So good! If the side effects do not kill me first. Apparently I respond well to the follistim. Better than my RE expected. So that is good. I have to go back Monday for another scan.
Going back for these scans is driving my workplace slightly batty. For those who do not understand how the OR works, I have to be at work at 6:45 AM, on a normal day. On days I am doing more technical cases, I have to there around 6:15 AM. Doctor's offices do not open until 8:30 AM. On Monday, I have a robot case. So, I have to go in and get the case started and then be relieved out of the room for my appointment. Fortunately, I think there are enough people in the robot room that I should be able to make the appointment, provided they get the robot docked at a reasonable time. The case could be long. It is posted as something and lysis of adhesions. I see the words "lysis of adhesions", and I just know that the case is going to be a long time. And it is a prima donna surgeon, to boot.
The side effects of the follistim are probably going to drive me nuts. I am tired, irritable, and generally washed out. I actually have shared what I am doing with my co-workers, and I think they notice a difference. They are all hoping that this cycle works, and we end up with a BFP. Of course, they tease me to no end about the hot flashes and crabbiness. They tease 'cause they love, but it is really hard to take if you are irritable. I am really trying to be a good sport, though.
I get the weekend without the hubby, so I can sort of get caught up on me stuff at my own speed without having to entertain him. I also get to meet one of my girlfriends this weekend, and spend the day with her. I am really looking forward to that. Hopefully I can sleep in some, and get caught up on rest. Working 40+ hours per week is really draining, in general. But with the follistim, it feels impossible.
