Repronex injectibles

J and I went for the injectible training. The RN, we will call her Miss A. , was patient, kind and quick. It all seems like a blur to me, things literally went in one ear and out the other. Thank God J was there to capture the important stuff.

Not so worried about receiving the shots or mixing the meds, quite blown away at the side effects. The statistics were unreal.... 30% have multiple births and after I was able to quit obsessing about the possibility of dying from OHSS (Ovarian Hyper stimulation syndrome) from the use of Repronex, things got better.

Today - DH and I go to Dr. H and get our "game plan" together. He will ask her again - for the 30 millionth time why we can't do IVF. REALLY LONG STORY...... He seems to forget and for some reason doesn't want to hear my interpretation of the problem - WHATEVER........ He has is good points (and super -swimmers) so I think I will keep him around a bit longer :-).

That's it for now - will update later

Thanks for your comment on my blog. From what I've heard, if you have a good RE, the chance of OHSS is really slim.

Hi Kara-

Thanks for the sweet comment on my blog. I am sad that I have to welcome you to this corner of the blogosphere, but I'm glad we can be here for each other.

I was incredibly worried about OHSS, too, when I did my first cycle, but everything went quite well. (And I am a world-class worrier, trust me!)

At any rate, I wish you the best of luck as your start your first cycle with injectibles. Keep us posted on your progress!
