Nervous Nellie

Okay, so I want to read everyone's news, and I want to write, I just can't seem to. Went back to work, and ended up taking off a day in my first week back. I'm now on BCP and in 1 week I start the Lupron injections. I'm all kinds of nervous and stressed out, and I don't want to be Debbie Downer. I have to wean myself off the happy meds....and that worries the hell out of me.

I think I'm just overwhelmed and don't know what to say or how to put any of it into words, so still staying fairly quiet. Will try tomorrow to catch up with you guys, though. I need to know what's up in YOUR lives. I miss you...just very apathetic right now. Yell at me to snap out of it! Something! Were you this nervous and freaked going into your first IVF????


  1. I'll let you know in September!
    Otherwise, don't stress about not posting/commenting. These blogs are supposed to alleviate stress, not cause it. Everyone will understand if your absent for a bit.
    Hoping everything goes great with the Lu.pron.

  2. Good luck, sweetie. I know I would be feeling the exact same way. I'm pulling for you.

  3. I know the feeling. I had to taper off my anxiety meds as well. I think I'm doing ok, but do struggle sometimes when my mind worries out of control. I'm eating like a pig too. Very much an emotional eater.

    I've been trying to do stress relief techniques. Meditation, acupuncture, going to the pool, massage, mani/pedi, etc. Anything to keep my mind busy!

    Looking forward to catching up in a bit!

  4. You'll get through it. I was nervous and scared amd excited all at the same time when I did my first IVF. It'll get better girl hang in there and take all the time you need. xoxox

  5. I am probably doing my first one soon and yes, I am absolutely crapping myself. I know what you mean about not wanting to be a downer-but if you need to vent on here please do!!
    Thinking of you :)

  6. Everything is going to be ok, but you are going to get through it and be stronger on the other side. I had my first IVF in March and I distinctly remember instantly crying when I opened my first box of meds. It was so overwhelming and scary and I was calling the doctors office just about every day with little questions and worries. Our first IVF didn't work, but I know I am stronger because of it.
    Going into our second IVF (just started Lupron on Monday), I have different worries, but I know I am strong enough to do it. So are You!

  7. I have BEEN there and being quiet just worked for me until I could talk again. You have a lot to think about and process, let yourself do that...I promise, I WILL BE HERE WHEN YOU FEEL GOOD ENOUGH TO WRITE.

    have a good weekend, and good luck I'm thinking of you!!!!
