So I just got my results back from my first “stim-check” baseline blood/ultrasound. My numbers are as follows:
Estradiol -421. LH-1.61.
Right Ovary-12 antral follicles. Left Ovary-13 antral follicles.
Apparently these numbers are good, but a little bit too good. They are dropping me down from 225 units of Gonal-F to 112 units. I guess this is a good sign that things are happening. I am also extremely relieved that I will be taking a lower dosage of meds. Although I have been feeling fine so far, I’ve been worried that eventually I would turn into a monster and wouldn’t be able to function. I even canceled plans we had for this Saturday night because I assumed that I would be in a such a tired, emotional and bitchy mood that I wouldn’t be that much fun to be around. Wow. Is it possible that I will be able to survive this process without losing my mind? Have I already lost it but just arent aware of it because I’m insane? I must be insane because I decided to take a 24 hour Real Estate licensure course this weekend (12 hours each day!). Meanwhile, my car is in the shop and my husband’s passenger side window is broken and wont close. Just picture me getting driven to and from class in my husband’s truck, riding around in a freezing snowstorm with a scarf around my head because my window is wide open. I am a glutton for punishment that is for sure.
This week will be fairly uneventful, but NEXT week is when the fun really starts. Im guessing I will trigger this Sunday- Yikes!
Ok, Im ready. Let’s get this motherfucker started.
