Uneventful Start to IVF #3
I have officially started IVF #3 today - yippee! Usually when I start my IVF cycle, I wait for the nurse to come by each evening. She carefully prepares the needle, while I stare at it, craving for the hormones that will help me get to where I need to go. I lift up my shirt, close my eyes and she stabs me in my belly. Ok, I may be a tad bit dramatic. My new doctor has completely changed my protocol and I'm starting out with pills this time round. Popping a pill twice a day, every morning and evening, for 1 week. Very uneventful and darn right boring. The pill, Provames, is a form of estrogen that will help my body prepare for the next stage in IVF. Eventful or uneventful, I am so happy to start the process again! This time around may the sun shine on me, the stars be perfectly aligned, the fertility god give me a helping hand and I welcome any other forces that will make this cycle THE ONE.
