Reality Check

Nearly ready for the egg collection, but now I'm thinking 'what the hell am I doing' 
Reality has hit me and I have for some growing up to do!

Feeling it..

I am feeling the side effects of the drugs. Headache, cramps, poor concentration, forgetfulness. Not that my memory was any good before but it is much worse now. 
First scan booked for 2 weeks time. I must remember to get more needles and buserelin.

Note To Self:

Do not hold the needle at the tip, hold it at the end so it's flimsy and goes in really light. It's less painful & hardly leaves a mark.

My New Best Friend :)

4th day and I must say I am quite getting used to it. I no longer have 'the fear' of the injection and have tried everywhere possible I can Inject it and its all the same really. 
No bruising (yet) like I thought there was gonna be, I can hardly see the pin hole where it entered my skin.
I wish I could just inject the whole lot in one day instead of having to wait untill the next day for my next fix.

Just a little scratch...

First injection today & actually it wasn't as bad as I anticipated..
The needle was much finer than I thought and just glided into my skin which has left a little mark. 
The medication, on the other hand, made me feel really light headed as it travelled through my body.
I've gotta get used to it I suppose.

What does it mean?

Day 3 after finishing the tablets, no period. I can't remember how long I waited last time? 

I do on the other hand have a major cramp in my arm! :,( not sure If its anything to do with what's going on, I've had it for 2 days, along with a bad headache.

...and so it begins

If you are reading this, Welcome!

This is just something im doing for myself on my incredible emotional journey of having my first IVF cycle. I wanted to keep note of every feeling, every worry and keep track of the steps so that in 9 months time i can look back and see that it was all worth it.

Ive been with hubby for 10 years and we have never fallen pregnant. I was diagnosed with PCOS when i was about 18 but never done anything about it. I was told that if i wanted a baby i would need medical help and to come back when the time comes. So, at 26 i decide i want to have a baby before my body gives up completely and i miss my chance. The Hospital have offered me IVF ICSI and im gonna take it!

Right so, ive started the Provera on 17th June 2013. This will force my body to bleed, then i can start injecting.. eek!! (i am so not looking forward to it!)
