IVF Treatment

My wife began taking the medication prescribed to her by her Dr. I’m amazed what Science can do. She’s in touch with a bunch of other women on this FB group who are receiving the same treatment. We’re constantly driving back and forth between Ft. Drum, NY and Syracuse, NY. On top of that I’ve been driving back and forth between Connecticut and New York. I’ve must have driving more than 5,000 miles (estimation) total in the month of September alone and I’ve enjoyed every minute of it.
She’s relaxing right now and in a good frame of mind. This is all new to me but I know for sure that she has to be in as positive state of mind, constantly. I’m getting used to it now though and am just enjoying the joy radiating from her. Hopefully, these next few days will bring more good news. So many other women are getting pregnant so that to me in itself is encouraging. We’re shooting for twins. We initially wanted to choose the sex (male) but opted out of that. I think it’s for the best.

Ohhhhh good luck! I had to do IVF with my second daughter after 4 consecutive miscarriages. I had an amazing RE in NY. It was a lot of work, shots, emotions, but worth every single second. I was really hoping for twins, but just got one extra nigh one hahaa. I was on a support forum for years called Fertility Friend. It has charting and all that good stuff. I have a grandfathered free membership because I joined in 2002 :astonished: So, I’m not sure what it costs. But man we loved to post our pee sticks. I kept all those companies in business for years. My ocd had me taking like 10 a day :joy:

With my first I wanted a boy so bad, but hate to admit that I was disappointed when I found out I was having a girl. It’s still a running joke in my family. Plus, my oldest is the girliest girl on earth too. Now, I can’t even imagine not having girls. I’m a girl mom and was hoping for another girl when I went through fertility treatments. My kids are 10 years apart. I had secondary infertility.

Enjoy the journey. And when your kids are teenagers and being brats. You’re wife is going to be like “I treated my body like a damn pin cushion for this shit?!?!” :joy:

Congrats on the journey!

Thank you all for the Love! I feel like a person who is hosting a play. I’m constantly observing how everyone around me is going about there day. I have this sense of calmness over myself mixed in with a confidence that is contagious. This all would not have happened if I were drinking.

So today, my Readiness NCO called me and basically did me a solid by cancelling my School for the month of October. My wife and I went to our IVF appointment and there are 2 eggs that are ready to be retrieved. Tonight, she’s going to administer the medication to get that going. I’ll get to be here with her the whole time now and that just makes me so excited. I know she wanted me to be there with her. I know this is the right thing to do. I’ll comfort her the whole way.

Good for you Carlos. The extraction is a very painful process and she will need support; I spent a few days at home caring for my wife afterward.

It sounds like you have a good opportunity here to be there for her, with school being cancelled :innocent:

Thanks for the heads up. I’ll definitely keep that in mind when it happens Wednesday. @Englishd , Thursday she will be doing a few things at the treatment center in the AM which will take some time for her to do. You want to grab a bite to eat?

She’s been telling me a lot of stories on this FB group she’s in with that particular IVF facility. There are a lot of women who are getting pregnant. Twins, triplet’s, one even has quad’s coming. It just blows my mind away
