Completely out of Real Estate

I'm black and blue all across my tummy and it's really starting to get challenging in finding a spot to poke. The Follistim and Lupron are still pretty minor pokes and after 24 hours seem to be healed up... but the damn Repronex takes a solid 3 days to heal up and the huge splotch to go away and that gives enough space for about 2 on left and 2 on right. Pinching is sore!

Got my blood work back from yesterday and my estrogen levels are doing really well. My first was 38, then 188 and then yesterday she said she'd look for something around 380... it was 389. Go me! Trying to keep it in my head that I'm on my way and my eye on the end result. Thanks for all the prayers and "I'm here for you" emails. It really makes a difference.

PS: When I picked up my final bags of meds yesterday I must have looked like "I can't keep doing this..." as the pharmacist looked me straight in the eye and said "remember, not all women get to keep going." Precious words.


  1. Sounds like everything is going well!

  2. Congrats on the fantastic estrogen levels. Isn't it a nice feeling when your body actually does something it's supposed to?!?! Hang in there with the shots!

  3. Sorry for the bruising and painful pinching. Hope it starts healing a bit faster for you, and yay for the E2 levels =)
