IVF DIARY VOL I: 29 JULY 2015

IVF_Diary_Vol1Medication(s) administered and dosage(s). 3 injections: (AM) Cetrotide 0.25mg, (PM) Gonal-F 300iu and Menopur 75iu.

The cetrotide was a bit better this morning, but as I was distracted with getting to the clinic on time for my monitoring appointment I didn’t feel as bad as yesterday. Phew!

Medical procedures undertaken. Ultrasound and Estradiol blood test.  My appointment was at 8AM, I arrived at 0750 and the receptionist told me that they were a team down and there may be some delays.  I commented that was fine because it just meant I didn’t have to work for quite as long!  However, it was at 0945 I was getting a little annoyed at the wait, AND I had drained my phone battery googling IVF success statistics.  I had a new doctor I had not met before, she apologised profusely that she had been stuck in surgery.  Oh well stuff happens.  As soon as the doctor inserted the ultrasound wand and I saw all the follicles in my right ovary I almost cried with relief!

How do I feel today? Still feeling positive!  My mum arrived from the UK today and we won our game of softball (that I managed to drag myself to despite feeling poo every time I bend over) so it was a pretty awesome day despite some of the pains in my tummy.

What are my symptoms? My stomach is still painful from the injections, but not quite as bad as yesterday.

How does Chris feel today? He tells me he is feeling good.  He stabbed me four times with three injections today.  I was watching this time and I burst out laughing as he managed to get the needle with the second attempt, which is NOT a good idea – jiggling about with a needle hanging in you!

Any results? 9 lovely follicles in the right ovary, so a couple of new ones have had a growth spurt, only 4 in the left….as the doctor said, it’s the lazy lefty ovary.  But everything is on track and no adjustments to my medication required.

What’s next?  Focusing on getting my project at work completed so I can focus my energy on next week.

Weight. No gain or loss today.  Still not sure how.

Waist.  Oh my waist is still a little pot bellied bloated.

Boobs. NSTR

Hours of Sunshine 🙂 About 15 minutes as I had a walk at lunch time with a friend to get some fresh air, and then about 1.5hrs in the glorious evening sun playing softball (well attempting to play softball without bending over too much, which is pretty difficult as I play Catcher!!!)150729_IVF1_Stats

*Notes.  I take First Response Reproductive Health multi vitamin gummies (pre-natal) and CoQ10 200mg gummies daily.  NSTR = Nothing Significant To Report.
