Awwwhhh....Good News!!

Good news first:

So my nurse finally called and told me my blood results from yesterday. She said your FSH is 3. I said huh, say what? She said a 3. I said no seriously did you just say a 3 and she said yep. My FSH has gone from a 13 to a 3. No Way! I'm too happy about that.

Tears second:

Awwhh thanks everyone for cheering on my cycle. I had no idea I had so many waiting patiently with me to start my cycle up. I really do appreciate it.

Ouch third:

So I just did my nighttime shots. I did Lupron, Gonal F and Menopur this morning so tonight was Gonal F, Menopur and Lovenox. I must admit that I was scared to death of the Lovenox shots because of all the horror stories I've heard about the bruising (See Alison's belly here), and the burning. So I did my Gonal F and Menopur cocktail shot and my stomach decided to bleed. Enough to fill an alcohol pad so I had to grab a cotton ball. This doesn't normally happen to me...but I was like um okay, its cool. So I could no longer do the Lovenox on that same side because I didn't want to make that side all sensitive....I mean I still have a lot of days ahead of me. So I switch to the other side that I used this morning for the Lovenox.

Okay...jab....okay...they told the burns....all of it...but not to the point of OMG pass out burn. But its cool.....I can handle it. LOL! I say that now....but what will I do when I run out of easy to grab fat on my belly.

Good luck!

I just recently found your blog. I'm a patient of Dr. S's also (which is how I found your blog!). I think I'm going to begin my IVF cycle in April.

That is great news about your FSH level. Hope the shots get a little easier. Sounds like no fun!

I'm so glad that you're finally on this new cycle and your FSH sounds FABULOUS! I hope that's just the first of many better things to come!

The things we have to do to have a baby. OUCH!!!! You can do it..(wink)

Michele said...

YAY!!!! So thrilled abouth the FSH!!!

Injecting is no fun, but let me say, labor is harder! ;) The injections are just part of the journey we have to walk. Not fun, but also, as you so hysterically put it, not OMG either. :)

Sending warm fuzzies your way!!
