7dp3dt

I had to go to the RE's office this morning to get a blood test. They test a week after ET for E2 and P4 levels. I was hoping that I'd get to stop the PIO injections, but no luck. I'm glad they didn't increase my current dosage. They are making me take the PIO injections in my bicep and it makes my arm sore for the whole day. I've tried massaging the injection site after the injection and that helps a bit and then at night I use a heating pad on it. Anyway, I'm whining because my hormones are out of control. I hate the 2ww.

I have stopped going to acupuncture sessions, I know I didn't give it much of a chance but honestly, I didn't see any improvement in my egg quality or number of eggs produced.

I have no pregnancy symptoms... I'm wondering how long I can hold out to POAS. I'm thinking I can make it to Saturday if AF hasn't arrived.

I would like to say a BIG thank you to everyone who has wished me good luck during this IVF cycle. I can't tell you how much it has meant to have people on my side. There aren't very many people that know we are on this IF journey. It's weird how friends respond, some friends that know just don't know what to say. Some friends try and talk about everything but this but our lives have been consumed by it.


And all the money I was spending on acupuncture, I have decided to spend that on DH and I for the holidays. I bought these cute red maryjane shoes for a holiday party....















I think I've mentioned that I have a shoe problem...

So the price of my depression is costing more every day of this long 2ww. I know the chance of Slim making it is 1 in 5. I'm hoping I can beat the odds but I'm not going to fool myself either. I've never beat the odds at anything, I've never had anything given to me easily, I've had to work extremely hard to earn everything I've ever received.

Ok, I'm rambling.....

BIG HEARTS for how much I love your shoes. They may just make the 2 ww bearable.

wow, those shoes are really awesome!

i can't believe you have to take the PIO shots in your ARM. that is a special kind of torture.

you have done everything you can for yourself during this cycle. you have been amazingly strong. i know you feel like you don't ever beat the odds, but your strength has to count for something.

I am so glad you treated yourself to something nice!!! You deserve it whether or not you have a closet full of shoes already. I will keep my fingers crossed for you!!!

The wait and unknowing is tough, so you need to treat yourself. Soo...purchase with reckless abandon! (get those Mary Janes in black!) Seriously, I'm sending you positive thoughts. Hang in there.
