Syringe - O - Rama

My IVF nurse and I went through all my leftover medications while deciding what prescriptions to call in. I had lupron, but no syringes. I had Repronex, but no syringes. I left her office with this...


...a big ass bag of syringes. I hope hope hope I don't end up using all of these.


The score so far: Injections 86, Eggs Retrieved 0.


Tomorrow is my first lupron injection. The *real* start of this cycle.


Third time's a charm?


OR


Three strikes you're out?


Soon we will know.

fingers crossed that it's third times a charm! You're due for things to go right this time, girl - plus you got the couches, so "if you get them, babies will come," right?

I think the couches are going to clinch it for you - all the way this time! I am soooo not looking forward to all the shots for my next cycle, but that is the way we must go - thinking of you, good luck!

See now, you and I should get together because I ALWAYS have a shit ton of needles left over, and no meds! This is on account of my body being a greedy bitch, and requiring the maximum amount of meds.

I don't even know how to score mine... lol! 2 cancelled ivf's, 2 pregnancy/miscarriage ivf's, an FET...

I wish you much luck with your big ass bag o needles. I hope the work pays off.

Oh my...good luck! I remember those days like they were yesterday.

By the way, my husband's cousin and I saw the same RE here in Kansas City. (We have male factor infertility where as they had an egg production/retrieval problem.) Just wanted to share that after 2 aborted cycles, her RE decided they needed to skip the BCPs. Apparently, that part of the protocol seemed to almost put her into menopause (even though age-wise she was far from it; although I don't know about her FSH level).

Third time was the charm, literally and figuratively! She produced 3 eggs, all 3 fertilized, all 3 implanted, and today we have the "triple Deckers" in our extended family.

Incredibly, we have 6 in vitro grandchildren from the same side of the family. One cousin has the triplets, another cousin has 2 (from 2 individual attempts) and last, but certainly not least, we have our dear daughter, Mary Catherine. Medical incredible, huh?!!!

For my IUI's I was always left with syringes, not medicine. I have a bag full, all different sizes.

The third time can definitely be the charm. I am crossing my fingers!
