I did it!

Today has been a long day and I’m still at work! Thank goodness I only have thirty more minutes left. I feel like I have a lot to catch you guys up on.

First, this morning when I got up it was a little pink/brown when I wiped. I was like hmm…maybe AF is finally here. However, after checking and wiping through out today she has been barely there. Maybe a slight tinge on the paper, but that is it. I called in this morning to make sure they still wanted to have my appointment and she said since the flow is so light I can still do it and they can see what is going on.

I went to the appointment on my lunch break. I was busy before I went and therefore went with not much in my stomach and had not drank that much. Dumb I know. I first got my weight checked (went up some, ugh), and then got my blood pressure and breast check. Then I had my pap and I *&%$# did it with no tears!!!!!!!!!! This is huge for me. I have not been able to complete one in years and years and I didn’t have to be on valium and didn’t freak out. Yea me. I am so proud of myself.

After that she did my baseline ultrasound. I was really lucky to get the one nurse practioner who I really like. I talked to her about what the RE has me doing this cycle and after talking to her a bit she understood and didn’t make me do a progesterone and pregnancy test check. She just said we would see if everything was quiet internally and then see what the blood work says. Internally was fine. No cysts (yea!) and my lining was at 2.74. She had trouble finding my ovaries and she said that with lupron it makes your ovaries quiet and shut down some. Because of that they can be hard to find and mine are already hard to find. She finally did find them though.

After that I went and got my blood drawn. Since they were doing the prenatals and the infecious disease check as well they took four vials of blood. My arm is sore and I am tired. My mom suggsted that I eat some beef tonight. They had some issues finding my veins because I was dehydrated, but eventually they got it.

They finally just called back with my instructions. Guess what? I get to start this cycle tonight! Yea! Tonight I start with 100iu of follistim, 10 units of low dose hcg and 10 units of Lupron (going down from 20). I finally get to start! Now the stick ticker will really get going. I go back in again on friday to see how my ovaries like the follistim/hcg/lupron combo. I hope my body likes it and I don’t have to have a long ass cycle.
