Infertility & IVF Journey
If you're new to this blog post then you may want to start with this blog post first. It details our infertility journey leading up to IVF.
I started stims on February 10th after a quick trip to Victoria for an ultrasound. I would end up going to Victoria again the following Monday, Wednesday, and Friday to check on follicle growth. At my Friday ultrasound I had everything crossed that I would be told I could trigger. I was SOOO exhausted from the fertility drugs. The doctor said one more day... just one more day!
Trigger warning: this article discusses infertility.
I never thought this would happen to me. I knew a little bit about IVF (In Vitro Fertilization), but I didn't know anyone who personally went through it. I would see things on social media about not asking people when they are going to start a family, but I never saw posts from people who were openly struggling. It seemed almost "hush hush" and I want to break that.
