Anyways, last night I had a falling out with my follistim pen. Meaning, it was MIA from the box it was delivered from. I began freaking out, because I did not know how I was going to inject myself with Follistim! This medication is pretty much what feeds your ovarian follicles, so it's pretty important not to miss a dose. Luckily, I remembered that my sister-in-law was currently undergoing fertility treatments for herself and was using the follistim pen.
I am pretty secretive about egg donation (hence, the name of this blog), so I was extremely nervous about having to break the news to her for the first time. I didn't know how she was going to react, especially when she is having such a difficult time having her own babies. All worked out well, thanks to her sharing her pen. However, I did NOT like having to spill the beans about my egg donation secrets.
I called the on-call nurse at the clinic last night to tell them they needed to send me a new Follistim pen ASAP. They said would send me one immediately. It never arrived today, so I had to call my sister-in-law to loan her follistim pen again to me.
More on adventures of egg donation tomorrow!
