Baseline appt and first shot — The Bump
TTC after 35

Baseline appt and first shot

Went to my baseline appt to get everything started for IVF.  No cysts, so cleared to start this cycle.  Great news - my AMH actually went up this year from 4.7 to 5.0. 

I thought DH was going to pass out watching the shots lesson, but he did pretty well.  When we got home and I did my first Lupron shot, he hid in the closet and just yelled encouragement.  He told me he wanted to be as supportive as possible.  :)

  • Yeah for passing baseline and being cleared to start!!  Sorry about YH, at least he was trying to be supportive.  I've learned to not even tell my husband when I need to do shots, as he worries way to much about how much it hurts, like's he's getting them or something! lol

  • Yay, that's great you have been cleared to start!  Luckily my dh jumped right in one night when giving myself shots became unbearable.  Maybe yours will come around and won't be so intimidated by the needles.  It sounds like you're having no problem on your own though!

  • Lilbuddy, that was so funny.  I haven't started my IVF yet, but that is exactly what will probably happen at my house, too.  You show him who wears the cape in the family...Lol. 

    Best of luck and would be interested in hearing more about the process.
