Worst cramps of my life last night! And I didn’t take anything b/c I thought the IVF nurse told me I couldn’t have anything except Tylenol (which we didn’t have at 10pm last night). Apparently I was wrong and that isn’t the case until I start stims…ugh! So I spent the night with a heating pad on my stomach, which did help a little. I called in my CD1 to the nurses so now I go in for my baseline ultrasound and b/w tomorrow morning. I guess I am entering the next phase of IVF, which would explain the emotional breakdown last night. While I was groaning in pain laying in bed last night the waterworks began. I guess I am officially out of the numb phase. I couldn’t help but think about how hard all of this is and how angry it makes me feel that most women (and all the ones I know) haven’t had to poke themselves with needles and drug themselves and go to endless appointments to get pregnant. They get to have a fun night with their husband and POOF a baby in their belly.
The Lupron shots have been fine, but the last two were somewhat uncomfortable and I know it’s just going to get harder from here on out. Bottom line…this is hard and it makes me sad :(
