Stims, Day #1

I started my Follistim this morning-225 IU, twice daily(am and pm).

I forgot how much the medication stings-yeouch. For future reference I hereby christen the meds Folli-STING. I also stuck myself this morning in the finger right before I dialed the dose-I usually don't take the cap off of the needle until just before I inject it......why I did that, I have no idea..........anyway, I then had to take the needle off and put a new one on and start again. But, I did it. Now, only three more days to go until ultrasound number 1, and we'll see what's cooking in there.

I'm exhausted today. The rain and yuckiness of the Nor'Easter outside doesn't help-I just want to crawl into bed and read a good book, especially now that the heat is FIXED (happy dance inserted here). I feel like I can't wrap my brain around things today, and I'm not sure if it's the meds or the weather-probably a combo of both, right? Today is a blech day. Even the kids at school seem to be blah, which is unusual for them.

I need to think about what I'm going to be for Halloween this year. We have a parade every year during school, and last year I dressed up as a cat (that way I could get away with wearing a black tracksuit to school-heh) with ears on a headband and a tail, and made up my face with makeup. So, I've gotta think of a costume that I can wear a tracksuit or something, because by Monday the old ovarian bloat will start to kick in. I have a tan tracksuit, so maybe I can be a lion? I dunno-I'm not usually good at these things. Any suggestions that don't require going to the costume store?

Blech-it's that kind of day. Just blech

It is a totally blech day! Be careful out there. Go for the Lion sounds cute.

Wishing you lots of luck this cycle. You will be in my thoughts and prayers.

hmmm, Hermonie? McGonogal?

Quincy will be McGonogal's familiar, and I'll be McGonogal - hat and cape, and gryffindor pin.
