the left side. Now waiting for my period to show up, which is due in a week, so I can have an IUI in December. I am only planning to wait till December and then start IVF in January. Please send some prayers my way!!
