Calendar Change

Yesterday Nicole at PNW sent me a new calendar with a schedule change for those two days I was off track. 

My ultrasound is now moved to the 2nd of May.  But that isn't too bad.  Less than 14 days after the the ultrasound I will be getting my blastocysts transferred to my uterus.  Maybe as soon as 6 days after the ultrasound depending on the uterine lining.  Since I produce enough estrogen on my own, I'm fat and estrogen loves fat plus add in the endometriosis which is another too much estrogen issue being produced by the ovaries, I feel fairly confident that my transfer will be around the 8th of May.

Today I cut the Lupron dosage in half.  If I had known for sure that I could have done so yesterday I would have done so.  I found out in the afternoon that bit of information.  Oh and that I could have applied my patches yesterday too if I had been able to cut my Lupron.  But I take my meds at 0430 hrs.  So when I found out at 1400 hrs it was too late.

One thing I can honestly say I hate about the Alora patches are their size.  My insurance covers the Alora patches and not the postage stamp sized Vivelle dots that my clinic in Seattle wanted me to use.  The Alora patches are each 2 x 3 inches.  Big difference in size there when you consider most postage stamps are 3/4 x 1 1/4 inches in size.  Trying to not think about when I have to apply four of them.  Right now I am wearing just two.

I think I blogged this week about the one pound I gained in bloat but then lost again.  I also, as of today, managed to lose another 2.2 pounds this week.  I'm still afraid to mention my weight on here.  I know we do judge others even though we don't like to think we do.  Suffice it to say that I still have 8 more pounds to go and I'll weigh what I did before the last IVF in January of 2012.  I had lost a lot of weight for that IVF to make achieving pregnancy easier for my body.  Hopefully this time it will help with the donor egg cycle.

    1. I'm really hoping I can lose 7 more pounds before the transfer...but that will be pushing it.

  3. Those patches are HUGE. I've gotten up to 6 patches at the height of the cycle, and I can't imagine finding room for 6 patches of that size on my abdomen.

    1. If I have to put on 6 patches I'm going to have to use my buttocks. LOL
