Last cycle before IVF 1.0

23 Jan

Yesterday was CD 1. Since my period came a little earlier than expected (before pay day) I’ll have to pay Drs. C next week and start mid-February with injections (next expected period is between 16th and 18th of February).
Doctor C was straightforward about the whole process, so D and I left the office feeling sure and optimistic!

I began taking a tablespoon of the Aloe Vera gel (safe until CD 21) in a last ditch effort to improve the condition of my Fallopian tubes. Miracles occur everyday, so…

As for my period, it was medium flow and there were some annoying cramps, so I took pain meds in the afternoon and the evening.

There are no cramps this morning, thank God. I am feeling nauseous, though, because I may have used too much creamer in my coffee. I only drink coffee during my period now, by the way. If I wasn’t menstruating, I’d swear I was pregnant…that’s how bad it is. The bleeding is heavy, which is normal for CD 2, and I’m doing ok mentally.

Off to do some work now! Thanks for reading!
