Day 6 - BAH!!

Yesterday we went in for an update scan and blood draw. It's pretty routine and I'll have at least one or 2 more of those before we go to 'harvest'.

**Side Note** I don't think I've ever said anything about Reproductive Resource Center and Dr. Brabec. RRC is a bunch of idiot robot monkeys. I hate everything about going in there and the more I have to go the angrier I get that they're still in business. Now, I know I don't pay these people to have personalities, or even care about me as a person. However, I do pay them to know what we're going through, figure out the best plan of attack, and not lie to us. The sad thing is that if you complain about the service at a place like this everyone immediately thinks it's because you're bitter because you don't have a baby. If you do have a baby, then you probably forgot how stupid Dr. Brabec's a viscous cycle....oh well.  If we do a round 3 we're not doing in at RRC, that's for sure!

Anyway, back to my story (I feel better now). The scan didn't give us the results we wanted or were hoping for. Last time, at this stage in the process, the technician counted 17 follicles. This time only 14 - even though I'm on  a crap-ton (yes, that is a scientific measurement) more meds. They did say my estrogen levels were about 1/3 higher than last time, so I think that's positive...I don't really know because no one will take the time to tell me what anything means and I'm always talking to someone different.

That's our news for the week and we go back in for another blood draw and scan on Monday morning to determine when we go in for the spring harvest.

Day 3 - Sharin' the Love

I feel pretty good today. I'm exhausted, but I think that's a pretty standard thing these days. My body's doing lots of thinking about baby makin'. My body is also doing all kinds of things that I didn't know it could do at one time, but I'm down to being able to count all of my drugs on two hands (before I had to take off my socks too).

I was looking through my (huge) box of mail order injectable drugs today and realized they keep sending me crap! Every time I call them they send me more than enough of everything. I think I have enough 'sharps' to last a lifetime and a half.

That got me to thinking, maybe I should donate all of my unused needles and alcohol wipes to those less fortunate heroine addicts. I mean, come on, I'm not going to be able to single handedly stop them from shooting up - I might as well do the next best thing and make sure they're using clean needles. The problem is, I don't know how to get my items to them. Do I just leave them in a box on a seedy street corner? "Please Take if Needed" Do I take them to a homeless shelter? Do I get in good with the local meth lab? I mean, and really, I don't just want my sharps to go to just anyone - I want to make sure they're going to a good home, where the family will take care and love them.

...I guess I'll just keep them safe with me for a while until I figure out what to do with them...
