Oh, hello there IVF...

Believe it or not...there's been a change of plans! We started the meds tonight for our first IVF. HFS!!!

After speaking with the nurse this morning at my appointment, I changed my mind. She told me that you can get OHSS doing any kind of fertility treatment and that other people have chosen to go this route. The no long lupron route. It's been an emotional few days. Going from thinking we were going to be able to start, to not being able to start and accepting it and then wham! Things changed and we are going forward...

It took me a few hours to get this settled in my head, that we have actually started! I'm nervous and excited and just praying that everything goes well. I just have to trust in the whole process and trust in ourselves. I'm done with doubt, and now we are just going to give it our all and stay positive and hope for the best!!

We'll probably be praying our asses off, too.

Thank you all again for all your advice. I know some of you may be shocked that I changed my mind, but we really feel good about this final decision. It's all in the hands of something bigger anyways :)

p.s.
If anyone has or knows someone who has any leftover Bravelle for sale, PLEASE let me know asap :)

Now, if you'll excuse me I have to retreat to the bedroom where there is a better-working AC unit. It's like 3,000 degrees here in NY. I'm having heat hallucinations about being locked in a meat freezer.

Oooh exciting!! :) Good for you for taking the plunge. Lots of people are doing this protocol and it works for them, so why not? I am just taking 50 IU of Puregon and there is a risk of OHSS for just that - with any fertility drug. Hoping for good thins for you my dear! You so deserve it! :)
