love, life, and the pursuit of liberation
I had my RE appointment today since it was day 3 of being on the gonal-f/repronex cocktail. Apparently my estrogen levels are rising pretty fast, though technically in the normal range. So my dosage has been cut in half and I’m being put on a frequent monitoring protocol (ie, every 1-2 days).
I’m even MORE thankful that my job is working with me, that I have amazing insurance ($15 a visit and no charge for just bloodwork as opposed to the $60 I was paying before), and that it’s Thanksgiving week, so I only work Monday and Wednesday.
Today at church, the pastor talked about how Divine success and abundance is there when you make room for it. That you have to give up the “stuff” (stress, etc) that’s taking up space first. I decided today that one of the things I’m giving up is pessimism and self-deprecation. So I’m not gonna be worried about OHSS unless Dr. On-it says we’re there.
I am going to ask for an ultrasound tomorrow though because my belly is pretty sore and I’ve done tons of injections before. I actually had to take off my waistbeads for the first time in almost 4 years and no more low rise jeans for me b/c it caused too much pressure on my pin-cushion stomach.
And so it is.
