Nervous and excited

I started Lupron on 12/30. No side effects yet that I've noticed. I'm hoping the Bravelle and Menopur go the same way (start those on 1/11). I took Bravelle by itself for one cycle but I don't really remember if I had any side effects. IVF is the week of the 21st and I'm excited to get it done with but nervous to find out if it doesn't work. I really don't want to go through this again. DH and I decided to only have two eggs fertilized and not freeze any. That is the only part of this whole thing our insurance doesn't cover and we would be looking at about $1000 to freeze for two years. Right now we just don't have the money for that and it is cheaper to do the retrieval all over again with our insurance. Anyway, I'll stop rambling now.

I wish you all the best with this cycle. It was my 6th ivf that gave me my daughter. I'm hoping you get it on your first shot. Keep us updated!
