Going out with a bang

Well, I got some good news! We are getting our retrieval tomorrow!!! I didn't know that I was going to have to take all these shots though! Going out with a BANG. (Shots)
 
I had to take 6 vials of Bravelle (3 power/1 water Xs 2) 1 in each thigh and 1 injection of Decapeptyl in my arem at 2130 then I had to get another shot.... (2 powder/1 water) in my Bum! The upper part, I am not going to lie, that was the most painful shot that I have taken! I do not know if it was the PERSON, the NEEDLE or the Meds! But I screamed! I am not sure what is the name of the meds but it was some HCG shot.
I got home around 11 PM. Gustavo is in Dubai... So it sucked having to do it all alone! I like it when he is with me.
So, I have to take a couple of pills in the morning and also take my meds to them (They made me buy the meds before the retreival)
 


 More to follow! I am hoping that Gustavo will fly in tonight, because I really NEED him tomorrow! He will be doing his part!
I hope I do not get sick from the MJ Milk (Propofol) like I did last time!
It is funny because the Dr. said that I look Strong but I am "delicate" and "sensitive" to the medicine! LOL...

To Tell or Not to Tell? That is the Question!


Many times when people are going through IVF, they do not know who should know. So who should you tell?

1.        Tell your DIRECT supervisor! I have a lot of management in my office, but I only told ONE of my managers.

2.        CLOSE friends… I have only told a handful of people. (And who ever reads the blog) //We have also told the kids!!!//

3.        I HAVE NOT told my family… But we have told Gustavo’s Mother.

Now here are the reasons:
-      Tell your boss because you may be moody with the meds that you are taking. Also because there is a possibility that you will be missing a lot of work. You do not want them to think that you do NOT have a valid reason. I have my doctor give me a sick note, even though I am not asked for it. Just to be on the SAFE side
-      Tell people that care about you and want you happy. They will have a positive energy that will make life a bit LESS stressful. Talk to them and share what you are going thru. One minute you may be crying and the next minute… laughing.
-      I have NOT told my family because I am SCARED to fail. I would hate to get everyone all excited and then have the worst happen.

Now this is just my outlook. You do not have to do it “MY” way. This is just how WE have done it.

I know you may be thinking… How is it a secret if it is on a blog? And the answer is: It isn’t a secret… and I just want to remember EVERY lil piece of this voyage! It is hard to find out a lot of good info on the process!

Twin Amber and Ron

Amber may be 9 months pregnant... But she still has a sense of HUMOR!
 She is LOVIN' French Fries with Ketchup and Mayo.... And a side of PICKLES? Yes- You read it right! LOL. I cannot wait to meet ALLYANA! I hope that Amber will be able to make it to DJ's Birthday party! He named her one of the COLLEST people he knows. LOL. Mimi takes a very DEFENSIVE stance over Amber as well. In the store she stays with her so no one "TAKES her"... Gotta love 'em!
