We are on Stim Day #2 at the Patterson household. It's going pretty well so far. I started the micro Lupron on Tuesday morning (20 units, morning and evening), and started the stims (4 Bravelle in the AM and 4 Menopur in the PM) yesterday. That makes four shots per day - 2 in the morning and 2 in the evening, along with taking 5 pills each day - bcp, baby aspirin, and DHEA 3x's. I never thought I would be able to give myself a shot and look at me now! :-) It will all be worth it when we are holding our baby in our arms! Here's the infamous meds picture:
But, once again, I have to appreciate and be so grateful for the insurance we have! The meds were around $8,000 of which we only paid $55! It is so amazing especially since I know there are so many people who have no or very little infertility coverage.
