Total Shot Count - 42
Side Effects - Emotionally I'm feeling awesome. I haven't had the emotional highs and lows that I thought I would have. Besides the occasional freak out on the way to the doctor (just ask my friends who I was texting with haha) I haven't been emotionally effected. Physically is a WHOLE other story. First off I've gone to the doctor 3 times in the last 4 days. All the appointments have been early morning (all before 9:30), therefore I have not gotten the sleep I'm use to. This has been hard not only because I'm lacking sleep but because a side effects of the drugs themselves make you tired! I also have a very "full" feeling in my ovaries - but I'm going close to 30 follicles/eggs....I guess I shouldn't be surprised by that. I have a hard time sitting down and standing up, I just have to really be careful not to move too fast =).
As far as doctors appointments go, things have been great. I have been stimming very quickly and efficiently. I went to the doctor yesterday morning and this morning. Both times my estrogen levels have been perfect at 1800 and 2300 respectively. So it looks like tomorrow I will be going in at 9:30am to have one more scan/blood draw and then I should be triggering tomorrow night! That means Egg Retrieval will be set for Wednesday morning! I will know all the details tomorrow after my appointment. I'm so excited I can hardly stand it. It seems like its taken SO long to get to this point but no matter what happens this is God's plan. I am grateful for the opportunity to have a chance at having another child. God is good and HIS plan for my life is far better than any plans I could ever make for myself.
