I am a very organized person. While some like to joke about my OCD, I prefer to call it organized. Even if things appear a bit scattered, I can find anything because everything has a place and there is a place for everything. Well, I'm trying to keep all of my med schedule, appointments, future possible appointments, etc. in my head. I need to just print it out and have it available everywhere I turn!
10/31 - started BCP
11/5 - started Lupron 10 units (morning) & Dexamethasone(every morning until ER)
11/9 - last BCP
11/10 - switch to Lupron 5 units
11/12 - drop Lupron, add Ganirelix 125mcg (every morning until ER)
11/15 - Baseline u/s, E2 levels taken, MET (mock transfer) - 1/2 day off work
11/16 - First E2 - 4mg injection at night (IM - ouch)
11/19 - Second E2 - 4mg injection at night (IM - ouch)
11/21 - Begin nightly EV2 vaginal suppository - yucky (continue until ER)
11/22 - Begin Gonal-F injections 750 units/night
11/25 - change Gonal-F dosage to 375 units/night, add Menopur (1 vial/night)
11/29 - u/s and E2 levels taken (more time off work I assume)
Depending on what my follie scan and estrogen levels show, we will receive further instructions on the 29th. I'll have many appointments in which I go in for an u/s to see what my ovaries are up to that particular day. Being a teacher adds a new twist to just "going in for an appointment" because I just can't leave for just a bit. Well, I could, but that would leave way too many kids on their own for too long. I'm hoping that my principal and my team will continue to support me through this, and I know they will. They've been along for this ride with me and have been awesome.
Weird that we're looking at a transfer a little over only three weeks away because it seems like it will be for.ev.er!!! The earliest we would go trigger and go in for the ER would be December 1st, but Nurse J thinks it will probably be a few days up to a week after.
Since I'm a person who may possibly tend to hyperfocus heavily on details, I'm trying to just go day to day. You can see by looking at this schedule that it's hard to do sometimes. Breathe in . . . breathe out . . .
