Happy Thanksgiving!

First of all I just want to wish all of my readers a Happy Thanksgiving. I hope all of you have a wonderful day filled with family, friends, and a ton of good food. Since my Endocrinologist started me on the Glucophage and told me that I needed to overhaul my diet, I haven't had any carbs (with the exception of tonight) so I am looking very forward to a small helping each of mashed potatoes and stuffing. My goal is to stuff myself with vegetables so I am not tempted to have dessert. Normally I would give in but my 5th wedding anniversary is on Friday and I know that I am going to give in a bit on that day too (since we are going out for a very nice dinner) so I really need to be careful and make smart decisions as I don't want to pay for it later on with whacked out blood sugars!

Anyway...on a different note, I got the green light to start stims tonight. Dr. Braverman had me take 20 units of Lupron starting on CD3 for three days because my FSH and LH were so low. I went in this morning to recheck everything and very happily I am still at baseline and my FSH went from 2.2 to 5.3 and my LH went from 0.67 to 4.73 so now my levels are absolutely perfect and I should stim well. Next week is going to be a bit hectic as I have to go to my clinic everyday. Monday, Wednesday, and Friday I have to go in for blood work and ultrasounds and on Tuesday and Thursday I need to have my uterine washes using the Neupogen...that should be a blast! Also, on Tuesday I have an appointment with the oncologist to go over the results of the cancer screening. They called earlier this week to let me know that the results were back and they wanted to setup a time to go over them. Since this was a holiday week their next available appointment wasn't until Tuesday. I am hoping for good news as I don't think I could handle yet another thing going wrong...I have had enough of that over the past 3 weeks, I am done!
