Ready, Set….

Well friends, operation “get pregnant, stay pregnant, make it to the end without bed rest, pre-term labor and no NICU stay” is underway.

Cycle day 1. I start estrogen patches aka birth control. I didn’t know that birth control patches existed but then again why would I? They look like this.

$100 damn dollars for these things, with insurance. BLAH! Howeverapplying these lil babies sure as hell beats sticking needles into my stomach twice a a day. HOLLA!!


I put 2 of them on and change them every 84 hours. My next  appointment is Wednesday when they do whatever they do to see if they are working too well or not well enough.

Shane and I both have to take a 5 day antibiotic to make sure we are healthy as a whistle come transfer day. Probably should go get the flu-shot too, although I have been saying that for 5 years now.

  1. Ignorant and confused 😉 Why would you take birth control if trying to conceive? Otherwise woo ! Let the journey being!

  2. Well for the first fresh transfer they gave me BCP so they could take charge of my cycle and prepare me for injections. This time around I think it’s to take charge of my cycle and thicken the uterine lining. They will adjust the BCP amount according to how the lining looks. I will go in weekly until things are A-OK. 😉
