IVF Update - Molly

Just a quick IVF update. 

We are on schedule for a transfer date of February 8th.
It was a week different than what they originally thought, but I can thank my period for that.

Where am I in the schedule of things?

I am in the middle of birth control - yuck.
21 days of birth control. 
I have one more week.

This week (on Thursday), I start Lupron injections.
Lupron will make me go into a brief "menopause".
We don't need my body ovulating on it's own (like it really matters).

I have ordered my drugs, and thanks to the generosity of others, I did not have to order Estrogen patches or progesterone suppositories.
That saved me some major dollars.

In the meantime, I am back on the whole30. And hoping to make it more of a whole45-60.
I have done some reading and research (and have received some great advice from other IVF pals) that a body free from gluten, sugar (added) and dairy can have more success at implantation.
Also, I have been told to eat a whole pineapple - core and all after implantation.

So I am going to do it - with my feet in the air.
Core and all.

So there you go - 4 weeks left.

Goal: eat right, workout a ton and have no worries.

It is what it is and it will be what it will be.

The whole pineapple?? That's kind of funny, but I'd do it too if I were you. Yummy!

Thanks for the inspiring quotes! I need them.

Praying for you always!

Just a small warning- I've heard that pineapple core can cause a miscarriage too. Have NO idea if it's true or not, but you may want to look into it.

Good luck! Praying for success for you!
