**For new followers: I have quite a few new followers since I was last on treatment so I thought it would only be fair to give you a heads up: I am pretty open about what Husband and I are going through to make Baby Hill. I have mentioned this in the past and will always stick by this: everyone has the right to make their own choice on how they choose to deal with infertility. For Husband and I, we decided it was way easier to be open and forthcoming with our details- and it was a way for us to teach family members about it since we are not close with anyone who has struggled like we have. BUT, I know and completely understand that for other people it is not that easy and I completely support their decision to not discuss infertility as openly. With that being said........I post pretty much everything that we go through (although I dont go through any nasty details). Yes, a lot of what we go through has been very hard, but I still always want to share it with all of you :)
Husband and I could not have planned our trip any more perfectly........it was at the perfect time for us to get away from everything and "de stress" from all the emotions we have gone through these past couple of months. Right before we left, we had officially entered month 10 of trying for Baby Hill with no success. Husband and I took last week as a chance to take a step back and really think about what we have been through and how much longer we wanted to keep at it before pursuing more intense treatment. Before returning on our trip we made this decision: we will give injectionables 2 to 3 more months- and if we still have nothing, we will likely start saving for IVF.
I had spoken with my doctor's office several weeks before leaving and they had wanted me to call immediately upon returning (and finishing the birth control) so that they could check the cyst once again. I called first thing this morning and they strongly urged for me to come in immediately for another ultrasound since it has been several weeks. I went in today and.........NOTHING! The cyst has completely disappeared (thank goodness!) and in even better news everything looks better than it ever has- apparently 2 months on bc helped "tame" my PCOS a bit.
This means we are starting with these again.........
My injectionables! We are going to have to do some creative planning because there is only a small window of opportunity to take these each night and Husband has a different schedule than he did the last time we did them (meaning he sometimes has to work more late evenings). In fact, I am about 99% sure we will have to do a couple of these injections in various places outside of our home because I cannot stand the idea of giving them to myself!
With that, here is Husband giving me my first shot of this round:
Cross your fingers everyone! :)
