IVF #2 Update
Today is day 6 of stims. After baseline scan and blood work on Saturday the Nurse called and told me to start Gonal-f 225 units that night. I had to go in for blood work Monday and they increased Gonal-f from 225 to 300. Last IVF they had to bump up my dose as well because I wasn’t responding as quickly as they liked. Yesterday morning I had first ultrasound and more blood work. My left ovary had no measurable follicles (all under 10mm) and my right one had one 10.3mm and the rest were under 10. I think I am 1-2 days ahead of my last IVF so I think I will be on stims for 10-11 days. So far I don’t feel too horrible. I have been extremely tired with headaches and bloated but it will all be worth it in the end. I added Menopur last night to the Gonal-f and I will go in tomorrow for more blood work and another ultrasound. I figure largest follie will be at around 13.
Yesterday was yoga day. Every Wednesday I try to meet my mom and sister for a yoga class. It is a good way to see each other and get a good workout in at the same time. It must be that the summer is almost over because the class and gym was packed! Everyone was a sweaty mess after. Since I don’t like to spend my lunch at my desk I decided to try this 45 minute Treadmill Trimmer workout that I had clipped out from Fitness Magazine awhile back. It didn’t seem that difficult but my trusty heart rate monitor said I burned a good 250 calories during it!
