The Waiting is the Hardest Part…

Just an update on my IVF progress…

I should be starting BCP around the beginning to mid Sept! So that would put us at being pregnant 😉 by the end of October…if not sooner depending on how everything goes. Exercise, diet, etc going well! I feel really motivated, and it’s my 3rd week in! We are still trying naturally at the moment.

Supplements I am taking:
DHEA 25 mg 3x daily (recommended by RE)

Cycle 18 – BFN

I got my hopes up pretty high this time, so I was crushed when this cycle didn’t work out. This was our last medicated cycle before IVF in 2 months. I’m not even sure that I ovulated the other 2 natural cycles that we did previous to Cycle 18. That makes me doubtful that we’ll have any chance to conceive before IVF. I would have really liked to save all the money we’ll be spending on that. Not to mention how invasive and time consuming the whole process is. It will totally be worth it if it works, but it’s so scary. It might not work!! And this is like a last resort kind of thing. I really need something to happen or I fear that I’ll lose all hope.
