In search of a baby ug

I'm 38 and my caveman 45. We have been together for 8 years and in search of a baby ug for 6+ years. We had no idea when we began to this journey for our baby ug that the road that we would venture down would be so difficult. We are cursed with unexplained secondary infertility. After 6 early miscarriages-- and two ectopics complete with tube removal and 2 failed IUI's, we are starting IVF #1.

Finally some good news

7 embies have made it to day 3 and Dr. G says he wants to take them to blast so transfer is re-scheduled for saturday. The bad news is that now I have to go back to work. Boo! Is

"my ass hurts from the pio shots" a good enough excuse to stay home? I wish!

Oh well....back to the grindstone.

My eggs are plucked

So Dr. D "plucked" my eggs on Sunday. Yes, "plucked" is the technical medical term that he used. 17 of them and 8 fertilised. Transfer is wednesday. I am still a little sore and tender. The PIO shots were not as bad as I expected however there does seem to be a bit of soreness/bruising at the site the next day. I am just glad it isn't as bad as I thought. I went to the pharmacy and got 25 gage needles and I think that is the trick. Well I am wishing all you ladies peace and luck and I will be back Monday.

Lucky Number 10

I went in to Dr G today for the vampire crew and dildocam...10 follicles between 12 and 15. Yay! Looks like retrieval will be later this week.

Interesting how showing my lady bits to what seems like hundreds of strangers over the last 5 years has changed me. I asked for a cover because the nurse forgot to leave me one but when the nurse fininshed the ultrasound I jumped off the table to dress before she left the room. Also last week at acupuncture I removed my undies...luckily for my acupuncturist I remembered to put them back on.

Well gotta run to a meeting....ugh.

I suck.....

Sorry I suck at keeping up...

It has been super busy at work. It is day 8 of stims here and for now I am on 5 units of Lupron, 300 gonal-f and 75 repronex. There seems to be a lot of twinging etc in the belly area for the past few days. I saw Dr. D yesterday....I so don't care for him. He only said there were lots of follicles but they weren't very big yet and that was ok. I go back saturday...which is good.

I am not sharing this with grandaddy (since his bitch wife decided to email my whole family and hers too and i don't even know them... to tell them about my last ectopic and tube removal in an effort to get sympathy for herself...I hate her) we are having a big father's day lunch on saturday. I was worried the retrieval might be then and I would have to lie to get out of it.

Anyway I will check back in on Monday when i have more to say. I must get to work on the eight million things i have to do.

Happy weekend :)
