Follicle Check #1

I had an appointment Monday for an estrogen check. My estrogen was 118 so I continued with the same dose of stims. I  had prayed that it would stay the same and I wouldn't have to buy more!!! Thank you God!!
Today I had an estrogen and follicle check. My ultrasound showed 6 follicles on each side so we have 12 as of now. My estrogen was 201. I will keep taking 2 vials of Menopar and 2 vials of Bravelle and I will add ganerilex so I don't ovulate. I go back on Friday for another round of checks.
Yesterday, a lady at my school came up to me and said God told her to talk to me. She said that he told her to tell me not to worry and that he took so long because he didn't want me to worry about losing what I had. I hope this is a good omen and this IVF works for us!! Please keep praying ladies:)
I hope everyone is having a great week!!

Started stims!

I'm on day two of shots! They are going well. Yesterday I was in a hurry and I was about to take my shot when I realized I hadn't taken a pic of meds. This time is so different then last time because I'm much busier! I hope that I can relax and keep my stress level low. I don't want anything to mess up this cycle.
On a different note; kenz and i had a great day! she had dance pictures this morning. My mom came with us. She did great with individuals but cried a little on the group picture because another little girl started crying. After pictures, we went to the zoo. Kenz and I took a nap this afternoon and then went to church. Pretty awesome day!
Hope everyone is having a great weekend!

Ivf starts tomorrow

Tomorrow is my mock transfer. It's also when my fees are due. I'm still very nervous this time around. We could do so much with 14,000. It's such a risk. Hopefully with prayer and Gods blessing it will be a risk that we were meant to take. Please pray for us;) have a great week!!

Ivf scares

The first time we did ivf, we were childless. We would have done anything to have a baby! The money never crossed our minds.
This time, we have a perfect three year-old! It makes it so much scarier!! What if we spend 14,000 and it doesn't work. We could have put that in her college fund, gone to Disney, and been out of debt.
Please pray that we find peace and that this works. We can't afford to do it twice. Thanks girls!
