Endometrial Biopsy

So I had the biopsy done today and to be honest it hurt. Badly.

It was the worst feeling ever. The biopsy lasted all of five minutes but it was the worst five minutes. I could literally feel my doctor scraping my uterus. I asked him what he was looking for and he basically just said he was looking to see how my lining was at this point in my cycle. I guess we will see what he finds. I had to take my first Lupron shot today and then I also have to take my first Metformin pill tonight. I've heard mixed reviews about Met, some say you get stomach issues other are fine with it so we shall see.

I feel so much more prepared this time around. I feel like I know what to expect with each step and that makes me feel at ease. Now I have to wait for my lovely period to show up so we can start the stimulation meds.

Are we having fun yet?!

Just An Update

I'm still taking the birth control pills and things are moving slowly for right now. I go on the 26th for the biopsy which I've heard mixed reviews about. Some have said it doesn't hurt others it does. I guess I will find out when I go on Monday. As of right now that's all I got going on. I will post more once I go for the biopsy.

IVF#2 Is Going To Be This Month!

To be honest, I didn't think we'd be able to pull it off. With us being very tight on cash I didn't see it happening anytime soon. We thought maybe October but couldn't nail down an exact month. Dan and I sat down last night and talked it over and cut some corners and came to the conclusion that we would be able to pull it off for this month. Needless to say I was extremely grateful and beyond excited. I called my doctor this morning and the plan is set in motion. I have to take birth control pills from now until the 26th. I go to the doctors on the 26th for that biopsy that I was suppose to have done two months ago and then I will start all the drugs. The tentative date for the retrieval is August 13th.

I seriously cannot believe that we are able to do this. I feel so lucky that we were able to work all of this out. I feel more comfortable about the whole process as well. I know what to expect every step of the way from the shots to the retrieval. I have a great support system both at home and at my doctors office that I have complete faith that it will work this time. I just know it will.
