IVF 2 Stim Day 4 – The 411

baby - ivf 2 stim day 3

Today is the third day of my stims and I am worn out.  I normally wake up at 4 am and today I woke up and fell back asleep.  I was supposed to do a consult with my RE, Dr. Grossman at 7:30 am and I did not wake up to call him.  I woke up at 9:05 am ! What The WHAT???  I NEVER sleep that long. 

I did get an opportunity to chat with my RE and I decided after the info given me that I DO NOT want to do IVIG.  I did not realize it was a blood product and there is an increased risk of contracting HIV or Hepatitis.  I am NOT willing to take that kind of risk with my life and health over a treatment that is not proven to make a difference. 

He and I agreed to increase the dosage of my intralipid infusion therapy instead. 

Tonight, I mixed my meds while icing the tummy and then I injected the meds with no problem.  I am ridiculously exhausted.  I have GOT to find a source of energy to get me through Saturday.  The film premiere is happening and I am now very excited about it and the cause we are supporting.

Tomorrow I have to be out of the house by 7:30 am to do my first monitoring appointment and blood work.  This time I was told to drink 32oz of water prior to arrival.  I pray I do not pee on the sonogram tech !  I am not good at holding pee LOL.  Please pray my strength (as my great grandmother would say).
