I had my RE appt today to check follies. I did Femara last week & repronex over the weekend.  Really small was the outcome of today's visit.  


Last month on day 12, I had great looking ones like 17's & 18's, I still got a BFN, but at least I had some. 


Today the biggest was 15, the smallest 11.5, which she said probably won't even make it.  They called in more repronex (oh goodie - my stomach is so burned from the last 4 days, I can't wait til tonite to take MORE!) and b/c of the holiday, said they'll probably guesstimate me taking my HCG shot on Fri evening & BD'ing the weekend. 


Last nite, I know dh was concerned about me, but I wanted to cry (probably all the stupid drugs I'm pumping into myself) when he saw how red & hot my stomach was from the Repronex & how bruised it was on the top from the lovenox, he said, Is it really worth it to have another one?


I know he said it out of concern for me, he knows i'm in pain, but really, not what I need to hear during the treatments, especially as I'm trying to make my hand push the needle into my stomach.


::sigh::  such is life I guess - thanks for listening...

Terri is so right, all our DH's just want to "fix" us, and they just don't know how!

I'm sorry Melissa. Bad appointments always get me down. I can't imagine all you are going through with the injections.
