IVF-day 12 - yank-n-bake

The Captain now refers to our IVF cycle as our Yank-n-Bake cycle. I love that man, he can make me smile in the worst of conditions.

Went to the RE this morning to do my baseline blood work and ultrasound. Everything is calm in there so I am stimming tonight. That's 3 shots tonight! As The Captain said to me Bang, Bang, Bang.

Injection #1 - Lupron - 5 units evening only from now on

Injection #2 - Follistim - 150 dose in Follistim pen

Injection #3 - Menopur - 1 powder mixed with 1 cc of liquid

Well the RE just called me back as I am typing this post to tell me that instead of coming in on Stimulation Day 5 they want to see me on Stimulation Day 4 because I already have 23 follicles! We haven't even starting any of the stimming drugs yet. Better safe than sorry to come in one day early to see if they need to lower my dose.

Getting excited. . .

6 lovely notes from friends:

WOOHOO!!! My first cycle of shots, I had like 40 something follicles. They wanted me to do IVF, but I didnt have the money to switch. Hope things cycle brings you lots of egg filled follicles that will leave you preggo with siblings for the future :)
Glad everything is going as planned!
