How to Walk Away

Posted by Aja , 17 September 2009 · 4017 views

I am so depressed today.  It has been 3 weeks since my BFN and I am still not recovered.  I felt it as a total loss and every second of every day I think about it.  I can't really think of anything else.  My follow-up appointment wasn't exactly what I wanted to hear.  He used the word "challenging" a LOT, also "poor egg quality" an...


ER and after

Posted by Aja , 14 August 2009 · 1365 views

On Tuesday I had my ER.  Not the most pleasant thing in the world.  Yikes almighty that was painful.  That tricky left ovary shoved up behind my uterus, embedded in the abdominal cavity and covered with endometriosis extremely painful but ta da they did it!  I am so glad because that meant between both ovaries, I got 7 eggs.  Hardly record breaking, b...

You know how sometimes things are so obvious that you don't even notice them.  Like time.  I've been away from the IF world for 6 years after conceiving my son.  Before that, 5 years of my life were totally immersed in it.  Trying everything under the sun, moon and the stars, every drug, every procedure.  Finally a successful round of IVF/ICSI.  T...

Lupron - the new evil

Posted by Aja , 22 July 2009 · 1301 views

OK, I thought Marvelon was bad.  The severe headaches and nausea that lasted the full time I was on that bcp was nothing, and I mean nothing compared to Lupron.  What was I thinking complaining about a little headache and nausea?  I should have know better.  I guess it is payback time.I am sooooo miserable.  I've only had 4 shots so far and I don'...


Consult with RE - Good News/Bad News

Posted by Aja , 17 July 2009 · 884 views

I'm getting all ready to start Lupron injections tomorrow and paid $7800 to the clinic today for the IVF/ICSI cycle.  Very nervous and very excited all in one.  Then I spoke to the doctor.  Now I'm very excited and very nervous all in one all over again.Good news first:  My husband produced his best sample ever!  He got 4 Million!  Am...

I'm feeling so very moody today.  I think it is the bcp.  I have been taking Marvelon for 13 days now and I am still feeling nauseous and now extremely moody.  It feels like a really bad period coming but obviously that is not the case.  Yesterday I was so excited about this journey, feeling so positive, but now so tired and moody.  I think that the i...
