IVF #2 - Day 4

Total Shot Count - 4

Side Effects - Today I've had a great day physically. I haven't been tired at all.  I have noticed an increase in hunger but I'm hoping that goes away when I stop the birth control pills tomorrow.  I'm so happy I will be putting those behind me, it's nice to have one thing down ha-ha.

A lot of people have been asking me how much longer until I know something here's a quick timeline;

**6 more days of Lupron Shots (unless my cyst isn't gone when they check on Friday at my suppression check, then it will be 13 more days of Lupron shots)
**10-12 days of stims along with lupron shots (last day of stims I do a trigger shot in prep for egg retrieval)
**Egg Retrieval Day
**5 days to let embryos grow
**Egg Transfer Day
**12 days after Transfer - blood pregnancy test!

So as you can see, we have a LONG time to go...ruffly 34 more days before I know if it worked it or not! ;)

I'm having a really hard time today not thinking about what will happen next Friday at my suppression check.  I have a bad feeling that I'm going to be really upset if the cyst is not gone.  If it isn't then I have to wait another week to check again to see if then I can start stims.  I feel like this whole process is SO long that adding another week just seems so daunting.  I'm hoping that my mind and my spirit will be put to rest by God as I seek to trust in him today.  I'm really looking forward to church tonight and tomorrow morning.  Listing to my husband lead worship always gives me a sense of calm and the freedom of worship at Highland Park gives me the opportunity to really come into the presence of God.

I need you right now God.  Please reveal yourself to me as I pray and seek to trust you more and more.  I'm scared and I'm worried, I'm your daughter and I need you right now.  Help me make it through but most importantly help me to trust you and love you through this storm.  Please Lord today, Come Like The Rain....

Blood test at 12 days after transfer? 17dpo? I hope that's after a repeat beta! Good luck, girl!
