My battle with Infertility///Up Close and Personal with an IVF Athlete....Part 5
Part 5: The start of our Second Cycle
Well, I am just 4 days into our second IVF Cycle, and besides having the flu for the last 3 days, I am feeling pretty good. They are changing my protocol up a little bit, so I will be doing injections for 21 days instead of just 14 days.....so I may look like a black and blue pin cushion by March!
Our spirits are up, and we are keeping a positive outlook. It is still hard being out and around people when all they want to talk about are their kids....I get it...... your kids are the best, your kids are your world.... but we are in agony over trying to have one ourselves, so could you please keep your comments to yourself. But to say that is selfish....I can't take away the joy other people feel because of the sadness that I feel. God did not make me that way. Because if this round does work, I will be the one who thinks their kid is the best!
One thing that has always helped me through stressful situations is exercise..... and as we all know, the CrossFit Open begins next week. This would be my first year in the Masters Division, but I'll have to sit this one out. Our transfer date is set for the second week in March...so I will continue to exercise like a regular person and eat well instead!
So, the emotional roller coaster continues. Pray, hope and believe that it will all work and that we will have a beautiful healthy baby...... but until then, I will continue to jab myself everyday in the hopes that it works this time!!
......... To be continued!
