Infertility

Three days of stims down...

...and I am seriously feeling it.  I've read and read on here for weeks and weeks about other ladies' experiences and I didn't really think I would feel anything this soon.  Maybe my ute is just sore for the cramp-tastic weekend it had.  Idk?  But I am seriously already beginning to feel some "fullness".  This probably isn't a good sign of what lies ahead, is it?  Sad

I had a monitoring appointment this morning, but only E2 levels...no ultrasound.  Still waiting on that result.

  • I do my fourth tonight and am kind of concerned I haven't felt anything yet - I want to know if it's working!  First monitoring appointment tomorrow, so hopefully I'll know then.

     

    It might be an uncomfortable couple of weeks for you, but I hope it's a fruitful one!

    I felt nothing until this afternoon. That's after 4 nights of injections. I had a monitoring u/s and b/w yesterday so I know there's a whole bunch going on in there though. I haven't decided if my minor discomfort is in my head, gas or my expanding ovaries.

    Everyone welcome!
  • I am also on day 3 and had my first monitoring appointment. Not only am I feeling full, but I had an idiot draw my blood and dropped it all over me. I lost it and began crying.

    This is my 3rd cycle- my first one gave me lots of eggs (trouble with defrosting the sperm) and I was like this. My second cycle I wasn't crazy emotional and I didn't have many mature eggs. I'm hoping this is a good sign.

    I think my first ultrasound is Saturday. I have another monitoring appt on Thurs.

     

    Hugs
