I now await my period so I can go in for a baseline ultrasound which will hopefully give us the "all clear" to move ahead with stimulation.
Gonal-F is in my future hopefully. 225 units too. That is a LOT of Gonal- F for me. My last follistim IUI cycle only used 37.5 units. Gosh, that needle is going to be inside me for awhile as I slowly press the plunger. Eeek.
I'm not going to stress about it though. I am content at the moment and am enjoying it. I am trying to take things as they come and not look too far ahead a freak myself out. So far that is working.
I still wonder though, for scheduling purposes, when my retrieval will be and how I will be feeling leading up to the procedure. I suppose I am preparing myself for a decent level of discomfort in my abdomen from my pleasantly plump ovaries.
I am crossing my fingers that I don't bloat to the point that I look pregnant. That would be annoying. But whatever. If looking 4 months pregnant will bring us closer to a take home baby, I will gladly endure the strange looks and water cooler gossip about me. I don't care what anyone thinks anyway.
I guess I just want to be as comfortable and stress free as possible.
Things are great today.
