Man, these results are frustrating me. Still only 4 follicles and they’re getting too big for more to catch up, in my opinion, but my estrogen is only up 200ish. I’m having a hard time reminding myself that every cycle is different. Maybe my body isn’t used to the barrage of hormones after this long of a break.
We added Cetrotide last night. I don’t remember the needle being that long. It drew a lot of blood.
I’m not liking this cycle so far. It started off good but now I’m not so sure. N was trying to be reassuring yesterday but I’m just meh. I know it’s still very early in the game but I don’t have a good feeling. And I’m already stressed about next cycle. I think we’re at max medication doses. What else could we do?
Emotional: Woe is me
Physical: Tired. I don’t like talking about CM but it’s there and it’s a lot. Sorry.
Food: I don’t remember lunch. Short ribs and cauliflower mash for dinner.
