Thank you for all my lovely birthday greetings and for your kind words about the puppy. He is doing well, and has really started to show his true colors - he is chewing everything in sight - shoes, plants, handbags, ears and noses (especially my ears and nose). He is damn cute though, and I would love to take him in myself, but my sister has first dibs and she is just as smitten with him. He is a smart little bugger and at only 9 weeks, if you throw a ball, he chases it and brings it back. hehe so cute.

I have been well. The metformin sideeffects have mostly settled down now that I know what not to eat (thank you sooooo much). I have been doing the Synarel nasal spray for a week now, and so far so good. Apart from a disgusting taste in my mouth about 5 mins after I do the nasal spray it is not too bad. I haven't had any of the bad side effects that I have been warned about. I am very rational and had no emotional outburts or anything.

Today I did a blood test and my Oestrogen (E2) is 133. If it was over 200 they wouldn't have let me start the injections but because it is under 200, tomorrow night I get to start the injections - 150iu of Gonal-F. I keep doing the nasal spray still though.

Next Friday 1st December I go do another blood test and ultrasound to see how my "litter" of eggs is developing.

It feels great that my body is responding nicely to the medication.
For once!

I might even get to do some knitting! Oh my, I hope I remember how.

Bugs - great news about the response to the drugs. It's already a good start!

As for knitting - I have recently started to knit a jumper - its totally addictive! I went to Spotlight last night and spent hours checking out the yarn and the bits and bops.

You better get on with the knitting woman - I want to see you show case some more of your pieces!
