So, today is CD6, Stims Day 4. And apparently my body is just itching to overachieve. I went to my BW & US appointment this morning to see if any of my follies are starting to progress. The sonographer said she counted 13 on my right and 10 on my left!
Tonight, I will adjust my Gonal-F by 37.5 ius. I’m only taking 112.5 ius. The Menopur will remain the same dosage tonight BUT tomorrow a new friend joins the party….CETROTIDE!
Anywho, I start one vial of Cetrotide tomorrow AM. Now, what is tremendously awesome is comparing my first cycle to this one and seeing the similarities. Like my last Stims Day 4, I am starting to develop a headache. I had a nasty one hit me almost immediately after taking my Gonal-F/Menopur cocktail last night. It went away but today, about 1400 (2pm), I started having one live behind my eye. It almost feels like a migraine but isn’t. Also, returning to the party, just like last time is the bloat. I guess the follies really are trying to grow. I certainly won’t complain!
Nurse A. just called and confirmed all of my meds and scheduling. I return to the office on Stims Day 6, IVF CD 8, and we’ll see what happens then. Here is today’s breakdown and I hope you find it helpful.
