Stims, Days 1-2

100 units follistim
1 vial Menopur

The trick is to have an amazing sister, who just so happens to be a nurse, come over and help you through it for a few days. I can not even tell you how much this has helped to put my mind at ease. She’s also really good at getting rid of those stubborn air bubbles. A HUGE SHOUT OUT to all you brave women who had to fly solo right from the beginning. I had anxiety all day even knowing my sister was coming over to help!

How I’m feeling: Soooo crampy!!!! (But this is likely because I have my period and can’t take my trusty midol), slept all day (also likely related to period), the heating pad is my best friend, feels like a really bad period day

I go for ultrasound and bloodwork in the AM. Will get new dosage info. based on the visit, if necessary. I am very excited and optimistic. And I hope all this positivity doesn’t come back to bite me in the ass, but I am thinking it will keep me in a much healthier frame of mind which can’t be a bad thing!
