Follie Update

All seems to be well in my ovaries. I still have lots of follies growing (more than ten, but my ovaries like to hide so we aren't sure exactly how many more). They still have me on 150 IU of Follistim and two vials of Menopur. They are sticking with the slow stimulation so that I don't get OHSS (Ovarian Hyper-Stimulation Syndrome). I start the Ganirelix injections tonight. 

Ganirelix is basically the new Lupron but you only take it for 4-5 days so way fewer injections! My RE rarely uses Lupron at all anymore.

I am staying at a hotel near my REs office since the hotel is cheaper than the gas to get from home to the REs office. Its kind of like a mini vacation from my life. I'm laying around watching tv and playing on the internet. When I checked in the girl at the front desk was really excited to check me in. I thought that she must really like her job. Then when I walked into my room, the first thing I saw was a basket with fruit, flowers and a big balloon. My first thought was crap, they put me in the wrong room. I figured the balloon would say congrats or happy birthday. But it said "Thinking of You." The basket was from my lovely sister-in-law! It was the first time I have ever had flowers delivered to me! My hubby has of course given me flowers, but he always gives them to me himself. The basket has tons of tasty snacks great for a hotel stay! Fruits (apples, kiwi, oranges & pears), cheese & crackers, cookies & tea and hot chocolate. The flowers are red-orange potted, gerber daisies.

Thanks honey!!! I'm gonna go eat a kiwi now!
