I had my first monitoring appt today. I have 4 follicles on my right and 4 on my left, all under 10 mm. This is very, very typical for me as I'm a slow starter. I go back Thursday.
As this is my 5th time going through this, I'm noticing pity looks from the staff at my clinic. I know they mean well, but I feel like I depress them. The doctor (not my doc, but the one who was there today) looked at me today and said "I really hope this one works out for you" and he looked at me like he was going to cry. I appreciated his sentiment and even the sadness he shared with me, but I felt very pathetic. I feel like a piece of furniture in that office. Like if they inventoried their office i would be on the list ("2 reception desks, 18 chairs, 3 sonogram machines, Tracey"). I'm a permanent fixture there.
We've only been doing shots since Saturday and my belly is SO BRUISED already! WTF? And they've been hurting so bad too. My wimpy ass even uses ice before so i do not get it at all.
I'm trying to do yoga every single day to "open my energy channels". We'll see what that does. I'm really losing hope that there are any tricks out there. But I'll still try them all!
OK, time for shots. More updates on Thursday...
