oh, right, the FET

Yesterday when brushing my teeth before bed, my mental calendar started alarming. My brain is amazing for only reminding me of things when I need to remember them, and it’s also very very reliable. And thus, I rely on it. I pulled up my FET calendar – sure enough, I started Lupron shots last night. 10 units, subcutaneously. Easy as pie, and hopefully I won’t have massive side effects. We’ll see!

Also, if this sounds awfully blasé, it’s because it is. I will summon up some hope and good feelings for this embryo once it makes it through thaw. Before then, and before it has safely been transferred, this is just a check-the-boxes routine I’m doing, with only vague abstract reasons as to why.

    ‘Yay’ for your brain – it sounds amazing!! Mine is like a porous sieve and I always need to have reminders on my phone to remind me of everything. I envy a brain like yours! ; ) I’m crossing my fingers hard for this FET!! Let it be the one.xx

      Thanks Haisla! I will admit to being a bit surprised I nearly forgot about it, but at least I remembered! I will take all crossed fingers I can get! xox

    It’s weird to say, but I get the “blase” part completely. After you’ve spent so much time with doctors and needles and ultrasounds, it starts seeming old hat.

    Good luck on this round!

      Thanks Ostrich. I’m a bit surprised I almost forgot about it completely, but happy I managed that level of detached in the interim between cycles. And yah – one little sub-cutaneous needle? That’s easy peasy now!
