I can't believe it's been two weeks since I last posted.
My how time flies.
Well, I'm alive.
I feel pretty rotten.
Little blue pills are not my friend.
I've been taking 4 MG of estradiol per day as of Monday.
I'd ask all you veteran IVFers if that is a lot. But I already know the answer. When I picked up my prescription, the pharmacist had to go ask the other pharmacist if he was sure the dosage was correct. He responded that he was alarmed as well so he called my prescribing doctor who confirmed that is indeed the dosage he'd like me on.
I'm experiencing every symptom in the book. Nausea. Upset stomach. Headaches. Endo pain.
Okay, enough with my pity party. At least, we're moving forward. I start my ganirelex injections tomorrow and then stims a week after that. Yikes.
To pass the time, I've been...working. And um, working. Unfortunately, I feel so disconnected from blogland because I haven't had any time to read or write. But I'm hoping things start to get better soon. We hired a new coordinator at my office so I'm hoping to have some breathing room.
I was finally able to get some "me + hubby" time over the Labor Day weekend.
Here are the highlights:
1. I completed my IVF wish board!
As I mentioned here, it was my aunt's idea so that I can better visualize a successful outcome for this cycle. Yes, this is the very same aunt that saved me during the Day 3 blood draw fiasco. She rocks!
To create the board, I searched the Internet for images that I loved that are related to babies and pregnancy. They are the things that I wish for and dream of....that I hope come true through this IVF.
