Oh my. For the past 2 months I’ve had the date June 23rd in my mind. That’s the day of my first monitoring appointment and the beginning of my stims. Except now it’s not. After being on birth control pills for 6 weeks I guess my body couldn’t handle it anymore. I started my period this morning and called my nurse in a panic. She said it was fine and we made plans to move my ultrasound to tomorrow morning. That means my stims will probably start tomorrow.
Last time I did IVF it was all new and confusing and I didn’t keep track of anything. All I know is that I gained 10 pounds in the 2 weeks of stimming. This time my plan is to write on the blog everyday. I’ll share my medications, how I’m feeling, my weight, and my waist size. Yep, I’m sharing it all.
So, today was my last day of birth control pills even though they aren’t working anymore. My current weight is 131.6 pounds. My waist size is 29.5 inches.
I have to say I’m scared. I’m really worried, not about myself, but that we won’t get many eggs. I think I’m setting the bar too high since last summer they retrieved 22 eggs. Only 17 were mature and only 10 were fertilized and only 3 made it to day 5, but still, 22 is a lot of eggs. This time I don’t think it’s going to happen. With an AMH of .26 and an FSH over 14. I’m not sure I’m going to get many and if I do, I’m not sure they’ll be good.
I’m worried about freezing my embryos and waiting for PGD and transfer. I’m considering telling the doctor that if we only have 3 or 4 fertilize I just want to go ahead and transfer. I don’t want to freeze and then do PGD. It’s just too risky.
So, tomorrow starts my journey, as long as everything looks good. Wish me luck!
