Lining Check – The 411

coming soon

Today, I went in for blood work at the hospital lab and then over to the women’s imaging center for my sonogram.  My lining is 7mm and is trilaminar !  My nurse called and is scheduling my egg thaw for Friday and my transfer for Monday.

My sono results came in but the blood work was not in when I talked to her. She is going to call me tomorrow with additional instructions, but for now, I am to stay on the Lupron and all other meds.  I am calling in my prescription for viagra and will take one pill per day vaginally for three days and I will go in for another lining scan on Friday (just because I am paranoid !)

Please keep me in your prayers and send up prayers on Friday that ALL SEVEN of my eggs survive the thaw and that ALL SEVEN fertilize and become embryos !!

I am feeling a lot better.  I am having issues from the ulcer, which was to be expected.  The z-pack also causes loose bowels so that coupled with the yeast infection I have now developed, I am NOT a happy camper lol.    These are the breaks eh?

Well, until tomorrow ~

IVF #5 – Stim Day 20 – The Last Night of Stims – The 411

One More Day

Today is officially my LAST NIGHT of Stimming !!   I have been patiently injecting myself am and pm for the past 20 days !  Tomorrow morning, I do my injection of Ganirelix, Neupogen, and Lovenox and then I wait until 9:30 pm and do my 1st Novarel trigger shot.

I went in this morning for monitoring and I have 11 follicles on the right and 3 on the left.  I am hoping that by Saturday retrieval they are ALL mature and retrievable.  I am getting anxious.  I just need this to be MY cycle !  My doctor called in a script for Viagra for me to take vaginally to make sure my lining is an 8. Of course insurance will not cover it and its $41 per pill !   $900 for a prescription… I swear insurance companies are rip offs !  Since my lining looks pretty good today, as opposed to the drop it took last week on Friday, I am only going to get 4 of the 20 pills they called in.

This evening, I will inject the Gonal-F and Menopur.   I have packed all of my belongings and shipped them to the hotel and I have my dress and coat laid out that I am wearing for the funeral tomorrow.  I am going to just wear it to NY since I am not lugging luggage with me.  It is easier to just wear a comfy dress and take my dressier satin overcoat that I will switch into and a pair of heels. I am taking an oversize purse with my laptop in it and the heels so it will be easy for me to move about.  I am meeting my make up artist for breakfast in the morning and then leaving from breakfast and heading up to the Bronx to the funeral.  I am not looking forward to attending a double funeral AT ALL !   I absolutely HATE funerals.  They are too sad.  I will be there to show my love and support and will forgo the burial.

I will update tomorrow with how things went ~
