I've been swimming laps a lot lately. It's great exercise and, more importantly, it's quiet time to myself. There is something so fun about floating around in the water. Plus, I hate the repetition of lifting weights and I hate, hate, hate sweating.
You know when you're about to dive into a pool, you have that moment where you suck in a last breath? That's what I feel like now getting ready to do IVF. There's so much that will happen quickly in the next few weeks but I'm at the point where I'm just waiting for it all to start.
I got my period yesterday and will have a FSH blood test tomorrow morning. Then I go back to the main office on the 12th for scans, blood work, and paper work. Assuming everything looks good, I'll start the Lupron around July 23. I'm disappointed because I thought I'd start the meds in the next week or so. I didn't realize they still had more blood tests to do. If I had known, I would have tried to get that all taken care of last cycle but I guess you can only plan so far ahead.
