We had yet another ultrasound today and the follicles still aren’t growing well. As a result of this Dr. Amols is starting me on Follistim injections. I already gave myself the first dose and the second dose will be tomorrow morning, happy Thanksgiving to me. We will do another ultrasound on Friday to see if the injections have helped. We are not aiming for the IUI being on Sunday or Monday, assuming I react correctly to the injections. I am super grateful that I have a very understanding doctor and that Dr. Amols prescribed me a cream with lidocaine in it to help numb the area where the injection will be. I’m starting out at 100 (I don’t know the units) today and will be doing 75 tomorrow. I’ve been more emotional today already, but I’m not sure if that’s because of my phobia of needles or the meds working really well. I am praying that it is the latter :). As a side note, since we will want to be telling immediate family first I won’t be mentioning any results of the IUI (good or bad) for a few weeks longer after we find out. Work is also about to be absolutely crazy for the next couple of months so posts may be less often than the appointments anyway, lol.
We feel blessed by all of the prayers and support we have been getting and thank everyone for listening to me whine and rant about this whole process. God bless 🙂
