Yesterday my baseline appointment went really well.  My dr. did a physical of sorts and then an ultrasound and a estrogen blood test.  Everything looked ready to go on the u/s with plenty of antral follicles.  My estrogen was supposed to be between 20-55 and mine was 27.  So, the Lupron has done it's job. I'll go back on Tuesday and we'll be looking for some of the follicles to hopefully begin maturing and my estrogen to be on the rise.  So, so far so good.  We made up the little Lupron/Menopur/Gonal-f cocktail and injected it.  Apparently all syringes have their drawbacks because this one did not want to push in and prolonged the process (and the stinging as the meds went in).  But, I guess we have plenty of time to figure it out.

Last weekend my sister and I really enjoyed the self defense class.  It was a good beginner lesson.  The company that put it on is a little unorganized but they offer several other classes.

My husband made me a surprise appointment (which he told me about to make sure the timing was right) to get a massage at Spa Sydell!  He's so thoughtful.  He wants me to be relaxing while I'm going through this cycle.  That's a tall order with my job right now. 

Well, I hope everyone has a fun, safe weekend!
