Ninde - Which shots do you think are making you dizzy? That's not good. I always did mine at night though so it matters less if there are any side-effects. Glad to hear you are taking it easy. So hard to do going through this. Medrol is a steroid that is supposed to theoretically help prevent my body from rejecting the embryo. My RE seems to do a lot of meds compared to some.
suzyq - Same as you, I will learn my exact transfer time on the 14th! They do all their OR procedures during the same time window during the day and won't know until the day before if they are going to also have any retrievals that morning which they do first. I don't know why, but I was so keyed up this morning over starting all the pills & progesterone today. Guess it's kind of like the "beginning of the end" of the cycle. My RE does lots of meds, but doesn't do any blood testing leading up to an FET. I only had to do the two ultrasounds. Hopefully my levels are good anyway!
tmiddle - Welcome! Know that the cycles don't really get that much easier, so we are all in the same boat feeling crazy!
Ten eggs is a very respectable number to work with. We also had to do ICSI - I presume you are doing a 5 day transfer? With the progesterone, don't put ice on it right away because it thickens the oil so it doesn't disperse as well. Use heat at first, then cold later if it's still sore. I looked pregnant before I even had a transfer for fresh cycles, the swelling and discomfort is totally normal. Your ovaries were working overtime!
Tawny - Wow, that's kind of crazy that you don't know yet what you're doing next? Do you have all your medications yet? For all my cycles I have used a mail-order pharmacy, and they would send me a box o' drugs at the start of my cycle that had EVERYTHING I needed for the entire thing. PIO shots are Progesterone In Oil.
(Aside: To make all you ladies feel good about how tough we and/or our DH's are to give us these shots -- all my cycles I got facial flushing from the progesterone which my RE said was not a normal reaction. Since I have a lot of weird allergies, they had my allergist test to make sure I wasn't allergic to it. One of the nurses told me they were all so relieved when DH gave me the shot because it is so difficult to do that all the nurses were nervous about it!)
AFM - We were supposed to get our security system installed today between 9am and 11am. Company just called to tell me that the technician is running a little late. It's 2:15pm. Talk about getting a newsflash from the land of NO SHIT!
