It has started!

Posted by Marvic , 07 February 2012 · 710 views

Well it's official!!!! We have started our medication and there is no turning back now. I don't WANT to turn back. I want to power on full steam ahead! I'm optimistic, excited and ready to do this thing. Well which thing exactly.....??? I'm ready to have a child. I'm ready to start our family. I'm not ready for failure... I will deal with it as it comes I suppose. Are you ever ready for failure? I think not. We go into this with optimism as I stated and hope for the future. What if it does not work?? I just don't think I want to go THERE. Not yet. Not for a while yet please!

I began the Suprefact at 6am and it was not so bad. I thought it would taste bad, I read somewhere it could? Well I guess that's what you get for reading and thinking its the truth. I need some salt grains with my reading material I guess!

Last night hubs and I went to the bookstore. I really wanted baby books. Is it wrong? I'm not sure. I don't want to go through this process thinking I will fail. I want to be positive and put it to the universe that I will be successful and let the chips fall as they may. I am a big believer in the power of positive thinking. I also believe that if you tell yourself it will fail the it WILL fail. We can guide things to the positive! So I did... I bought three books. I got a day by day pregnancy book , "Pregnancy day by day", Canadian edition. I got "Healthy Beginnings", which is great for right now... It's got good nutritional info and basic preconception info, no its not geared to infertility in any way but it does have info on multiples. My third book is Canadian Medical Association Complete Book Of Mother and Baby Care". I liked that it was endorsed by the CMA. I looked at "what to expect when you're expecting" and I was not impressed with how it was laid out. I like pictures and diagrams. I'm a visual learner.

I got two apps for my iPhone as well. I got baby bump a decently rated pregnancy day by day app and IVitro an app for IVF tracking. It seems to be a good one. I can put in how many cycles I go through and the meds I take, my appointments and there is room to take notes! Lots of good useful tools.
I really hope I'm not too early on the books. I think if I was TTC without interventions I'd be buying them now? I think?? We have never been in this situation. Knowing you need IVF before you ever TTC I think makes the TTC process a bit easier. Not sure as I don't know the other side of it. I have heard people say that knowing they needed IVF after TTC for years took a lot of pressure off the couple! One person stated that they could stop the blame game and be a couple again! Strength in numbers!! We need our partners in this process. I could not imagine doing this alone!!

Well I guess what I'm saying is I'm preparing my brain for a baby... Trying to learn about pregnancy and all entailed. I find great IVF info online and I believe it's more up to date than a book so I hope my knowledge gap is covered! I do love to learn!! So let the learning curve begin! Let it all begin, I pray for success, I believe it will be a success!! Fingers still crossed! Let the preparations begin.. The early ones... I'm not going to get ahead of myself here!!!! One day at a time!!!

Hugs and prayers for a very Happy Tuesday!

I think it's so important for optimism through all of this, without it, what's the point right?
