I'm partially doing this post for my own sanity, so I can just WRITE OUT everything and get it out of my system. Ok who am I kidding, it will never get out of my system -- but I'm so excited to share!
Ever since we decided to jump head first into pursuing IVF, I have been beside myself. I'm terribly excited, nervous, anxious, and mostly, have a MILLION questions. Since I follow so many lovely ladies on Instagram who are involved in IVF or TTC in some way, it seems like everyone has a different story, process, and outcome. From the payment method (some had insurance coverage, some pay out of pocket, like us), the preliminary steps necessary to start, to the medications they take, everyone's experience varied greatly.
Needless to say, I wanted to know what our process would be, specifically. I felt like I had more questions than answers, so I set out to get answers!
1) Eric and I must attend the "IVF Seminar" -- scheduled for next Wednesday at 7PM.
Even though we still have a couple months to go, I see the "end in sight", so to speak. I'm confident in our clinic, in this process, and in my ability to overcome any obstacles that arise. OH - a little cool side note! The other day Eric responded to a call at an OBGYN office in his area. He and the doctor were talking (about kids, what else!) and Eric told the doc that we were doing IVF. The doctor asked where we were going, so Eric told him the Center for Repoductive Medicine in Orlando. This doctor said that clinic is known as one of the BEST in the NATION. He said their Embryologist is the best there is around. Just more great news (also gave my hubs a boost of confidence in this process!)!!
Thanks for the prayers, positive thoughts, and words of advice! We are not planning to try another cycle if this month is negative, because I want to give my body some time off (also save some money) and eat healthy, work out, and just get ready for THE BIG EVENT! :-)
