Today, I went in for monitoring and blood work. My nurse just called to give me the instructions for the next two days. My estrogen is 1000 because of the Delestrogen, so they decided to add the Lovenox now instead of waiting until after my retrieval so that I do not have clots due to elevated estrogen levels.
Tonight, I do my first Follistim (125 units) injection and again tomorrow night and I have another monitoring appointment for sonogram and blood work on Friday. On Saturday, I will start the Menopur.
Things are progressing nicely, as I have 7 follicles on each side and that is before adding the gonatropins. !! I hope to have a lot of good follicles with mature eggs in them this cycle, that will develop into awesome/beautiful STICKY embryos ! 🙂
I am going to order my sperm vial to be sent to CNY on tomorrow so that it can ship out on Friday and get to CNY on Monday. It appears that my mom may not be able to come with me to Albany because she is due to start radiation on April 27th and if my report date for procedure is closer to the end of next week or pushed back to the 27th, I will be traveling alone, but my film crew will be coming up the day of procedure to film everything….
Infuscience came today to do my intralipid infusion. I decided to do the infusion on stim day 6 and then again at retrieval and weekly thereafter. There has been promising data on increased live birth rates when the intralipids are administered in this manner as it helps put the immune system to sleep !
As you can see, I have converted my mom’s quilting studio in to a make shift infusion center ! lol
Please keep me in your thoughts and prayers ~
