Quick IVF Update

The shots are going as well as can be expected. I officially have some really nice black and blue bruises on my stomach from the Follistim. Other than that nothing big is going on. I'm shocked that I haven't emotionally crashed yet. On day 3 of my first round of IVF, I CRASHED. I seriously cried all day long. It was horrible. I'm not sure if it's because I have London to distract me this time or what, but I'm actually doing OK. Although I'm sure Mike would disagree. I've snapped him quite a few times. Sorry babe!

I'm starting to worry that these shots aren't doing anything. Last time I could already feel my expanding ovaries. It wasn't anything big, but I could definitely tell that something was growing inside there. I'm not even bloated yet.  I know, I know, it's only day 3 of stims. There is still plenty of time. My first monitoring appointment is tomorrow morning so I guess I'll have a better idea of what's going on then. I promise to post the results when I get home.

P.S. I really have to stop comparing this cycle to last.

Thinking of you. I've not gone through all that stuff, so I can't even imagine how out of control it must make you feel. Best of luck!

You've got it, each cycle is different so don't try to compare but I'll admit I start to worry when I'm not feeling anything either. I'm only on day 2, but the low dose hcg makes my stomach SO sore!! I feel ya on the bruises! Good luck with your appointment tomorrow! Mine is Friday. Looking forward to your update.

Hopefully you mind will be at ease once you have your appt.

Good luck to you! It must be reassuring to know it worked once and could again. After two rounds of IVF so far ending in miscarriages, I'm having a hard time believing it for myself- but reading your story is encouraging. Thank you!

Glad to hear things are going well so far. It must be hard not to compare the two cycles so don't be too hard on yourself!

Maybe you're just too distracted with life in general to feel the same you felt last time. I hope your next appointment revels great news for you!

Every pregnancy is different, every kid is different, I think it is reasonable to expect IVF cycles to be different. I will be looking for your next update! I am so glad you blog this so I can keep up with whats going on. I am SO excited for you guys!!
