Baseline is done!
I got my ultrasound done first. My nurse asked me my name, rank & serial # (well not really, but you know the drill if you're infertile) before quipping "Just wanted to make sure you are who you say you are. Don't want some weirdo just coming in off the street for a transvaginal to get their rocks off." LMAO. I assured her it was really me but was wondering if she was really an RN or just some clerk from the deli @ Stop&Shop; after all, they wear white coats too. She giggled a bit. It's nice to have some levity when dealing with this infertility b.s.
As they say, "All quiet on the Western front" (in my ute & ovaries @ least). So the plan is as follows:
Tomorrow morning I lower my Lupron dose to 5. Then tomorrow night, I start with 200 of Follistim & keep doing the morning Lupron/night Follistim thing until my next bloodwork & ultrasound on the 24th. I asked my nurse what she thought the likelyhood of my ER being the same morning as Vid's citizenship ceremony & she said although there's a chance, it's doubtful based on my history of response to stims; she's thinking more likely it'd be a couple days later. We could freeze a sample I suppose, but I'd rather not have to. I mean, we just forked over $2500 to them this morning, not to mention the $500 for meds on top of that. I knew I should've gambled way more in Vegas...
