Baby Bradley – Our Journey

September 11th: Off to Tulsa for STAT Friday. This is the first appointment back after starting stims (injections). I left around 5:45AM, got to my appointment at 8:45ish, then was back on the road by 9:20, and home in time for lunch! I am extra thankful right now for my new job and the ability to create my own schedule.

I am still taking all kinds of supplements, so I took them on the road with me.

Wow I’m cranky today. I am tired, have a headache, am feeling extra fluffy, and just kind of blah. I need to go back and see if I was feeling this same way last time at this point. Also, another huge bummer tonight, ALL of my shots hurt. Like, legit hurt. I could feel every needle and it was all painful. UGH. I don’t know why. I started another shot today, too – Menopur. It has a little more liquid than the others, so it burns going in, but the needles don’t normally bother me. Here’s to praying that tomorrow will be better!

I got the BEST news on Friday…as soon as my ovaries/body heal from my second retrieval, I can run again!! I may or may not have cried some happy tears when I read this…

All of my medication instructions for the next few days. Isn’t it crazy how dialed in they can get these? I have seen some other girls’ directions and they are different than mine. Each of us has certain medications and amounts to take based on our bodies.

My follicle count on Friday – Left: 10mm, 9mm, 9mm, 9mm, 7mm, 7mm, 5mm, 5mm, 3mm. Right: 10mm, 8mm, 7mm, 7mm, 5mm, 4mm, 4mm, 4mm, 3mm.
