Don't Count Your Eggs

Sorry the shots are starting to get painful. That's what happens towards the end...but it's towards the end!!! I was on 8 vials of menopur at one point. I don't even know how much that actually is, but it wasn't pretty. I hope the extra boost of follistim helps. Your blog is great! Keep writing and stay strong!


I may have spoken too soon....it seems now that my stomach is a pin cushion and bruised, the injections are getting more and more painful. They upped my dosage of Follistim yesterday--ugh.
Friday I find out if it's helping.

I have a blog--no where near as awesome as yours, but it helps vent frustration. I haven't told anyone I know about it, but I think it's safe within the confines of IF Island! Check it out if you have time, I'm open to suggestions and comments from anyone who has any insight/input on what we are all going through.


As an aside, I lived in Playa Del Rey about 15 years ago--loved every second of it!

Don't Count Your Eggs

You ladies are AWESOME!
Lauren, YOU READ MY MIND! I've been thinking of trying to organize an LA based meet up soon. Maybe I'll post it later tonight. I looked up the meetup.com but didn't see the group you're referring to...also, I'm a tech tard. But what is PVED? Would love to meet you one day!
Rebecca-- I hear ya. When I think about going back on Lupron (which is probably soon to come), I want to gouge my eyes out.And then after the shots there's the waiting...I'm not making this any better am I? But we're in it to win in! And you're en route! I wish you the best of luck. Please keep me posted!
T-- it's almost impossible to feel like we have any control over our lives when we are waiting to figure out the next steps. It sucks. It just does. You're right, the only thing we can do is feel present and know it won't be like this forever! And Courtney--Thanks for the well wishes! Right back at ya! Sending much love and luck!


Wow, I seriously feel like we have the exact same feelings about good ol IF!! Wishing you guys lots of luck & love this New Year!!

So true. So needed to hear this. I stress myself out so so much about the fact that I have no idea what the next step is or if there'll be a next step or what days I'm going to have Dr appointments. There's so much I have no control over. But I'm in control of this moment, and that's important.
Beyond helpful. Thank you!


Hoping this is the year for you and Noah...and me too! I agree about responding rather than reacting, but its hard. We are starting a FET cycle and I just don't want to do it. Don't want the appointments, don't want the shots, don't want the hormones, dont want to have to miss work, don't want any of it...except for the end result of a BFP. It's hard to always get yourself there mentally, but we do what we have to do. Thank you for sharing your journey, it helps to know others can relate!

I am always so impressed by your resilience, Maya. Welcome home indeed!

BTW, don't know if you've heard but there is a PVED meeting in Manhattan Beach this Sunday afternoon -- details on their MeetUp.com page. If you're also going, look out for the 6'1" woman with the British accent and feel free to introduce yourself :)
