So Starts IVF #1

the hag is here, we are on the road to IVF #1.

However we have hut another road bump. It is likely I don't absorb folic acid. Dang.

So I figured this out on my own. You see, because of m Crohn's disease I had a bowel resection, after said bowel resection I had to go on vitamin B12 injections(once monthly) for the rest of my life. Just yesterday I was thinking, hmm folate is a B vitamin, I wonder what part of the body absorbs it. You guessed it...same part of the bowel that I don't have anymore, g.r.e.a.t!

The ONLY reason I was thinking of this was because of the MTHFR, and the increased dose of folic I am on, I thought to myself, I wonder how we know if I am even getting enough...and I thought, hmm.

Anyway, so I will talk to RE about this tomorrow, I wonder if this is a reason as well for not getting pregnant again, and it looks like i will need to be on folic acid injections....add that to the list of needles just to TRY to get pregnant...sheesh....this is exhausting.

I feel like the last few weeks have been a huge JOKE on me. like what else can the universe dump on my head right now....anything? (BTW Universe....I am not asking for anything to be dumped..PUHLEASE)

  1. Oh honey... Sometimes you just want to shake your first at the world and say "SCREW YOU!". It's just not fair.

    I'm sorry about yet another bump in the road. I really hope that it flattens for you soon...
