was my estrogen yesterday... a measly 37 (Boo!). Dr. R was a little concerned so they had me come back today to make sure SOMETHING was going on in there. I had some measurable ones on each ovary, THANK GOD, but they were still really little. They ranged from 5mm to 7mm. I had to give more blood today as well, which hurt because she did the same arm as yesterday!. I have been taking 75iu of menopur, 150iu Gonal F and 5iu Lupron. Everything stays the same except he upped my Gonal F to 225. I'm praying they start to grow. The good news is that there aren't too many and they are NOT growing too fast! I'm happy about that.
So... I took some of your advice from yesterday, and did my shots in the belly. It was MUCH better. I iced before the Lupron shot and it went right in (maybe my skin isn't as tough on my belly?). I did the Menopur nice and S-L-O-W and that went well too. It didn't take me 20 minutes this time either. Progress is being made! Thank you!
C is flying out today to Dallas for work. I am going to my parents for the next few days. I am really excited, I love going home. But, we are keeping IVF a secret so its going to be interesting hiding these shots from my mother! On thanksgiving, I hid the Lupron way back in a Tupperware container in the veggie drawer. She didn't see it, but I think she was distracted with all the company over. We'll see if I can get away with it! I'm not good at hiding stuff from my mom :)
My next appt is Thursday... Praying 225iu does the trick!
