What an interesting twister of emotions. We went into our WTF appointment (Where you can read about what our newest protocol is) thinking we probably wouldn't try again for a while, to wanting to try again in the next couple of months. My RE seemed so positive and uplifting. We are so lucky to have found her.
The second we left, we talked about if we should tell anyone or not. The answer was NO. We were not going to tell ANYONE. We want the chance to have a secret pregnancy like every other human who can conceive naturally.
Well, I received my newest FET protocol a few days ago. It's so so hard. I go between being excited and being terrified. Doesn't this baby deserve the same amount of excited feelings as our first try? It has so work this time. IT HAS TO!
So, I received the e-mail on Friday at 2:30pm on October 6th. I opened up the document and the first thing I noticed...
***I AM NOT A DOCTOR. SPEAK TO YOUR DOCTOR/NURSE BEFORE TAKING YOUR PIO SHOT. THIS IS WHAT MY NURSE SHOWED ME***
FINALLY, the day had come. After the whole summer of cancelled FET's and having to be on Lupron for an entire month, I couldn't believe we made it to this point! We were at the Progesterone point of our second FET try! This is HUGE for us!
My new FET protocol was to use Progesterone in Oil right off the bat instead of the vaginal pills this time. It actually is not bad AT ALL! The day after I had to start PIO, my husband had to go away on a business trip! I was so scared to give myself the shot in the rear, but I had to do it. I had no choice. After talking with my nurse about how to properly administer the shot, it seemed easier.
Here are some tips I've learned along the way:
1.) DO NOT JUST GIVE YOURSELF THE SHOT IN THE MIDDLE OF YOUR BUTT!!!! It is INCORRECT!
