The only reason that I'm writing this post is to document my progress with IVF and also to inform y'all about the minor bump in the road that I learned today. At no point in time do I want y'all to get annoyed with my blogging about this topic. However, it's a very REAL and LARGE part of my life. I sincerely appreciate the support and lovin' that I get for each & every one of you. It does not go unnoticed.
As you may recall from my post yesterday (here), I explained my excitement of seeing my fertility doctor for a trial-run embryo transfer. All went well ... until they found 2 cysts that my body felt like creating. Just lovely. I've been on birth control for over a month since learning we were not pregnant with IUI and I must remain on it for another 2-3 weeks. I pray that these upcoming weeks fly by.
My next doctor appointment is on August 6th and that's when we follow up about the cysts. One of two things will happen:
1) The cysts will be suppressed on their own (due to birth control) and we can start IVF ...OR...
2) The cysts will still be noticeable, but most likely the doctor will 'drain' them so that we can start IVF.
Now that we have the fertility medications at our house (which cost us a boat load of money), the doctors want to make sure that the meds don't expire or anything like that.
What does this mean?
First, it means that I won't be starting my injectables tomorrow as originally planned. Second, it means that I don't have my updated IVF calendar outlining when the shots starts/when my egg retrieval is/when the embryo transfer is.
My patience has been tested over the past 2 years of our trying to create a Mini Skinner. I know I will be able to get by the next couple of weeks, but I can't do it on my own... so I am leaning on God.
