Welcome Ladies,
Wishing you both successful cycles, don't worry once you get started cycling, it's amazing the things you accomplish that you thought were impossible, as far as painful tests, the HSG and the saline sono are at the top of the list, other work up test are a piece of cake compared to those. Hope tto get to know you 2 better.

Hi new girls!! I am in the middle of my 2nd ivf cycle. I said 3 yrs ago when my sis-in-law did ivf (and got pg) that "I could never do that" and here I am. I am also THE biggest baby about needles and my own blood and stuff. But after my bfn in June I would've thrown myself right back in again right away if I could've. Like the other girls said, in the beginning you are a little nervous, but mostly about doing the shots right relative to the meds and not wanting to mess up or waste them which they tell you exactly what to do. Just tonight I was doing my shots and screwing a needle back onto the syringe and I thought "boy if my mom could see this she would be impressed" and ya know what? It is empowering, being able to do something that you never thought you could do before.

I'm sure you're both very strong ladies, or you wouldn't be here. You'll be looking back in a few months, hopefully pregnant, thinking "that wasn't so bad". Trust me.

Diane- this is the coolest idea, thanks!! my girlfriend at work what's to get a tattoo to symbolize her three children. I already have two tattoos and don't want anymore so this idea would work for me. They have such pretty crystal beads now and making your own jewelry is the in thing. How could I get my hands on one of those :goddesses of firtility" charms, website maybe. Thanks Stac

Welcome ladies, like everyone else has said, it is not so bad once you get into it. The shots are not bad and it goes by quick, the end result is what we are all hoping for and wishing for and that keeps you going. Good luck to both of you and looking forward to hearing your progress, if you have any questions this is the place to ask them as all the ladies are very knowledgable. Take care.
