It is crazy how excited one gets when thinking of an apt that is hopefully going to yield positive results! I am looking forward to my apt in the morning. Good thing that it is first thing so I don’t have to wait all day! 

Tonight I started the Luveris and so it was 3 needles. You have to mix the Luveris and the trickiest part is drawing all the liquid and not getting air bubbles. I was concentrated quite hard! 

Happy Hump Day!

Hope that everyone is having a great day today!

Had an U/S and B/W this morning and I will start with the good news … jerk face (also known as cyst) has gone down in size. Other good news is … follies did indeed grow, so the increase of meds worked. The not so great news is … I only have 3 measurable follies right now.

So … meds will stay status quo for today and then tomorrow I will continue the same but add in Luveris. So I am praying that my body kicks it up a notch and starts to grow the small follies!

Until Friday my friends …


CD4 – Happy Monday!

Hope that everyone had  a great weekend and if you are in Southern Ontario, you are enjoying the warmer temps.

Today is cycle day 4 and went for B/W and U/S this morning and my little follies are just that … little! Ha! That is okay, we will get them going.

I still have about the same amount on each side and the biggest one on the right is 8.7mm and the biggest on the left is 8.1mm.

And, we have named my little cyst jerk face. He is the friend that you didn’t invite to the party but came anyway. He is sitting at 13.4mm, he can leave at any time!

I am staying on the same amount of Lupron and heading up to 400 of GonalF! 400!? Good lord!

Next update/apt is Wednesday morning.


Today’s apt!

This morning I had my baseline ultrasound and bloodwork, the cyst was still present in my left ovary but it had gone down a little bit.

They were able to see about 5 follicles in my right ovary and 6-7 in my left ovary so we are off to a good start.

I just got the call that I am ready to rock and roll! Tonight is Lupron as usual and the tomorrow I will be decreasing my Lupron injection and starting the GonalF. Next apt is on Monday to see how things are progressing.

So for now … grow follies, grow!

Have a super fabulous weekend everyone!

No point crying over spilt milk …

…or over Lupron in this case.

This morning, I was getting my probiotic out of the fridge and my brand new vial of $230 Lupron went crashing down onto the tile floor. After a cry and a little panic and a little calming down I realized there is no point in crying over it. Yes I have to spend even more money, yes it is a pain because there is a shortage of Lupron, but there is nothing I can do. So I got up, brushed myself off, picked up the thousands of little glass shards and went about my day.

It is funny how the little things set you off when you are full of hormones and so much is riding on something.
