Cycling while traveling
This morning while getting ready for work I started thinking about something. We are planning on going out of town for the fourth of July to visit my husband’s family and grandfather who is in a nursing home. However, I just realized that I will probably be cycling during that time and will need to use my Follistim when I’m there. I don’t know why I didn’t realize that before, ugh. I guess it’s finally one time when I wasn’t thinking about IF lol.
We will be staying at husband’s aunt’s place like we normally do. I am not sure how I am going to manage the follistim thing. I mean just getting the shot is fine, we close the door to our room. However, I have to bring it up in a cooler pack and store it in a fridge and bring the alcohol swabs and the sharpy box. Do I tell her that I am storing some medicine in her fridge or just hide it in some small corner? What do I say when she asks what sort of medicine? I can probably lie about that, but what if some other family member finds it in the fridge and is like what is this? ugh. We have not told anyone on that side of the family. Only my parents know really. Also I will probably have been cycling for about a week and a bit by then. What if I need a monitoring appointment during the time we are going to be away? I will have to make up something to tell my mother in law about why I can’t make it or can’t leave until a certain day. Though, knowing my response to Follistim, I may not need a monitoring visit for a while since I usually have a slow start. Anyone gone through anything like this? What did you do? Anyone have any suggestions?
