Living with Infertility

Wanting, hoping waiting,
Loving, longing, knowing,
Feeling the loss before I could lose you.
Never seeing, touching or smelling.
Dreaming, aching, crying.
Losing the hope and joy,
Of Motherhood.

Bring out the big guns....

Okay, so we started 2 more shots yesterday. These are the FSH shots along with a lower dose of Lupron. We got the package out with all of our shots and our kitchen island looked like a drug store had exploded on it. Once we made sure we knew what we were doing (you don't want to mess these shots up, that could get really expensive) Flavio became the mad scientist. With the one FSH shot, we have to mix it up ourselves. The needle shown is much bigger than the needle that goes into my hip. However, that needle is a lot like the Progesterone needle I will be having to take soon. :(

But, we were able to remember what the nurses had taught and with two more ice cubes, I made it through the first night. It wasn't bad at all....

Now just 10 to 12 more days of this and then we get to do the actual In-Vitro! I am getting excited and just pray that it will work the first time :)
