hello to all my sisters! i figured i'd catch up on some personals while i count down to needle time!
here i am! stimming is going fine...gonal-f feels like an old friend by now..i feel like i can jab myself in my sleep....since i didnt use repronex last cycle i'm getting to know her all over again...she's a lot more tricky with all that mixing and needle changing! also it makes me bruise everytime!
i'm glad your AF is already going away...what a b-i-t-c-h! are you still on track to the same start day?
latrell and cal4242
WELCOME!! trust me it is VERY normal to be confused and scared the first cycle (and the 2nd and 3rd...) what we are going through is never easy, but joining us will help i promise! we are all here for you! any questions, just ask away!
i'm not exactly sure about the tea. i'm drinking 3 cups a day right now. it just tastes so good and it calms my nerves. i know my RE says not to take herbal supplements, but the ingredients for the tea seem pretty basic and not harmful. i might stop drinking it after ER just to be safe. they have other great tea there for stress relief which may be helpful for you during the 2ww! i had my acupuncture appointment today and then again on tuesday. i am going as often as i can, and using it as PMA that i will make it to ER this time!
i cant believe you are going to india!! how long will you be gone for? morning sickness and indian food?? good luck with that! because you know you will be preggers! haha
gonal-f has extra in it too. i always keep the little bit of extra in each pen just incase i need an extra dose and run out..i can give myself like 20 shots to add up to the dose i need! its not fun, but like samgarkay
said..its liquid gold! how is your DH? how often do you get to talk? does he get to come home anytime soon?
are you a teacher? my DH teaches 8th grade and he hates it haha buncha no good spoiled brats....he wants 5th grade, but there are no openings around here at all. gonal-f is a breeze for me by now...i wish all the shots where that easy. so far so good...i hope these follies are growing!!
OMG OMG OMG!! that is just great news! your RE saying that must make you filled with hope and joy!! PMA PMA PMA! i'm do excited for you!
how are you feeling today? i hope the cramps are gone!
no caffeine in the tea! they also have a store online that you can order from so you dont have to go all the way up to LA! i am super jealous of your warm weather....we are freezing here! any sign of AF yet?
someone asked me about my acupuncture and where they put the needles, but i cant remember who....sorry....everytime i go they put the needles in different places depending on my cycle day. since i started stims they have been putting a bunch in my stomach (whats a few more pokes right?) then they mostly focus on my arms, hands, legs and feet...sometimes they put some in my ears and my forehead. they are treating me for endo, and trying to get my follies to respond better to the meds, and also for stress release.
nothing new to report..just stimming away. i had acupuncture today and feel asleep for 2 hours!! haha crazy! i have to get up wicked early tomorrow and go down to reading ma. just to get bloodwork done...i figure while we are out we will get some breakfast and try to find an early movie...anything to keep me busy so i'm not sitting at home waiting for the nurse to call me...that is seriously my least favorite part of all this...the waiting for the phone calls....it is enough to make me lose my mind. so if i can get out of the house and keep my cell out of my view i will stay alot calmer!
alright...time for my repronex! good night everyone!
