First Day of Stims – the 411

First Day of Stims - the 411

Today was my first day of stims. While cameras for my new reality series were rolling, I watched the instructional video my fertility clinic has on the website, mixed all of the meds, and injected myself.

My clinic has me combining the Lupron, Gonal-F, and Menopur. I did all three in one injection and then injected myself with Lovenox and took the Prednisone (oral).

The injections, after mixing and drawing the meds, was a breeze. It did not hurt and I got it done without freaking out. I forgot the cameras were there.

I am taking 450 units of Gonal-F, 150 units of Menopur, 5 units of Lupron and Prednisone twice a day for now. I have monitoring on Tuesday, Friday and the following Monday.

I am just prayerful that these medications do not alter my personality. I do not want to turn into a hormonal and evil girl.
