Transfer on Tuesday

The cycle of IVF has been going really well so far. Having a frozen embryo cycle is much easier than the precious fresh cycle. All I have done this week is blood tests every morning and an ultrasound to confirm I am ovulating.

I got a phone call from the RE's office to confirm that the transfer is on Tuesday.

I'm really nervous, excited, scared and hopeful.

Life has been so busy that I haven't had much of a chance to dwell on the IVF stuff. I feel pretty calm about it right now.

So - bring on the transfer on Tuesday!

Bloods start tomorrow

Tomorrow is Day 11, and I start bloods. I'll probably have blood tests for a couple of days and the frozen transfer will be in about a week.

I'm feeling pretty good about everything at the moment. I'm just trying to enjoy every day with my husband while he's here. In fact, I've been feeling so relaxed about IVF that I almost forgot that my bloods start tomorrow!

We've just had a LOT going on this month. Preparing for my husband's deployment has been keeping me very busy. Our little 16 month old daughter is also a very active little lady. I've been a bit worried about how I will cope with her 24/7 for six months while my husband is away. I'm going to look into getting her into some sort of care one day a week so I can have some time to myself when my husband leaves.

I'll keep posting - mainly so I can keep track of everything going on this month!

IVF is a-go!

We've made the big decision that we're starting IVF this month! I'm really excited to be back on the bandwagon again, but also a little nervous.

This time around I don't feel the need to tell everyone about doing IVF. I will post our progress here, and will also tell close family and some selected friends.

I guess I just want to live life as usual and have the frozen embryo transfer in about 2 weeks time. Yikes!!!!!!!
