I wore this outfit on Saturday to watch a golf tournament in Doral with Matt. We had the most beautiful weather on Saturday. You can probably see in a couple of my pictures that my shoulders got soooo sunburnt. I put on sunscreen but I didn't do a very good job, so I have really red patchy spots all over my shoulders! Between my surgery and Diesel passing away we have had a really rough couple of months. I have just been so sad about loosing Diesel, so it was so nice to spend the day together outside having fun!
Speaking of my surgery I just wanted to do a quick IVF update since I haven't really mentioned it all in the last few weeks.
I am all healed from my surgery! I wanted to give my body a little time to heel before starting my first IVF cycle so the last few weeks we have just been waiting. Last Friday we officially started our first cycle. Which for me is just starting by taking birth control. So I went to the doctor Friday to start my pills. They did a ultra sound and blood work. They count my follicles with the ultra sound and do blood work to make sure my estrogen was low and all of that fun stuff.
My Ultra sound showed that I had 42 follicles... Which is a ton, most people don't even have that many after they stimulate! They said they very rarely see women coming in to start there cycle with that many follicles. You would think this is a good thing and maybe it is but It puts me at a higher risk to be hyper stimulated. Which has been my number one fear about doing IVF from the beginning. I am so afraid of getting hyper stimulated. So I am really freaking out (because I am a hypochondriac). My nurse told me I am probably going to get hyper stimulated which really just freaked me out! They also say because I am so small (and have so many follicles) that I am going to be really bloated and probably have more pain then the average person. Which is just great! I am going to be on a low does of medicine and monitored very closely but I am so nervous and dreading the whole process.
So until the end of the month I am just waiting and taking birth control. I will Start stimulation at the end of March and that is going to be the hard part. I know when this is all over it will be worth it. But because I am a hypochondriac I having a hard time thinking about that. I am just trying not to talk myself out of this because I am so scared and such a wimp!
