It is cycle day 8.
I still am not sure what is happening in there with my ovaries but I feel like it is something good!
I have done two of my injections so far with one more tomorrow night.
So far the injections haven't been bad at all. There is some stinging when I take the needle out and my belly is bruised up pretty well; but other than that it has just been excitement to be more aggressive!
Since Thursday I have been feeling pretty consistently achy in the ovary area. I have felt this before during my cycle a few months ago when I did actually ovulate. But I only felt it in smaller doses and it was the night before my ultrasound (so around CD 12). So I am feeling it stronger and more consistently. I hope that means good things are happening in there!
I find out Wednesday morning how many follicles I have going on and if I need a day or two more of the Follistim.
I am hoping for 3. For several reasons... 3 is my favorite number. I don't know why, it just is and always has been. And I want 3 because I feel like 3 will significantly raise our chances but won't put us at too high a risk for multiples. Although multiples wouldn't be bad. I know my husband would be really, really happy with that! :)
I haven't really had any side effects this month from the femara or follistim except I've been feeling really, really tired. I want to nap all the time! And there was some slight nausea last night but only after about 4 spinny fast rides at a carnival.
Oh and did I mention that if this cycle works that my due date would be my husband's birthday?!?
How's that for a sign!?!?
I am happy and excited to see what happens!!!
