I am a mom to amazing twin girls, a wife, and I work full time. I battled infertility for 2 years and over the course of treatments, a twin pregnancy, and raising twins I managed to gain about 80 lbs. I’ve lost about 50 lbs so far and would like to lose another 50 in my quest to become a hot mama.

Viagra, Viagra everywhere...

If you aren't into TMI....stop here.....





So I started the Viagra suppositories last night.  As you can probably guess there is a really high "leak" rate for these suckers.  I am starting to wonder how much is actually staying in.  It hasn't stopped leaking since last night. SOOOO gross.  The things us IF girls do!

So now along with 2 estrace pills daily, I am also shoving a suppository in my lady business daily.  Whatever happened to just shoving your man's business in there to get pregnant.  Oh how I wish I could go back to the days when I believed that's how babies are made.

  1. Sounds so not fun! I start prometrium suppositories on Saturday and am dreading it. And I so agree about going back to the days when baby making was thought to be so easy. Funny story about that:

    My niece is 7 and she knows that my shots are to help me get pg. I jokingly told her I was going to practice giving her shots and her response:
    "Aunt Jessie! I am only seven!! I am too young to have babies!!" Now she is warped too!!!

  2. Yuck! I always hated the progesterone suppositories ... so messy. Supposedly your body absorbs what it needs though. If it makes you feel any better, tons of my progesterone would come back out and I still had very high levels when they checked my blood. So hopefully the same is true with the Viagra!

    I love your comment of just shoving your man's business up there. I wish!!

  3. Funny thing is I just realized that I've NEVER had to do suppositories of any kind during this IF business. Maybe I'm not a true infertile? Or maybe I'm very lucky?

  4. Seriously!!! DH and I haven't been able to BD for over a MONTH (due to IVF) and Dr. K said at least not until after the heart beat U/S (which isn't for two more weeks). Then MAYBE. Holy crap, are you kidding me? I thought the six week abstinence was supposed to happen AFTER the baby was born? Not on both ends of the deal. My previous RE (did two IVFs with her) only made us wait 2.5-3 weeks (week pre-ER to beta day). But... My new RE has a MUCH (like double) better success rate, so I guess we're abstaining in order to get and now stay pregnant. It's so backwards. (TMI ALERT:) Not that it would be very pretty with all this progesterone in my hooha anyway, lol. The things we do to get pregnant!!
    Good luck! I hope that viagra thickens up your lining nicely :)
