It's Go Time — The Bump
Secondary IF

It's Go Time

So yesterday was day 1 of my IVF cycle.  I woke DH up, then had that thought… hmmm something is going on down there. Ran into the bathroom, AF showed up first thing yesterday morning and man was she pissed.  Throwing things and having a tantrum.  Got myself together and came out.  I told DH ‘It’s go time’ we are officially day 1 of our IVF cycle.  In true man fashion he high-fived me.

Today I had my baseline blood work and ultrasound, and I just got the phone call that we are a go to start my shots.   I am super nervous about starting the shots, but glad that our first day is on a Saturday so that we have two days to figure it out. I am doing one in the morning and one at night.   DH will be giving them, so hopefully he is kind. (The shots will be Menopur  in the am and Follistim in the pm)

I am so thankful I stumbled onto this board and found you wonderful ladies. 

Retrieval is tentatively set for 10/09.  (Holy shit! It's go time!)

  • Just a tiny update. First shot about 1/2 an hour ago. I'm a huge scaredy cat about watching needles go in so I couldn't watch but it was pretty smooth. It was over before I knew it. It does burn a little bit and still does a bit under the skin.
    THANK YOU ALL for the well wishes. You all mean more to me than you will ever know. Hope everyone has a good weekend. Time for me to watch Criminal Minds before the start to the rest of my weekend.


  • Good luck! I am glad the first shot is done and went well. First one is the hardest I hear. Keep us updated!

  • Follistim shot tonight was a bit intimidating however I hardly felt it. It feels annoying now at the injection site. The weird thing was I felt the taste of the medicine in my mouth. Faint but I swear it was there.

    Cheers to getting through IVF CD 3 and day first day of shots!


  • Awesome! I'm glad the shots weren't too bad.

  • I was also super scared for my first night of shots since DH had always given me my trigger shots in the past. I was determined to do them on my own and I was so glad that I did, I think it hurt less. I was actually excited to do them each night because I felt so proud of myself afterwards.

    Good luck with everything, keep us posted!
