IVF underway
178

Rather than flooding the board with multiple posts about my cycle, considering its not your usual TTCAM, I will just have this thread and update here as needed.

I had my first u/s today. The call-back nurse said to take my last BCP tonight and let AF arrive this weekend (should be brief since she said my lining was expectedly thin). I will start stimming on Monday: 175IU Follistim

So I had another follie scan today. They're all growing bigger. The largest is 13.8 so I start ganirelix tonight. She predicted only three more days of stimming with three shots per day. I just want as many mature follies as possible. But that'll make my ER on Saturday. I wonder which of the 5 REs in my clinic is on weekend duty next weekend. I hope my primary RE, Dr. P. But they've all been in my privates at some point in the last year with my many IUIs.

I got pictures from this morning, but my computer scanned it as a pdf and I don't see where/how I can attach that.

13.8 is good! Do you have the measurements of the rest? Just trying to get some idea of how many you'll end up with by ER time! I feel you on the dr's - my practice was the same way. Sometimes I didn't even meet them for the first time until they were telling me to pull my pants down LOL

She didn't tell me the size of the rest, just that two are 13.8 and there are LOTS of others. When I saw them on the screen, the rest looked in the 10-11mm range and all were abt the same size. I will def find out Tues. I started the ganirelix an hr ago so the biggun's are going to hang in there a few days yet.

Ok, I don't think I've mentioned s/e yet. Headaches. Pretty much daily. Totally manageable by tylenol, so that's ok. Stims in general cause my ovaries to hurt, so right now I'm walking around practically holding my belly because I feel like I am full of painful marbles. We went to the gym on Friday and the stationary bike made me feel like I was just kicking my future children. Bearing down to pee hurts. But that's like it was for all my IUIs, so ok.

But above all - my heart condition is acting up BIG time. I am on metoprolol and have been for over a year, but I am having breakthrough palpitations. And just the past 3 days some dizzy and fainting spells. The first fainting spell happened on a rug, but last night...tile.

Oh yuck Chouli :( I'm sorry it gives you such a hard time. I really think this is it for you and that you don't have to deal with this for another cycle!! :)

(((Chouli))) I think that first paragraph of s/e's would keep me from doing IVF, but the dizzy and fainting spells? Oh boy. I get dizzy spells on occasion, but never have fainted. I hope that your new "standing up protocol" helps keep those spells at bay! Be careful!
