oh, how the time, she flies!

Posted by DeeJay , 25 November 2010 · 817 views

I canít believe Iím in the throes of another cycle. It seemed to have crept up on me so fast, and has so far has flown by. I guess it just seems faster this time.Itís been a difficult last few months since I had my semi failed cycle. I still donít know what to call it. In the IVF world, when you say Ďchemical pregnancyí, people immediately understand. Yes...

Musings.

The term "Self loathing" is looking really real to me right now.I know all I have to do to look better is to work out. I don't mind working out so I think I'm just lazy. Not working out is making me squishy and making me hate myself.I know that if I was in a little better shape I would have a healthier pregnancy.I'm terrified of not be...

The irony of it all

Posted by DeeJay , 19 August 2010 · 1113 views

How ironic that the day I stop bleeding is the day I find out we had a chemical pregnancy. The last 2 weeks have been not fun to say the least. The analogy of a rollercoaster is often used in this process, and really is accurate. The process stimming, ER and ET is like the long steep ascent to the top of the first big hill, full of optimism, excitement an...

Beta Day

Posted by DeeJay , 12 August 2010 · 1081 views

So much has happened since my last post, and it's only been a few days! I've been keeping up to date with status updates and in my clinic and cycle buddy threads, but when it comes to committing my thoughts on what's going on, my mind shuts off (surely a defense mechanism). Basically what it boils down to is I started bleeding Sunday, and...

Waiting is the hardest part of this process!

Posted by DeeJay , 07 August 2010 · 933 views

Itís been 8 days since the transfer. Iíve had no problems with hyperstimulation, no symptoms, except a dull ache in my nether regions thatís been pretty constant. I donít know whatís going on down there. Today is Saturday and I go for my blood test on Wednesday. 4 more days. The waiting is horrible. I havenít had any spotting or blood at all. Did it work?...

The face of infertility

Posted by DeeJay , 20 July 2010 · 696 views

It's crazy the emotions us infertiles go through in the pursuit for children, particularly the IVF roller coaster. I saw this stark contrast yesterday while I was in for my scan, literally in the space of about 2 minutes. As I was leaving my appointment with my RE, a happy enough meeting -as I now have 6 follicles - I ran into a couple who looked as t...

Stimming is the life for me

Posted by DeeJay , 17 July 2010 · 507 views

I swear I'm turning into a pincushion. Not the most pleasant thing, injecting yourself multiple times a day. Most of the injections are fine, I'm not one of those faint-at-the-sight-of-needles kind of girl. Injecting myself is a new twist though! Not a big fan of the repronex. The manual mixing of liquid into powder has a LOT of room for error...

Patches and Pills and injectables oh my!

Posted by DeeJay , 03 July 2010 · 672 views

I got my kit with the first part of my pills the other day. Uh, wow. A little overwhelming when you lay it all out like that. Funny all the different ways $2500 looks like. This time it looked like this: http://farm5.static....c96ebca7c_z.jpg I start my patches on Wednesday, and my injections on Thursday. At least I don't...

Beta day

Posted by DeeJay , 29 November 1999 · 426 views

Well there is good news and bad news. The good news is it's positive! The not so good news is, first, I'm still bleeding, and second, the beta number is low, 25.6. The nurse was careful not to give away too much (again), saying it's not the number that's important, but the fact that it doubles at the next beta, which they want me in fo...
