I'm Ready

Posted by tjluvbug , 04 October 2011 · 994 views

So DH and I are now into day 4 of the stimulation phase of our cycle and we are trying to be so optimistic and positive about it. It has been two years since our last cycle and I kept putting it off (all the while blaming circumstance or money) because I wasn't sure if i was ready to go through it again emotionally, especially if it didn't work again.

DH has been so much more supportive than the last cycle, he's being sweet and thoughtful, helping around the house, and sending me sweet little texts telling me he loves me. It means so much to me that he is even willing to go through this again with me. He's always been fantastic with kids but never thought much about having them until I came a long. He's the kind of guy who will just reach out his arms to hold a friends baby and whenever I see him with a baby in his arms I know that I AM ready to go through this again even if the little nagging fears are still there in the back of my mind.

Today I had my first blood work and I found myself wanting to ask so many more questions than I ever did with the first cycle. Unfortunately the nurse from the clinic called to give me my results when I was in a meeting and she left me a message but didn't include my E2 level. I called back and left her a message asking for the E2 number but she didn't, her next message only repeated her first message....ugh! I figure I could wait until my next b/w on Friday and ask for both E2 levels then but I really want to know now!. This is what my life has come down to, NUMBERS! hormone levels, number of follicles, dosage of meds, more hormone levels, more follicles...number of eggs retrieved, number of eggs fertilized, number of embryos transferred and the list goes on.

I didn't belong to this site with the first cycle and I feel much more supported this time around not only by DH but also by everyone else going through the same or similar situations. It is amazingly helpful. Thanks to all.




I'm so glad to hear that your DH is being more sensitive and supportive this time around - it makes such a big difference. Sending you all kinds of good and positive vibes!
TJ, just wanted to wish you lots of luck. I'm hoping & praying for you. Glad to hear you're feeling so much more positive this time around. Keeping you in my thoughts and wishing this will be it for you. Hugs.
