Quick update

Nothing huge to report, but I did get my estradiol checked on Monday and it's satisfying low, so I was able to start estradiol valerate injections last night (I do them Tuesday/Friday nights, this week and next). And I'm all done with Lupron - yay!

Figuring out my packing list for meds and needles, since I leave on Saturday for my vacation in Mexico - I think half my bag is going to be IVF-related. My sister in law has kindly agreed to do my IM shots.

As I've mentioned, I'm largely off twitter these days, since I'm on such a long path for IVF #5. But I hopped on yesterday and was devastated to hear of the sad news @LeLesMe and @MaternalTurtle are dealing with. Love and hugs to both of them.


  1. Glad to hear you're moving forward! Have fun in Mexico!!! Ah yes, traveling with the bag o' meds - good times...

  2. Have a GREAT trip to Mexico!

  3. wishing you much luck with this first ER
    Have a wonderful time in Mexico!!!

  4. I know it's such a long road ahead, but one step at a time and you will get there. Have a wonderful time in Mexico!

  5. I too am braving IVF. Recently I have turned to blogs for the support I am lacking IRL. I'm the lone infertile among friends and family. I am writing to you because I recently came across your blog and we have lots in common:) I have had 3 miscarriages, 4 IVF cyles and I am doing PGD with cycle 5 at the end of summer...oh, and I live in Las Vegas. I do not go to the Sher institute but I have always heard wonderful things! Good luck to you! I have 20 vials of 75 iu Luveris I planned on donating and wanted to know if you are interested. It's completely sealed, individually wrapped, the experation is 10/2011. I don't need it and it will break my heart for it to go to waste. I will even pay for shipping:)Let me know if you are interested. My email address is
