Womb Update

Monday and Friday, today, I had monitoring appointments.  Monday was blood and ultrasound.  Everything looks good  and I dropped my lupron down to 5 units a night.  Starting a week ago, I had been waking up at 2:45 on the dot, every night with night sweats.  That led to some serious exhaustion.  Once I dropped the dose, I gained back an extra hour of sleep, waking now at 3:30. 

 I also started estrogen supplements, at .05 units, Monday night.  Because my insurance doesn't cover the estrogen patches because it isn't a common fertility drug (so they say) it was either pay $700 out of pocket for them, or pay the $10 co-pay for an injection I take every third night.  I increased my dose to .1 last night and will take another dose at .1 Sunday night.

It's a rather large needle, not the largest though, and I'm sure you can guess where that the badonkadonk.  Thankfully, after about 30 minutes of icing, it's relatively numb and the shot is painless.

 Today, was just blood and I'm waiting to hear from the office about my instructions.   

Overall, I'm feeling fine.  Sometimes hot, often hungry-it's still up for debate on if it's true hunger induced by the hormones or the placebo affect (or my bad habits from my lack of diet for the past few weeks are still hanging around.)  

Happy Weekend
