And so it begins....

I start my Cl.o.mid today... Yesterday I had my baseline scan and then learned how to give myself mena.pur injections. It was a little overwhelming but I know I can do this. I don't know how you IVF girls do it. This is my first medicated cycle with injectibles. My new clinic gave a detailed calendar and instructions. I love calendars and lists, so this gives me mucho comfort. Fingers crossed my follicles grow and we can trigger next Friday. Meanwhile I plan to keep my regular exercise schedule to keep my stress level down. Truthfully I am slightly terrified about this. One I cannot fathom dealing with another miscarriage but at least I know how to deal with that. What's more scary is what if this works? What if I make it to the 2nd trimester? Will my head explode? Will the world stop turning?

I know, I know, one day at a time.

Well, I couldn't help laughing about the possibility of your head exploding. :) I understand what you mean though...it's scary.

Wishing you best of luck.

You can handle the shots. I know they're intimidating, but you've been through much worse. And no matter what happens, your head will NOT explode. Fingers crossed for you.

Just want you to know that I'm thinking of you and pulling for you! I know it's hard to start all over after so many losses. Oh how I hope you soon find yourself in complete awe over a second (and third!) trimester.

Either way it's scary. Hang in there and I hope that Friday goes well!! xoxo
