Woo Hoo ! IVF #3 Stim Day 1 !- The 411

woo hoo the good news

At 3pm, I called the clinic to let them know I had baselines today and that I had not gotten a call. They noticed that the hospital had not faxed over my ultrasound nor blood work results so I gave her the synopsis.  My awesome nurse, Greta, placed me on hold, came back to the phone and told me that I would start stims tonight and she would put all of my instructions on the patient portal for me. I am as happy as a pig is slop !

baby - IVF3 stim day 1

Today was a bit harder with mixing the meds.  My protocol has changed quite a bit.  I am now taking 300 gonal f, 300 menopur, 20mg prednisone, 5 units Lupron, lovenox, and neupogen.  The hardest part was mixing the meds then injecting into each menopur vial and drawing back out to inject the next vial.  LAUD !

I managed to get it all done and had no pain when injecting the three shots.  Now I am burning up.  I now know what my mom meant when she was having hot flashes.  I feel like I have fire shut up in my bones, like they say in a Baptist church !  ‘Laud Jesus It’s A Fyah!”

Anyway, I am so glad to be on this journey once again and am keeping a positive outcome that my twin babies will be here in July !  Right now, they will have my niece’s birthday as a due date.   I think I need to whip my ice crusher back out and the grape syrup.  Feels like Summer !

I am going to rest up so that I can be bright eyed and bushy tailed tomorrow for my mom’s surgery.  Please send up prayers tomorrow at 12 when she checks in and at 2 pm when she goes in for surgery.
