Lilypie Fourth Birthday tickers

Tuesday, October 28, 2008


So I should be hopeful, right? I went in Thursday for a blood draw and I was fully suppressed. Good news! I then added 4 mgs of estradiol and lowered the dose of lupron to 5 units. I went in on Saturday for a blood draw and my estradiol level was in the good range, so the donor is set to start her meds now. This is great, yes? Then why am I feeling so tired and hopeless. And why is my face breaking out? And I feel like I am barely able to keep any food down. And why does my boss tell me to quit thinking "inside the box" and "fly by the seat of my pants?" If he only knew how many hormones I am on. Or that I have become incomprehensibly gassy. Perhaps he wouldn't be so quick to have me fly by the seat of my pants. I could have just taken off from the seat I was in.........Gah. Bah. Bad Monday. OK, I'll quit whining now.

I know what you mean, I felt like I was just shooting up drugs and sort of detached from the process - blah! But now (today was ER day!) I suddenly realized from here on I'm the main character (well, hopefully best supporting actress!) Good luck - thinking of you.

That last comment was me - I'm having trouble with open ID (not just on your blog) and I mistyped!

I saw your blog via. Chance Worth Taking and started to read away... Congrats on getting to where you are... Wait, maybe not a congrats, but it's what we have to do to have a family and it is a blessing. We are here for a reason! Anyways... Ok, well, let me just say... If this cycle works (and I'm praying it does!) then get used to the hormones, it only gets worse! Oh, and the gas... Tell your DH to WATCH OUT! LOL! The hormones are awful, but it's really how you'll feel when pregnant. I can't wait to read more updates from you and I can't wait to be your cheerleader! Many prayers... Jojobee

Thanks for commenting on my blog. HAHAHHA about the gas and taking off. It's like a natural jet-pack.

Seems like we are in the exact same place with DE. I think my donor will start stims today or tomorrow. I'm fully suppressed and should start to take my estrodial today.

And like you am am suddenly tired, and sick and afraid. I have been on pins an needles to start this cycle and now I'm getting cold feet. I know it's the hormones and probably a normal feeling. I know I will be full speed ahead when things start to happen. You will be too.

Now I gotta go read your old posts to get to know you.
