So I got home from a 31 party to this wonderful package in the mail! I was told it wasn’t going to come until late next week, so I was very pleasantly surprised when it showed up TODAY, and on a Saturday!
What is it, you wonder…well it’s my “frozen embryo transfer cycle” dates! So this is information I went over with Jill, our coordinator at CRM, back on July 12. And when I saw the information that you are about to see in the picture below, I was nervous! You see, I am kind of a perfectionist. And if I miss any of what you are seeing, it could change things dramatically (at least that’s what I’m telling myself).
So now I see the exact dates and all. the. meds that I GET to take/inject over the next 3 months! Yep, you saw that right- injections for 3 months! And did I mention that there’s a calendar with exact dates and times to take these 3-4 different meds? And some I have to take 3 times a day! See evidence below!
Oh yeah…and it’s highlighted just to make sure I know to pay special attention to those things and days! Cue nerves of fearing I will mess up! This isn’t just a test I may fail…this is a human we’re talking about!
So I begin my first injections on August 28. 4 weeks from this coming Monday! Do you know how fast 4 weeks go? Back up 4 weeks…it was a week before America’s birthday! And the 4th of July seems like a long time ago! So fast forward 4 weeks and I’ll be inserting a needle into my belly. (Don’t worry…I’ll be posting about that, too!)
As you look at this and try to understand this schedule, understand that, YES, I am willing to do this in order to bring a precious baby into the loving arms of Travis, Tory & Teagan!! It will be a delivery far more exciting than the mail delivered to me today! So wish me luck…I may need it!
