This week I thought I was tired due to my cycle wrapping up plus I wanted to escape the dull head throbbing I've been dealing with over the last 7 days. But this fatigue is out of this world! I was sitting at work and needed to nod off. I walk down hallways and immediately want to lay down because my whole being is worn out. I don't want to do ANYTHING but sleep.

I'm also feeling low aches in my ovaries so at least I know these shots are doing something. My only concern is I wonder if I've been under-monitored by my doctor. When I went in mid-last week I was told to come back on Monday. That's almost 5 days of not being monitored and I thought monitoring had to occur much more often. I was also told not to take the Ganirelix until instructed. Ok, makes sense. But I don't have too many injections of Bravelle and Menopur left and ain't I supposed to inject with those vials and add Ganirelix? Hell if I know. What if I have to take these shots beyond the amount of vials I have? All these questions, can't stress myself. Even with these concerns I'm feeling surprisingly chill. I have already decided that if this cycle doesn't go my way I'm leaving this RE and go with another that's highly recommended for older women going through IVF. Gonna just roll along and see what Monday brings.


  1. Happy ICLW! Good luck with this cycle and hope that you have success.

  2. Hey SmartOneKym, these shots had me wiped out yesterday... but am doing so now, thanks for asking :-)

    Thank you, Tippy!

  3. I hope you got some answers!! Good Luck with this cycle, I hope that it's a huge 9 month success :)

    Happy ICLW from #86 :D
