I had my first ultrasound and blood work done on Monday. The ultrasound only showed multiple follicles that were still small and immature. The nurse from Dr. Kopher's office called and said I could skip a few days from coming in and to come on Thursday morning for my second ultrasound and blood work. I wasn't too discouraged because when I started the injections the nurse said don't expect change if any on the first ultrasound. I am excited to see what change Thursday brings. The injections have been going great. In fact I have less side effects then I had with Clomid. I get nauseated about two hours after the injection and sometimes have bad cramping but that's about it. I was instructed not to do any physical activity where I could fall or where my ovaries could be "bouncing" a lot. So I have been just walking on the treadmill instead of my usual elliptical workout. It was also disappointing not to be able to go with Eli and Jordan snowboarding on Sunday :( Oh well this will all be worth it, I just know it!
Funny thing happened today when I was doing my daily injection Jordan was in the room and he said "What exactly is that for anyway?". I explained to him that instead of taking the pills to help me get pregnant I was doing the shots. He then replied and said "Are you injecting sperm?"!!! It was so funny. I couldn't believe he said that!! The things that come out of his mouth amaze me everyday!
I will update on Thursday after the nurse calls with the results. Please continue to pray for good things! Thank you!
Love, Kristen & Eli
