So I complained a little via text message and phone call to some understanding friends and family! (Sometimes a girl just needs to vent!) I felt guilty when I did it because #1) Some of them have done IVF which I know is worse than this! and #2) I would really do anything to have a baby and I did choose to do this!
So, about the time I stopped complaining my phone rang and it was my nurse with my blood test results. My levels went up, but not as much as they had hoped. She explained that they weren't concerned yet and figured I was just slow to get rolling. (This has happened to me every time!) But because we had decided to be more aggressive this time, the blood test meant a change in my medication. I'll now do two injections of the Lupron daily (one in the morning and one at night) and two injections of the HMG everyday (one in the morning and one at night).
That will teach me to complain about 2 shots a day... now I get to do 4!!!
I'm most concerned that the Lupron-induced headaches will be really bad now that I have to take two of them and that the added medication is going to quickly cost us much more money than we had planned. Please pray with us that the medication will start to work quickly and that the side-effects will decrease! Thanks so much!!
