OK. So finally, IVF stim time is quickly approaching. I get to play chemist every morning and inject – which, strangely, is kind of satisfying. So if you are considering IVF, this is what about two weeks of meds is going to look like. It will be delivered in a nondescript box that has “confidential” stamped on it. You will want to quickly bring it inside your house, not only because much of it will need to be refrigerated, but also because your neighbors will take one look at the nondescript, “confidential” box and think you ordered a ton of porn. I was asleep on the couch when my package arrived, recovering from a cervix dilation because mine was apparently being stubborn. UPS man did not even ring my bell. Probably wanted to run away from the suspected pervert waiting for their big box o’ secrets.

On a more serious note, I may make light of it and jokingly complain, but I smiled the whole way through paying for and receiving this medicine. Because rather than dreading the IVF preparation, I have chosen to embrace it. I love my daily shots, my blood tests, and my regimen. Because I am so lucky to get to go through this process. And mostly…..I am so excited.

    Sarah, I rejoice with you each step of the way. It brings such fond memories to mind of our adventure in IVF. I wake up to two miracles every day. I look forward to hearing and reading about the day you wake up with your beautiful miracle.

    My meds are given to me in a handy insulated bag with “Pregnyl” printed on the side, which I now use to carry my lunch to work. I am still waiting for a fellow IVFer to recognise my lunch bag and comment!

  3. Ok – let me try these suggestions however I’m still ambivalent concerning a few of them. They are basic steps and so are they actually helpful in quickening maternity?
