Stimulation Meds – Day 2

To start out I would like to welcome anyone here from ICLW!!  You came here right at the perfect time!!  Please forgive these boring posts (that I’m spewing out everyday).  Especially the three I shot out today, which according to the date of this post, is actually tomorrow.  That would make today, yesterday or, vice -versa.  Now that the confusion is cleared up, the reason I’m dumping a bunch of posts on you at once, is because I fell a little behind in writing when we got started with the stimulation meds. 

Anyway, we are currently involved in a cycle, and I like to try to document everything.  Yep, that means annoying, daily posts, that only provide information.  I’ll try and throw some emotions and humor in every once in a while, but I’m not promising anything!!  So lets get to the meat and potatoes for today!!

Jess decided to do her injection tonight a little earlier than last night.  I think the same thing happened last cycle.  The meds are making her have some trouble sleeping.  The last cycle, we pushed them 15 minutes earlier each day until she felt comfortable when she went to bed.  Nothing else ground breaking to report, some hot and cold flashes, injection site pain, etc…  Jess is again taking it like a champ.  She does her shots and gets right back to doing what she was doing.  For me, on the other hand, I am a big baby.  I don’t have to inject myself with anything with any adverse reactions, I only have to take my doxycycline and then complain about how it upsets my stomach.  I want sympathy too!!!  😉

Today’s Meds – Jess’ Injections – Menopur(2 vials and 1/2 cc diluent) and Follistim (300Units).  Kenny  200mg of stomach splitting doxycycline!!!!!! 🙁

    YEAH! More doses down! I was at Michaels today, and I saw some purple pom poms for 2 dollars and I almost bought them. then for you to cheer Jess on.
    Doxy is no joke- that stuff does make your stomach flip out. Blah. Sorry.

    Dropping by from ICLW. Loving this daily diary thing you got going on, and also the fact that you (the guy) are writing it from your perspective. Good luck to the both of you! Will be following.

    It’s always refreshing to get the male perspective in all of this. It isn’t often that you get to read about it. So thanks for that.

    That said, I’m sorry that you find yourself here. It’s not somewhere anyone would choose to be, but you and your wife seem to be handling it well. A good attitude will take you along way!

    Good luck in the cycle!
