IVF Diary Vol III: 07-09 Apr 16

Medication(s) administered and dosage(s). Stimming phase: day 9.  AM Lupron 0.5mg (5 units) injection.  Today is TRIGGER DAY!! WHOOP WHOOP!!!

Medical procedures undertaken. Monitoring vaginal ultrasound and Estradiol blood tests check 3 on Thursday & 4 today, Saturday!

Any results? Uterine lining 13mm and several follicles >21mm, a few more at 19mm and some smaller ones between 11-18mm, I’m not surprised I’m feeling so sore and bloated! They are much bigger than any of my previous cycles!

What are my symptoms?  Wow I am ready for these eggs to go.  I am feeling much more bloated and sensitive in my ovaries than any of the previous cycles.  Headaches and tiredness galore.

How do I feel today? I am feeling positive.  I’m feeling excited.  I’m feeling ready!!! I’ve had three days off work keeping myself busy with fun things like shopping, knitting and baking!

Today at a party I was playing with a little girl and someone who I had just met a few hours earlier asked me “so when are you planning on having one of your own?”  I turned around slightly surprised and replied to him in front of everyone in the room, “hmmm soooo in about 9 months time!!”, he said “Oh, umm, wow” taken aback at my response, “You are trying now?”  I said “Well, yes, as of next Saturday I will be pregnant…..we are going through IVF!!”.  Everyone in the room looked a little unsure and shocked at my bluntness!!  Then I got a whole sea of “Oh Congratulations!!” “That’s awesome!!!”.  It’s funny how open I can be about it all now.

What’s next? Trigger tonight at 9PM and then egg retrieval surgery is on Monday 0630 AM!


The Final Countdown!!! 



*Notes.  I take First Response Reproductive Health multi vitamin gummies (pre-natal), 5mg Melatonin at bed time and CoQ10 200mg gummies daily.  NSTR = Nothing Significant To Report.
