Feels sick? 18/06/2020

I increased the drug (APO-METFORMIN) doses by one more tablet 2 days ago. Then I have felt bit sick like when my iron level was low. Possibly I just caught a cold or I have been too chillaxing at home? Anyway, I need to increase one more tablet which is 3 tablets a day next week and it is a bit scary… Lazy person will become the laziest human soon. I apologize in advance to my husband.

APO- METFORMIN *3 23/06/2020

Today I increased the dose of the medicine APO- METFORMIN which makes me sick. It seems the sick feeling comes after 1 hour of taking the medicine and it goes for around 5 hours. So when I have the drug for 3 times per day, 15 hours of the day are sick time (ToT)!!!! Hopefully, my body will get used to it and I’m glad that I don’t have a job at the moment….

UTI 01/07/2020

I have got “urge to urinate after you’ve emptied your bladder” last week.Actually, I am very easy to get UTI so antibacterial medicine has become one of my favorite drugs now, Literally… However, this time it doesn’t work. Did I use the drug too much and made the bacterias storonger? Anyway, I went GP and got a new medicine. According to the Dr., it is safer than normal medicine for my situation. Nevertheless, I prefer not to take any pills that aren’t relevant to IVF. (T_T) The drugs for preparing IVF are already too much as if they are for a granny. Hope the UTI will be gone before the IVF starts!!!

IVF Cycle 1 9/7/2020

DAY 1 I dreamed I had my period and it came true! So I’ve called the clinic to notify of DAY 1. DAY 2 Blood test just started and I’m the type of person who stares at the needle of an injection when the blood is being taken. DAY 3 An injection named GONAL-F has started. My hand was shaking… DAY 4 The little air bubble in the injection scared me a lot…. Later, I found that the information says that the small air bubble is not a big issue. DAY 6 I’ve got use to it. DAY 7 The egg size have been checked and I needed to write the size and amount. Actually I have a lot of eggs then I am not […]

After IVF Cycle 1

DAY 10 The extra pill and injections made me feel like I had a hangover. My colleague told me that I looks sick so I just pretended that I drank too much last night. Anyway I’m worried about if I become a crazy emotional lady because of high estrogen. DAY 11 Actually, having 3L water per day is literally torture. DAY 12 A nurse kept contacting me almost everyday to ask how I feel. I wasn’t sure why she checked so frequently but the nurse said there was a good chance to be sick at the moment. Actually, I didn’t feel well at day 10. However, since my husband bought my super favorite food for a dinner, I’m super fine. DAY 14 My husband and […]
