I took the plunge and instead of brunette (as originally planned!) I ended up a redhead! What the hell, it's nice to try something different and it'll fade over time. And I got the chop too! So I have a new look for the Spring and my upcoming pregnancy. Because this IS going to work. I am going to get pregnant and have a happy and healthy pregnancy and a healthy baby. I am!
I must confess though that I am starting to get a wee bit nervous! This time around I am going to be on only 75iu of puregon. Teeny tiny dosage compared to most people but in my case I got 18 eggs on 100iu and a nice dose of OHSS between collection and transfer. Not something I would like to repeat as I was miserable for a good five days. Really miserable. Think waking up in the middle of the night in tears from pain and vomiting type miserable (and I am guilty of not informing the clinic of how I was feeling and stubbornly going ahead with transfer anyway). I know I shouldn't be nervous because clearly I need a lower dose but I can't help but feel my body may not respond as well this time around as that time I had been doing acu for a good 12 months prior and this time I only started going again about 5 weeks ago. I just hope it doesn't influence things too much. And that my eggs decide to behave and grow at a normal rate rather than an inflated rate. Eek!
