Today I called to make my first official IVF appointment. Ready or not here we go…..
After a long 6 month wait I don’t know whether to be nervous or excited! I was so thankful to have a friendly nurse, one who didn’t scold me for her not knowing what was going on but rolled with the punches and helped me to work on the timing of my cycle. So here is what I know; I will go in on the 22nd for my pregnancy test/blood work. Immediately following I will start Provera (7 days) followed by three weeks of birth control. This will bring me up to my next appointment on January 24 (yay for Saturday appointments…oh and also that is my husband and I’s dating anniversary (no we don’t celebrate but worth noting for a lucky first cycle) it will be 9 years)! And then the fun really begins….shots shots shots EVERYBODY (am I the only one who thinks of that song every time someone says shots?)!!
Somewhere in there they will want me to come in, talk things through with the nurses and most importantly pay up. So a few things needs to happen in the next month, saving being the number one priority (yea good luck with Christmas!!)!
Shits getting real and I’m not sure how to feel. Part of me is more than ready and confident (giddy even), the other part nervously contemplating the “what ifs.” I know, I know I can’t do that but I only have so much control over my brain….
So until that initial appointment I have a bridal shower, girls night, grooms dinner, wedding, another wedding and Christmas on top of full work weeks…yup I think I will be plenty occupied for the next few weeks.
