I just gave myself my VERY LAST Lu.pron shot for this transfer's protocol. Hopefully this will be my last one, at least for a couple of years. Meaning hopefully this May transfer will be successful and I will not have to do any more of these shots until we potentially come back for a sibling in a couple of years.
I have to admit I will miss doing these shots. They are my "favorite" shots as they are the simplest, easiest and quickest shots, with the smallest needles. And I will miss telling Babe, "I need to go shoot myself now!".
What I won't miss are the headaches, hot flashes and crazy dreams I get from them. At least I think the dreams are from the shots. I guess I did not blog about the dreams. Let's just say that they are super wacky but unfortunately I forget most of them after I wake up. I even had a scary nightmare. As in "The Exorcist" and I'm-so-scared-I'm-afraid-to-to-back-to-sleep scary. Hopefully these wacky dreams will end now.
Today I also increased my Es.trace (estrogen) pills to 3 times a day. This will continue for another 8 days until my ultrasound and lab appointment that will determine if my lining is thick enough for transfer. If that's a go (praying it will!), then our transfer will be as scheduled on May 16th. PIO (progesterone in oil) shots will start after that. And after that, off to Knoxville!
12 days to transfer.
10 days till we hop on the plane to Knoxville.
