Levels look good

One hurdle down, a few thousand more to go. I got a call from the clinic that my lab work from this morning looks perfect. Apparently the Lupron and the patches are working. I go in for an US a week from Wednesday to visually check. If it's great then we are set for two weeks from today! I am getting a little nervous about those pesky progestrone shots again (have to do them twice a day now!) but thankfully we know to switch out the needles ROFL
How is everyone else doing?

Yahoo That is great news! Sorry about the progesterone shots, I hear they are a pain Sad Just be glad you don't have to do the suppositories. When I was in college I worked for a compounding pharmacy and we made the suppositories. Patients were always complaining about them.

Glad to hear things are looking so good. 2 weeks will be here before you know it!

I actually had to do the suppositories at our old clinic. The shots aren't a walk in the park but at least it's over quickly. I'll take the shots any day. The worse part is trying to find someone to give them to me when DH is out of town.

Good news! Hope the time flies until two weeks is here! I think the suppositories are on my medication list....they are yucky. I wonder why some doctors use those and some use injections?

pg mentioned

think some docs choose injections because of the different absorption, they know that you are getting that specific dose. I think they work the same and docs probably know that but if they've been using injections forever they are hesitant to switch over. When I was pregnant I had the option to switch over to suppositories at 7wks. I chose to keep with injections because they were working. "If it ain't broke, why fix it."
