CD 5

another day, another date with the ultrasound wand.  i am one lucky gal.  btw, since i like charts and lists, my totals are now:

  • 26 pills
  • 33 injections
  • +5 pounds since beginning meds (which i totally blame on my chocolate rewards)
  • 8 sets of BW
  • 4 dates with the lovely US wand

and today’s numbers:

CD Date e2 Menopur Notes

1 12/10 4 vials

L: 8, 8.5, 9.5, 10, 10, 11.5

no phone call today with my e2 number, but i have to call in tomorrow, so i’ll ask for it then. but no news means no change in dosage, so i guess that’s good.

Dr. Derman said that we will most likely not be looking at a monday or tuesday ER yet, but probably wednesday or thursday instead.  if i keep going at my current dosage though, i’ll run out of menopur after monday night.  and since there is a weekend between now and then, i’m going to call tomorrow and push for some more vials just in case.  i don’t want to mess everything up over something so silly.

this morning’s appointment was rough.  the woman in the other bloodwork chair was telling the nurse how she came in last week for her baseline bloodwork and her first appointment, and got a call that afternoon that she didn’t need IF treatment, she was already knocked up.  and then, the ultrasound room is in between two dressing rooms, and you can kind of hear what is going on in there while you are waiting.  so after hearing about the miracle BFP, i heard a couple get to hear the heartbeat for the first time and graduate back to her OB.  happy for both of them.  know they didn’t steal my babies.  but damn, what a rough way to start the day.  i don’t get bothered by pregnancies in people i know too much, but random pregnant strangers totally bum me out.
