After almost 4 months of waiting patiently we started our IVF cycle this week. Wednesday, DH came with me to the baseline appointment. I woke up at 1:30 that morning unable to go back to sleep. I wasn't worried so much, but excited to see what was going to happen. The Dr said everything looked really good and it was a go. He said we would start our meds on Friday (today). I have been working extremely hard since January to become healthier. My bmi had creeped into the overweight category over the past year, I think because of the stress of ttc. My Dr told me in Nov last year to do the South Beach Diet because it is the "ultimate fertility diet". He said it was good for couples ttc because you almost eliminate all complex carbohydrates. It was really difficult to do because I love the sweets, but I did it and I am now 15 pounds lighter and int the normal range. I gave myself my first shot this morning and I am really excited to see how my follies are growing on tuesday when I go in for a check up. I have really good feelings about this cycle and I am not going to let anything bring me down. Its time to start hoping for the best and taking it one step at a time.
