Ultrasound and Blood Work

I'm feeling a little better today. I have actually had a headache every day for the past six days. Maybe the headaches are done! (Or maybe I'm just being really optimistic...)

We had a fun night out last night. We went to see Chelsea Handler's comedy show with a friend of ours. She is so funny - I laughed so much. I think I really needed to do something like that - it took my mind off of things for a while.

............................

I had my ultrasound and bloodwork done yesterday. I have 6 follicles (3 one each side.) They are fairly small. I didn't ask for actual sizes at this point. My estrogen (E2) level was at 211. I have to keep my dosages the same and go back in tomorrow morning for another ultrasound and more bloodwork.

I'm waiting for more Bravelle to be delivered. When the original order was sent to me, I wasn't sent enough. I was actually 52 vials short! That's a lot of vials to be missing. Hopefully they will arrive on Monday or Tuesday at the latest. That's the last thing I need to stress about at this point.

I'm so glad you were able to get out and have some fun.

It sounds like you are starting to get some good response to the meds with a nice 6-pack growing. I hope the headaches start to subside. Is your Lupron decreased now? Hopefully that should help. Good luck tomorrow and keep us posted!!!

Grrr on the missing meds. I had the same issue happen twice because our nurse liked to write on the margins of the paper and then the number would get cut off on the fax so I got 6 Endometrin instead of 63. *eyeroll*

No, they didn't decrease my Lupron. I don't know why I don't have a headache, but I'm not complaining!

That's funny - a 6 pack! (I had a crazy image of a 6 pack of beer in my head...what's wrong with me?)

Wendy--I tagged you for six random things about yourself!

It's amazing what a night out can do - even the smallest things can help to de-stress.

Sounds like you are progressing nicely with your meds. What's up with forgetting to deliver 52 vials?! Hopefully you didn't have to pay extra for that?
