Red Light, Green Light

Did you ever play that game, "Red Light, Green Light" as a kid? Or is this just some random game that my crew of friends created back in the day?

Well yesterday was definitely a red light kind of day. And not THAT kind of red light. AHEM. Let's keep it classy, Internetz.

The attack of the giant cyst on my left ovary left the possibility of this cycle in a pretty precarious situation. It was up to my hormones to save the day and let me still go ahead this month.

But today? Today is a green light day.

Let's give it up for this cyst, Internetz, because fortunately it is NOT an estrogen-producing cyst! This means that I am good to go! Femara was started last night.

I went back to the clinic this morning to pick up the Follistim (aka Puregon for my fellow Canuck friends). $700 later and a paper bag filled with enough needles, syringes, and meds to make me choke, I have until Monday to prepare myself for my first injection in months.

So I am indeed back in the game. Tune in Monday for my pre-injection meltdown!

Glad to hear that bob didn't keep you from cycling :)

Heather said...

I loved that game!! Now I would probably blow my knee out...

YAY!! As a general rule I hate cysts but I'll give this one a high-five.`

Hannah said...

So glad you're in the game! Although I do always groan seeing all those needles and syringes too. Take care.

I loved that game too! That one and "Steal the Bacon".
So glad about your cyst.

Kelly said...

So glad you have the green light.

I hate those paper bags filled with syringes. You'd think they could come up with a cute designed bag or something for how much they cost! Sheesh.

lindsey said...

woo hoo! The good news is you are brave enough to needle yourself. I have to have the MIL do it. Good Luck!

Happy SITS Saturday Sharefest

Oh yay! That is such great news!!

And OMG the Follitism is SO expensive - does your insurance cover any of it? Since I'll *hopefully* be starting injectibles next cycle, I have no idea what to expect. We have insurance that covers the meds (90% of it at least) so I'm trying to figure out how much we'll have to come up with at the pharmacy - or will the RE's office give me the meds? I guess I should just ask them on Monday when I go for my HSG - I just am so worried about the up front cost!

I'm so excited for you!!!! :) :)

When you mentioned red light green light it brought back a memory of playing it on horseback! We had such fun.

I'm so glad that your cyst is not producing estrogen.

Hooray for green lights!

Great news!!! Delighted for you, come on come on, let this be your time, I know I'm not cycling with you but I'll pretend I am and act as fertility goddess for once without being directly involved! Love, Fran

Yay green light!

Tiffany said...

Yes! I loved red light green light, and Mother may I...lol. Let the shooting up begin!

I am so happy you didn't have to warm the bench this month. I wish my RE was like yours when it came to cysts!!!!!!! GOOD LUCK!

Allison said...

Hooray for a non-interfering cyst!! (Isn't is strange the things we will cheer for?)

Good luck!!!

zengirl said...

Woohoo! Green Light! Go go go! I just shot a cannonball of baby dust your way ;-)

finch said...

You're going to be too excited about this cycle for a pre-injection meltdown!

IF Optimist, then... said...

So glad that you got the green light. Stupid cysts. My clinic wouldn't let me cycle with one in the ovary. Had to be gone or aspirated, even when it wasn't affecting E2 levels. They may have been overly picky with me because I am an old geezer. Ha ha ha ha.

Wow! $700! I know injectibles are a lot of money, but it still surprises me to see it in black and white.

Congrats on the green light!

I've been having a few "red light" days lately too... Wouldn't mind a "green light" sometime soon! :)

Crossed Fingers said...

Yea for the green light! I hope that was the best $700 you ever spent and you get your BFP this cycle!

The (Type A) Nightmare said...

Whoohoo!!! Can I just say that I KNEW IT! I totally knew this cyst would be irrelevant in the journey. Yay! So is today injection day? You're so much better than me. Let us know how it goes. Hugs!

pcostory said...

So glad the cyst isn't interfering with your cycle! You've got to be really flexible in the IF game because everything is different from one day to the next!! Keep strong with injectables, I am going to need some good vines starting my first injectable cycle next month!
