Hoops and Hurdles - Let the Real Game Begin!
Well, we are finally here! I had my RE appointment this morning where they did b/w and u/s. The u/s showed that my uterus is fine and that both ovaries are still free of cysts. I have a minimum of 14 "follicles in waiting". These are all the reserve follicles that will be "stimmed" by the meds. I will begin my 150 IU follistim shots tonight. I will go back on Tuesday of next week for monitoring (b/w and u/s) to see how things are progressing. From that point, the monitoring will really pick up.
Above is a picture of the follistim "pen" that is used for dosing and injection. It comes with a pre-filled cartridge, and I just have to dial-up the correct dose, attach the needle, and shoot up. I am thinking that I will use my thighs for these shots, since I have already been doing all the lupron shots in my belly. This will give more surface area with which to work.
