I got my period on Saturday after realizing that I had inadvertently skipped my Zoloft for the previous three days. This sent me into an awesome 24 hour depression with a side of dizzy spells. Oops. I hung out with a few friends Saturday afternoon and had a few beers to relax myself (a very rare thing for me) and my period came later. So I’m crediting it to the beer.
I spoke to my RE’s office yesterday and we went over the schedule for the next 6 weeks. I’m going to start ovulation testing 4 days after my period is done. (This seems really early but I’m just going with it). After I get my LH surge, I go in for an ultrasound and the real fun starts. I’ll be doing lovenox injections daily and vaginal suppositories! Oh and I have to have something called an Intralipid Infusion that will set me back $700! Whoo-hoo! I’m also doing acupuncture. Based on this schedule my transfer will probably be in and around July 8th.
You would think that having all of these appointments/medication would be overwhelming. But I actually think I’m calmer having stuff to do and I’m so relieved the six month wait is finally over! Given that I’m in the home stretch, I’m going to heed my doctor’s advice and will eat exclusively paleo until at least my first pregnancy test. I’ve been generally eating this way, but having less leeway is going to be tough. Goodbye my beautiful pizza-oh how I will miss you!
