Tara: When did you officially switch to Dr. S from Dr. B? You definitely made the right choice doing so. What stim meds are you on? How did it go yesterday starting them?
Amy: So awesome to see you too! I know, I can't believe that Nathan is getting close to 2! Congratulations on awaiting Baby #2 Wow 9 weeks! I'm sorry you were sick I'm sure the tiredness is leftovers from that and being PG just adds to it. I think you're doing all the right things coping with your anxiety. Will you be going to a new counselor now? Insurance stinks when they change coverage to providers
Brie: HUGS to you too love!

Naomi- Welcome to the group! Congrats on your pregnancy! First baby or first girl? Super exciting either way
Nicole- We started to make the switch in August when I had a phone consult with Dr. S's office. We had a consult with her in person in October and got the ball rolling from there. We took a few months off with Dr. B over the Summer which was nice. I started 20U of hCG and 375IU of follistim yesterday. Both are SQ and went fine. The follistim stung a little bit, but not bad. I didn't have too much difficulty giving them to myself. Gave myself the you just have to poke yourseld pep talk
We had a big friendsgiving yesterday at our house and are hosting another on on Thursday for family. Kinda crazy! It went well and we had a lot of fun. Stimulation meds started with no problem. Woo hoo, Becoming more and more real we are doing this now!

Amy- You're funny...eh you do what you gotta do I guess. It's not the easiest to poke yourself but the sub Q injections are little needles. I really hope that the anxiety isn't like it was before especially given your new insurance doesn't cover it. What a bummer.

Alexx- We are doing it right now. I started the stim meds on Sunday. I don't know exactly when the ER (egg retrieval) or the transfer will be until we are farther into it though.
