Baseline Appointment

Well Hello! I’ve been thinking about how I want to document this new cycle. I find myself referring back to the other 2 and they are a mess. I’m very envious of Dani‘s documenting of her cycles. Very cool. I’m going to try to do it like the last cycle. There was at least some semblance of organization. We’ll start that on Saturday when stims start.

This morning I was up at 3 (which really should be illegal) because one of the cats was puking and the other was trying to get into the food cabinet. It was a great start to the day. I’m amazed at how many people drive up to Boston at 5 in the morning. That made me sad. Everyone looked grumpy and cold. Maybe I was just projecting. I was in such a haze waking up, I forgot my water so I knew the blood draw would be “fun”. Then when I was laying down with my legs in the stirrups I realized I hadn’t taken my underwear off just as she walked in. Silly.

She really struggled to find my right ovary again. She said that as the cycle progresses it would become easier to find. She said she found it eventually but I wonder if she just said that to make me feel better. I didn’t ask for the antral follicle count because I’m sure I fell asleep on the table. There’s a first time for everything.

The day progressed very slowly. I don’t think I didn’t any work. The nurse called and I’m to start meds on Saturday. 300iu Gonal F and 75ml of Menopur and then my first monitoring appointment is next Wednesday.

This day has been awfully long and I’m just waiting to finish this post so that I can go to bed and if the universe is listening it will let me sleep all the way to Saturday just in time for my first shot.

In closing, I’m so excited for everyone right now. Starting stims! Just finished retrieval! In the 2ww! Pregnant! Doing that mommy thing! You’re all doing wonderfully and I am so very proud of all of you! Here’s to April!!!

Okay, I sleeps now.

  1. Haha… I dread driving to Boston in the mornings and am so grateful that I rarely have to do that. Sometimes I have to drive to Logan to fly to meetings in NYC… I spend two and a half hours in traffic going north to the city for a 45 minute flight south… So annoying! Okay rant over lol. Hope this cycle goes just perfect!!

  2. Woohoooo for the go ahead to starting stims!!!

    I am pleased I kept up my diary entries for each cycle to compare back to!! But this cycle I have been totally lackadaisical about capturing all my symptoms 😳 I have just been lazy!!!
