A Reason Why No One Does IVF for Fun . . .

Here is a list of my meds for these two months:

Birth control pills
Low-dose aspirin
Valium (I don't mind this one)

I'm going to be tacky and also let you know the estimated cost of these meds:


Yep, I'll let you absorb that one for a moment . . . It took me a few months to be okay with that!

Now, most of these include a side effect of "weight gain." Here is the before picture of my ass:


It's not a size 2 ass, but it's still a pretty nice one and I work out regularly to keep it that way. I'm going to reserve a shred of dignity and never post an after photo. So if you see me around and think to yourself "wow, how did her ass get so huge?" you can now assure yourself that it wasn't donuts, it's for a good cause. Really! I'm serious!

On a side note I will mention that I absolutely adore donuts, so maybe it might be partially the fault of donuts.


  1. WOW, I can't believe you've had to take so many drugs! I don't know how you keep it all straight! And it's never the donuts ... always blame the drugs!! :)

  2. That looks so ad when you type it all like hat. I am so looking forward to Good luck to you! I hope it is all worth it in the end!

  3. Wow...haven't seen that list in awhile! I know this sounds crazy, but it sounds like you got some decent prices. Our "drugs" were out of this world cost-wise:( We did 4 IVFs)...the costs of meds were so inflated and discouraging...I love your humor, Ashley! You have a great attitude and I wish you the best...may success be yours:)...hugs...Lori (resolve bb)...(hope it's okay to come here and read and comment...I love your blog:)...and want to encourage you whenever possible...)

  4. Hey Ashley,
    I am we have a lot in common. My name is also Ashley, I have PCO and am going through my first IVF. I am thinking of starting a blog. I don't know if it can be as cute and funny as yours. How are you taking the low dose aspirin? My Dr. didn't perscribe it but I was just wondering.


Thanks for stopping by! Sorry, no anonymous comments, if you can't put your name on it it's just no fun!
