Stimulation meds are underway in the Kramlik household. We are still on Lupron, but have added Follistim and Menopur. Which are Leprechaun, Fossil Fuel, and Megatron if you are Mate. I thought that I was going to be lucky because everyone says that the Menopur burns like a mother trucker, but on Friday night when we got to start it, no burning for me. Saturday night was a completely different story, let’s just say that it burned like there was no tomorrow and I said a very long string of not nice words. I always wait though to say anything until Mate is all done administering the shots so that I don’t freak him out. With his needle phobia I try to tread lightly, I need him to be able to keep doing the shots. I pretty sure now that I really can’t do them myself.
Today was out second ultrasound and the Doctor said that I am responding well to the medications. I had to give blood since they wanted to check my estradiol level. I have to have it done out of my hands, I have zero veins in my arms, and the first nurse that tried to do it missed. The second one came in and got it right away, thank GOD!!! That means today I will have gotten poked 6 times!!! I would do it all over again if it means that we are one step closer to having a baby. I just keep reminding myself of that before, during, and after every needle poke. It will all be worth it in the end.
I will be back at the Doctor on Wednesday and Friday this week so far that I know of. Initially they were telling me that I could be looking at Sunday for the HCG trigger shot. I really am just going with the flow of things and letting whatever happen, just happen. These Doctors are supposed to be the best at what they do so I am trying to just let them do there jobs. I don’t typically question very much, maybe that’s a bad thing, but it’s how I am rolling for now.
My emotions have been all over the place too. Sometimes the littlest thing can make me start to cry, get bitchy, be crazy happy, or just get plain stupid. Do any of you other ladies get stupid brain?? I had it full force up in here last week. I kept telling my boss I feel like I am getting stupid. I would try to form sentences and nothing but a bunch of babble would come out. I really think that your brain goes to your uterus before there is even a baby in there.
If you want to see a video of one of the shots being done, check out my Instagram page. Well it’s all most time for another round of shots…sure wish it was the kind in a glass. Happy Poking!!
