Meeting with the Nurse

We were thankfully and graciously given this opportunity to embark on the IVF journey of a lifetime. I know that sounds a bit cliche but its very true. The journey is an expensive one, and by God's miracle and grace (and angels on earth) we were given the chance.

So, with that we met with our Nurse Coordinator. She follows us through the whole process. She is our "go-to" gal. Her name is Judy. She is an older women, but sassy. We love her! It was good meeting with her and getting to know her. After all, she is part of this miracle. She teaches us the do's and don'ts, the must have and have not's.

So she went over the medication we needed to order and how to actually "inject" the meds. Most of which we knew from having done the IUI cycles, but still informative. We also scheduled my recommended Hystercopy

I had the HSC done on Aug. 13th.  They gave me a shot for pain, some valium and vicodin. But the procedure was still painful. They basically shoot a liquid into your uterus to make sure "all looks okay in there". Well my uterus didnt like that very much. Which they say is common, but still didnt keep the tears at bay.

I am so fortune to have a husband that is there with me, holding my hand, every step of the way. He attends every class, every appointment, every ultrasound. I am one lucky lady!

Just a note that portions of this blog may be graphic. This has been a long journey, and keeping a detailed record is important to us. So if you are queasy, there may be parts you need to skip over. Also, any decisions regarding our children, the pregnancy, parenting ideas, are something that we consider carefully. If we decide to share them on the blog, please be cautious of criticism. We fully intend to research ideas thoroughly that we are thinking about.
We are excited to share this wonderful journey and welcome you along for the ride!!

Thanks! :)
