This is my journey to motherhood. It's a bumpy road, but I'm traveling it whole heartedly.

Waiting for Lupron
I know I've been kind of MIA for about a week since our TT, I guess I've just been counting down the days still I start injections. Less than two days away. I start Lupron on Thursday and I'll be driving to Rob's parents house for a night and then drive to Atlanta on Friday to meet some fabulous lifelong friends. Two of them I have never met before and one of them I met last year on a similar girl's weekend trip. I am so excited to finally get to meet these two wonderful ladies and spend some quality time with them and my other friend. It's really what's been keeping me going these last few weeks, since I feel like all I've been doing is waiting. I've gotten all the meds and boy was that crazy, there's so much stuff, I feel like I have a drug store in my closet. It's so crazy to be so excited about starting injections, but I really am looking forward to it. I don't care about the pain that may come and all the side effects, I'm excited that for once we actually have greater than a 25% success rate this time. It could actually happen for us in April, I could really be PG by then. I'm trying to stay positive and be as stress free as I can. It's so hard to do because I worry about everything and unfortunately worrying does not go well with IVF. Luckily my prof finally knows what's going on, so he understands that I'm going to be taking some time off for the ER and ET at the end of March and beginning of April. Here's hoping for an Easter Bunny surprise and a Christmas Gift at the end of the year. Wouldn't that be something?
My name is Melissa and I'm 28 years old. I've been married to my husband for six years. We've been together since we were 18. We started TTC in May of 2007. I've been thru 8 rounds of Clomid, 3 IUIs, and IVF#1 which all resulted in BFNs. FET#1 and IVF#2 ended in chemical pregnancies. FET#2 resulted in our little miracle Liam, born 8-17-11. This is now my journey through motherhood and past infertility.
