Hurt So Good

Estrace is one of the IVF drugs used and I started this nifty little drug on day 3 of my cycle. 2mg in the morning and 2mg in the evening. I have a reminder on my phone that goes off at 8AM and 8PM to help me keep on track. I have a feeling as we start to add to the meds schedule, it'll help me remember what to do when. So far, the only side effect I have had is a little nausea. I have read that it can cause increased libido, headaches, dizziness, sleepiness, hyperness and myriad other symptoms. I'm hoping to only get the good ones. :) The past 2 days, I've started feeling sick about 3PM. Nothing terrible, but I did notice it was better when I nibbled on something. Maybe that's where the weight comes from during cycling! :) I had my ultrasound on Thursday and that seemed to go well. The NC is back in the office today so I chatted with her a bit and we're on schedule for an August transfer.

In other news, we're getting the last of the details worked out in our contracts. I'm waiting for IPs' lawyer's "Final Copy" to forward to my lawyer and hopefully, that will be the end of it and we can sign!

very exciting! my agency won't let me start any medication until the contracts are finalized. not that we are even close to that point (they are starting to annoy me) but i'm a little jealous!! :) seems like your journey is just flying by.

Technically, I "shouldn't" be starting meds either, but IM and I have such a good relationship that neither of us really mind. We'll definitely have signed contracts before transfer though!!! HAHA

You'll get there!! Better to have peace of mind before going in, right? :) (I know, it would be hard for me to wait too!!!)
