I can’t believe I’m already this far in to my cycle! Yesterday marked cd10 and I can’t believe how quickly this seems to be going. I was fortunate to have a fairly good weekend in terms of side effects and injections. I had the opportunity to have to inject myself outside of the house this weekend – once at my mother-in-law’s house and once in the bathroom at a Cineplex Odeon because we decided to see the 7 p.m. show and I typically take my injections at 7:30 p.m. Im basically a pro now so I can mix and shoot anywhere haha. So yesterday I had monitoring and I’m telling you I’ll never nail down a Monday morning ultrasound routine. I arrived at 6:35 a.m. and was already 4th (the clinic opens at 7 a.m.). This put me a bit behind yesterday but I’m lucky to have he support of my work on this. After’s yesterday’s ultrasound and bloodwork I was told I have one growing follicle (measured at 1.6 cm yesterday) and that the second one from Friday was basically a dud. Last night I started a second injection (Orgalutran) which will prevent me from ovulating until the follicle is the size they want it (around 1.8 to 1.9 cm). That one HURT. Not only is it a bigger needle so I felt like I had to stab harder, it burned. Hopefully I only have to take one or two more of these before I trigger.
Fast forward to today. I needed to monitor again this morning and wanted to be early so I showed up at 6:25 a.m. and I was finally first! Actually, there were only 2 of us this morning. I was in and out so fast and finally caught the train! Win. I’m now at 1.7cm so back for more monitoring tomorrow!
