We have been working with our specialist for 6 months to get me to ovulate. Apparently I do not produce any FSH and need extremely high doses of menepure AND Gonolf to ovulate. Well this month we finally had success.
On Tuesday nights ultrasound we had 8 follicles ready so Wednesday night we took the shot. We did the baby dance Tuesday night, then again on Thursday afternoon. The post coitle test on Thursday came back great so Dr. said we were due to ovulate Friday afternoon and to come back on Monday night for another ultrasound to see how many follicles burst. We did the baby dance again on Friday night and Satuday night. Each time I stayed in bed with hips elevated for at least 30 - 60 minutes if not all night.
Friday I could not believe how intense the pain in my ovary area was. It got increasingly worse as the day went on until by 6pm I thought my insides were going to explode and I needed to go to the ER. Hubby talked me into waiting till the morning to do anything about it. Holy cow how that hurt! But sure enough Saturday morning came and the pain was gone, thank goodness!
Today is Sunday and I still feel quite tender in my abdomen but nothing as bad as Friday. I am going in sane with anticipation for tomorrows ultrasound to see just what happened, but I know that we won’t know of any success for a couple of weeks. I am trying to keep my head on straight by reminding myself that we only had a 10% chance of success but it isn’t working too well.
Well, thanks for letting spill. What do ya’ll do to stay grounded?
