Sitting in the Dr.’s office reading Elle one becomes keenly aware of how life is measured when in the midst of infertility treatments; Silk Oscar De La Renta Pumps $680.00 OR one Follistim pen, Black Leather Dolce & Gabbana Satchel Bag-$1,600.00 OR our third shipment of meds.  The price factor has been just terrible, god awful, horrible, no good, pah-tooie.  Thinking you’re going to be paying a ballpark sum of around $2,500 then realizing it will be double that?  Um, not the most ideal situation…unless your Bill Gates and wipe your ass with hundred dollar bills.

We had our third ultrasound today.  So far so good.  Started naming our Follies just for shits and giggles…Wally, Polly, Molly.  I am glad to see we have a few more than last time but am still waiting to hear back exact details along with my E2 stats hopefully later today.

Physically:  The bloat continues.  I am beginning to feel my left ovary when I sit curled up and my right every now and then depending on my sitting position. Bruising is starting to show on my lower abdomen from the shots, but nothing severe.

Mentally: I go from ecstatic to tears in a New York minute.  I do notice that hormonal shift that has happened and it’s very odd.  Just trying to remain cautiously optimistic about all this.  I just can’t think beyond the next ultrasound.  Lilly pad to Lilly pad, that’s the way for me.

 

*Update: Heard back from Dr.’s office!  We got follies!

R. Ovary: 14mm, two@11mm & two@10mm.

L. Ovary: 12.5mm, 11.5mm, 10.5mm, 10mm & two@12mm.

E2 : 494

I asked about the estrogen level because it seemed low to me, but nurse said even though they would like to see it a little higher, it has risen considerably from the last lab, so onward we go.

Sometimes you get good news, sometimes you get bad news.  Today we got an inkling of good news…my estrogen levels are <32.  Small thing, right?  Big thing to me.  Hey, I’m taking all I can get these days.

We met with Dr. C today and had our teaching.  It really is something to sit there and talk through all of these shots you will eventually be either given or be giving yourself.  *Gulp.  Amazing how you just push yourself to get over the fear of needles right quick. 

Chris spent the better portion of this afternoon pricing out our meds, seeing if we could cut some cost down.  He is a prince.  Our situation is unique since my three month Lupron stint has me supressed already and we need to jump on that fact quickly.  Unfortunately, this leave us less than 48 hours to firm up our financing, get our meds and clear the time for our next ultrasound.  Oy. VEY.

But, here we go…ready or not.
