Please Hurry FedEx!

The doctors appointment went well! I now have 7 follicles that are above 10mm with one weighing in at 19mm (we will probably lose this one as it will be overmatured by the time we have egg retrieval).  My lining is also thickening up and is now 10mm which is great, and my estrogen level just about tripled to around 630. 

With these results, the doctors decided to up my meds yet again. This wouldn't be a huge problem except that I have NO additional Follistim which is the drug they want to up.  I was on 75 units, then 150, and now 225.  I'm currently waiting on a package from FedEx which was shipped for overnight delivery. The problem is I'm supposed to take these meds at the same time every day, and I normally take them at 10 AM (and it is 9:55 AM currently) Ugh. Please FedEx..hurry!!

Other than that, my dear CF friend really helped me out with some issues over bowels, and after taking some miralax, I FEEL AWESOME. I have NO pain. It feels AWESOME. My ovaries don't even hurt anymore (unless I walk), so I feel amazing. Without the horrendous pain, I'm able to focus on the beauty of what we are going through that much more. I love it!!

I hope everyone is having a great day!


  1. I'm glad the pain is better! My ovaries and EVERYTHING hurts much worse when I am having gut problems. (Which is all the time, lol....) Good luck with the rest of the meds & then progesterone!

  2. Talk about added stress!! I wish the dr would have prescribed you more follistem. Our IVF journey had extra stress that could have been avoided as well! I hope you received your medicine before noon. Looks like you will be getting those eggs retrieved soon :) As far as us we are having the baby shower tomorrow. There will be close to 40 people!!! Well good luck as always and keep us posted on how things are going!! Enjoy the rest of your weekend.
