Well... - Elizabeth Unexplained
Lots of data but no answers
I have not be posting updates on all my monitoring appointments. My initial checks were so very poor that I was worried that I might get cancelled before retrieval. Things have apparently picked up a bit. I had appointments both yesterday and today, and have one again tomorrow. Dr. Grace thinks she will trigger me tomorrow night, so its looking like retrieval on Wednesday, assuming nothing terrible happens before then.

I need to learn to take my own advice. Last night I put the needle in for one of the shots (I am breaking the dose in two, as per my other own advice) too close to an old bruise or something. I bled rather a lot, and of course I worried that all that lovely medication was coming right back out with the blood. It shows you where my head is... blood all over and my first concern was dosage accuracy.

Good luck!

Have you been putting band-aids on the injection sites? I haven't felt like I needed them much, except that they are Dorothy's contribution to the effort. But I do think that they limit medication leakage, even if there's no blood at all. Having one ready and waiting to slap on the site would limit the bleeding some, too.

Even if medication did leak (and probably not much did), I'm sure there won't be a problem with having a lower dose of Menopur one day. I'd be more worried if it had happened on your Ganirelix shot (those dull needles suck, don't they?)

Might not be a bad idea, though my belly would be totally covered in bandaids before too long. Still, it would also be a good way of keeping track of real estate down there.

And yes, I just did this morning's Ganirelix shot, and those needles sure could be sharper.
