.I am on 10units of Lupron a day and after 5 days my emotions are high and a non stop headache. Is this happening for anyone else and if so any advice on getting rid of the headache?
Jan 30, 2012 .To: ChitChatNine.Thanks I guess what I am experiencing is normal and can be worst.
Jan 30, 2012 .To: All.Okay so today was day 10 of shots and it was my first day headache free and emotions under control I was actually happy. I even managed to watch a Downy commerical without crying so all and all a good day. I was reading that symptoms will subside when your body gets adjusted to the hormone spike so I hope so. 2 more days until my 1st ultrasound (US) and bloodwork (BW)these initials are still foreign to me. I am so happy to have found this site so I have something gage results off of. :) I think I will be happy if there is atleast 1 or 2 follicles and my lining is around 10? If anyone knows if I am right or wrong please let me know.
I am still hopeful that even though this is our 1st try that it will work. I see so many woman on here have there 1st try be a success :-)
Feb 01, 2012 ..I had my ultra sound today. went with a full badder was ready to burst and they said oh no it needs to be empty. Everything looked Good uterus is measuring at 3.3 cm thin dr said that was normal and good No cysts and saw 6 follis in right ovary and 5 in the left. alos said that was normal. Blood work also done, was called later by Dr told toreducce lupron to 5 units fri night and add 200 dial up of Folistim and 10 units of solution x ( of which dr said he cant tell me what it is or he would have to kill me) lol ( I told him you already tried in June... remember lol ) I think the solution x is sodium chloride but it is written on with a black marker....... hmmmmmm that one throws me for a loop I wonder why that was delivered with all the rest of my meds by cvs caremark? If anyone is out there and readng this and has a clue what it is or something similar. please let me know. so uping meds on friday and back in dr office sunday between 7-9 am for more blood work and then i think if my calender is correct should go in for egg retrival maybe the wed the 8th.
Funny everything seems to go so slow and yet so fast at the same time. still positive and hopeful with head aches and now my husband gave a me a cold. yay .
Feb 02, 2012 ..Okay so today was NOT a good day I snapped I dont know whats wrong with me. I just feel like anything my husband says to me mean and non emotionally supportive. I dont think he has a clue what we go through to even get pregnant and he keeps helping everyone with everything while avoiding things that need to be done or worse leaving them for me. URRRRGGGGGH I could just Scream but instead I sigh and he says "what are you in a mood AGAIN" well I am now. so I snapped and told him he has no idea what I am going through and he told me that I have no idea what he is going through with all off this and that it is emotional for him as well and that it bothers him that he with me cant just have a normal natural pregnancy. OMG. I dont even know what to say to him . .
Feb 03, 2012 ..So. Today I feel better and I talked to my husband last night about what he said he kinda acknowedged it and kinda didnt but for him atleast I know he knows that it bothered me. if that made any sense. So today is the day I start stage 2 with the sol x and the follistim. I was wondering this am about my lining measurment and remembered I stopped my birth control pills (BCP) a week early because of a blood clot in the leg and it was still so much thinner then i expected and what i have seen from everyone else. I still have this cold and I really hope it goes away today my nose is raw and I have enough on my plate with work and ivf.
I havent seen my best gf in a while so I arranged a spa day date with her tomorrow no massage just hair nails and makeup then dinner it will be so nice to see her and catch up we havent had a gf date in months and it will be nice to have a mental break. I try not to talk to her about all this since she has opted to never have children. i can respect her decision but I just think what she will be missing out on. Have a wonderful day ladies and I hope to hear from you all soon and for positive prenancies to roll in .
Feb 03, 2012 ..Okay so today was my 1st day of follistim and sol x and lower lupron and its was a DISASTER.. OUCHHHHHHHH so my Dr said I could save a stab by mixing the sol x and the lupron in 1 needle, unfortunatly by the time i primed the bottles and drew the amounts the needle was DULL I couldnt get it in 4x stabd I finally gave up and primed again with 1 needle and drew with a new one for both and then I finally was able to get a stab on the 5th try with a new needle. Then on to the follistim pen at 200units. This thing *****....... it went in fine but to get it to dispense was another story. it moved everywhere clicked so slow left a whole bleed HORRIBLE. uughhhh I need a glass of wine. Has anyone drank while on the meds? 10 more days .
Feb 05, 2012 ..Okay so yesterdsy was better then the dsy before lol. that was hell. still hurts but I had a Varity Club telethon last night with my bff and she went to the bathroom with me and helped still wasnt great I cant seem to be able to dispense it my gf had to push it in. 8 more days max thats what I keep telling myself. hahaha. I had my bw #2 at 8am and my Dr office was packed I was so surprised like full office. I havent noticed any bloating yet but I did start getting alittle cramping today and I generally cramp when I ovulate, I use to think boy my body does not want me pregnant because that is counter productive. cramps = no sexy time hahaha. But now Im thinking maybe thats my stims working. Dr called said my bw was good and to proceed on same doses and bw again tue am. I wonder when he will do retrival???? If I started stims on 2/3 fri could it be crazy to think he could do retrival wed or thur? I thought when they set me up they said 2/8 ish for retrival and nothing had changed my med calander ecthas been right on point. I really Hope and pray this works. not just for me but all of us. .
Feb 06, 2012 ..2/6 I Just got off the phone with Dr's nurse and I thought I was having retrival this week but nope :( I am a week off no retrival till next week maybe valentines day- when I though I was going to be having tranfer day. BW tomorrow AGain. bruised and hate needles fun wow.
My mood is really really good like unusally good and hyper today. strange but I will take it. SO that is a positive. I always say try to find atleast 1 positive a day in anything.Today oddly I have 48 haha
I was disappointed a few minutes ago and now confused to hear my ivf nurse say I will have a day 3 tranfer not day 5..... I thought they org told me day 5 transfer. I keep reading how much better day 5 is. I will have to talk to the Dr about that.
Well we have sun and 50 degrees here today - instead of normal snow wind and 10 , and I have a light work load so I will enjoy this weather and mood. or should I say my DH ( husband) will enjoy this mood. lol
Feb 07, 2012 ..2/7 so bw today e2 was 594 I dont know what that means but they decided to drop my follistim from 200 to 150 and I have to go back in again tomorrow for more bw and now a U/S. I have some discomfort and cramping but I seem to think it is similar to when I ovulate. .
Feb 08, 2012 ..BW today but results arent back yet. U/S came back and our little follis came in with 10 eggs and came in at 13,13,13.2,11.9,11,14.9,15,13.8,11,12.7. tonight will shot # 6 of follistim . I have extreme pressure in my ovaries I am hoping for ER (egg retrival) sat .
Thur 2/9 Okay so yesterdays E2 was 964. I thought that was a good jump from the day before. then today my E2 was 1342 so still good gains. I have BW # 5 i think and US # 3 tomorrow. no ER on Sat looks like early next week urgh this pressure is getting worse by the day. I hope to know more tomorrow and have some more great gains on my follis . so I will hope and wait till tomorrow. I so want to be optimistic and hopeful but not too much because if it doesnt work I will be so devistated. .
