Possible September IVF. (New)
They keep moving me up. I am on day 3 of stim meds. So far the shots have been pretty easy. I’m only doing gonal f injections now and add menopur in a few days. So far the only side effects I’ve had are headaches when I wake up. Trying to increase my water intake hoping that may help.
I went in for my first monitoring appt yesterday. I was on day 5 of stims, they said I needed to keep my dosage up instead of decreasing. They only saw 7 follicles (one 10mm on each side and some smaller ones) but said they would have liked to seen more at this point. At first they were worried about OHSS but I don't think they are at this point any more. So today is day 6 of stims and I go in again tomorrow for another check. I am hoping to be able to do the ER around the 7th! Keeping my fingers crossed!
How is everyone else doing so far?
Started my injections today! Egg retrieval set for September 15. Daily medication Taking 1 Clexane injection and 25mgs prednisone for immune, 1 baby aspirin, and 1 injection with 75iu Follistm and 75iu of Menopur. Supplements, Folic acid, COQ10, DHEA and Omefa 3s w/VD. Today is day one so haven’t felt any side effects yet. You ladies are getting headaches?
So today is day 3 of stims for me. I spoke with my nurse earlier and asked for my baseline follicle count since I forgot to ask on Sunday. She looked it up and told me "11". Funny but I'm kind of skeptical. Maybe she was looking at another patient's info?! I've never had more than 8 at retrieval so 11 at base line seems strange. Has anyone experienced such a variance in cycles? This is my 4th...
That's great! Nix the back pain. Is that a side effect?
I go in tomorrow for blood and ultrasound. Thinking I'll trigger tomorrow or Saturday. Tummy feels like a pin cushion but at least my fever is dissipating. I couldn't handle having to cancel a retrieval due to a virus. Hopefully all goes well.
Let us know how many fertilize tomorrow.
Until then, have a cocktail and enjoy the warm weather!
We ended up retrieving 11, 10 mature, 7 fertilized, and 3 made it to day 5. We transferred 2 and have 1 frozen. Still in the TWW but I feel pretty confident at least one stuck! I maaaaay try to test tomorrow since I am Irish and it's St. Patty's Day, but I will only be 5dp5dt so I am still a little hesitant.
