Day 13 on Lupron and everything is going really good. Besides the food poisoning thing Friday & Saturday (no fun), I can’t complain. Still doing light exercise, nothing too strenuous. I’ve honestly just been taking it easy for the most part. The biggest thing I have noticed are HOT FLASHES!! I’m not looking forward to menopause! We have crazy cold weather outside and with these hot flashes from the Lupron I have the ceiling fan on, some times the window is cracked and a stand alone fan blowing on me at night…..my husband thinks I’m crazy. Every morning I get up he is bundled up under the blankets. 😉 But it does help cool things off.
I went in today for an ultrasound to check the size of my ovaries, look for cysts and do some blood work. I have to say the office where I am doing my monitoring is anything but friendly. The lady at the front counter never even looked up at me when I walked in. She just stared at her computer. It really does make a difference to walk into a place where someone actually smiles at you or says good morning. I mean it was 7am. Hormonal or not I think its common courtesy and let’s face it, every woman walking into that office is probably in some way, shape or form HORMONAL! So, please smile at us, thank you 🙂 I just needed to get that out-of-the-way.
And thank you Justine, you rock!! 🙂
Anyway, so everything looks good, no cysts so we are moving forward. Starting the Gonal F injections tonight along with steroid, antibiotic and still taking the wonderful Lupron. I will be attempting the Gonal F injections tonight on my own (hubby is working). They are a little different from my other injections so it should be interesting. I have a good friend waiting by her phone tonight to help out for when I have a blonde moment 🙂 We are flying out to New York on the 16th for egg retrieval and transfer and will be flying back on the 24th. We have family coming to visit and I get to see a very good friend who has helped me so much through all of this! 🙂 Everything is happening really fast now! I have waited for this week for a long time and now that’s it’s here we are just really anxious and excited but also cautiously optimistic. Regardless, everything happens for a reason and I have to remind myself of that.
