SO - the doctor says...

Or more accurately the nurse called me to say:

  • 11 follicles sized 12 mm and 10 mm.
  • Estrogen of about 583 (I wrote it down at work and forgot to bring it home with me)
  • Progesterone of 0.8
  • and we're not doing LH anymore - the Lupron plays hell and it's meaningless.

Today is technically Cycle Day 6, and day 4 or stims.  I looked back, and on this day last time what we had was:

  • 3 follicles - 13, 12, and 11
  • Estrogen of 113
  • Progesterone of 1.3
It seems to me - and our Nurse coordinator - that it's going much better this time.  In any case I'm starting to feel better.

I did have friends over tonight, and had a bit to drink, but I didn't go crazy overboard, and at least my right breast hurts less.  I guess I forgot to tell you - there's something going on with it, I went to the regular doctor this afternoon, and they think it's just inflammation or a clogged duct.  Moist heat, don't get a fever, and hope it gets better this week.  They don't think it's cancer.  Yay!

The plan for tomorrow - 

  1. Try and get some more writing done:  I've completed 6,985 words in the challenge so far (not counting blog posts) or approximately 14%.  So far I'm on track. It's probably not any good, but since the point is a rough draft, and you're not supposed to edit, just get words on paper, I'm doing okay.  I keep trying to get a little bit ahead, but so far it isn't happening.
  2. Go and get massages.  We're both scheduled for 2 hour massages tomorrow, and I can't wait.
  3. Go along with whatever Jakobe's plan is.  I don't know what it is - but he's been conspiring with my best friend, so I'm excited to find out.
