I didn’t do a great job of posting how my body was affected last time I cycled so I want to be sure to document this time. Tonight I will take my 5th dose of Follistim and my 3rd dose of Luveris. I am really feeling things going on down there. Yesterday I noticed it some and as the day went on I got a bit more uncomfortable. I attributed that to not having a bowel movement yesterday. Thankfully today I was able to rectify that issue and the discomfort is still there. It’s not total discomfort. I think I can explain it best like this: I can clearly feel each ovary. I am very aware that they are up to something. I can tell there are swollen little orbs on each side of my abdomen.
I definitely do NOT feel like having sex (sorry DH!) and thankfully today I have been able to stay in comfy clothes all day. My amazing husband cleaned our apartment yesterday while I was out getting prettied up. Almost brought me to tears again. That meant today I could really just relax and lay around and think about my ovaries all day.
I had to make my first call to the on-call nurse last night. I messed up my Luveris dosage. Stupid me injected air into the pressurized vial making some of the meds squirt out. My dosage last night was supposed to be 1/2 mL but it ended up being more like 3/5 mL. The nurse said it was totally fine and not to worry about it so I’m doing exactly that. Just posting my experience here so if this ever happens to you, you can try to relax too. DH did a wonderful job calming me down last night as this chaos was underway. I’m tapping into my mind-body connection and telling my brain to produce some of its own LH to make up for what I missed in my dose last night.
I’m looking forward to my scan tomorrow morning. Last time I had 10 follies after 4 days of stims. Fingers crossed I have as good of a report this time!
Okay, off to go read and distract myself!
