Today was our first appointment for our IVF cycle. We are both so excited but super nervous. When we showed up at the office we had expected to start the drugs Thursday but instead we started today. I seriously can’t believe it – I still feel like this isn’t really happening! We had our teaching class to show us how to mix the drugs and what dosages are needed. For some reason mixing the drugs is what terrifies me the most. Thank goodness Brent was there – he helped me through the mixing tonight. He also made me do the needle myself and it surprisingly wasn’t bad. I didn’t hesitate but I did have a hard time pushing the needle down to get the liquid in. So after day one, I’ve decided that it’s not as bad as I psyched it up to be. I am hoping that the next few days are just as easy.
