Stimming Day 3-4, In STL For First Follie Check

Started Repronex yesterday. I hate that bitch. Add in Lupron and Follistim (2x/day) and my "belly" is looking like a minefield. Oh well, I'm surviving.

Whatever it takes, whatever it takes....  ommmmmm.

So we're in our hotel room in STL watching television after a lackluster dinner and AWESOME shopping at TJ Maxx and Gordmann's! I got two huge framed photos for my office at work, only $18/each. That was my budget goal so I'm pretty darn thrilled.

I can tell the meds are working so I'm super-pumped for tomorrow's ultrasound and E2 results. I told DH today that my personal goals are to retrieve 20 follicles and have at least 10 to work with on transfer day with about 6 to freeze. That's all arbitrary because I know we can't control all that and every IVF-er would like those numbers.

I just want to be pregnant. I'll let you all know how tomorrow's appointment goes. Fingers crossed!

Hi Christa! I have been following your blog too- we are neighbors! Is there a reason you chose STL over UIHC? Just curious. Good luck tomorrow!!

Repronex is nasty stuff! The one good thing... for me the pain subsided with every shot so it shouldn't be so bad for your next shot. Hang in there!

Good luck -- I hope your E2 and follicle numbers are great!! I'm taking Gonal-F and menopur...does the repronex burn as much as menopur? It's terrible.
