So far, so good. My levels are where they want them to be. Transfer is scheduled for Monday at NOON! I will check in at 10:15 am for blood work and then acupuncture. Transfer at 12pm followed by another round of acupuncture.
They will be giving me a Valium so looks like Jason will be driving home.
Side effects? The progesterone hasn't started to bother me yet. I do notice a bit of water weight, but nothing that is too bad. I am sure by the 8th week (fingers crossed!), it will.
The estrogen, well that's another story. I did an estradiol test (blood test for estrogen) on Tuesday. It was supposed to be around 300 and it came in at 94. Yikes, not good. So they called in a prescription for Estrace (estrogen in a pill form).
Between the patches (still on 4) and now the pills, I'm in rare form. A LOT OF ESTROGEN IS PUMPING THROUGH MY BODY.
Side effects? I thought I was home free, but between yesterday and today, I have been a total B.
I'm just on edge. I can feel it build up inside of me and I don't know why or what it really is. Once it starts, it just keeps building. I don't freak out or anything, but I am edgy, even mean and my poor husband is taking the brunt of it.
I don't know if it's the drugs...or if it's me. I am hoping that it's the drugs and that it passes soon.
Until then......I'm sorry.
