Updates! As of Monday morning I have 14 growing follicles. 7 are great, 2 are middle and 5 need to catch their little butts up! This is totally normal though with the low dose Dr. M. started me on. As of Monday night we are now up to 3 shots a day. 2 viles of Menopur (in one shot), 1 Follistim with the addition of one Ganirelix shot (this will keep me from ovulating).
We also had to do a mad rush to get extra meds delivered because I did not have enough. WTF. Especially on Monday's holiday. No stress, really. HA! Luckily, the extra meds we needed were delivered today and we are good to go.
I did not have to go into CCRM this morning for labs and ultrasound, however, tomorrow I am back for more! Hopefully, the 5 follicles have caught up to speed and I can get a better idea where we go from here. We might have to continue the shots for awhile longer, but again, I hope we can stop soon and we are a go for retrieval on Sunday, 2/26- as planned on my calendar. Again, all up in the air and decided by Dr. M.
I am still feeling ok (mind over matter- still pains in my left side, awful headaches from the Menopur, some nausea, no real moods swings) but quite frankly SICK of all the shots. I dread them. I just want this to be done. It sucks actually. I digress though.... I know this is all for the bigger picture, but can I get some wah wah time? My tummy is done- sick and tired of it.
My Husband Nurse Joe still shows up each morning and night with a smile on his face, gives me hugs and kisses & mad support. I cannot begin to thank him enough (and Molly for those sweet homemade Smores that make him smile- o face- what?).
And to ALL of you that read. Friends, family, silent followers, people we have yet to meet, those of you who pass this blog along. THANK YOU, does not even express how much I (we) appreciate YOU!
