I got my meds in the mail yesterday. Oh my! I have four packs of Follistim! The doctor wants me to take 300 per shot this time! I hope I don't end up with OHSS from this. It is supposed to hopefully stimulate more follicles to grow. I didn't make a lot last time, but my doctor is hoping for more healthy ones to grow. I also have azythromycin, progesterone, ovidrel, lupron, a ton of needles, a sharps container, prenatal vitamins (vitofol pn), and a follistim pen. Apparently they forgot the doxycyclene for both me and Jason to take. My RE nurse is not too pleased about that since I have to take that very soon.
I look at all that stuff and it just reminds me of how much I have to go through just for the hopes of carrying a baby full term of my own. On the other hand, despite how hard it is to look at all that stuff and know what I have to go through, it's just one step closer to having my wish come true.
I'm not against adoption at all. It just kind of saddens me to know that after this 'shot' at IVF, if it doesn't work, I need to look at adoption. I think I'll be looking at a newborn adoption. Most likely an open adoption. We figure, there's a good chance that even if this IVF does work...but only one baby come out of this, then we'll probably go for adoption anyhow. Unless I have frozens. We'll try that first, but adoption is definitely not out of the question.
There I go again! overthinking things! It's time for me to focus on what's going on now. Right now, it's two more weeks of BCP! It's getting closer!

Yay for getting the meds! They havent even ordered mine yet! We go into tomorrow to sign the consent forms again then in two weeks I'll get to start lupron
I overthink things too..I always think of 2 or 3 backup plans LOL. This might be our last cycle too. Unless we use donor eggs from my friend and donor sperm then we might attempt another cycle in a couple of years. Otherwise we are going to look into embryo adoption or just regular adoption but we will do international.
I think that "over" thinking is definitely part of dealing w/ infertility issues. No doubt about it. You always have to be 1 step ahead, right? I mean I was even thinking, "What next if IVF doesn't work?" It is really hard but you have to think of the other options out there just in case. I freaked out when I got my meds too. WAY TOO MUCH but all worth it!
