Yesterday I went to the RE for an u/s and some bloodwork. I had 11 follicles – 5 on the right and 6 on the left all were measuring between 8 and 10. There were several more on the left that were smaller and a few more on the right that were smaller. My estradiol level came back in the 400s -so the new plan is 250 of Follistem every morning, 225 of menopur every night, and I started my ganirelix shots last night. Three shots a day – I’m feeling a little like a pincushion – but I would easily do 100 shots a day for another blessing like our WeeMan.
I think the meds are making me tired. I am usually zonked out by 9 on the couch. I kind of remember being tired the first go round. So far at least I’m not too moody and not too swollen. This part of the process is hard for me b/c it’s so difficult to trust when you can’t see or feel what’s going on. It’s that faith thing – I’m noticing it’s a recurring theme as I fill out my Beth Moore study – faith seems to be the thing holding me back.
I go back to the doctor tomorrow morning – hopefully everything will still look good and there’ll be a few more follicles.
