CD 1

it feels like it has been forever since i posted.

mom has been sick.....i have been so preoccupied and really haven't even had a chance to think about the hormones racing through my body. i think and hope that she is on the road to recovery. i mean, she just has to get better.

the other day i couldn't remember if i had given myself the daily lupron dose. i thought about it for about an hour. did i? maybe i did? i don't think i did..... i finally called the on call nurse..... i felt like such a shitbag. i told her i couldn't remember if i had done the shot or not. she said i wasn't an asshole, but secretly i am sure she was thinking, "what is wrong with this girl?"
we decided i should do the shot, because i really think i didn't do it.

the lupron has not been an issue. last september when i was on lupron i was injecting 5 units (nothing really) and i was emotional, sweaty, and basically an all around mess. right now i am injecting 30 units, and nothing. i feel fine. i am exhausted. but i think that has more to do with worrying about my mom.

acupuncture has been going well. nothing to report.

af showed her head today. finally. she was due on friday. yesterday i spotted once. and then..... nothing. this morning i was just about to call and tell the nurse af was still not here, i decided to check one more time, and there she was! i think we are still on track for a may 20th transfer. will find out for sure on friday.


  1. Don't worry about not remembering a dose, you have a lot going on. It's better to be safe than sorry, so I'm glad the nurse had you take one, just in case.

    So sorry to hear about your mom. I hope she recovers soon..


  2. Sorry to hear about the issues with your mom. Hoping that everything gets better soon.

    And good news about being able to make progress towards your transfer!

  3. Oh Jes,
    I really hope your mom is ok. Keep us posted.
    Sorry you head is not distracted from the cycle because of something positive.
