Yesterday I sat down with all of the paperwork on the drugs that I'm taking and made sure they were all what I needed, made sure I knew when to take them and how to take them correctly. I realized that in addition to the thyroid medication and metformin (3x per day) that I already take I will at one point be taking 14 pills/injections/suppositories per day... I'm pretty sure this is going to call for a spreadsheet. I'm fairly sure my cell phone will be vibrating constantly reminding me to take something.
I am SO thankful that I don't have to work and will be able to be constantly at my pill box. Not to mention the side effects from these drugs- I don't know how you all manage to work full time and do IVF all at the same time. It feels like a full time job between appointments, constant medication consumption and trying to be stress-free and relatively relaxed about the process.
I love that I am not really feeling any apprehension about this cycle. We did six IUIs for one reason, I wasn't ready to step into IVF. After about IUI #3 we were pretty sure we'd be eventually moving on to IVF, but I just wasn't ready. Although I feel like we wasted some time, I do feel like it was a great choice us.
Another tiny step toward our baby/ies!!!!!
