And an update- I FINALLY started my period today! I'll call the clinic this morning and find out whats next. I know I'll start birth control on Thursday, but I'm unsure if I need to go in for a baseline since I was just in a week and a half ago for an ultrasound. Even though we're doing a full BC cycle before we start BC for IVF, reality is setting in that this is all starting again. This next month will be very similar to what May was for our first cycle, and while May seemed to drag on, I spent a lot of time worrying that my cycle would go on forever and IVF would get pushed back. Since we're doing a month of BC, we can be fairly sure when everything will happen moving forward. As of today our chart should be making its rounds through the clinic, drugs should start being ordered, insurance should be notified, our calendar should be created.... EXCITING!!!
So, here we go. There is no looking back now. Again, just like our first cycle, I am oddly calm about the whole thing. I'm taking the 'what will be, will be' approach and trying not to stress about the outcome when we haven't even started yet. I'm sure some anxiety will come, but less about the process more about the results. For now, I just keep reminding myself that I did it before and I can do it again... all of it. I'm strong. I'm tough. I'm not a quitter.
