I don't know what to title this as...

Lots today. First, I had my BW this morning. RE says to stay with the 225 of Bravelle and 225 of Menopur. I go back Monday for BW and US. At this rate, I'll be out of Bravelle by Monday and Menopur by Tuesday! Yikes. I plowed throught that free shit!!!

Also, I am using a total of 6 vials of power medicine but only one cc of liquid. By the time I get the powers mixed with the powders, my 1 cc of total liquid is more like .8cc. I asked the nurse about it and she didn't seem concerned. I have been using the q-caps, but tonight I am going to try sucking it up with the needle.

Now, let's discuss this 7:45 AM Saturday morning waiting room. I hope I don't sound too bitchy, but it felt like a sorority party in there! Seriously, I am not exaggerating, but it seemed as though each woman in that room (and there were 8) knew each other and were discussing their Clomid/follicles/weekend. And they all looked like they were dressed for a lunch date, all skinny jeans and boots and cute purses and sweaters. And there I was, hair in a bun, relax-y pants, sports bra, tired, reading a 2009 magazine. Am I not the IVF/IUI type? Am I supposed to get dolled up and bring my latte in during the early morning monitoring appointments? Do these women know each other through the clinic? Are they all neighbors who decided they were going to get knocked up for xmas? What is the protocol? This is not the same RE office I go to in the afternoon. The afternoons are filled with silence and sadness.

On another note, I got AF yesterday, but today is filled with minor irritating cramps and medium flow.

Nice, you are well on your way!
What is up with sorority girls with skinny jeans? Yuck!
Good luck!

Woo hoo can't wait to hear your follie report!! And yeah, uh I never got dressed up for monitoring appointments on the weekend. During the week I'd go before work so I had to be dressed up but on the weekend I'd roll out of bed and go. No sense wasting a perfectly good Saturday by not sleeping in as much as you can just because you have monitoring.

That's weird, I was always scrubbing at the RE. I did wear a dress to my ET though, but it was comfy.
Good luck, can't wait to hear how things progress!

Your doing good...moving along, nice & steady!
I never dress up for my appointments unless I'm on my way to work...this morning was sweats and hair up....I don't get that "group" but I would imagine age might have something to do with it. :|

Oh I'm so excited to hear how all those meds start your follies rolling! That sounds like a terrible sorority party - ugh. Thinking of you!

Hmm, that waiting room does sound strange. Just take it as a good sign that you are feeling your meds and they aren't. If they were, they would not be in skinny jeans!
