Cycle Day 6, My Ovaries are Talking!


Just got the results of my first blood work back and my estradiol levels are at 200!  That is great so my injections will remain at the same dose for this evening.  I was so worried because the last time my ovaries were not doing anything at the beginning and it ended up taking me 16 days of injections and my levels never really got where they needed to be.  Tomorrow is my first ultrasound so I am very excited for that, can’t wait to see how many little follicles I have going, praying for a good amount!

The injections this time have left something to be desired.  But who would think that sticking needles in your stomach would be a fun experience?!  The first time hurt pretty bad.  I have done injections before so I am guessing it was the Menopur that really burned which is what I’ve heard from others as well.  Each one has hurt less so that is a good sign.  Unfortunately I am still feeling very tired and have bad headaches.  My favorite symptom though?  Crying at the drop of a hat!  It always cracks me up that the silliest things can make me cry, at least it’s not the opposite right?  At least I’m not angry and aggressive for no reason all the time (which sometimes, I’ll admit, happens when I am taking Prometrium to induce a cycle).  Little twinges in my ovaries are starting to happen too which is a good sign.  Nothing too painful, just short, sharp pains that let me know things are happening, a way of my ovaries talking to me!  I am just really having a good feeling about everything and being so careful so that I can’t look back with any regrets, I will know that I tried everything within my control to make this work.

I hope everyone had a beautiful, relaxing weekend!  I know I did!  Until tomorrow…

About thepcosandinfertilityjourney

For almost two years I have felt so down and alone trying to maintain a normal and happy life since I realized that my husband and I would struggle to create a family. I began to second guess everything in my life, have I done the right things, made the right choices, is it my job, is it where I live, what is it and what can I do to make it better? Then, one night while laying in bed it hit me, and the words just started flowing. I have always loved writing and when I was little always wanted to be an author but never had the inspiration of something to write about; now I do. I am going to share my story, my struggles, my hopes, my fears, my triumphs in the hope that it will help someone else going through the same rollercoaster that I am the way many books, blogs, and chats have helped me cope. I will share with you how I am determined to make sure that one of my life’s dreams are not shot down and the obstacles I go through to get there.
