Day 5, and the energy is being sucked out of me...

So, today is day 5 of the stiming process for IVF. I had my first monoitoring appointment yesterday and I went in again today. Already, at this point in the process, I think I'm feeling it. Last time, I wasn't tired like this and there also wasn't anything to see at this point. Yesterday I had about 20 small follies. This morning, there were 4 the were mesurable on my right side, and I had 8 that were mesurable on my left side. Still early though, and at any point some of the smaller ones on either side could catch up. I'm still waiting on my afternoon call from the doctor's office to see if they want to change up my meds and when I'll be in again. But most likely, from this point on, I'll be in the office everyday until I'm ready to trigger.

Right now, I'm so scared to admit this, but this is the first time in well over a year that I have been pretty excited for the possibility of becoming pregnant again. With the hopes that this one will stick and I'll be able to have a healthy beautiful child. 

This. is. so. scary. but. so. exciting.

It's nice to have hope once again, it's nice to feel like this could actually happen.

Please pray it does. I know I am.


I just recieved my afternoon call from the doctor's office. Tonight I add a 3rd injection to the current 2 in my evening round of injects. I begin the ganarelix. This will help prevent permature ovulation of the follies that are growing. You can learn more here. I also actually get tomorrow off from visiting the office, and I go back in on Thursady.  The rest of my medications all stay the same.


  1. We will be praying for great progress!!

  2. Will be keeping my fingers crossed!!
