Invasive fertility tests: 6 (HSG, SHG, hysteroscopy, endometrial biopsy, mock embryo transfer, pituitary MRI)

New things we've found wrong with me from said tests: 5 (high prolactin, high TSH, blocked fallopian tube, endometritis, PCOS)

Blood draws done in the past 2 weeks: 6

Blood draws where they had to stick me more than once: 3 (on one occasion it took 4 pokes. Nice going, LabCorp.)

Medications I'm taking daily: 7 (surely this is excessive, especially since I haven't even started cycling yet.)

Voicemails left for my coordinating nurse: haven't even tried to count.

My ability to focus on anything other than this FET cycle: negligible.


  1. Sounds like so much fun (said in my most sarcastic voice.) My sister is going through this too right now. She's started the ultrasounds and egg retrieval should be the first week of May. IVF is very demanding! I'm praying this all works out well for both of you!

  2. Good luck. Thinking of you.

  3. Oh you poor thing! And I so sympathize with you about the blood draw sticks. They always have to stick me 2 or 3 times. Sometimes they have to get a second or even third person to try! Crappy veins.

    Hopefully all this will result in a beautiful child in a year or so, though, and will be so worth it.

  4. Good luck making it through the waiting. It willlllll happen!!!


Give it to me straight!
