My cycle started on Sunday so no positive test for us this time. So the start of my cycle means that I scheduled my SHG(Feb 2). Oh how I really dislike those.  We have also decided on which stimulate injection we are going to be taking. Gonal-F.  We have done some research and we like this one better.  I'm glad that I call the insurance company back if I use the speciality mail order pharmacy the injections are totally covered except for the $25 copay.  Thank god he had answered our prayers on that one because if we don't use the mail order pharmacy they aren't covered and we would have to pay out of pocket and that price is crazy. So with my next start of my next cycle which should be after valentines day I'll start poking myself not looking forward to that but if what I have to do I'll do it.

Well I'm breathing alot easier  tonight. I'm glad that I called my insurance company back this afternoon. It turns out that the inject able stimulate drugs that I will be put on soon are covered by the insurance if I send them to a speciality pharmacy. Praise god!!  Taking them will be only if I don't get a positive test next week. fingers crossed that I do. Have any of you taken Follistim or Gonal-F before? Please tell me what you think what you liked or didn't like about them. Any help would be great  Now if the inject ables do not work we will be onto IVF. Now that is something that isn't covered at all by the insurance.  So that's where we are in this next journey

Well my appointment on Jan 12 at the RE didn't go well at all. Yes I knew that we had talked about the whole shot thing. BUT I was really hoping that we wouldn't have to go down that road.  So I have to get another SHG. YUCK this is like my eighth one and they suck if you have ever had one you know.  Along with the SHG I have to start taking a pill called DHEA. My RE thinks that this pill will help with my ovarian reserve produce better, because it doesn't work hardly at all.  SO once my cycle starts I get the SHG, we decide which shot we want to take which will be Follistim or Gonal-F.  I'm still undecided which one we want to do.  Have any of you done any of these? Advice please? Then we will get a trigger shot as well.  I'm so lost and frustrated grrrrrrrrrrrrrrr.   So thats where we are at this point.

There are so many things that I want to write about.  So please bare with me.  The holidays were a world wind they sure went by so fast at least I thought so. Now its the new year already 2012.  We celebrated new years eve with family. We made lots of food and played some board games and also some just dance. If any of you have ever played just dance it a great workout.  I have just dance and just dance 2, I had gotten my sister just dance summer hits and it's a blast I recommend to try it if you haven't. I've spent the last week in going back and forth to the hospital. Jeremy's gram is there so I've been there with her for 8 hrs a day then home for about 1 hr and then back for another 4 or so hours. I'm so tired that is an understatement.  I also worked this weekend I haven't slept much at all so 16 hours of work with like 5 hours of sleep equals fail.  So after work today I was about to get about a 3 hour nap I feel better.  I partly feel that I haven't been sleeping do to stress and worrying.  I'm worried about Jeremy's gram. Plus I go back to the RE on thrusday. This is an appointment to talk about some ferlitly drugs. EEKKK. I'm so nevrous and scared all at the sametime. I'll update after the appointment.    I've been told that 2012 is going to "our" year.  I'm really starting to feel that it is. Fingers crossed and lots of prayers. 
Jeremy and I
