Well, today is Stim Day 9 ! I am completely wiped out !! I did not do my am injections until around 11 am this morning because I had to drive to NC at 3 am to meet my sister to drop off her kids. My two year old niece and my 21 year old nephew were here visiting for two weeks over Spring Break.
I got back around 10:30 – 11 am this morning and immediately did my Ganirelix, Neupogen, and Lovenox injections. I will wait until around 8pm to inject the Menopur and Follistim.
I am hoping that the Follistim is starting to do it’s thing and that the follicles will start growing to a measurable rate and not drag on. I am beyond exhausted on this new med protocol. I took a four hour nap ! I am still sleepy, but decided to get up and make the organic, homemade Strawberry ice cream I cooked and refrigerated yesterday morning. Now I have two huge tubs of Strawberry and one fresh Peach in the freezer. Now that my niece has gone home, I MAY be able to eat a little of the ice cream LOL. Before she got here, she would never eat anything cold… go figure ! I started making the ice cream for my mom in the Cuisinart Ice Cream- Frozen Yogurt Maker I have. My niece was infatuated with the machine and the ingredients churning, so when I finished a batch of Vanilla Bean, I gave her some on a spoon and then she insisted she wanted more in a bowl. That began her love of ice cream. I sent my sister a link to a Cuisinart that was now on sale so that she could make this at home for the baby.
I missed the Earth Day Concert on the National Mall today since I had to travel, but it is okay. I am trying to avoid crowds and people …. and pollen ! No sense in hanging around outdoors too much and risking getting a sinus infection prior to these procedures in a week.
I think the only thing I wish I could do right now is enjoy a glass of white wine. I hear a German Eiswein calling my name, but I can not have it 😦
Have an awesome Saturday !!
