Thank the heavens, this morning’s Dilapan insertion was not nearly the nightmare it was the first time around. For those of you lucky enough not to know what a Dilapan is, it is a rigid stick that is placed in the cervix for the purpose of dilating it. Doesn’t that sound magical? 😉 A Slender, curvy cervix makes for a difficult transfer. This is supposed to make it easier, though if you talk to the doctor who did my first transfer, the jury is still out on whether or not it was effective. Anyway, just had the procedure done and this time it was a piece of cake. I’m still crampy but the actual process of inserting it was no big deal, and I am pleasantly surprised!
Shout out to my cervix for being cooperative. Love ya, babe! 😉
Here is my stim days 1-3 recap:
– 75 Menopur (1 vial)
– 225 Follistim
– 5 Lupron
Felt some tiny twinges yesterday afternoon on the right side, and sure enough my current front runner, measuring in at 11 mm, is on the right. I have 5 smaller ones on the right, and 7 on the left. Doc says this is right in line with what is expected. Here’s hoping for no surprises. I start Omnipotren (human growth hormone) tonight.
I took a sick day from work but must attempt to work from home for the next few hours. Can’t wait to have the magical cervix wand removed later this afternoon!
