Suppression Check Passed

We had our suppression check this morning.  Great News: 

Overall, it was a quick appointment today.  They did the necessary bloodwork and sent me for my ultrasound.  My cyst was still evident on the screen, but it had shrunk in size to 1.6cm.  (Previously, it measured 2.35cm).

Our NP gave me 1200IU of Follistim that had been saved for me since my cancelled cycle in January.  We have not been actively TTC since January.  Wow!  It just occurred to me that it's been that long since we were cycling.  I have no idea how I have made it this long.  And here goes my crazy lady Lupron rant:
Since January I have definitely received much unwanted and unwarranted advice.  I am glad that I chose to make my journey public, but sometimes I wish that people would stop trying to give us advice.  Don't get me wrong, I love when people talk to us about overcoming infertility.  I met a lady from church last week who introduced me to her twins conceived via IUI.  I knew that those two boys were truly a miracle!  Lately, people automatically assume that I'm just distraught; or that I need to relax.  Surprisingly enough, I think that I've been as relaxed as possible.  Yes, I want a baby more than anything.  BUT if I have to hear "in God's time" from one more person I may strangle them.  =)   Did they have to wait for a baby?  Did they have to have numerous procedures and timed intercourse?  If you have not battled Infertility, don't tell someone that it's all a part of God's plan and that it will happen in His timing.  Believe me,  I know this, and do NOT need you to tell me! **Rant over!  This is probably the Lupron talking...  My moods have been swinging!  

We also had to hand over payment for the cycle.  All I can say is that God provides!

Our payment receipt
Janet called and left message on my patient voice mail around 1:30pm saying that everything looked wonderful.  She instructed me to follow my calendar protocol and begin stims on Sunday.  I can't believe it's all happening!

  1. I was just posting the same thing regarding people giving their two cents. I almost want to put my hands over my ears and be like my ten year olds - "I can't hear you! Lalalalalala!" I guess perhaps people think they are being supportive when they give their two cents, but it's definitely NOT.

  2. YAY for continuing! I am praying for you :) and I can't wait to see where your journey leads you. I, too, hate when people tell me that. UGH!

  3. So so super happy for your good news! I also can't stand advice from those who I didn't ask. I find that I don't mind advice from fellow IF friends, but people who have no idea what they are talking about when it comes to IF have no clue what they are saying! It drives me nuts!

  4. I am praying for y'all. I have never had to go through this journey but I definitely try to empathize. I am hoping and praying this month is a success for you!!!

  5. You is smart. You is kind. YOU IS A STRONG WOMAN <3

  6. Congrats on passing! That is awesome news! Good Luck on your upcoming cycle! I just started reading your blog. I am going through the same things as you but haven't made it to IVF yet. We did our first IUI today!


Thank you for visiting my blog! I appreciate your comments and support on our journey.

As for me, I will always have hope; I will praise you more and more.
