Well, today we start the roller coaster that is IVF#1. Had my baseline ultrasound and blood work done this morning; lots of antral follicles, and I should get my blood work results in an hour or so. All my meds have been ordered, but I still don't know how to give myself a shot. I'm sure we'll figure it out!
So, to celebrate, the husband and I have decided to go to Orlando this weekend to ride some less metaphorical roller coasters. It's been ages since we've done this, and we thought one last hurrah was in order before we get knee deep in syringes and out-of-control hormones.
Every time we've gone to Orlando over the last three years I've thought to myself, "I wonder if this is the last time I get to go before I get knocked up?" Well, this time I'm really, really, really hoping these are the last of my roller coasters for a while. Both kinds -- the ones where your body and your heart need seat belts.
I'm ready to get on that ride that involves dirty diapers, new baby smell and a beautiful little life to call our own.
