IVF Diary Vol II: 16 Jan 16

Medication(s) administered and dosage(s). Gonal-F 300 iu & Menopur 150 iu.  We started with the Gonal-F needle – this one needs a bit more force to pierce the skin.  Chris didn’t do it hard enough and the needle bounced off my skin!!  I like to think it’s just my strong abdominal muscles rejecting the needle – haha!! As if!!!  Anyway, after that little episode Chris tried again, this time he went a little too hard and it hurt!  The camera captured the moment well.  It’s OK to laugh at me, I know it is quite a funny picture ;-p

Chris was oblivious to the ridiculous face I was pulling!  The camera captured the moment well.  Fortunately he was concentrating hard on the task at hand.

Medical procedures undertaken. Nil.

What are my symptoms? No hot flashes…nothing to report.  I am thankful!

How do I feel today?  Feeling good!  Chris and I had a nice day together, we went to our local organic eatery and sat in the heated sun porch for lunch.  It was a sunny glorious day so it was very relaxing.  We played a game of cribbage, I have 5 games to win in the next 1.5 months to beat Chris for the whole year (ever since we got married we keep track of the number of games won in a year).  Chris has taken the ‘surprise date’ idea and decided to extend it to the whole weekend – I am not to make any decisions, it will be a surprise and there will be fun!!!  Which sounds weird, but so far it has been nice to just follow his lead.

Any results?  After worrying about the LH and FSH results yesterday, I forgot that these tests were taken one day earlier than last time. The Birth Control Pill effectively switches off the LH so my body obviously hadn’t started to produce it again but I am sure it would have been higher a day later.  Worry ye not.

What’s next? The same injections Sun, then monitoring appointment on Monday morning.

Weight. NSTR

Waist.  NSTR

Boobs. NSTR

Hours of Sunshine 🙂 It was a beautifully sunny day and so caught a few rays whist we were out for lunch.

Fun Activity to keep Dani from going insane. I am going to finish this page of colouring in!  This was a colouring book I was given as a Birthday pressie from my parents.

Fun activity for next 24 hours…colouring in!

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