I did it, I didnt think I could but I was abble to inject my self! Not once but twice now!
So here is where we are:
Took Provera for 10 days starting on October 15th
AF showed on November 1st
On November 3rd I went in for my first visit with Ultra sound and blood draw. This was so gross in that I was in the middle of full flow!! ICK!!! any way... the lining was at 5mm (she said I had a bit more bleeding to go) then she drew some blood. I got a call in the afternoon, she said that my estrogen levels were at 37 which she said was Fabulous! This made me feel a bit better.
Well last night we did the first injection... Omg I was so scared that I was going to screw it up! Anyway we were able to get it together and I shot my self!
Enter in the weird side effects. With in 5 min. I couldnt focus, with in 20 min I was feeling queezy so I went to bed. I woke up this morning and it hurt to move. I could feel the swelling in my ovaries. that lasted until this afternoon when I ate some salty foods…
Today could possibly be the first day of the rest of my life, so here is hoping!
I had an appointment today for training on how to give the injections, which yes I will be giving to myself!! In this discussion we went over the following things:
• I have to stop ALL exercise. (The reason for this being that with this super stimulation cycle my ovaries will grow and swell and will lift up against my pelvis. So if I go jogging, dancing, and any activity really my ovaries could rupture! It’s hard enough for me to get pregnant as it is, I don’t need to lose an ovary and cut my slim chances in half.)
• I will more than likely find out that if I am pregnant over the thanks giving holiday (This being that I have started the provera today. I will take this for the next 10 days, then about 3-5 days later my period will show up. Now for the gross part! On day 3 of my period I will go in for a vaginal ultrasound and blood work to check my estrogen levels. Now I believe on that day I will start on…
How do you get where you are going?
This sounds like a simple enough question, but amazingly enough it’s not a simple question at all.
This week DH and I decided that it is time to head back to the RE (Reproductive Endocrinologist). This in turn has made me do a little soul searching and reflecting on the past few years. For instance what has led us to this decision and how did we get here? Well if you will humor me I will attempt a brief rundown of what has led us here.
Let’s start at the beginning December 1997, I was 16 going on 17 (and now I digress in to a little music from the Sound of Music) and I met my husband, being the only girl in an all boy computer class. I was a junior in High School and he was a senior. He was clearly the brains in the class and was kind enough to let me cheat off of him because I had no fricken clue what I was doing. Fast forward to the end of that school year, Nick and I were still going strong, and had joked about kids and marriage and all of that. …
Tip#7: Do what your mother tells you: Hold each other’s hand while crossing the street and for goodness sakes, put on a fresh pair of clean underwear just in case you were to get hit by mob of screaming fans that would tear off your clothes.

Atlanta GAMay 27-30, 2009
Well this one was a planed yet unplanned trip. I booked my flight about a month ago to go and see my favorite band of all time New Kids on the Block and my aunt who lives there as well. I got a great deal at $160.oo for a round trip ticket from Cincy to ATL. Well about a week ago I find out that they have pushed the date back a week. So I tried to move my ticket to the next week to find out that it will cost $150.00 to change the ticket. Which I am not paying!! SOOOO... I am heading to have a nice weekend with my aunt head to the zoo and do some other fun things!! I think it will be fun, I haven't see her since December. I will try to blog and I know I will be twittering!

I want to be on this boat... sort of... from what I hear the crazies have already been in full force but damn.. look at those 5 pieces of Man Meat!!!! HOLY HELL!!!!
As I am sure you can tell from the last post on here the IUI did not take. :( It appears as though I have a naturally thin lining. So the clomid I took with the last IUI just made it even thinner. SOOO... we were told that we would have to move on to injections :( with brings the out of pocket cost to $3000.00 a month... OUCH!!! So we went on hold for a while and have been there for a bit. I went off on my New Kids on the Block adventures... check out PLAID GIRL for more on those adventures!!! These Adventures will be over for the time being in June... Nick and I hope to get a home equity loan to fix up the house and then to move on to the $3000.00 a month... YIKES!! So it may be another year but I am slowly becoming ok with that. :) More to come!
So here I sit in a faculty meeting, and it never fails to amaze me, the amount of stupidity that thrives in the world of acidemia! We have sat and discussed the wording of 1 sentence for 15 min. Now I don't know what is worse: 1. That we have 24 grown women who can't agree on the wording of one sentence 2. That we live in a world that has to be SO exact that we worry this much about it.
