Appointment update #2

July 28, 2008

I just got the call from my nurse, Colleen.  She told me that 14 follicles is really good this early in the game, and she also told me that the average number of follies on the first scan is only 8, so YAY for being above-average!  My estrogen raised from 30 (last Thursday) to 148, so that’s really good, too.  When I told Jeff, he said, “well that explains your mood swings!”  Poor guy.

I will stay on the same dosage of all of the meds until Thursday morning at 7:15, when I go back for another ultrasound and blood work.  Holy crap, I’m getting so excited!!!!!!

On a somewhat-related note, I am feeling TONS better today, so that makes me happy.  I still have a constant headache, but at least I’m getting used to it.  =/  But, I don’t feel sick to my stomach anymore, and the twinges in my nether regions have changed to a small annoyance, rather than a debilitating, constant occurance.  I’m looking forward to having a nice, relaxing night with my husband when I get home.

    14- woo-hoo!! Hang in there, hopefully you’ll have more days where you feel better.
    I think that if men’s hormones increased 5x in a matter of days, we’d be in nuclear holocaust.
