Day: July 23, 2012

Holy SHOT!

Monday, July 23rd, 2012.  CD7.

Today has completely exhausted me.

And it’s not even close to being over yet.  Ugh.

That’s alright though, because today is Menopur: Day One!

It almost killed me, but I managed to get my paws on my meds today.  I got everything home, put my Ovidrel in the fridge, and unpacked the Menopur kit.

Holy. Hell.

It was an intimidating little pile of torture devices, but I’ve had some experience with subcutaneous injections.

I am proud to say that I managed to mix the meds and inject myself, all without fainting or hyperventilating!

…This is one thing I wish I didn’t have to get used to.  Bleh.

Either way, tonight marks the end of my Femara consumption for the cycle, and the beginning of The Five Days of Menopur.

That should really be a Christmas carol…

On the first day of Menopur, my hormones brought to me

Abdominal bloating and some serious fatigue.

Festive, eh?

Anyway, this week should be interesting.  One Menopur shot per day, and an ultrasound on Friday to check out how my follies are responding.

We postponed the husband’s follow-up semen analysis due to insurance issues, but I’m not upset about it.  I think it might actually be better to wait a week or so, that way I can’t freak out and get all pessimistic about this cycle if his numbers don’t come back spectacular.

Once the insurance folks stop jerking me around, we will have this test done and at least have some more information in that arena.

In the meantime, it’s shots and sex for me!

Woo!  Just like college!

…Okay, maybe not just like college.
