IVF Appointments

Erika is right about needing to also focus on other things besides loss. In the spirit of moving on with life. Here's the scoop on our latest visit to Dartmouth this past Tues.
You gotta love them for making our 3 hour drive worth while. They really pack in the appointments. We saw the genetic counselor, embryologist and got our injection training. They teach you how to mix the medication in vials and how to handle the needles. I feel a lot better about the shots. I will be able to give almost all of them to myself. They have these itty bitty needles to use. Tom will have to give me the big giant one. Okay maybe I am exaggerating a little. But it seemed huge poised in his hand. He was really paying attention to the instructions and practiced several times. I think we'll do fine. They even gave me a folder with everything spelled out and I can follow along with each appointment. They are so amazing at helping us. For now my big box of meds waits in the guest room and a couple of packs are in the refrig. I am anxious to start in a few weeks.
