Fucking ovaries! Who needs them!

Went in for a suppression check this morning. We (RE and I) decided that with my history of no to low response, I might be okay with just 10 days of 1upron so that we could schedule my transfer around the (U.S.) holiday weekend. Well, I probably should have known I wasn’t suppressed since I haven’t bled yet. Although, in my defense, I’ve never done suppression before. Turns out it was good I went in this morning, as I am to DOUBLE my 1upron dose. Yikes! Now I’m glad I didn’t go home from work with that migraine on Tuesday. I’m anticipating a worse one (or more).

Thanks for the comments on the last couple of posts. About the OB appointment. I called the recommended dr’s office. I was told I must be pregnant to even attempt to make an appointment, and then the dr will consider whether or not to accept me as a patient. I also called the hematologist’s office. (They are so nice there.) Got the name of an OB he likes. Unfortunately, that dr is not on my insurance plan. Out of network for pregnancy and delivery would just be insane. I think I would like to interview 2 or 3 OBs before deciding, like I did with REs. I will continue to ask around, and even though the idea freaks me out a bit, I may look at local IVF pregnancy message boards.

To the commenter on my last post who thought I was going to name a daughter “Nyah.” That made me smile this morning. “Nyah, nyah” is an American (I think) expression that the Urban Dictionary defines as “the verbal equivalent of sticking out your tongue” or saying, “So there!” It’s pronounced with a consonant “y”, not a long “i” “y”. (If anyone else can explain that better, please do.) Not going to reveal baby names here until said baby has arrived in the world.

Kristin you are such a sweetie! I have a feeling we will be talking in a few weeks. I hope I’ll be calling you for mommy advice by the end of the year.

Still keeping the giveaway deadline as midnight on February 3rd. Just a few more days until Mushy picks a winner. (Yes, I’ll take pictures.)

Ugh...I can't believe you had to double your lupron dosage. Try a combo of motrin and tylenol to fight the headache. They work better in tandem because they work to kill the pain in different ways.

uggghh is right. lupron sucks. I hope it does the trick and suppresses your ovaries properly. The headaches were the worst part.

Sorry about the double Lupron...that sucks! Stay away migraines! Just remember the prize at the end will be so worth it (which I know you know)! :)

Ick, hated lupron. I hope you don't the headaches don't get worse.

Another Dreamer said...

Sorry you have to up it. Ungh. Hopefully it won't make the headaches much worse.

Hello, I don't know how i found your blog but anywayyy, nice to meet you.

I wanted to say, drink lots of water to avoid those headaches. My doctor said 2.5 - 3 litres (I don't know what that is in your measurements, but 2L is 6 - 8 glasses) and so I did and had no problems.

The one day I was very busy with out of the office meetings, didn't have all my water and yes, had the headaches!

Oh how our ovaries do not cooperate when we need them to! I swear they have minds of their own! Hopefully this upped dose of lupron will do the trick, but I hope it doesn't come with a huge migraine attached. ((HUGS))
