I went to the doctor today for a check up, to turn in my paperwork for the hospital and to learn how to do HcG and Progesterone shots. EEEK! (These needles are huge, y’all) I have about a dozen follicles on each ovary, my ovaries are HUGE and now they are so big they are touching each other. My endometrial lining was a 12!!!! Yay!!
- Lupron 0.1mg at 8pm (last day is 8/25)
- Metformin 500mg once daily at dinner
- HcG shot, 5,000 IUs at midnight (8/25)
- Azithromycin daily for 5 days
- Can I get a Woot woot for no more Menopur?!?!?!?
Vitamins: Fish oil (twice a day), B6 (twice a day), Calcium Citrate (twice a day), Vitamin D (prescription), Provella and a Prenatal vitamin
Current symptoms: A little bit of a full feeling after I eat or drink. Constant trips to the bathroom. I have been a little depressed lately. Dr. Bundren keeps insisting that I smile.
Mental state: Fear over my HcG shot, going under anesthesia, pain from progesterone shots and overall fear of pain and anything/everything bad that can occur. When I left the doctor’s office I really questioned all of my decisions ever made up until this point. I’m even questioning whether or not I really want to have kids. What the heck is this about? Has anyone ever experienced this? I did spend all day trying work whilst getting our financing in order via telephone so it is to be expected that I would be stressed.
Retrieval is scheduled for Wednesday at 11am. Goodness. Pray for me.
