I have finally shared the last post from the journal of my 1st IVF cycle. You can check out the complete journal here.
It was such a roller coaster of emotions, especially with it being my first time. Hopefully, it will be of help to someone walking that road.

Just got back from the hospital. The bad thing is that I only got my blood taken. The chat with the Doctor will be after I have my sonohysterogram next week Thursday. But the good thing is that I got assigned a Nurse, and she seems really nice. Anyways, I got my history taken, blood work done, and an appointment booked for next Thursday. Hopefully, my DH would have had his semen analysis done next Saturday.
So, still in the dark as to what protocol I will be on, or when exactly I’ll start, but I have a good feeling I’ll be good for my October-November cycle. Amen! Amen!! Amen!!!

I just wish the days would go by quickly. Everything seems to be crawling right along. I can’t wait to get things on the road!
I’m also feeling low because my DH is not as gong ho about this IVF thing as I am. He’s not in any hurry and thinks we could still try for longer. He thinks 2 years isn’t a big deal. I, on the other hand, am very mindful of my 33 years of age, and am not interested in wasting another 2 years before decide on IVF. He says he’s going along with the process, but just wants me to know he’s only doing it for my sake. It hurts so much because I so want us to be partners in this. I just pray that God blesses us with success first time around, so this whole TTC madness can end!

Went to Nordica this morning. The results of last week’s blood work came back very fine. I had a physical examination this morning, which also came back fine. I still have the sonohysterogram booked for Thursday, and hopefully DH will have his semen analysis on Saturday. My doctor says I might be placed on the long protocol, so that would mean down regging from my day 21 (which would be October 2nd). I pray with all my heart that this timeline works!
SO..we are almost all systems go……
