IVF #1: CD8: stim day 2

Mixed my first syringe of stims last night. I'm on 300 IU bravelle and 150 IU menopur (for now). S sat at the table biting her nails. My hands were shaking. We were nervous! All went well though (I think). So far no side effects, except maybe with the lupron (10 units twice a day). I always feel a little dizzy after, my injection site burns, and I get a bit of heart burn. That's the easiest injection to give though (compared to stims or enoxaparin).

I feel like I've been waiting years to add a pic of my IVF meds to this blog (pic below includes ganarelix, bravelle, menopur, dexamethasone, doxycycline, and femara - only things missing are levothyroxin, lupron, enoxaparin, and vitamins). I can't believe we're finally here. I am so nervous about Thursday's scan and blood work. I hope my ovaries are getting to work in there. Every time I feel my anxiety getting out of control I try to remind myself that it's not my job to predict the future, it's just my job to try and have a good today.


  1. Yay for stims! Me and my wife are just 2 days ahead of you! Good luck!

  2. May the force be with your ovaries :) Good luck x
