  • A Fresher’s IVF Journey 8: The End

    January 25th, 2011 Tomorrow is test day…and I am having a panic attack! I am so nervous! I am so afraid that my pregnancy test will come out negative…even though I’ve had so many symptoms. This has got to be the worst mind game ever! So much worse than any thing I have ever experienced. […]

  • A Fresher’s IVF Journey 7: The Wait

    January 19th, 2011 Today is the third day after the transfer, and I am officially the equivalent of 8DPO. I am not feeling too much, other than a little crampy. The cramps did shift a bit from my sides, to more to the front area. It almost feels like my period cramps, but its way […]

  • A Fresher’s IVF Journey 6: New Family; Old Family!

    January 11th, 2011 Last night, I had my trigger shot… and then the countdown begins to 10am, Wednesday morning!

  • A Fresher’s IVF Journey 3: Holding on to HOPE!

    December 14th, 2010 So I start my shots in 2 days! I’m so excited…but also so nervous. I hope I’ll remember the nurse’s instructions, and administer the shots just as painlessly. On a side note, I have had extreme ovulation pain for the last few days. Maybe it’s because of the birth control pills I […]

  • A Fresher’s IVF Journey 2: Fear and Paranoia

    November 22nd, 2010 A month after we agreed to try IVF, our appointment with the doctor finally came. It was mainly a chat to discuss the process, and give us an idea of our dates. Toju has been asked to return for his semen analysis on Saturday, and my assigned Nurse is to let me […]
