As of today I’m officially stimming! Woop!
Instead of 10 units of Lupron, I’ve now dropped down to 5 units, in addition to 225 IU of Gonal-F pen, and 10 units of Solution X. Not sure why my RE gives it such a mysterious name. When I asked him what that was he said he’d tell me, but he’d have to kill me. (It’s LH.)
I was sure to ice the crap out of my injection sites tonight since I’d have 3 needles to do. Tomorrow will be 4 as I’ll have to use what little is left from the first pen, plus more from a new one. Sunday morning I’ll have blood work in the morning to determine if dosages need to be adjusted. Then next week I’m assuming I’ll have lots of early ultrasounds to see how those eggs are doing.
I REALLLLLY hope my body responds to these drugs the way it should. Please please please! I’ve cut out all alcohol for the last 2 weeks (almost), and I’m going to attempt to ditch my morning cup of coffee and have decaf tea instead, but I’m not sure if I can. Coffee usually helps my digestive system in the morning, and I’m afraid what will happen without it. I’m already screwed up enough from the Lupron. (Hi, my name is Road2ourbaby, and I’m addicted to Colace.)
Hope everyone has a lovely weekend.
