The Panic Post

See above picture? Well, that's me. I was supposed to have an appointment tonight with my RE and she was supposed to go over phase 2 of this IVF injection process and I was hoping to have a more positive post about all that she went over. Tomorrow morning I'm to start the Gonal F/Menopur mixture and tonight's appointment was gonna show me what went where and which needle to use. Well that's not gonna happen. RE not exactly back from her vacation while she pushed back my appointment to tomorrow I'm still supposed to proceed as planned tomorrow morning with the mixture. "Say WHAT?" Yep, proceed. She gave me phone instructions on what to do but still I'm a tad nervous. Honestly, I think I'll be just fine. I would have rather had the stuff in front of me as she told me what to do so I could be aware of which one is the pink needle and which one is the red one or the best thing which vial is which. Apparently, there are 4 different powered vials I have to mix in total. It sounded like a lab experiment. I don't know nothing about mixing chemicals. My next update will either be I did just fine and all is well or some hazy post about me blowing up my house and accidently stabbing myself in the hand in the process.


  1. YouTube! I had to do that with mixing some of my meds. Good luck!

    1. I have absolutely no idea where I'd be without you. The very first video that came up with under the search terms of mixing gonal f and menopur was very helpful and there were tons more. AWESOME!!!

  2. Sorry that I'm so far behind on your news :( Hope your injections went OK.. and that you're appt went smoothly. Thinking of you and cheering you on xoxo

  3. I'm just catching up! Good luck, I am sure you will do just fine. I will await your updated post later today.
