Hey all! Thanks for stopping by for IComLeavWe. You can read my history on the right side of my blog, but to sum it up, I am parenting two boys, age 3 (conceived through IVF) and 1 (surprise BFP), and am currently in the beginning of my first FET cycle. I started Estrace yesterday and Vivelle Friday. I have been injecting Lupron for the past 10 days. So far so good. No big side effects, except for my coffee withdrawals! ha! I chose to stop coffee when I started Lupron. I know; not necessary, but I want to make sure this is all done as "correctly" as possible, and that means no caffeine or alcohol while I'm prepping for the transfer.
I signed consent forms at the RE and have decided to transfer two blasts. This may change as the days near, but hubs and I have talked it through, and we are on board with whatever possibilities may arise from the transfer.
I have a lot of weird feelings about the FET. I guess I am simply building my family now, but am I still infertile? If I conceived "naturally," does that mean I am cured? I also feel a bit like I am being greedy. Weird, right? I do think it has a lot to do with feeling guilty about having IVF success, then a bonus baby, and here I am again. All those buried emotions that come with infertility come bubbling up, and I sometimes feel overwhelmed.
But on a higher note, if you are here for the first time, welcome! I look forward to reconnecting with people on my blog!
