I am about to go take my first Lupron shot. I am so excited, although I know I am going to be let down. It is a tiny insulin needle, and I am taking 10 tiny units of it. I guess it is symbolic though. Like the Iditarod in Alaska - they ceremonial start is in Anchorage, although that is not when the actual race starts. It signifies the beginning of something great, rich in tradition, a true competitors sport, something that only the strong can survive. Kind of like IVF. Well this shot is my ceremonial start. The real competition doesn't begin until August 2nd, when I start stims, but today I am letting my body know that my team (David, my RE, and me) aren't giving up without a fight.
David and I were married in June of 2006. I am a stay-at-home mom after a long struggle with Infertility. We have been lucky on our first and second cycles of In-Vitro Fertilization (IVF)! We have a daughter, Paige Madeline, born April 23, 2009. Our twin boys, Jack David and Braley James, came on November 16, 2010.
We enjoy OU football games, family time, exercising, eating, and praising God for our wonderful blessings! Thanks for following along!
