Well, today is day five of injections (AKA stims). I had bloodwork done yesterday morning and my estrogen level was 463! Holy cow! Just to give you an idea, a woman aged 25-30 has a normal estrogen level of around 110-150 and a menopausal woman has an estrogen level of about 20-50!
Thank God though, I'm actually doing ok. My moods are pretty normal and I feel for the most part ok. The side effects I'm feeling now are extreme bloating (feels so heavy and like when you have a gas bubble down there...ouch), slight cramping, and tiredness. Of course for 3 days straight I had a headache and yesterday and today I didnt! Thank you Jesus! They were so intense....oh man.
So tomorrow morning I go to the doctor again for more blood work and an ultrasound. (By the way...I am so sick of vaginal ultrasounds...they are so uncomfortable especially when your doctor always brings interns in to learn/watch!!! LOL)
Oh and since T is gone, Ive been giving myself the injections! I'm so proud of myself...at first I couldnt do it. Now I just ice the area to make it numb and then inject the needle. Not to bad although I am super sore from all the pokes. Tonight my mom is coming to spend the night she will be here to help me. Yay :)
