Hooray! We are back on track after a short break. Ok, well it was actually quite a long break. But, never the less, on we go!
This time is going to be a bit different than our last two tries. Here is everything I know so far....
We are switching clinics. We were with NEFI out of CT who I loved, and we are moving to CFP in CA. Last time were frozen transfers, this time will be a fresh transfer. Last time we did oral and *ahem* vagina mints, this time will be injectable medicines.
Lots of changes this time which make me nervous but I am excited at the same time!
M and I went to a local clinic to draw our blood, and get our urine and do all the fun tests (note the sarcasm). I really dislike needles. I get all shakey around them, but I am not as bad as some people. Side note: My gf said that if she ever gets diagnosed with diabetes, that she will die, because she is so fearful of needles she wont be able to poke herself.... I'm not at that point, but still pretty scared! Anyways, the nurse that took my blood did it SO quickly and SO painless. I want to bring her with me for the rest of my life. I normally get poked at least 2 times, and she only poked me once. BEST NURSE EVER!
Anyways, we are waiting for the blood test results to come back, which should be in by Wednesday. Meanwhile, my cycle started, and I have started my chewable prenatals - LOVE them, they taste like the fred flinstone kind from when you were a kid! I should start birth control probably tomorrow or the next day. That will help when its time to sync my cycle up with the Intended Mothers (N).
I am really scared about the needles and medicine that I willl have to inject. I have googled it, watched youtube videos about the injections and read blogs. Im trying to educate myself as much as possible to understand what to expect. I pray I can convince M to inject me so I dont have to!
That's all for now, but I will keep you all posted!
