Not too much to report.
We had a good Valentine’s Day trip. Hubby “knocked ’em dead” with his performances and we got to take a little hike and saw some bald eagles. He also loved the gift I made him (pictures posted before) of the deck of cards. 🙂
Yesterday I found out how much meds would cost this cycle. I had some leftover Follistim so that helped a little but even with that it was going to come to $2,300. I do have to say it was less than I was preparing myself for, but still pretty high. So I contacted the nurse at the RE’s office and asked if they had any samples or donated meds. For those who don’t know, a lot of women donate their meds back to their RE’s office when they don’t need the extra, so that self-pay patients can use them.
So today I got some great news! The nurse told me they were going to get in some Follistim so I did not have to order any from the pharmacy! That saved me $1,200 right there! It made my day!!!!
We are moving right along and I go in Monday for my annual, then Friday is the Saline Sono. I may even start one of the meds the end of next week or early the week after. Seems like it is moving fast now.
I have not dropped the weight I wanted to before we started this round, but I am not going to get depressed about it. I will just continue to try and I may just drop a few more by the time we get to the egg retrieval.
So these are the meds I will be taking:
Micro Dose Lupron
Follistim (starting at 225 IU)
Menopur (75 IU)
If I start having symptoms of OHSS (Ovarian Hyper Stimulation Syndrome) I will add Cabergoline to help keep that in check.
Thanks for reading!
