Ok, as if infirtility is not enough... now we have to go through a true medical procedure, and endure the side effects associated with it! My advise as a two time IVF-er is to just go day by day. You kind of have to go numb, and say ok.. so I might experience some yucky side effects, but the pay off is more than worth it!! one that was particularly hard for me was weight gain. The pill made me gain weight, so there I was feeling the ups and downs of the IVF process, and fat to top it off!! all of this at times can seem like a cruel joke. We have to remain strong in our choice to accomplish this!! our goal is to become pregnant, and like any goal, there is prep work to be done. Along with preparing ourselves, comes the responsiblilty to be good to ourselves and one another. We are all here for each other through all the hurdles we have to jump. I feel so lucky to have you all!! So.... in conclusion, lets get ready to beat these side effects, and get the BFP we are all longing for!! we can do it!!!!
