It’s a Go

We have a plan. We have a drug list. And, in just a month and a half, we should have a baby baking away.

My trial transfer and sonohistogram went really well today, despite the fact that we were never told these procedures have to be done at a certain point in the cycle, and I am just now at the end of my last cycle. We were able to proceed, though, and the trial transfer went well. There were no problems navigating the catheter, so the real deal should go quite smoothly. The sonohistogram was *incredibly* painful but positive. The doctors saw no reason why I shouldn’t be able to sustain a pregnancy. Yay!

We spent quite a while with injection training, the same class I had to take several months ago. It was much more bearable, though, because I knew I was going to be taking the shots and because the teacher was different. Joe had a great time learning how to give shots. He didn’t really seem to understand that he wasn’t the one receiving the shots, though.

Then he found out he would be able to give me shots (a *lot* of shots, I might add), and he was quite happy. He was told to inject the needle like a dart. He had fun practicing, and said that it works a lot better if he stands a little ways back from the target. I told him it wasn’t a *real* dart.

I start the medicines around the middle of next month, and my transfer will be in the middle of March. I’ll likely be pregnant on my birthday, but I won’t be able to test until the week after. Cross your fingers for us!

  23. Owen says:

    Good luck! We’re in the middle of a FET cycle at the moment. Had the transfer last week and keeping fingers crossed. I wish you all the best!

    We originally planned that I would give my wife her injections as she has a fear of needles, but it ended up that she was more comfortable doing it herself as she felt more in control.

    Again .. best of luck!

  24. Lisanne says:

    I wish you guys the best of luck! It sound very, very hopeful and positive! I know that this will be THE year for you. Can’t wait to follow your pregnancy and hear about your experiences. We’re considering trying for our third next year around this time! šŸ™‚ Maybe … not sure yet!
