Moving Onward


I sometimes do not know whether to find it comforting or disconcerting when I think about all of the tests and steps involved in preparing for IVF.  It almost makes me feel like we are back at the drawing board 2 years ago trying to figure out what is wrong in the first place.  A single item of comfort for myself is having been through three previous rounds of injectable medications.  I know a few other women who have undergone IVF after multiple IUI cycles with clomid and one the hardest things for them is adjusting to the many shots given over the course of a several weeks.  I am actually thankful that I have been through this already and will not have the added anxiety of not knowing what to expect when I start shoving needles into my stomach and legs.  (Oh the little pleasures right?). But here’s to our first IVF try and all of the little roller coasters that are sure to go along with it!



About thepcosandinfertilityjourney

For almost two years I have felt so down and alone trying to maintain a normal and happy life since I realized that my husband and I would struggle to create a family. I began to second guess everything in my life, have I done the right things, made the right choices, is it my job, is it where I live, what is it and what can I do to make it better? Then, one night while laying in bed it hit me, and the words just started flowing. I have always loved writing and when I was little always wanted to be an author but never had the inspiration of something to write about; now I do. I am going to share my story, my struggles, my hopes, my fears, my triumphs in the hope that it will help someone else going through the same rollercoaster that I am the way many books, blogs, and chats have helped me cope. I will share with you how I am determined to make sure that one of my life’s dreams are not shot down and the obstacles I go through to get there.
