Ready, Set, GO!

At 4:40 pm I got the call that this cycle is a go! I was instructed to begin Follistim and Menopur last night and Follistim and Lupron this morning. We are to continue this regiment until Thursday, when we go back to Ginormous for our ultrasound and bloodwork to see if we are making any process.

So at 4:45 I raced out of my office to pick up my meds. (I know, I know, why did I wait for the last minute? Honestly, a part of me felt that we'd never get to the stims, so why spend the money.) Well, the pharmacy closes at 5pm and when I arrived at about 4:56, the doors were already closed. I wasn't sure what to do. Call Supernurse and tell her we'd have to start a day late? Ask if she'd call the prescription in to another pharmacy? Frankly, at 5pm I wasn't sure that I'd be able to catch her either.

I did the one thing that I could think of, I tried the door and it opened! Two of the ladies at the pharmacy clearly weren't pleased to see me and didn't even acknowledge my presence. (This is a very small pharmacy located in the same building as Ginormous and the clock on their wall said 5:03 pm.) Fortunately, a third lady, who was very nice, greeted me, took my name and located my big bag o’ drugs on the shelf. She also retrieved my Follistim from the refrigerator and offered me an ice pack to keep the Follistim cool. Within minutes, she rang me up and I was in my car.

I did my shots last night and this morning (accidentally stabbing myself in the finger with the used Follistim needle, while attempting to discard it).

And yes, stumbling out of the blocks, we are on our way.

Chee Chee...Yeah! I am very excited for you guys! I hope the drugs/shots will have minimal side effects. And I will be checking on you regulary to find out your progress. Hoping for some good news the next couple of weeks.

Also, I am glad the pharmacy worked out and you didn't need to call supernurse!

Oh jeez, and I've got all of this Menopur in my basement - I think it's still good, is it too late to offer it? It may be too late to be good, but if it's not and you want some, it's your's.

I'm so glad you found the nice lady to give you your drugs. It really irks me when places close earlier than they supposed to - it's actually the reason we got Neflix instead of going to the Blockbuster store!

Sending good egg-growing thoughts your way!

One step forward is all it takes to begin...even if you do trip while doing it.
