The Quest for the Holy Grail

January 31, 2009

Aunt Flo arrived a bit early, so I started BCPs on Monday night. This pretty much describes how I feel on the left. I tried to see if there was a way to take less BCPs, but I’m invested in the date I chose for my FET transfer, so it means taking a crap load more BCPs, as in 30+ days. So far, so good. I think either the side effects haven’t really kicked in, or this is a different type of BCPs than I took at the other clinic, and it’s better for me. My mood is surprisingly good. I had a few freak out moments in making the decision to go ahead now with the BCPs, as in, “OMG, this is really happening and I hope it won’t be like last time” freak out.

Here I am, groveling again. I’m kinda hoping it will be like this scene from Monty Python’s Holy Grail:

Sorry to beg! If any of you gals have some spare meds floating around your closet that you don’t need anymore, I would very much appreciate any donations. Although FET is a lot cheaper (*cough*) than IVF, we are still feeling the squeeze with Magic out of work right now (says as she averts eyes…). I will need the following:

  • Lu.pron, not generic
  • Vi.velle 0.1mg patches
  • P.IO
  • End.ometrin

Please e-mail me at phoebephoenixtalesatgmaildotcom if you can help.

A huge THANK YOU goes out to my two angels who have already helped me out. You know who you are! Wouldn’t it be cool if we had a Sal.vation Army type place that would offer to pick up your left over donated meds from your house and distribute them to those who need them?

    Sorry hun! I tossed all my drugs in my fit of "i will never be pregnant why do I need this crap" plus i didn't take any of those drugs, but, still I had bottles and bottles of est*race…Try emailing L & F and making a plead for drugs!

    I’m glad you aren’t feeling side effects from the BCPs yet. I have yet to take them, but will need to soon enough for our FET…I’m scared. I felt awful on them when I took them 10 years ago…you know, when I was trying NOT to get pregnant…ha,ha,ha.What a great idea about the meds – kind of like an ivf craig’s list or something.

    I’m so glad the BCPs aren’t getting you like last time. I hate those bless-ed little pills. You are going to do great!!I love the IVF med Salvation Army idea. (-; If this cycle bombs for me I will have a bunch of Endometrin and Vivelle left over. I’m hoping to need them, but you are first on my list if I don’t, okay?

    I have some Vivelle Dot patches. I think I’ll have 8 left. Not too much, but if it will help… let me know! 🙂
