And away we go...

Today is CD3, so I hauled my rather large rump to the clinic. First time cycling through Dr. H 2.0's office and I felt like such a newbie. The clinic was jumping, I couldn't believe how many people were in the office. It was like a very complicated game of musical chairs, one person gets called in another takes the seat and so on. I had my full bladder external utlrasound, internal ultradsound and blood work, not necessarily in that order. All looked good, no fibroids etc etc. I have 6 antrals, that's pretty good for me and my dusty ovaries.

Here's how it breaks down. 6 antrals, one small cyst on the left, but not enough to stop me from cycling. FSH was 8.9 and E2 was 69. All in all, pretty good for this old cat.

I started my puregon tonight - 300ius. I did 300 ius during my IVF cycle, but it was divided up 150 twice a day. So, I never had the true pleasure of giving myself the full dose until tonight. Holy mother that hurt. Not going in, but after it stung. H. was calling me a "big girl" the whole time I was moaning. Not funny.

I would like to say thank-you to Sandra D. for nominating me for the Sisterhood Award. So, thank-you. I was very touched by it! I will come back and post about the awared and do my own nominations later. Have to ruminate on it a little bit.

For those of you keeping track, I go back on Wednesday for a follow up ultrasound and bloodwork. Oh and I also have the pleasure of having to book an SHG this week. Boo!

Edited to Add: SHG has now been booked for Friday at 1pm.

Hi there...

I have been following ur site for a while now. Just have never commented. You and me are very close to each other in terms of the cycle. At the Puregon Stage. N believe me I know what you mean by the Puregon stings. I only had to take 200 units and I cringe everytime.

Good luck to you and do persevere...

Very best of luck with this cycle, I know the Puregon feeling too! I find that it helps to inject very slowley and not to press to hard on the needle!
