Today is stim day 16 ! Wow !!! 16 whole days of injecting medications into my belly AFTER popping birth control pills for 21 days plus injecting Lupron for 7 days. This has been the longest cycle… 37 days on this protocol thus far.
This morning, I popped the Prednisone and then injected the Lovenox, Ganirelix, and Neupogen. I had a class to attend at Howard University School of Divinity this morning that ran until this afternoon. On the way to my mom’s I stopped off at Target after lunch to grab another box of Claritin, that I take every morning as a part of the immune suppression in this protocol.
I pray that all this long drawn out effort brings me two of the sweetest, most intelligent and gorgeous babies this side of Jordan ! lol
Tonight, I will mix up the Menopur and inject it and also my Follistim. It is so hard to believe that I only have a few more days. I still do not have the swollen ovary feeling I normally have on the Gonal-F. Maybe it is because I do not have a ton of oversized follicles yet. I thought that I would feel something by now. I wonder if it is attributed to the new meds?
I hope everyone is having a great weekend ! Tomorrow I am going to church very early and then going to see Blackbird at the theater in Maryland. I have to pack my things for Albany and ship them out on Tuesday so that my clothing, sheets, meds, and gifts for the staff will arrive on Thursday. I will be heading to Albany after the funeral on Thursday, provided I do not have substantial growth this weekend and get pushed to trigger and report earlier. Right now the plan is set. I so not want to haul luggage with me to a funeral, so I will pack a box and ship the things to the hotel and then just ship them back home the day I leave.
