Day 39 (cycle day 11) – Halloween!

Today is not about stimming – its about CANDY! Somehow we managed to get the shots in, in between the doorbell ringing of trick-or-treaters! Yup, we’ve become a lightening fast team. Scary! (Almost as scary as Halloween!)

Since we have been using my very first cartridge with 900 units of Follistim, at 300 a day today was “supposedly” the last day to use it. However, we learned that these cartriges are overloaded, so there’s actually a bit of meds left in there. As a result, I’m thinking about attempting two Follistim shots tomorrow, in order to use up the bit left in the cartrige. We’ll see how that goes.

It also hit me today that Thanksgiving this year is on the 23rd!! For some reason I thought it was the 30th – silly me! THis means that I will likely be finding out my beta right around thanksgiving – which will likely mean that I will be delayed another 4 days since the office will be closed for holidays. How will I survive??

Well.. by trying not to jump the gun and worrying about tomorrow’s problems I suppose.

I got called today by a fellow IVFer who wished me a Happy Halloween. How sweet. We’re in the same IVF program but different docs. I’m a little ahead with starting stims already so was happy to tell her that there’s nothing to be scared of.

So far so good. Happy Halloween!
