So my period on December 28th (a Saturday). Dawn, my contact at the UH Fertility Center, got my prescription for birth control pills (BCPs) for me on Monday. So I officially started as of 7:30 pm last night with my first BCP. Well, this morning has already been a trip. I woke up SUPER nauseated and dry heaved for a while and was covered in cold sweat. Hopefully that will just be a one time thing. I pray the cycle isn't a bust before it even really began because of this road bump!
So here is my plan for the rest of January. BCPs until January 19th. Start Lupron on January 13th. Hopefully get my next period by the 22nd or 23rd so I can baseline on the 24th. If that all goes well we'll start the Follistim injections then too! Last IVF I stimmed for 9 days.

- After an 8 year battle with infertility and countless struggles, our family is finally complete. This blog chronicles the journey it took for us to start and build the family we always wanted. Background on the blog (started in 2012, just days before I found out the embryo transfer for our son worked).... I decided to start a blog after realizing I have only been able to make it through my TWW's (two week waits) with the help of Google and with the openness of other women suffering from infertility sharing their own stories and giving others hope. I have time and time again found my exact symptoms on other women's blogs and felt an overwhelming sense of calmness they provided me. I thought it was time to pay it forward and hopefully provide this same thing to other women on their own journeys.
