Stimulation Meds – Day 6 (Add Cetrotide)

The day started off for me waking up to a phone call from the RE.  Jess was on her way to work, and I was still sleeping.  Now the first thing you think of when the doc is calling that early in the morning on a day your not even scheduled to go there, is that something must be wrong.  Fortunately for Jess the nice doc was just calling to tell her that she should could come in today instead of tomorrow because of the snowicanes impending doom!!  Unfortunately for me, I was unable to get my beauty sleep (believe me I need it!!)!  My little sidekick Keena thinks that when the phone rings, it’s time to get up!!  That is her alarm clock!!  Oh well, I guess I’ll live!!  It definitely makes it a hell of a lot easier now that we don’t have to try and trek out tomorrow morning in all the snow.  Enough about me, let’s move on to Jess.

Jess had to leave work early to get to the docs office today for her unscheduled surprise blood test and ultrasound.  Isn’t she lucky, she got to do it 2 days in a row!!  It’s kind of like practice for when they make her come everyday.  That should be coming soon!  We won’t be able to get any results from the blood work until tomorrow, and the ultrasound showed the same follicles as yesterday, but a whole lot more small ones!! (Grow Follies, Grow!!!)  The doc said to continue her meds the same with the addition of the extra Cetrotide shot tonight, and that they would call tomorrow with the blood test results.  Unfortunately for Jess, the addition of the Cetrotide, means the addition of another subcutaneous shot. 😥

As for symptoms, Jess began getting the migraines again, like she did last cycle. In fact on the exact same cycle calendar day.  It was pretty bad for her today.  When she got home from the docs office, she took a long nap.  When she woke up, she felt a little better but it was still lingering in the back of her head.  The doc prescribed her some pain meds, so hopefully I can get out tomorrow and get them filled.  I’m not quite sure how much snow we are going to get, so I don’t know when or if I will be able to get out.  It’s looking like around a foot, so if that’s the case, I will be able to get out, but not till afternoon.  The (2) shots tonight, were a bit worse than normal.  Jess had a little more pain than normal, and some itching that she never had before.  It could be the addition of the Cetrotide, but who knows.  It’s been almost a year since the last cycle, so I don’t remember everything.  Let’s just hope that this is the worst of the worst!!  If it is, I know she can handle it, she is a trooper!!  Plus, it will be well worth it in the end!!

Today’s Meds – Jess’ Injections – Menopur(2 vials and 1/2 cc diluent) and Follistim (300Units), Add Cetrotide shot as well (.25mg).  Kenny  200mg  of doxycycline (ouchy on my tummy :-()

    Good luck with this cycle! I hope she gets some relief from her migraines. I was so thankful when my doc gave me vicodin for mine.

    I’m impressed, I should say. Really rarely should i encounter a blog that’s both educative and entertaining, and without a doubt, you could have hit the nail within the head. Your thought is outstanding; the catch is something that insufficient folks are speaking intelligently about. I’m really pleased i always came across this around my hunt for something about it.
