they've started to arrive

I got my first box of meds (i.e. injections) today. Actually, this is only for one of the medications I'll be taking. It's hard to believe that something so little can cost so much!! 
I'm starting to feel a bit....well, I'm not sure what the correct word is. I guess anxious would be the best word. I'm not too worried about all of the belly injections. Not yet anyway. Cause those needles are pretty small in comparison to the progesterone injections. Those ones....they're a bit bigger. And I start those on the day of egg retrieval and continue on them (God willing) until 11 weeks of pregnancy.

I'm kind of a 'delayed' kind of worrier. When I'm in the thick of something I'm pretty calm and handle things. I'm not a freak out kind of mom when my kid gets hurt. I run in and take care of business. And I've had experience between my son breaking his leg at 4 yrs old and my daughter being in the hospital for 8 days last year. And I know...I can handle it. 

It's after when I start to stress. Or finally get the chance to break down. 

So when we made this big decision to move forward I felt great. I mean great. I knew it was the right decision and I was just ready to get started. Now it's all coming down to it. I met with the nurse yesterday and went over all the meds (all 5 of them) and when I'll be taking them and when I'll be coming in the office (a lot). Let's just say that starting on the 15th I will be seeing a lot of the staff there!


And I'm ok with all of it. Just a little anxious. It's a lot to take in. I'll share some of that next week and you can get a better grasp of it. It's a lot.

But if the end result is a baby (or two!) then it is all worth it. Actually, it's worth it regardless :)

Children are PRICELESS!!! and I truely believe that it is in God's hands and what is meant to be will.... you are so deserving of another child 1 or 2 or 3 whatever the plan is... I will continue to pray for you and wish you and your family the best... Gods blessing on you all.....

Hope all is goes well and you have a beautiful healthy baby or two to cuddle by this time next year! What an exciting and emotional journey to be on!!(We battled a similar journey to become parents but after 10 years we have two beautiful daughters.)

Do not be anxious...do not be anxious. Sometimes saying that helps me. The reward will be priceless.
