AF showed up on Wednesday and I had an ultrasound/blood work on Friday. The blood work indicated that the lupron had worked and everything was low were it should be. My RE did my ultrasound and was counting follicles on the right side, he got to 18 and said there are more but I am done counting:-) He moved to the right side and got to 15 and said the same thing! He was very impressed with 33+ follicles to start with and said it is a great place to start for sure.
Last night marked the first night of stim! DP is in charge of all of my shots. He is so sweet when he administers them and tries really hard not to hurt me. He has been doing a great job and every time I feel like he does a better job. He seems to really enjoy having the responsibility of the meds, he gets them ready and I just stand there. I love that it allows him to be involved in the process and I love the time we spend together every night. Last night we had to mix the repronex and the lupron. For anyone who hasn't done this you have to use different needles that are really long (scary long!) to mix them. As DP is mixing them and getting them ready for the first time he sticks himself with the needle! He was so funny, he had a few choice words as his finger starts to bleed. I think he understood that the shots really don't feel good now that he has stuck himself. The follism shot went fine, I am doing 150 right now and will continue to do that until I got back on Tuesday for blood work.
I can't believe we are this far along already! Retrieval is scheduled at the moment for Feb 6, which is soon! Hope everyone is doing great!
