June 7 - Day 28 of IVF

Good news! We just got back from Jennie's appointment. The ultrasonographer discovered 10+ follicles per ovary, her estradiol level shows that she is adequately suppressed, and her cervix is easily visualized. All is well...

Her Lupron dosage decreases from 10 to 5 units immediately and she will begin daily Bravelle (FSH) injections twice per day this weekend. Jennie's 10 lb weight-lifting restriction begins Saturday. Oh well, I guess she better get busy cleaning the house... :) just kidding. After Saturday morning, I will be slave boy DaveyWavey (i.e., vacuuming, dusting, washing dishes, etc).

On a lighter note, I nearly fainted a couple of times today. It was not blood sugar related at all, but rather onset by viewing pictures and hearing the doctor speak of cervical / vaginal / uterine activity. I could never be a gynecologist -- I would continually faint on the patients while looking at their "innards"! hehehe

LINK OF THE DAY: Vasovagal Syncope (Fainting at the Doctor's Office)

Until tomorrow,
Dave T.
