Here we go again...

I had my CD3 appointment on Friday. I almost didn't make it due to the WORST cramps of my life. I was literally crawling from the shower to my husband to ask him to get me 800mg of ibuprofen down stairs. From what I read on forums and blogs was that periods were lighter on injectable meds.... NOT FOR ME! Once the ibuprofen kicked in, I barely made it to my 6:45am appointment. I asked Dr. D. why it was so bad and he replied that they got my lining so thick that it causes a heavier period. I wish I knew that before! There is a lot I didn't know... I am finding out.

So this cycle I have a new attitude and I feel much more prepared (physically and emotionally). I began injections on Friday night of 75iu again. Dr. D. said he wanted to continue me on the same schedule as last month because it "was a good cycle."

Here is what I use to do the injections every night:

Follistim Pen, needle, alcohol wipe, gauze pad, needle disposal container, and follistim pen case

Hi! I know that we do not know eachother but I saw your blog listed on another website forum. My husband and I just went through fertility testing and are starting shots next month. I was reading some of your posts and hoping that we could connect via email. I think there is something to be said to having someone else to talk to in a similiar situation.
