ARE YOU EVEN DOING ICSI IF IT'S NOT ON THE GRAM?

Updated: Mar 27, 2020

Day one of Norethisterone and feeling fine.

So here we go everyone! Day one of meds. Is it a little bit sad that I woke up super early with a Christmas Day sort of feeling? It's finally here! The day we've waited so long for. And I haven't even started injecting yet! I raced down to the kitchen to pop my first pill, downed some water and then stood in the kitchen waiting for something to happen to my body... Like that's it now, yeah? Solved, pregnant in a few hours... ๐Ÿ˜‚ No such luck.

So we've had a busy couple of weeks with our planning meeting, acupunture, medication delivery and a few phone calls to the clinic to check we have everything. But here we are, ready to go.

Today is day 19 of my cycle so day one of Norethisterone which is to stop me having a period. I'm on these for 7 days, twice a day and start injecting Buserelin once a day from Tuesday 18th. We're booked for our baseline scan on Monday 2nd March and go from there onto stims on 4th March.

I'm actually feeling really good about the whole thing. Feeling ready, excited, revved up and like I'm going to kick some major ass! Last night was a different story where I'd spent all of my pent up anxiety 'having a clear out' which consisted of me trying on every pair of my jeans to see if they fit me any more. Lord knows why I did that myself or why anyone would ever do that to themselves! Then I sat down with all of my meds and worked out how to do it all to feel a bit more prepared about what's to come. There were a few tears of frustration for not understanding some of the measurements and being annoyed with myself for not getting it right away but this morning I feel good again.

I do find it incredible that we've got what feels like an entire pharmacy in the house and there is no nurse or doctor here to check we're doing it properly. I mean, there's a lot to take in and you're just left to your own devices. There's a lot of onus on you to just get it right and get on with it so that's what we're doing ๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿป but it takes brain power. I'm lucky to have Tom who is very practical so he's promised to do most of the measuring, prepping so I can just inject and get on with me day. He's the best.

I've also treated myself to a few baggy dresses today as I'm prone to bloat at the best of times and have posts from other IVF warriors about the bloat. So baggy dresses at the ready!

Would be good to hear how others have felt on Norethisterone. I mean I've popped one pill and not feeling any different yet but maybe in a few days. Arthur (our cat) has been rewarding me with loads of attention too - they really have a sixth sense to your emotions, don't they?

Sending lots of strength and positivity to everyone on this stormy Sunday ๐Ÿคž๐Ÿป
