This is actually my 2nd attempt at this because I mixed up 2 of the hormones back in May. I was very distraught at the time (just ask the poor nurse who I was crying to on the phone last month!), but this round is already going smoother, so I know it's all for the best that we were delayed a month.
For the curious, all of these special IVF/Surrogacy medications come via a mail-order pharmacy (Walgreens). Natalie and I both got all our prescriptions delivered to our door. I guess our local Spring Hill pharmacy doesn't carry all this stuff! LOL!
Now, the goal is to get my body ready for the big embryo transfer day on June 24th!!! After June 24th, I have to take it easy for 2 days, and then my understanding is that after 12 days, I will go back for a test to confirm pregnancy! I already know those are going to be the LOOOONGEST 12 days ever for me, but also for Adam & Natalie and probably Eli too!
I will go back in on June 16th for more blood work and another ultrasound to see how everything is progressing. After that, I will start adding additional hormones to my regiment.
So far, I'm feeling just fine. I've had some headaches, but I'm attributing that to being a little worn out from a big fun weekend we just had in Iowa to see some friends (Eli's work partner & her now husband) get married! Our kiddos partied hard and we had a pool in our hotel so we went swimming at least 4 times in 2 days!
