Last night, I had to get my injection done at Hubby’s work. Less than ideal but when you gotta be flexible you gotta suck it up, I guess! One thing I have learned about IVF is be flexible. You are no longer on your time. AT. ALL. Everything is play it by ear and we are flying by the seat of our pants! Just when you think you are getting the hang of something, guess what? It changes! Didn’t have plans next week? Now you do. Surgery! BUT, we can’t tell you what day yet. AH! If you remember reading about my inner control freak, this isn’t playing out so well for me! I read somewhere else from another blogger how you are always looking towards the “Next ____”. Next injection, next blood draw, next ultrasound, next doctor’s appointment, etc. and man, were they right!
Doing really well the majority of the day. I decided to wear jeans (big accomplishment, right?) while running errands. I could tell I’m bloating a little bit because they are definitely a little tighter than normal, especially when I sit. Everything in my abdomen already feels a little tight and “heavy”. It will be interesting to see how it progresses the next week! Otherwise, emotionally I’m feel I’m doing really well. I even asked Hubby if he’s noticed the crabbiness he thought he would and he said no! I consider that a win but I’m also not making any promises it will stay that way. Overall, I feel pretty good!
Next on the agenda?
Still counting down the time (since that’s all I can do) until my next appointment on Friday. I’m anxious to find out how my follies are doing and measuring and to see if my E2 has gone up more! I keep thinking if I feel this way now I can’t imagine how I’ll be during my 2WW (Two Week Wait-The time between transfer and HOPEFULLY positive prego test)! Trying not to do the Dr. Google thing and compare my labwork and history to others but it’s been real hard away. Playing lots of different scenarios internally! Going to go make dinner now and then get ready for more stabbing by Hubby!

It’s awesome and humbling! Also, you can follow me on Twitter and Instagram @thelastkeyblog or on Facebook by clicking HERE. Please like my page and share the heck out of it!!! Remember 1 in 8 couples in the U.S. experience infertility. Meaning, someone you know may be going through something similar!
