Tonight, I, again, could not get the stupid needle to go into my belly. It is like the needle is dull or something. I iced my tummy and then just let my grandmother, who is a nurse, but also has alzheimers, do the shot. I was PRAYING that she remembered how to stick someone LOL. She did great and was so proud of herself.
I mixed up all the meds pretty easily. I had to pack up all the meds I will need for tomorrow, as I will be doing my shots at the film premiere. I have drawn up the lupron, and the gonal-f into the insulin syringes and will put them in a cooler bag with ice packs.
I forgot how very tired I get on these meds. I am so exhausted I could sleep for days ! I have to get up early in the morning to get my hair curled and wait for FedEx to bring my additional boxes of Gonal-F for next week. I am having them deliver only two and will call on Tuesday if I need more. I should be okay as long as my stims are done by Friday.
I am a bit disturbed by my ultrasound today. I have 5 follicles in my right ovary and only 2 on the left according to the portal report. I am not sure if there are more that are tiny and they were not accounted for or if that is all I have. 7 follicles will end up being 6-7 eggs which is not enough. The last time I had 12 and 7 eggs fertilized and 4 made it to five day blasts. I still have one frozen but I am hoping for at least three blasts to transfer so that I can get this over with. I am going to call the nurse in the morning and ask for her thoughts. I have not been doing acupuncture since my miscarriage and called for appointments this week, as it can not hurt. I also have not been taking all the supplements I took last time like the Co-Q 10 and Inositol on a consistent basis. I have been so overwhelmed with WHEN and IF my menses would resume. Now I am officially freaked out !
