Finally, found time to put fingers to keyboard and write about my latest IVF experiences. Actually it is all become a blur. The main thing is that I am doing the Colorado Protocol with an Antagonist Cycle so I have been continually having to keep my mind focused on what I have to do next.
The cycle has started off like any other. Injections from day 2, followed by blood tests and scans on day 6, antagonist injections from day 6 to yesterday, more blood tests and scans and then finally my trigger injection last night. In between all that I have had to take Astrix from day 2 to day 9 and my husband has been taking Doryx from Day 2 to day 9. It is nice to see that he has finally had to take some drugs. I am now all set for egg collection which will happen sometime tomorrow.
Its all been a blur in between moving house, losing my Internet connection and crashing my car into my new neighbours gate!!! Ironically, tThe day I crashed the car I had just finished from picking hubby up from day surgery. He wasn’t allowed to drive due to having anaesthetic whereas I could since I had not been in surgery.
What a way to make an entrance and meet my new neighbours. Actually, I didn’t meet the neighbours as I had to run off to a meeting and had to leave my husband to deal with my mess. Poor thing – he is just recovering from surgery and I leave him to clean up the gate, post and letterbox I hit after my foot slipped of the car brake.
Even worse I found out why the gate was there in the first place after I copped an eyeful of a naked man from the vantage of the open gate and front room of the house. I wonder if this will affect my eggs! OK – most likely not. At the moment, my belly is uncomfortable and swollen from my active ovaries. At the last scan they found 17 follicles on the right ovary and 9 on the left. I am sure they won’t all have eggs in them but I could be facing a double digit collection again. Oh for a day a rest.
