After 3 days of stims...

After 3 days of stim shots (Bravelle and Menopur or Repronex), I had an ultrasound (u/s) and bloodwork (bw) done. My u/s showed 11 follicles. All are less than 10 right now. My estradiol was at 161.

I go back in tomorrow (Saturday) morning for another round.

I talked to the nurse about my reaction to the Repronex. She said it's common. She suggested I dilute the mixture with a tiny bit more water and then ice it after. If that doesn't work I can do intramuscular shots (hmmm....let me think about thanks!) or I can reorder the Menopur since the backorder is done.

I'm trying the first option for now!

No more headaches really...well, the little ones I've had I've managed to take care of with Tylenol. Still having hot flashes. Oh well.

I'll try to post tomorrow with an update on my estradiol and follicles. :)

Hi Wendy- I was just cruzing some oh fur fun IVF blogs ..(dripping with sarcasim) and read you entry about the pope. I also was 'raised' catholic. You said everything I think and put into words wonderfully! The C church doesn't make any sense and only infuriates me!

Hoping for a big +++++ in the next couple weeks!!
