I’m not depressed, I’m just “Less than thrilled about the situation”

My husband keeps telling me to not be so “poopy” and depressed about our check-up yesterday. He’s doing the “It Only Takes One!” egg cheer. He’s putting in a good effort and I do appreciate it, though I did need some time to sulk about my crappy egg reserve.

Ultrasound yesterday revealed only one follicle at a 12. There were some minor size ones on the right and nothing happening on the left. Doc said it was pretty much as expected (for him I guess, not us) that I wouldn’t produce a lot of eggs due to a struggle with endometriosis and my age (38).

We were sent back home to continue the Gonal-F at 375 and to start the Cetrotide tonight. So along with the micro-hcg that’s THREE SHOTS. While I am cranky about this, I am glad we have at least gotten this far. One is better than nothing. At least that is what my cheerleader/husband keeps telling me.

Another ultrasound in the morning and then maybe, just maybe, we’ll have a date set for the retrieval. I don’t know how much more of the belly shots I can take. It’s been 11 days. I am running out of non-bruised belly space.  :-/

One thought on “I’m not depressed, I’m just “Less than thrilled about the situation”

  1. Sorry you are not getting the results you hoped for. :/ Your husband is right about only needing one but I know there is little relief in hearing that. Thinking of you and all of the tons of people who have gotten their miracle babies and hope you (and I!!!) can join that list soon!
