More Menopur

I went to the doctor last night. I got my blood drawn and then a "WANDA" scan! I have 16 eggs! Basically, I have 8 eggs in my Left ovary and 8 in my Right as well. The biggest are 14-15mm. She said that is good for my 8th day! The goal is to get them to 18-20mm. I have a bit further to go. So... Now I have to take 5 menopurs/2 water injections.
1) 3 powder/1 water (Injection into one thigh)
2) 2 powder/ 1 water (Injection into the other thigh)
3) Gustavo also gives me an injection at home... To keep my ovaries sleeping
 
 


We go back on Tuesday! I am hoping that they will be big and fat! I do not know if we are going to do the retrieval on Thursday or Saturday... But I do know that it will be this week! And that is exciting. It is taking longer then I expected it would. This is day 34! Not that I did something EVERY day!
I am ready to get everything done! I know that the WORST thing will be waiting to see if I am pregnant! That will be the longest WAIT! With everything that we have coming up, I think that I will be busy enough to keep my mind occupied!
I am already making the vacation calendar! So much to do!

Ready.... Break? Huh???

Anyone who knows me... Knows that I am a planner. I plan EVERYTHING. It gives me a silent type of enjoyment... Stability. I feel like I have SOME control (When I really know I have ZERO!)

Sometimes I hate that I am the way that I am. Organized... Analytical and Systematic. SMH. I am NOT much fun!

So, my period came... Right on time... And I went to the doctor. Gave some blood... And then went back a couple of hours later to see the doctor. I knew that I would be getting my BASELINE ultrasound. What I didn't know is that he was measuring my womb. After "Wanda" left.
(BTW: This is "WANDA")
 




I felt the "Cervix opener" go in...
 

Meet MR. Speculum!!!

 Click click (I hate that sound) and then out of NO WHERE... PAIN! I grabbed that wall and the doctor said, "Stay still" (Can I get some FREAKING warning!!!???) What the hell is going on in there!? The pain brought tears to my eyes! First, I felt it on the Left side, then the Right side! It felt like the doctor STUCK needles into my tubes!
After a minute it was over... And I finally started to breathe. The nurse gave me a tissue... I wasn't sure if I should wipe my face or my "Pocket Book"!!!
The doctor then gave me some BAD news... EID is coming so we are going to have to DELAY our cycle... Hmmm (I knew this was going to happen!!! I mentioned it to Gustavo weeks ago)

He told me to STOP taking my injections at home... (I still have 7 left) then he gave me a prescription.... I went and got the meds... Came back upstairs and WOW! I got a shot in my Left buttocks! It burned! So bad! The needle was big and the nurse had to mix the medicine... It was the same meds I have been taking. Just a much LARGER dosage 3.75 mg



So What is NEXT???
I have to go back to the doctor NEXT week (the 10th) to get my NEW meds and then on the 12th to get an injection... AND THEN,  I have to see the doctor on the 19th. (That is when he will check to see if my eggs are big enough) Pray for BIG FAT HEALTHY EGGS! (20mm)

Gustavo is going to Dubai the week that I should be giving my eggs... but I NEED him with me though. As his part will have to be performed on that same day! We will know more about this SOON.

How am I feeling???
I must say... I am in pain. Cramps are awful and LOWER back pain. I swear I want to punch Gustavo in the face everytime he gives me an injection... I feel like he doesn't understand the pain that I am in. Sometimes I just start crying for no reason and I am mean! But I have an excuse!

September 18th 2013- Hysteroscopy


What a day! I took 2 pills at 0700... And then to the doctor at 0800. Me and Karina sat there until 0830 when they assigned me a room...
***Make sure you shave ANYTIME you are about to go and get a procedure done!*** (I learned that the HARD way this morning... I met a razor with only 2 blades, I didm't know that they still made those!!!) 
The nurse was RUSHING me... Then I get to the surgery floor... And they said that there was a couple of emergencies.... So... Back to my room. I went back around 1115. They had me staged with two other women... They took me first though!:) Once in the operating room... They positioned me on a special bed where the end of the bed comes off. They had me put my legs up around a black pole on each side and then my feet into stirrups. I promise I felt like an ANIMAL at this very moment. Finally they covered me up as I was out in the open for all 20 people in there to see my... "PocketBook"! I looked over to my right side and saw the man who was going to put me to sleep. He gave me Propofol. It looked like Milk! Within 15-30 seconds... I was KNOCKED OUT! I woke up in the recovery room. I was taken back to my room. I looked down at my "PocketBook" and saw that there was Iodine all over down there. So I went to the bathroom to clean myself up. I drank a little bit and then waited for the doctor to come in. Once she did... She gave me medicine (antibiotics to avoid infection) I was given Flagyl 400 mg, Doxycycline 100 mg, Flucozal 150 mg and Warimazol Vag 200 mg (That is a tablet that I have to insert into my "Pocketbook" for 3 days.) 
Karina came and picked me up and we went to grab something to eat. I was about 1330 by then. When she pulled up to my villa, I told her my head hurt and I felt like I would be sick...
Oh My GAWDDD!!! I threw up everything that I ate... AND some. It was so painful! I just kept heaving! Not the best experience! I couldn't stop and my head was killing me! Talking was painful! And I was shaking cold!!! I felt like I was freezing!
I finally fell asleep and then I was up at 1700 to go back to the doctor. I took Mims with me and I didn't have to wait long. Although I know there was a LOT of people that were there before me! (Thank you!!!) I spoke to the doctor. He gave me a prescription for my injections and for folic acid. I asked him what were my statistics of getting pregnant now that he has had a look... He said 60%! I think that is good! As long as it keeps rising!
I got my prescriptions and then came back up to get my first injection. It was not so bad. I have to take one injection for 21 days in my arms. Alternate arms everyday. So I have a LOT of medicine to take for the next week... And then injections. I have to go back after my period starts. The second day of my period, that will be the NEXT STEP!
Thanks Karina!!! I appreciate having our GIRL time and you taking care of me today!!! 
Here are a couple of pictures that I took today!
