Thank you so much everyone, for being so supportive. I believe your prayers and positive thoughts have made a big difference. I must have thanked God about a hundred times yesterday, too. I know this doesn’t guarantee that it will work, but I feel so grateful to have a chance. I have hope. This is a huge difference from my first IVF attempt.
We were both nervous about my first follie check. I called Andy yesterday to tell him the news, and he sounded apprehensive before I could say anything. Then I told him the good news, and he was extremely excited! We hardly ever get good news, so it came as a shock!
I feel so good at the moment. I know I’ll be more nervous when ER/ET comes. But for now, I am totally zen. Of course I realize all of the things that can go wrong, and I’m very realistic. However, while I have this hope, I’m going to have faith that
we might we WILL get pregnant.
A couple strange things happened yesterday. I’m not sure if you believe in these kind of “signs”, but they were enough to get my attention and give me chills.
My BFF, that now lives in Arizona, happened to call on my way home from my appt yesterday. I actually hadn’t talked to her for a couple weeks, so she didn’t know we had started the IVF process. The reason she called was because she said she woke up thinking of me. Something in her heart told her to pray for me. Then she logged onto Facebook and saw my post about having a lucky day, so she called me to see what was going on. She had no idea it was an important day for me, until I told her about my follie check!
I called my mom yesterday to tell her the news, as well. She didn’t know we had started yet either. She said she had been thinking of me on New Year’s day (the day I started my meds)! My mom reported having a very strong feeling come over her that day, that 2011 was going to be our year! My mom has had some pretty uncanny intuitions before, so I hope she is right this time, too!
In other news…The nurse called with my E2 results from yesterday. Almost 700, which is spot on for having 7 follies + a couple little ones! They decided to reduce my Follistim from 325 to 300, and start me on Ganirelix today instead of tomorrow. Ganirelix will keep me from ovulating too soon. The Menopur that I start tomorrow, will help make my follies get plump and juicy 🙂
Secretly, I’m hoping for just a couple more follies on Monday…BUT I am not going to get greedy. I am very thankful to have 7. Someone like myself, with DOR/POF and egg/ovary issues, can’t be too picky. 🙂
