, that's what I've been told about injections, too. And I was told to keep my lupron out of the fridge. All I have in the fridge is my Gonal-F pen. But the REAL reason I logged on is to say GOOD LUCK TODAY!!!!
Oh, and I freaking HATE poas. It makes me neurotic.
So I'm there with ya. I'll be taking HCG shots after my IVF anyway, so POAS won't tell me anything.leslie
I miss you!blueyezz
, how was your first shot? How exciting, you started!
Sorry it took me a couple days to get back in here and try to answer your questions. I take menopur and gonal-F in combination. The theory is that the menopur helps at the beginning to stimulate more follicle growth, and in my experience it did. My gonal-F comes in a pre-filled syringe with settings for measured doses. I'm told it needs to stay in the fridge for it to last a long time. The menopur does not need to be refrigerated, but I get it in powder form and have to mix it daily.
I start lupron/estrace on Tuesday, and I take them for five days. Then I wait for my period and have my baseline appointment. If all looks good, I start the lupron and estrace again, and also start the gonal-F and menopur on about day 3. I am SO hoping to be pregnant NOW so we don't have to do all that.
And my sister
, yes, she's my hero: 11lb 2oz natural delivery at home. She took some ibuprofen after Maggie was delivered to help with the pain from the stitches. Her first baby was 10lb 7oz, also natural delivery. We were all thrilled it was so quick this time, since with Nell it was 40 hours.
afm - this week is parent/teacher conference week, so I'm going to be a little overwhelmed. I guess I need to think about my shot schedule, since on Thursday I'll be at school until at least 8:30.
Ugh... But after this week, things calm down a lot. Just report cards to think about, which are time consuming, but I can pace myself. I can't believe we're gearing up for IVF, I'm so excited!
How's everybody else doing? Please check in! Court
, it's mid-October, any news?
