Ordered My Meds
I just placed my meds order. It cost a gagging $5,365.19. I will get some coupons for a rebate which will bring the cost down around $5,000.
I was a little nervous about how much to order because the last time I stimmed for a long time. And it will be more difficult for me to arrange to get more meds because I will be away from home. The nurse helped me figure out how much to order. And she said that I can ship to my hotel room, if I need more.
Some of the relatively minor, but trickier things: A) I will need to have a fridge in my hotel room and B) I don't like cutting it close with my meds, given that they might take a few days to come in. C) The drugs are too expensive to order a lot of extra. D) We many not need any of our extra meds again. If we don't get any normal embryos this will be it.
I told the nurse I stimmed for a long time the last time. I asked her if this is likely going to be indicative of this time, given that it's a much different protocol? She said that people usually stim for 12-13 days in her experience.
Here's my cocktail.
Cetrotide - new
Clomid - new
Dexo-something-or-other - new
Another step closer, to "an answer or a baby" as Dr. Schoolie said. We're banking on it.
