Well, the process has commenced. Birth control pills are being swallowed daily by my lovely wife. We don’t have the first ultrasound until February 7, but prior to that we will start the shots of Lupron.
Yes, the dreaded Lupron. We have avoided it so far on our journey, but the clinic wanted to go with that protocol this time. Based on what we both have heard, I am a little worried about it. It sounds like some pretty wild hormonal swings and headaches can occur. Is this true? Can anyone relate any experiences? Anything you could tell, good or bad, would be greatly appreciated.
Otherwise, we’re as ready as we’ll ever be headed into IVF #3. I don’t think I’ll ever view the process like I did prior to the miscarriage. Like a punch that permanently disfigures your face, I’ll carry it with me the rest of my life. But with that said, it’s exciting to get started again. We have a lot to be optimistic and happy about, and I’m ready to ride this roller coaster once more.
