IVF #1: D5

I guess I have a bit to catch up on.

I went to my patient education class Wednesday, which was injection lessons and medication instructions. That night I started 225 gonal-f and 75 menapur. They can be mixed together, so I only have to shoot myself once a day. Yay. Eventually I will add ganarelix, which can also be mixed in one shot. The first two stimulate egg growth, the last inhibits  ovulation. 

The first night was a little daunting. Hub came to the injection training with me and I had him do both the mixing and the shooting. The next night I mixed and hub shot. The following night I mixed and shot- we had Red Sox tickets, so I had to do it in the bathroom. Yuck. 

Yesterday morning (Saturday- morning of day 4 of stims) I had a blood work appointment. My estrogen level was 141.9, which I was told was perfect and they made no changes to the meds. I go back tomorrow (Monday- morning of day 6) for blood work and ultrasound! 

I am trying really hard to go with the flow and not turn obsessive with this. So far it's going ok.
