I guess this is my RE's week to get everything together before stimming starts. Had my sono and culture yesterday, had consent signing/med teach today, tomorrow is mock transfer and ultrasound to check lining.
i have to apologize for my freaking out the past few nights on here and turning a panic attack into a desperate plea for replies that i would indeed survive this. :)
i feel so much better after the consents were signed and the deposits were put down. i didn't realize how much that was stressing me out. i think the only other thing i am stressed about is calling the clinic's main location to schedule the sperm freeze for a back up incase hubby can't produce the day of retrieval. (had bad experience with office chick from that location and not crazy about them). Aside from that med teaching went pretty well (with the exception of her confirming that the 22 gauge needles were indeed for my HCG and PIO shots. (ouch!). they gave us a little pretend square of skin to velcro on my butt and hubby practiced with an IM needle several times (of course making a "blow dart" sound with his mouth each time since he heard "dart like motion" from the videos). Thank god the nurse told me i can ice before them! I'm excited to start the lupron in another week or so and happily looking forward to growing those follies!
Glad everything went well and your mind is at ease! Good luck!
When do you start stims?
February 1st 150 follistim 2x daily and menopur 150 each night, lupron 10 units 2x daily started on Jan 30th.
i've taken follistim before but never menopur.
jezebel57:i have heard of bravelle but am not familiar with it... is it similar to follistm/gonal?
I'm not sure - this is my first cycle. My RE told me we are taking an antagonist approach (also not sure what that means, haha)
Congratulations on getting the ball rolling!
It feels like a million dollars or?! Oh wait, it's more like 15 000 $ :-)
Good luck with the injects!
