Tonight is hopefully my LAST night of stims ! I mixed and injected all the meds and surprisingly this cycle, I do not have one bruise ! WOW ! I made it through without looking like a human cushion pin !!
I have a monitoring appointment in the morning and more labs and I am praying that the other follicles catch up to the 20, 16 and 14 leads that I had on Monday. I feel a lot fuller and more bloated. My acupuncturist noticed my abdominal bloat this morning.
I went to acupuncture with my mom and then we grabbed lunch at a place she read about since she was craving fajitas. She ended up not even liking them, which is typical lol. Her taste buds are so off, I do not even know why she even tries to eat out.
After starting Taxol last week, my mom started experiencing radiating pain. She text me at 2 am to ask if I was awake so that she could figure out something to take for the pain in her back. I gave her a flexeril but it didn’t do much to help. We called her Oncologist’s office this morning and they wrote a script for Vicodin. I went and picked it up this evening and filled it when I went to pick up my Emla cream. I found the numbing cream does help when injecting the PIO (progesterone in oil).
I have packed my box of spices and treats, packed up all my meds, needles and supplies and I am shipping those boxes to the hotel tomorrow so they will be there when I arrive on Thursday. My hotel has a kitchen in the room, which I love, although they do serve a full breakfast daily and dinner Monday thru Thursday. I always eat breakfast, but I usually just have to concierge take me to the grocer and I buy food to cook since I am so picky. My mom is going with me this time, so I will have company !! I am excited that she will be coming along. Being that Upstate NY is extremely cold and it is to be -2 on Thursday, I doubt we will venture out except to the grocer. We will probably go see a movie on Saturday at the mall if I am up to it.
Please send up some prayer that this last injection pushes these little follicles to where they need to be. I will drink a few cups of Ballerina Tea tomorrow when I get back from my appointments and “clean out”. I found that by cleaning the digestive tract, I did not have nearly as much bloating and discomfort post-procedure since I emptied my colon and intestines the day before.
