Ready for Retrieval

19 Apr

So ladies…finally my 40 follicles are ready to be harvested. I have about 10-15 fully grown follicles and the rest are smaller ones that are just basically taking up space and killing me in the process. I woke up this morning with such bad pain from my swollen ovaries I couldn’t move, walk properly, use the restroom or anything. Also, stomach cramps don’t help either. Nerves? Medication? My body has gone into shock? Who knows! My nurse called me today two hours after my ultrasound, which I must say was much earlier than they usually do…and told me that instead of just a lupron trigger they want me to do a dual trigger of lupron and HCG. What to do? I don’t have HCG, just lupron so I had to get in the car with the hubby and drive all the way back to Maryland during rush hour times to buy it incase I will need it. Needless to say as we were getting off our exit to my parents house they called to tell me that I will only be taking lupron by itself. My estrogen was 5,500. OHSS? Hello, welcome to my lovely ovaries.
I am honestly exhausted. Now, I will be doing the transfer the day the hubs leaves (at least hell be there). But this medication wears you out. After 30+ injections…I wouldn’t like to see another needle in my life again! Tired…exhausted…in pain…tired, tired, tired is basically how I feel. Ready for Sunday…hopefully Lupron does the trick! 😊

    I absolutely hate ultra sounds. It cost lots of money & the doctors tell you the same things over again after calling them a ton of times just for the results! I’ve always had stomach problems. When I hit the age 22 however it got so bad that it killed me to do anything. Then about 7months ago I came across Katie Humphrey & her 90 days of freedom from pcos on YouTube. (Which is still available to watch) and they definitely changed my life. I still have a long ways to go but one thing is for sure, I haven’t had stomach pains or cyst on my ovaries in 6 months! That’s when I started taking insulite labs. (I tell about it on my blog & she does to on her videos) if you want to stop being in pain & take charge of pcos, I’d definitely watch at least day one & see what you think. Good luck & hang in there! There is a light at the end of the tunnel πŸ™‚
