long-overdue updates!

Ok, sorry it's taken me so long to update! The previous post about my monitoring appointment last Friday, well that has been half-written for days.

I've had a lot going on! We went out of town for the long weekend. I let my family stress me out, and we came home Monday. That day I was a hormonal basketcase. One minute I was happy, another I was pissed, and another I was emo.

I completely blame the Clomid.

Why not? I can, so I will!

Here is a breakdown of the meds I've taken so far:

Saturday: Clomid 50mg
Sunday: Clomid 50mg + Follistim 75iu
Monday: Clomid 50mg + Follistim 75iu
Tuesday: Clomid 50mg + Follistim 75iu
Wednesday: Clomid 50mg + Follistim 75iu
and I will do another day of Clomid 50mg + Follistim 75iu tomorrow as well.

Friday we are headed back to the big city! I have an appointment Friday morning for bloodwork and an ultrasound, and we will find out more about when exactly egg retrieval will happen. Right now they are estimating Monday or Tuesday.

Buster and I are both extremely excited! I will finally get to see Times Square at night. We are also tentatively planning a Statue of Liberty sightseeing adventure.

So that's that! Below here, I will post some really super exciting bloodwork results, in case anyone is interested in that crap!
