Injections: Day 8 (Thursday, June 23, 2011)
Physical: Generally, I'm fine, but feeling a little swollen, fragile, and just not 100%. I left work at 4pm because there was no reason to tough it out and jeopardize my health. (Today's Test Results: 13 are big with some behind, estrogen 1850) With the follicle count, it seems like there's a bit of gamesmanship going on. Understandably, the doctor doesn't want my expectations to be built up, so they've stopped telling me as much about the smaller follicles. That's fine. I know there are at least 17 there somewhere! Grow babies grow!!! Emotional: Amazingly, considering the level of my estrogen, I'm still as sane as I ever was. However, I'm probably less fun than normal because all I want to do is chill out at home and watch movies.
Is anyone reading this? Tell me your thoughts in the COMMENTS section below. Have you considered freezing your eggs? It took me about two years of thinking about it, researching, and getting comfortable with spending the money before I was ready. But I have to say, as soon as the doctor's appointment was made, I felt like a weight was lifted, like I could stop grasping straws and trying to make the wrong relationships work.
