Keep It Comin

The good news continues. My E2 came back today at 5,893 (should be over 300) and my P4 came back at 214. I swear the nurse said P4 just needs to be at least 6, but I must have heard wrong because last Thursday they told me 20, so maybe she said 60. Anyway, they are very happy with my levels so as of Wednesday, I will be officially patch free and down to only one suppository a day. Yippee!! I go back in so they can check levels again on Friday and I'm hoping at that time, they'll take me off the suppositories completely and I can be completely au natural-hormonally speaking (imagine that).

When I heard my E2 level today it started to make sense that I've felt pretty cruddy the last two days. Similar to how I felt during stims both times when my E2 was skyrocketing.

One more week until that first ultrasound. I'm hoping this week goes by quickly. I'm sure it will as my grandma (Hi Grandma!) will be coming to visit for a week on Wednesday. Although the Buns will be just the most recent in a pretty long line of great-grandkids for her, I know she is really excited for us. She reads my blog religiously (how cool is that?) and sends me encouraging emails. On Friday, my bro, SIL and niece (6mos) will be coming to visit and they will be staying with us for the weekend. Can't wait to see how my niece has grown in the last 2 months. My aunt will also be in town Thursday through Saturday, so we have a busy weekend ahead. I'm sure it will fly by!

I was just thinking. You should change the name of your blog from Freezer Buns to Oven Buns.

Your visitors are in for great weather!

That's sounds like a wonderful Beta and E2. Unfortunately, my RE doesnt't check P levels and I only get 2 betas. Have fun with your family this weekend! Can't wait to hear about your ultrasound.

Great numbers!!!

I am confused though - they aren't rechecking my numbers again till my u/s. (Last check was a week ago) - sure would be nice to wean off some of these meds!!! :)

I am so excited for your u/s, I cannot wait to see how many you have in there. I am betting two for sure!

woohoo!!!

Man, I can not wait to stop having to shoot myself up with these PIO injections. Nurse told me I can be taking them up to 12 weeks. Holy crap.

Congrats on your fabulous numbers. I'm happy you get to stop with all the drugs and you can just be making it yourself.

Jeez, you SO have two in there!

How cool is it that your Grandma is so internet savvy?! I can't even get my Dad to turn on a computer.

Goody! And good news on the familial distraction brigade. Time should fly (or at least not plod too much).

Jen said...

Your numbers look fabulous...

As for that P4 thing, I know they want it to be above 6 on the suppositories right away and I think above 20 at like 6 weeks or something. There is some chart, somewhere out there about it.

But to be like a regular, pregnant girl. That's amazing!
