Exactly one week after I finished 10 days of progesterone hell, I awoke in the middle of the night swimming in blood. TMI - perhaps, but hey, I've never been so excited to change
the sheets my PJs in the middle of the night!
Drum roll please...today, March 7th, is cycle day one of our first ovulation induction cycle on our baby Wilson 2.0 journey!
I have an appointment at Dr. S & Dr. A's office tomorrow to give them a big ol' check and review my cycle calendar. Their nurse said that she was calling in my meds this morning and that I'd start taking Femera on Friday. We're sticking with Femara and Follistim, just like we did with Jackson.
The only difference between this cycle and "Jackson's cycle" is that our family knows this time! I still can't believe I kept everything from them to begin with. However, I can't exactly say that they would have been on board at the time. My mom and sister, who are insanely fertile, were totally in the mind set that you just have sex and you get pregnant. They thought I wasn't getting pregnant because my type A self was obsessing and that was the problem...Which was why this blog and all of you became such an important part of my life! My family didn't know about the blog until after Jackson was born.
So, four years later and a little living proof that I needed some medical help, I am more then sure everyone is on board! I have to say what a difference this is going to be. Knowing that we have all of our family to pray for us and support us, no matter what the outcome is. No sweaty palms, hiding and feelings of guilt for keeping a huge secret from my mom. And, most importantly, I'm not embarrassed and ashamed that I can't make a baby without the help of baby makin' hormones!
Here's to hoping, praying, and crossing our fingers and toes that we'll have baby Wilson 2.0 just in time for Christmas!
I'll update more tomorrow after my appointment. I can't thank y'all enough for following along as we go through this emotional roller coaster once more!
