I FINALLY got my period....a week late of all things. So the countdown can now officially begin to starting my third IVF cycle in October.
Next steps.... Mike and I go to Cleveland this Friday to meet with a nurse to sign the IVF paperwork and get STD testing AGAIN. I asked if we could just use last August's testing from UH Hospital but the doctor said something about it needing to be 6 months current or something. So that will be another several hundred dollars down the tube. We don't have STDs people! Quit stealing our money! We will also get a tentative calendar on Friday and they'll order the meds. We also have "Injection Training"...........no comment. As if I don't know how to give injections yet. Oh well. We'll play along. :)
I pray this will be our third and final IVF round. I pray we get a healthy "take home baby" out of it! Anyone reading this, please say a quick prayer for us.
Also, our loan also got approved through ARC for 11k and change. I pray that is the last one we need to take out for making babies.
Oh! And I start acupuncture today weekly until the transfer!!

- 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.
