IVF #6 – Stim Day 5 – The 411

Five day of injections, medications, and supplements under my belt !  I picked up my prescription for the Estradiol Valerate and the Metformin XL today.  I will using the Estradiol instead of the Estrace for the estrogen, simply because I refuse to insert blue tablets in my hoohah three times a day while on menses… not happening !  How gross ! 🙂

My RE has me starting the Metformin with dinner at 500 mg the first week, 1000 mg the second week and 1500 mg the remainder of the time I am on the meds.  I am PRAYING that these meds do not make me sick on the tummy.  I am already feeling a bit queasy midday.  I had to increase my Vitamin D to 10,000 units a day !   Hopefully, that will bring my levels up to where they need to be.

I am packing for my trip to Washington for Christmas !  I am looking forward to spending the holidays with the family.

I am almost done with my Christmas shopping.  I bought a ton of gift cards and had to get gift cards for the homeless teens I am sponsoring as “Gay Santa” for the teens at New Alternatives NYC.  The teens are LBGTQ and every year, they ask for people to sponsor a teen and accept their Gay Santa letter and purchase the requested gift that is valued at no more than $100.  My family and I normally take on 4 teens.

I went out tonight and got gifts for my godmother and my make up artist.  It was pretty simple !  I got tea related gifts for my make up artist, as he drinks hot tea ALL day long !  I got him two beautiful white and silver tea cup sets, stainless steel long handle tea spoons, and an organic tea.  He will love it !   My godmother got Burberry parfum for her birthday and I got her a European pamper gift basket with Bubblebath, Shower Gel, Hand soap, A bar of Lavender soap, a purple sponge to match the color of the lavender soaps, and I will hunt down a pair of purple loungewear tomorrow.  Her birthday was a few weeks ago so I figured I would ship everything at the same time 🙂

I am still torn over what to give my mother…  I will figure it out before Friday LOL.  I am always soooo last minute with these things because unless she mentions something, I am stumped as to what to give her.  We are planning a big family event for her birthday this summer, so I have to watch my spending.  It is her 65th birthday !

I hope you all have an amazing weekend !!
