Operation Jellyman Kelly: Shots, shots and more shots

DISCLAIMER: Any blog posts titled "Operation Jellyman Kelly" will no doubt gross you out. These posts will describe our current treatments for if you have a weak stomach or don't know how you'd have a conversation with me in person after reading this....stop reading now. ; ) 

I'm happy to report Friday's appointment went well!

Dr. T measured 6 "good-looking" follicles and said there were more but only measured the biggest of them.

This was a huge relief as I was very concerned my body wouldn't cooperate with all of these drugs.

The night of the appointment we started our third injection (Menopur) we're up to three injections a night now.

Lupron, Gonal-F and Menopur.

I must admit....3 shots a

Of all the shots, the Menopur actually hurts the most.  Not sure if it's because there's so much of it that needs to be injected....but man it burns going in.

Last night we had our first mess-up with the shots and put too much sodium chloride into the Menopur powder.  It doesn't affect anything except it made MORE liquid to inject which meant twice as much burning/stinging.  =(  Not pleasant.....but we got through it.

Tomorrow I have another appointment to make sure everything looks good and I'll find out if we're a go for Thursday egg retrieval.

Wish me luck some more!  ; )
