And…we are off

So I finally got my period last week…hurray!  Our donor started hers yesterday, so stims start tomorrow.  So far, so good.

I am surviving on the Lucrin and Progynova although I am feeling very weepy these days.  It doesn’t take much to make me cry these days…silly hormones.

So all is good for now, will let you know when ER is planned.


10 weeks

I can’t believe I am 10 weeks today. I am trying not to wish the time away, but I am so looking forward to being a little further along. I want a bump! I also want the first trimester over as I am so hoping I feel a bit better in the second trimester. I don’t feel as nauseous as I did weeks 5-8, but still not so great. I am so tired, like the walking dead….it is really starting to wear on me. I have little headaches coming now, that are threatening to I turn into migraines…but I think this is more because my sleep is so crap at the moment. I am also still off the meat, I am living on toasted cheese and tomato sandwiches for now.

So my FS wants me to come off the Cyclogest and progynova this week. I am so nervous to do this, so I think I will just taper off slowly. I am seeing the nurse tomorrow for my last intralipid, so I will ask her what she thinks. Anyone have any thoughts?

And the waiting begins…

I am exhausted and my head feels like it is going to explode already! The progesterone always gives me horrible headaches. Yesterday it was on the left side of my head, today the right. So I am hoping it is evening out. I am taking it easy at home, just working on a report that is not moving along as quickly as I would like, but hoping tomorrow is more productive. I am on three Cyclogest and three Progynova a day….so I am pleasantly pickled in hormones at the moment.

My uterus is twingey, but I think that is also the progesterone. I bought all my HPTs yesterday, so I am ready to see those beautiful pink lines! I have been trying to meditate, but I keep falling asleep…so I guess that is what my body needs.

Anyways, the waiting continues. Seven more sleeps until I test!
