Cinco

I can’t believe it’s Monday again. Ohy. Weekend went fast, but a fast weekend does have one upside – I got to see how my mini-ivf cycle was going again. Today is day 7 and my lining is a little thicker, almost to 3mm. I don’t think that is much difference from last time. I …

Life.time Movies

Yea for the weekend. While having a leisurely Saturday afternoon with not much on tv I found myself watching a Life.time movie. You know the type of movies Life.time plays, romantic love stories and movies that feature women getting beaten up or some other high emotional story. The movie I was watching today was about …

Day 4 Monitoring

I just had my first montitoring appointment for this mini ivf cycle. I got the woman who is always very thorough with her scans and can usually find both of my ovaries even when they are hiding. I kinda felt like it was a shame that I got her so early in my cycle. I …

Night before monitoring

Tomorrow morning will be my first monitoring appointment for this mini ivf cycle. I’ve had many first monitoring appointments and know what will happen, but I feel like in some small way this will be different. I guess because I have a different protocol than before.

Today will be day ten of my lupron shots and three days off my birth control pills. No period yet. It feels like she is coming, but she hasn’t shown up. From googling around it seems that most people get their period three to 10 days after stopping their birth control pills while on lupron. …

One more bcp

Tomorrow will be the last birth control pill I take this cycle yea. Hopefully it will be the last one for a long while. The next thing I do after stopping birth control is to continue on with the Lupron until I get a period. Hopefully I won’t have to wait too long for af. …

I stuck myself

So I am two nights in on the lupron and I did both sticks myself. Yea me. I drew blood tonight though. The worst part is breaking the skin. After that it’s easy. I was looking at the vial of lupron and it made me nervous. I have only been doing this for two days …

Stick ticker

While talking to a friend online this afternoon I thought of something that might help make all of these injections fun. I created a stick ticker. Basically I’m going to track how my sticks I get through this cycle and see what the number ends up being. I figure with my long cycles and three …
