Next date with the Doc…Monday

Standard

Monday is my next date with the Doc and I am really looking forward to it.  This is going to be a biggie.

On Monday, I go in for blood tests and a check up with the doc.  The blood tests are to check for various counts that indicate that the drugs I am currently on are doing their job – so hopefully the past few weeks of injecting will have worked and not been a waste (can you imagine how I will flip out if they haven’t worked?!?!?!).  The doc will also do an ultrasound on me to check that all looks good. 

All going well, I then get a big fat green light from him to move onto the “kick-ass” drugs.  From what I understand these are also injecting types and are the stimulatory drugs that will kick my ovaries up a notch in producing lots of eggs for harvesting.  So Monday is really one of the make-or-break days.  My bod HAS to be doing what is should on these drugs to move onto the next phase. 

Prayers a plenty please?!  I am walking out in faith and excited to get a move on with the next phase – even if it does mean more pin-holes in my tummy!  Have a great weekend everyone and I’ll be back on Tuesday to give you the news.

  1. Hello dear girl! Boy this is quite the journey and I think you are being very brave indeed! I was thinking of you a lot these last couple of days. I was thinking that trusting the promises that God has given you must be a daily priority and something that must be difficult to remind yourself of as you battle a sore and bruised body. Then I was reading from Romans 4 (and again in my most favorite translation “The Message”) and this once again reminded me of the promise….

    Romans 4:19. Abraham didn’t focus on his own impotence and say “It’s hopeless. This hundred-year-old body could never father a child.” Nor did he survey Sarah’s decades of infertility and give up. He didn’t tiptoe around God’s promise asking cautiously skeptical questions. He plunged into the promise and came up strong, ready for God, sure that God would make good on what he had said.

    So Sarah’s story is not yours but it could be more like Abraham who always trusted that God would make good on His promise…….

    Keep trusting and keep strong and keep reminding yourself of the promise….

    Lots of love….

    • Dear Caz, thank you my friend. I am so in need of spiritual support and words to keep me upbeat. Either way, I have to do this but it is the how that is important. How do I cope, how do I put on a brave face and remain positive. I don’t want to look back on this and be dissappointed with the process and I don’t want to look back at it having been a negative experience. This whole IVF thing is not for sissies but am trusting in the Lord for strength. Keep me motivated, Sister. Thank you x

  2. Dear Sian,

    Thank you for sharing your journey with me! Keep the faith…………. you know they say “close your eyes and open your heart – that is FAITH”.

    Your next round of injections are gruelling to say the least, but personal experience says “use the butt” I found not being a large lady the legs are painfull! Big salute to Gary too, however if you go to a clinic they would happily do the shot for you – just a suggestion.

    I am in awe of your blog and perhaps when myself and our surrogate has finished our book you would like to contribute.

    As sad as our story is their is an inner peace knowing that I can and will support those trying to achieve a family.

    You are in my thoughts and prayers and praise God that He is with you through this.

    Much love.

    Kay

    p.s. We always said if we had a daughter her name would be Molly Faith ~ just such a coincidence that you have called your journey “Meeting Molly”

    • Kay, I am THRILLED to hear you are writing a book! You are a woman of strength! I would love to contribute in any way you would like, let me know. The injections are now over (whew!) and harvesting is booked for tomorrow. We are so excited and feeling so happy and healthy which is a testament to God’s peace – I really don’t know how we would do this without Him. Thinking of you so much and continually holding you prayer. Much love.
