Day 9 of IVF #3 Baseline U/S and Blood Work

Well, today was my baseline u/s and blood work and it went ok. I didn't have any cysts, so that's good, but I am still waiting to start my period. The RE thinks it should be soon based on my u/s. I hope she is right because I don't want any delays. I am scheduled to start stims on Monday.

 I also had to get my blood drawn for E2 (estradiol) levels. My clinic recently switched labs that they used so this was the first time I had ever been to this lab. The lady that drew my blood was terrible. I am pretty sure that she hit a nerve while digging around for my vein. I thought I was going to pass out and I never feel sick getting my blood drawn.

 It probably didn't help that today was my first day of ganirelix and I feel completely lousy. I have had hot flashes all morning and just feel terrible. I just want to go home and go to bed.
