Retrieval – 9 days!
Transfer – 14 days!!
The shots began! So far, I feel no side effects. I didn’t expect to this early, but I’m just reporting all of the details. J However, the shots have been a little eventful thus far.
First of all, I had to work 8 hours on Saturday to make-up for some of the days I will miss later this month for retrieval and transfer. The second shipment of meds came while I was at work, and Todd so sweetly set-up what he fondly refers to as “Preggo Central”. These are just all of our supplies. The actual medications are all in the fridge. I love him for setting this up for me, though. It makes this process so much simpler!

Well, this morning was another eventful shot. I brought my Follistim to work because I have decided on doing my shots at 9:45 a.m. and p.m. I went to the conference room in our Purchasing department and asked the female manager if I could use it for a few minutes. Since it doesn’t have a lock on the door, she gave me a “do not disturb” sign to put on it. I quickly entered, gave myself my shot, and was rubbing the cotton ball on my leg when I heard the door open. I quickly said, “Someone’s in here,” and turned to see the department male director entering the room. Luckily, I’m pretty sure my jacket was long enough to cover anything he didn’t want to see, so I quickly finished-up and left the room. As I passed him in the hall, he didn’t speak to me. Maybe this will teach him what “do not disturb” means. J
Anyway, that is all for now. I’m feeling great today. I’ve started drinking V8 and Gatorade each day…doctor’s orders. Other than that, nothing else is new. I’ll be thrilled if I can keep this calm feeling until next Wednesday.
