still cookin'

I asked about Friday's b/w results when I revisted the RE's office on Sunday for another blood draw and an encounter with the fabled dildo-cam. As of CD7, E2 was 442. CD9 results included 6 measurable follicles on the right, 7 on the left, and an E2 of 1113. Once again, my Gonal-F dosage remained unchanged. I report back again first-thing tomorrow, CD11, for another blood draw and u/s.

At this rate, I'll be out of Gonal-F after Wednesday morning's shot. Unless you count the unknown amount remaining in each pen once the 900 known units have been dispensed. I'm not desperate enough yet to seriously consider administering 4 injections to achieve a meager 150U dose, but ask me again on Wednesday when it's that or spend another $600 for an additional pen. I hope it doesn't come to that, and I'm praying I'll be told to trigger tomorrow night for a Thursday ER/Sunday ET. I'm considering driving myself to the hospital for the ET if it lands on a week day so C won't have to take more time off. He's definitely going with me for the ER- I wouldn't want anyone else there.

As far as the trigger shot goes, I asked C to administer it when the time comes. His family doesn't know we're cycling this time. My SIL, a nurse who loves just half a mile away, gave me the trigger shots in 2009. My parents know because they're watching Charlotte every time I have an appointment, but I don't want to involve anyone else in this. So, when I go to the RE tomorrow, I'll bring a sharpie and ask one of the nurses draw a bullseye on my tush where the shot should go. C gave me my first IF injection, and if this cycle works he'll also give me my last.

  1. I'll cross my fingers that you have a great u/s and get to trigger before you need more meds!
