Meds, Meds and more Meds

So I have been injecting again since the 8th April – first the Lucrin, then Cetrotide, and since the 22nd, both Cetrotide and Gonal F. Tonight I start the Estropause tablet.

It will all be worth it in the end, when we hold our little miracle or miracles, but right now my tummy feels like a pin cushion.

The last few days I’ve also been more moody and irritable than usual, and with that obviously comes squabbles with hubby – over the silliest things I might add!

I uploaded a picture to Instagram of my meds and what they costed. A whole R 13 000 not covered by medical aid – ouch!

Anyways, through uploading that picture a Facebook acquaintance contacted me saying she’s also struggling to conceive. We ended up chatting more and shared our experiences we have had trying to have a baby.

Opening up to other people, whether strangers or friends, is a good thing – we’re all going through the same struggles of infertility and chances are we all understand each other’s frustrations!

I uploaded that photo to Instagram so that people who are also struggling to conceive can open up to me about it, and hopefully I can help and support them through this difficult emotional roller-coaster.
