Just for you, Megan!


I do keep my 'stirup socks' in this drawer too, so those are just a few options laying off to the side. On the top end is a big sharps container, then the ever lovely suppositories, foll.istim pen, men.opur, all of the IVF associated pills, the trigger shot, lu.pron, vitamins, and at the lower end are about a million syringes, needles, alcohol swabs, gauze pads... and maybe a pregnancy test or two. But, in my defense the HPTS are left over from the one I had to take before pro.vera in September.

So there you have it... a drawer full of drugs- try not to let it freak you out too much!

I was instructed to keep my menopur in the fridge... not you?

When I talked with my pharmacist yesterday he said that the only medication in my protocol that needed to be refrigerated was foll.istim. After reading your comment I quickly googled it, and it looks like it can be stored either way. I think the biggest thing with menopur is the whole using it within 15 minutes of mixing thing. Which leaves little room for last minute freak outs :)

That is one expensive looking drawer!! Hehe, I also love the socks in the background!

Megan said...

Day-um. Okay, yeah I am in intimidated. I'm going to be doing all my own shots for the first 75% of stimming. How hard is it to mix the menopur?

That looks intense :/

When I went in for my last RE appointment I wore my favorite socks (Christmas ones) Red with green and gold polka dots. When the nurse commented on them I laughed and thought of you lol. Please don’t think Im weird for thinking of you well my legs were in stir ups lol (I know awkward)!

Megan- the mixing thing isn't too hard. You'll probably have a class where you'll learn how to do it all?

Jessica- I always have the weirdest thoughts and think of the most random people while I'm half naked and have my feet int he stirups.... its ok, I don't think your weird!

That is one drawer full of craziness...It really looks intimidating, but it's so organized and lovely at the same time.

Stephanie said...

That looks overwhelming! Gotta have socks though. :)

TurtleMama said...

Wow - you are so organized! Let's get this show on the road! Good luck with your cycle.

LC said...

Ahhhh! My cupboard looks very similar...just leftovers from my last cycle. I haven't had it in me yet to clean it out. :(

Cute socks! I need to get me some of those to spice things up a bit.

I thought about your socks when I had my first date with the wand this week. I think I'll wear some cute ones Tuesday for my 2nd date with the wand. I just took my 2nd shot of Menopur a few minutes before reading this post. We're doing our first super ovulation cycle and praying it works.

I wasn't told to store my Menopur in the fridge. I only need to keep the Ovidral in the fridge. I was worried it would be hard to mix, but actually is pretty easy and the instructions the pharmacy gave us were easy to follow, as well as the video online. We didn't do the class since it's two hours away! Good luck!

So organized.
I wanted somewhere good to put my box o' hell but I just threw them in a cardboard box and set them in our bedroom.

Love the socks. :)
