Preparing For Our FET

We have had some set backs and are doing our FET later than expected but we are thankful to be doing this! Preparing is always a long process and currently I am done with birth control and am taking estrace twice a day. I go back for another ultrasound in a little over a week to check on my ovaries and make sure they look okay. Then I will start taking Progesterone injections. Intramuscular!! I was fine doing SQ injections in my abdomen but IM injections I am a little less fond of. If it is what I need to do I will toughen up though.....I have to!! This time Jarod will have to give them to me so we will be paying a visit to YouTube before then to get him ready:) I think he is a little nervous about doing it but Dr. J said, I will have to do the injections for atleast 19 days. Oh boy!

If everything looks okay they plan on doing our FET sometime in March. I really do hope this will be our time! This transfer has so much meaning to it. I feel if we don't get pregnant I don't know if I will want to go through anymore treatments. I never knew when I would get to that point but I think I am there. It does scare me but I have my trust in God! Jarod has already been to that point for a while and has been so supportive in giving me my time. It took me longer and I feel that we have done all we could do and now the rest is up to HIM. One of the hardest things I have ever done is letting go.

I am just going to take this all in because I have no idea what the future holds. These next couple months will be some of the most important months in our life.
