Day 36 (cycle day 8) – Last Lupron Day!

October 28, 2006 at 7:34 pm 2 comments

Ok, technically this was the last lupron day PRIOR to stims.

I will actually be continuing my lupron shot in the exact same dosage all the way to retrieval. I guess I’ll be way used to this injection. Hey, I might even miss it. But today was my last pre-stim day.

I took my 16th lupron shot, no problem. Has anyone wondered how all those shots fit into that TINY little bottle? I would have thought it is enough for just one shot, but apparently it is enough for all 16 days AND all the stim days ahead. Wow.

Today, I didn’t think about IVF or upcoming stims much. Why not just relax and enjoy my day for a change. We had a Halloween party to go to tonite and we had a blast. I’m so glad I had accepted the invite – cause back when it was sent out I was concerned that I might be on the brink of retrieval by now! Ha! As it turns out I haven’t even started stimming yet.
Oh well – all’s well that ends well. The ending is the most important thing.

And today, what ends is my Lupron phase.

    I thought the same thing about that little Lupron bottle but it jus kept on coming out. I am now onto the progesterone shots and I am feeling the same way.

    Good luck with your upcoming stims. Regarding your party invite – it is amazing how long this whole IVF anf TTC process takes. I thought I would be knocked up by now.

    16 antral follies sounds great–and I totally understand what you mean by not knowing what’s ahead of you. I had to tell my boss “now I’ll be taking some days off here and there, but I won’t know excatly when until they arrive…”

    I’ll be checking back with you–go follies!
