Step 1 is done!

The first step in our IVF process has begun! My cycle started on Thursday. Then on Saturday, we had a sono... it was super fast. He took pictures of what things should look like normally. This visit, we met with Dr. Escobar and he was very nice. That night, I was supposed to start birth control. We dropped off the prescription at walgreens. Later, I asked my husband to check on when the pharmacy closed. He said 10:00. We went to dinner and then stopped by to pick them up, and they were closed! I tried not to panic... went home and started calling all the walgreens nearby. Thank goodness we live in Dallas! I found one that was open late, so we transferred the prescription and picked it up.  Whew! I was like... I know I'm not messing this up already haha.  It's been almost 3 years since I've taken birth control... feels so weird to start them again.

I also ordered some fertility yoga dvd's and an organizer for all the ivf meds. I'll post pictures of that later once we get our shipment.

Right now, I'm trying to change my way of thinking. I've had the mind set of this is never going to work for us, something is wrong with me, I'm not meant to be a mom thoughts for too long now. I'm trying to change those to this could actually work for us, I could be pregnant really soon, we will have actual embryos that are from us! so amazing.

Did I tell yall I started acupuncture? well I did! and I'm going twice a week. It makes me feel so calm and relaxed. I'm also eating avocados like their chocolate. I'm hoping that the yoga, acupuncture, and diet help me feel better about the whole process.

I go back on Thursday for a trial transfer and injection teaching class. Ill post about that next time : )

Here's a picture of my baby now...
