I had to go in today for a blood draw and ultrasound. The blood had to be drawn at Utah Fertility Partners between 7:30am-10:30am. The ultrasound was done in Provo afterwards since Dr. Marrs and his team are still in California.
Only one vial of blood to test all my baseline hormone levels. They called me later that day and said all my levels were perfect.
I think they blew my vein. At least they got me on the first stick.
All the fun tools.
The big screen - so I can see what they are doing during the ultrasound. I have a big cyst on my right side that is always there. They don't want any prominent follicles at this point so they were concerned at first, but I reminded them that I always have that on my right side. They looked over all my old ultrasounds and saw it there too. So everything is all good. I start my stimulation medications tomorrow!
I stopped birth control on Sunday but have continued my nightly Lupron injection. Still going strong. Oh...and my Burger King ice cream on the side haha.. I haven't really noticed any side effects yet - except that my stomach is sore from all the needle sticks.
