Today I tested again. BFN. They say not to test until the next day after your missed period. It is soo hard to wait! I am having some cramping. And I have been extremely tired! I am sure it is nothing. The Mr. and I went on a hike and I could barely make it up the hill - I had to stop to rest. That is not usual for me, but I just figured I was out of shape. 3 more days...

The waiting is the worst!! I actually tested today. It was negative. It is still early. I am cramping some, but I am trying to to make up symptoms. One more week...

We have follicles!

The Mr. and I had a GREAT time this past weekend! We needed to get away! I struggled with the injections every night - it really hurt that second time. The other ones didn't hurt, but it is just intimidating to stick yourself with a needle!

Today I went in to the Dr to see if the injections worked. They did bloodwork, and then I had my ultrasound. On the ultrasound there were 2 follicles!!! The nurse kept saying, "this looks soo good!!!" I left and waited for them to call me about my bloodwork.

This afternoon they called and said, TRIGGER!!! I took an Orvidril shot that is supposed to trigger ovulation. I am sooo excited!!! This could actually be my first 2 week waiting!! I could actually have a shot at getting pregnant!! I am beyond excited!

Out of town

The Mr. and I are going out of town for a long weekend. He is on his way home now and we are gong to leave. My first injection yesterday wasn't too bad. I just did it real fast so I couldn't think about it! Tonight, it hurt SOO bad!! I think I went too low! But now I am terrified to do them again!

This really sucks. There is no other word for it. It frusturates me so bad that some people that don't even want to be parents, get pregnant in no time, but those of us that really really want to be parents can't. I know this is in God's plan, and I know in the end He will be glorified through this. I just have to keep reminding myself that!

We're off!!

Well a couple days ago the Dr called and said that they wanted to start me on the lowest dose of injections. Oh geez! Scary stuff. It was amazing how organized they are! They said they would get everything ordered and I would have it in the mail the next day. So, the next day (yesterday) I had a box waiting for me when I came home for lunch. Here is what was inside:

This is very intimidating to me!!

Today I went in to the Dr for training. They showed me how to mix the injections and then how to inject myself in the tummy. I start tonight!

The Dr called in a prescription for Metformin. This medicine is used a lot for women with PCOS, I think it is supposed to help with diabetes. I have to take 1 pill at night for 2 weeks, then take 2 pills a night. It can cause an upset stomach, so I have to ease into it.
