You get the Turtle or the Rabbit with me, no middle..

So, by the title, you may all be a bit confused. Well, last time we tried IVF, I reacted too well to the medications, and had to cancel before we could actually get to a procedure. This time they cut the dose of one medication in half, and so now, things are progressing very slowly. My blood levels are lower than they expected which means my body is not springing into action like they thought it would. So tomorrow I go in for my 5th dr appointment day in a row. This has been quite the experience. And through all the frustration, the tears, and the anger, I would do it again in a heart beat. Mike gets this face, whenever we are talking about the next week (retrieval & transfer), that just makes my heart jump. He is so excited, and so ready to move to these next steps. We have really enjoyed getting to know each other all over again. And if this is the way we have to go to be parents, BRING IT ON!! We are ready

And it starts again

Mike and I were up at 530 Sunday morning to start the crazy process all over again. I took my first 10 unit shot of Lupron. I am not sure whether to be excited or scared. I choose excited because scared just makes me nervous.
