What now?

Last night I found blood in my urine and it sent me into complete and total panic mode. What now?! My donor is scheduled to start her stimulating meds on Monday and I'm slated to start Estrace next week too. The last thing I want is blood in my urine or anything else to happen here that could delay my cycle.

First thing this morning I showed up at the clinic to have my RE check me out. It's a UTI - Thank goodness that's all it is. He wants to monitor me going forward for infections and take preventative measures against future UTI's. It could damaging to embryos during transfer.

So here I my office feeling lower bladder pressure, uncomfortable, and edgy. But this too shall pass.

I stink at blogging!

Please be patient as I navigate my way through the world of blogging. I promise I will get it together soon. I'm still figuring out how to post comments and make various changes. :/

I decided to start "Diary" because I realized I'm not alone. There are many of us suffering through similar fertility issues - we just don't talk about it. For several reasons, many of us wish to protect our anonymity. For me, I'm undecided as to disclosure, so aka D-IVFGirl will work for now.

At times please expect this blog to be raw with emotion. I want to be true to the experience. It will certainly serve as a forum for my "hormonal" ranting when meds start. lol! And, expect some sarcastic humor here and there.

My hope is that this blog is used as a platform for sharing or simply a source for comfort for women living with fertility issues, entertaining the idea of DIVF, currently in a DIVF cycle, or post DIVF - or anyone else sensitive to the subject of fertility.

To this end, welcome to "Diaryof a Donor EGG IVF Girl"! And I invite you to share my journey toward finding my bliss!
